"The cinema-worthy rom-com of your summer reading dreams." --Bustle "A sparkling summer story ideal for teens who are on that bittersweet cusp of change." --Booklist "[A] romantic comedy of errors." --Publishers Weekly Father of the Bride meets Sixteen Candles in the latest novel from New York Times bestselling 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, 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 only play 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.… (més)

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, and she just wants all her siblings together again in one place before their parents sell the house and she goes off to college. Is that too much to ask for? But some siblings have been estranged, others may bring home uninvited guests, and then you just have those oddball family members that make life fun. This book capitalizes on that natural family feel and just makes you smile as the chaos of the wedding day ramps up.

Please excuse typos/name misspellings. Entered on screen reader. ( )

I went through stages of laughing at the chaos, disbelief that things were still falling apart, then actually laughing out loud as everything just kept getting more crazy. It made me smile! ( )

I would probably give it a 3.5 if I had the option. The main character was annoying in the way teenage girls often are but she did eventually grow and learn and become more mature. Also, the idea of the "perfect" wedding is a little ridiculous to me (now that I've been married for 14 years, it's easy to dismiss the panic). But the book was funny and I found myself turning pages to see what would happen next so clearly my irritations were not deal breakers. ( )

Charlie's sister is getting married and the whole family will be together, all five siblings and their parents. What could possibly go wrong? Everything--starting when the wedding planner vanishes after accusations of embezzlement. Charlie's parents are selling the house everyone grew up in, the comic strip based on her family is ending, and Charlie, the baby, will be going to college in the fall. Everything is ending, and Charlie doesn't handle change well. She just wants everything to be like it was at least one last time. Charlie is a fixer, the one who smooths things over, and a peacemaker. She also hasn't been seeing things as they really are, in part because of her age, and in part because she just didn't want to. Watching her grow into her adulthood is a pleasure.

Ms. Matson does a great job getting into the head of Charlie and depicting a chaotic wedding weekend made worse by the insertion of a retirement, and a national TV appearance. This is a heartfelt and touching depiction of a family that loves each other. I loved seeing Charlie's growth from family baby to more adult sibling, as she saw siblings and parents as themselves and not the heroes she'd made them in her mind. ( )
