Welcome to Mostly YA Lit’s Unexpectedly Epic Morgan Matson Week (I know, that’s a mouthful)!
I’m so delighted to kick off my weeklong celebration of YA author Morgan Matson’s work. If you’ve read Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour, Second Chance Summer, Since You’ve Been Gone, or The Unexpected Everything, you know that Morgan is an absolute master at capturing the adventure and whimsy of everyday life, the wonder of having great family and friends, and the romances that crop up when you least expect them, the tough parts, the unexpectedly epic parts…
And that’s why I put this week together. It’s not only a celebration of Morgan’s books and writing – it’s a celebration of summer and friendship and family and love and just being grateful for the things that make you happy.
This week, you’ll see reviews, giveaways, and thoughts from me and other bloggers, readers, and publishers on what makes Morgan’s books just click for them, Matson boys, fashion, dogs, and more! And 15 wonderful people around the world will also be taking the #UnexpectedlyEpic dare challenge, doing fun and unique dares inspired by the characters in Since You’ve Been Gone (linky below).
Check out the schedule and follow along and discuss using hashtags #UnexpectedlyEpic and #MorganMatsonWeek! Can’t wait to fangirl with you over Morgan!
