Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine.

Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson
Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson
Publication date: May 6, 2014

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…

Since You’ve Been Gone is one of my favorite Kelly Clarkson songs, so I was immediately drawn to the book by its title. It sounds really good! I hope we find out in the end what happened to Sloane.

Sloane seems to be a popular name in YA these days.

  6. After Amy&Roger and Second Chance Summer, ANY books from Morgan Matson is a must read for me. I initially wasn’t that interested after reading the synopsys of this one, but well, I can’t just ignore a book with THAT kind of COVER, right? It’s such an awesome cover!
