My family received an advance copy of the audio CD version of this book. We listened to it traveling up the California coast a few weeks ago. The car has never been so captivated (or quiet) during a road trip as it was when we listened to this audio book. Truly a pleasure! Judith Clarke and Gretal Montgomery are a winning combination. The writing is clever, fun, and appropriate for all ages. The narration skillfully conveys the sense of the text to the listener at all times (the Australian accent is pleasant and subtle- just enough and not overpowering for my daughters' understanding). Hope to see more books/audio from this combination.

i really enjoyed this book! i thought the plot was laid out well and the amount of coincidences made the story interesting! i love the eccentricity added to all the characters and their individuality. definitely worth reading!

the whole book is basically built on Lily having her 'perfect day that's whole' but in the book lily doesn't even have the party, and there's no action with that daniel steadman guy. The ending was too abrupt and the book is basically about her family and their problems.. not much about there with lily just that she was so looking forward to the party but the book ended without there even being a party... just the before celebration and how it 'is' going to be a perfect day with everybody there to celebrate pop's birthday.

This book started out slow, and I had my doubts. As I kept reading though, I learned more about the characters and found something to like about each of them. The book switches nararators, which keeps it interesting. The story is great and revolves around all the characters in different ways, making it a very good book.

The Samsons are no ordinary family. There's the endearing grandmother May, the stout and stubborn Pop, and their daughter Marigold. Then there is the dreamy and 'poetic' Lonnie, and Lily, the only 'sensible' one in in the clan. As May plans Pop's eighieth birthday party, Lily desperately tries to reconcile Lonnie and Pop from a falling out over college majors and Lonnie's shiftlessness...All she hopes for is that 'one whole and perfect day'-the day her family can never seem to have. A novel filled with unexpected twists and turns, each hilarious character makes the book worth reading, and the sharp and often humorous prose becomes a surprising ending, one riddled with serendipity.
