Morgan Matson broke our heart. Naively, we thought ‘Second Chance Summer’ might just be a fun, quick book, just another breezy, summertime read. But oh no. Bring your Kleenex, lock yourself in your room – really commit to this beautiful, tear-inducing novel.
And we could be rather bitter towards Morgan for ruining our mascara, if it wasn’t for the fact that she’s a total sweetheart. Here are a few of our favourite tweets from this wonderful YA author.
Drafting: this is so hard. I can’t wait until I’m revising and things will be easier Revising: this is SO much harder than just writing

Pretending to be Black Widow is the only way to approach your workout.

And no one can tell you no! Well, they can give you weird looks and question your choices, but they CANNOT TELL YOU NO.
We love it when authors get excited about their own books, and seeing them on book shelves – like, YES, you did it, WE’RE SO PROUD OF YOU.

YA author by day, and by night…well, a YA author, too. If you loved ‘Second Chance Summer’, you might want to check out Katie Finn’s ‘Broken Hearts and Revenge’ series. Not that Katie and Morgan are in any way related. Not at all. What are you talking about? (Your secret’s safe with us, Morgan – sorta).
