Publisher's Summary

Father of the Bride meets Sixteen Candles in the latest novel from New York Times best-selling author Morgan Matson. 

Charlie Grant’s older sister is getting married this weekend at their family home, and Charlie can’t wait - for the first time in years, all four of her older siblings will be under one roof. Charlie is desperate for one last perfect weekend before the house is sold and everything changes. The house will be filled with jokes and games and laughs again. Making decisions about things like what college to attend and reuniting with longstanding crush Jesse Foster - all that can wait. She wants to focus on making the weekend perfect. 

The only problem? The weekend is shaping up to be an absolute disaster. There’s the unexpected dog with a penchant for howling, the house alarm that won’t stop going off, and a papergirl with a grudge. There are the relatives who aren’t speaking, the (awful) girl her favorite brother brought home unannounced, and a missing tuxedo. Not to mention the neighbor who seems to be bent on sabotage and a storm that is bent on drenching everything. The justice of the peace is missing. The band will play only covers. The guests are all crazy. And the wedding planner’s nephew is unexpectedly, distractingly...cute. 

Over the course of three ridiculously chaotic days, Charlie will learn more than she ever expected about the family she thought she knew by heart. And she’ll realize that sometimes, trying to keep everything like it was in the past means missing out on the future.

Worth the Credit

This book was filled with so much humor and emotions. The narrator does such a wonderful job, which becoming harder and harder to find lately. Everything that comes out of JJ's mouth is HYSTERICAL! One of my lol moments was at the dinner rehearsal when he has to take the call..lmao.

Charlie loves her family and is so excited for everyone to come back to their house to celebrate her sisters wedding. The story starts out when the wedding plans don't go as smoothly as they should. Charlie steps up trying to balance her family, some romance and a dog name waffle.

Not impressed

This was a long story. I was not aware that book was for young adults but I think that a younger person would not even enjoy this book. The entire book centered around the youngest sibling who acted as if she ran the family. The family mishaps were boring. The wedding was unbelievable and all the things leading up to the wedding were just silly events the author used to add more paves . The narrator was horrible....if you are thinking about getting this book.........save your money

Surprised at how much I enjoyed this!

I teach reading to 7th graders. So I read this book because I knew they-the girls in particular- would enjoy it. What surprised me was how much I enjoyed this! It was more than just your typical wedding story that practically everything goes wrong. The characters were fleshed out, and I felt like I “knew” them. I can’t wait to share this book with my 7th graders in August!
