Booklist Reviews 2018 April #2

For Charlie Grant, the rest of the world stops mattering when all her siblings are together. At 17, she's the youngest of five, and she's had a picture-perfect life—a fact that's been well documented in her mother's crazy-popular fictionalized comic strip, Grant Central Station. Of course, it's not as perfect as Charlie's rose-colored glasses sometimes cause her to believe—that comic strip is the reason her brother Mike has stopped coming home. But now, their sister Linnie is getting married, just before their parents sell the family home, and all Charlie's siblings are coming back for one last hurrah in the place where they grew up. For Charlie, things aren't changing that much; she's decided to attend college at the local school where her dad teaches instead of moving away. But as the wedding arrives, chaos ensues: the wedding planner quits, family drama erupts, and Charlie starts to realize that even the best-laid plans aren't laid in stone. A sparkling summer story ideal for teens who are on that bittersweet cusp of change themselves. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.

Charlotte (Charlie) Grant is looking forward to spending the weekend celebrating both her sister's wedding and her famous cartoonist mom's final comic strip about their big family. Of course, nothing goes as planned. Wedding snafus, fights, secrets, a cute wedding planner, a strange dog...this frequently hilarious and poignant novel will make readers feel they're part of the affable Grant family, too.

PW Reviews 2018 April #2

Set during a single weekend, Matson's (Since You've Been Gone) latest novel is full of appealing elements: the promise of a sister's wedding; a big, close-knit family; a mother who draws a famous comic strip; an estranged brother, who's returned for the big event; and plenty of unexpected guests, all packed under the Grant family roof. In a madcap series of events and in lightning-quick dialogue among family members, Matson explores absolutely everything that could go wrong under the circumstances. Protagonist Charlie narrates the weekend's ups and downs, handling two potential suitors along the way, but neither romance quite comes together amid the constant chaos. As the wedding fails stack up (the wedding planner disappears, as does a tuxedo, and the house alarm keeps going off), Matson introduces more emotionally resonant events impacting the family. There are no perfect weddings, or perfect families, Matson suggests in this romantic comedy of errors. Ages 12–up. Agent: Emily van Beek, Folio Literary Management. (June)
