Since You've Been Gone
By Morgan Matson
Release Date: May 6, 2014Summary: The Pre-Sloane Emily didn't go to parties, she barely talked to guys, she didn't do anything crazy. Enter Sloane, social tornado and the best kind of best friend—the one who yanks you out of your shell.But right before what should have been an epic summer, Sloane just... disappears. No note. No calls. No texts. No Sloane. There’s just a random to-do list. On it, thirteen Sloane-selected-definitely-bizarre-tasks that Emily would never try... unless they could lead back to her best friend. Apple Picking at Night? Ok, easy enough.Dance until Dawn? Sure. Why not? Kiss a Stranger? Wait... what?
Getting through Sloane’s list would mean a lot of firsts. But Emily has this whole unexpected summer ahead of her, and the help of Frank Porter (totally unexpected) to check things off. Who knows what she’ll find?
Go Skinny Dipping? Um…
How awesome does this book sound? Where the heck did Sloane go? And how is Emily going to get through that list when she was a complete introvert before she became friends with Sloane? I'm excited to see how Emily can get through this list (with the help of, what it sounds like, a potential romance) and how she develops as a person as she goes completely out of her shell to complete a list the old her would have never done.
