I really LOVED this book! Definently 5/5 stars! I love how light and easy this book was. It made me feel everything Emily was feeling, like she was my best friend. And I absolutely loved the relationship between Frank & Emily. I loved how their was just a touch of romance at the end. Most books are too lovey dovey right away. And this one just floated. Loved it!

5/5 stars. This book was cute, light, funny, and i loved it. I loved the idea of having a friend that writes a list and you have to cross that stuff off the list. Can‘t wait to meet up with my friend to discuss the book!

This cutesy summer story about Emily's best friend Sloane disappearing without a word and leaving behind nothing but a list of tasks for timid, shy Emily to complete should have been a sweet read but this was TAME. It's not like I wanted these kids to be doing crack cocaine but with tasks like apple picking and riding a horse on the list, this book wasn't indicative of real teenagers and ended up feeling shallow and unworthy of my attention.

SO SO SO CUTE! The relationships in this book are really what made it for me. Matson has the ability to make you truly care about the characters she writes. Frank was perfection in the shape of a teenage boy and I LOVE him!

Rated 5/5 on gr :)

This was such a cute and fun read. Emily friend Sloan has pushed her out of her comfort zone by having her do things that she never thought she would do. But what is Emily to do when Sloane just disappears one day and a letter comes in the mail with 13 things that Sloane wants Emily to do over the summer. Some things are easy but some really push Emily. It was fun to see Emily do the task and make new friends over the summer. Cute YA book!

APLitlife Great read. I recommend to my students often. 1y

My husband is my best friend and today is our 3-year anniversary! So speaking of best friends, I loved Emily and Sloane in Since You‘ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson. Such a cute story!

VeganCleopatra I once saw a woman on Twitter horrified by the idea of calling her husband her best friend. She said she'd literally divorce him if he ever said that and I think she meant it. I'm still baffled by it. Ha. 1y

I loved this book! I actually liked The Unexpected Everything, a little more, but this was definitely a good read. A little laughter, tears, and heartache were evident when i was reading this. A YA contemporary perfect for a summer beach read.

Since You‘ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson is a breezy, yet heartfelt tale of friendship and finding yourself. It‘s an easy read as the writing is effortless & conversational, plus you‘ll likely find yourself getting lost in Emily‘s many escapades as she strives to discover just what Sloane is trying to tell her through this list. In all, this novel is a fun summer read guaranteed to make you laugh and reminisce about crazy summers of the past.

I don‘t read many YA novels these days, but something about summertime makes me crave cute contemporary books. This was just want I was hoping for! I appreciated that the story focused more on friendship than on romance.

vkois88 I know I had this at one point... I'll have to look to see if I rehomed it 🤔🤔🤔 If I did, it was probably because I felt like I was drowning in unread books!! 1y
Amanda.T @vkois88 I feel you on that! Looking at all of the unread books on my shelves stresses me out sometimes. I purge all the time, but then go out and buy more books. 🤦🏻‍♀️ 1y

This was recommended to me by a couple of teen girls. They will be so pleased that I finally read it. A wonderful tale of best friends who will be apart for the summer. It is wonderful. I am so, so thankful it wasn‘t another dystopian novel.

The pages with the soundtracks are definitely fillers, but the songs I like, so I ain't mad about it. I honestly didn't know what to expect with this book. Even though I didn't like the ending chapters, which felt all thrown together, I found myself not putting down this book because it made me feel so happy, in a way! 4/5⭐️

At the beginning of this book I didn't think I'd continue reading it but I'm glad I stuck it out.

I loved the evolution of Emily. She really grew and found herself without Sloane guiding her or telling her what to do.

Day 9: Summer drink #augustlibrary17
My favorite summer drink is orange juice with Malibu and of course I love taking my pineapple cup to beach to drink it! So yummy! What's your go to summer drink?
Also, does anyone else start singing "Since U Been Gone" by Kelly Clarkson when they see this book? Because I do EVERY.SINGLE.TIME! ?

I quite liked "Amy On The Summer Road" but was disappointed with this one. I expected a light, cute summer-read but instead got flat and boring characters and the glorification of a toxic "friendship". The main character Emily has always contented herself with doing what her best friend Sloane thought was cool and never learned to live, talk and think for herself and seems to think that's normal. Also the story is predictable.Nice playlists though

Up until the last 75 pages or so, this was a 5 star book. However some things happened that I severely didn't like. Other than that, the book was fun, funny, and fast paced for a perfect summer read!

Emily y Sloane siempre han sido mejores amigas. Pero, antes del que debería ser el mejor verano, Sloane desaparece. Y lo único que deja es una lista de trece tareas que Emily jamás haría. Pero ¿y si sirvieran para que Sloan regrese? ¿Coger manzanas por la noche? Vale, fácil. ¿Besar a un desconocido? Eh... Emily ahora se enfrenta a un verano lleno de sorpresas con la ayuda inesperada de Frank para cumplir con las tareas. ¿Nadar desnuda? ¿qué?⭐️⭐️⭐️

Another enjoyable book. I liked that this book swapped from present to past, but never got confusing. I liked the idea of this book, with the bucket list sort of idea. I enjoyed basically all of the characters, except the ones that you aren't meant to, like Sam. And I liked seeing Emily develop and grow throughout this book.

Have you read this? What did you think of it?!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This book was a really beautiful read that I enjoyed thoroughly. It was a light story, but one that managed to make me cry anyways. It shows how life can turn out to be so much more, if only you dare to try new things. Matson also conveys how sometimes, even though you think you know someone, you probably only know one side of them. One side of them, which sometimes people put up as part of an act to hide their insecurities.
