I LOVED LOVED LOVED this book. So many amazing books being released this summer and this made the perfect light, fun read. I went into it expecting somewhat of a romance, because the other MM books I’ve read have had that touch of romance, but it turns out this book is focused much more on family. And I truly loved the way SAVE THE DATE turned the Grant family inside out, exposing all their scars, as they prepare for the wedding of the oldest daughter.
Youngest daughter Charlie is the narrator, ...more
thank you so much to simon & schuster for sending me a full copy in exchange for an honest review
this isn’t a book about romance. this is a book about learning to accept change and move on. it was exactly what i needed.
full review to come.
This book was so cute! I mean, to be expected just from the author, but it was absolutely adorable! And weddings!
This was a beautiful contemporary, but it was't a romance novel (I too was surprised by this). The romance only had like twelve pages, and though I really wish there was more, I'm also glad that there wasn't because I feel like it would have taken away from the story.
This book is all about family relationships in all their complexity, and it was so well done. There was so much happen ...more
This cover is literally the cuuuuutest.
With that being said, I don’t think I have too much to say about the plot. I did find the protagonist to be irritating for a lot of the book.

Even though Charlie was both blind and judgmental at the beginning of the book, I love that she is able to learn from her mistakes. Her growth is so organic. She certainly sees mo ...more
Only two years until the next Morgan Matson book
Another great coming of age story by Morgan Matson
Not as well-developed as the Unexpected Everything (my review) or as soul-searching as Since You've Been Gone (my review) BUT nevertheless a fun and relatable story, full of jokes, family imbalance, growing up and romantic interests.
What is it about?
Charlie Grant has been looking forward to her sister Linnie's wedding for a very long time. Her best memories are those with her older siblings, but since they've all moved out, it's hard to find al ...more
Beautiful. One of my favorite contemporaries in recent memory. This is Morgan Matson's best.
I LOVED the crazy Grant family. Their dialogue and personalities are unmatched. I would have wanted a bit more depth from the parents or more interaction between them and a few of the kids, but I love every bit of what this family represents - their very real struggles and conflicts.
Although I definitely favor Charlie, J.J. is the real MVP.
PLEASE read this fun, hilarious new book as soon as possible.
