Hi guys, welcome to Day 6 of Morgan Matson Week! It’s the weekend, so today, I’m all about the fun – and what’s more fun than Morgan Matson x dogs? We all know that Morgan adores dogs.

Impressions: Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour | #UnexpectedlyEpic #MorganMatsonWeek

Today for Morgan Matson Week, I’m taking you way, way back to the beginning of my love affair with Morgan Matson’s books to her debut, Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour.
