REVIEW : Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson


Emily is about to take some risks and have the most unexpected summer ever in this new novel from the bestselling author of Second Chance Summer and Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour.

Before Sloane, Emily didn’t go to parties, she barely talked to guys, and she didn’t do anything crazy. Enter Sloane, social tornado and the best kind of best friend—someone 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 with thirteen bizarre tasks that Emily would never try. But what if they can lead her to Sloane?

Apple picking at night? Okay, easy enough.

Dance until dawn? Sure. Why not?

Kiss a stranger? Wait…what?

Getting through Sloane’s list will mean a lot of firsts, and with a whole summer ahead of her—and with the unexpected help of the handsome Frank Porter—who knows what she’ll find.

Go Skinny Dipping? Um…


To be honest I haven't read this much contemporary yet, but I definitly wanna read more, and with this book I'm in a total contemporary mood!

I loved it!

I think the characters are so handsome you just cannot hate or dislike them and I really liked the way Emily 'grew up' throughout the book.
It was so amazing to see the shy girl to get outcoming and having fun in public, to get brave.

And I loved Frank from the second Emily first met him!

I also really liked that the romance wasn't in the main focus like it is in most contemporaries (so far I read) but was a funny and really cute site theme.

And yeah.. first of all I didn't really liked Emily's parents but at least from the 'Livingroom Theater' scene I really liked them. (NO real SPOILERS!)

 And I think the ending was sooooo cute,but also really open, that I would really appreciate a sequel !

Wouldn't that be awesome? I think so !

So of course, if you cannot already tell, I gave this gorgeous book

I really recommened it to everybody who hasn't read it yet and also to non-contemporary fans !

This book is unique and I hope it will last so.
