Review+Discussion: Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson

Author: Morgan Matson

Publisher: Simon & Schuster (May 6th, 2014)

Genre: Contemporary

Pages: 464


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…

Spoiler Free Review:

This book is probably the best YA contemporary book I've ever read. I'm not a HUGE fan of contemporary books, BUT this book was wonderful. I fell in love with this novel from the very first page! The plot was so simple but yet so original, the characters and their developement was so well done by the author that they change completely through the book, especially Emily, the main character.
I loved how every chapter ended. Overtime, the main character accomplish something good or bad, and it's like she takes a step forward, which is amazing.
I completely fell in love with the author's writing style. I loved the fancy music playlist and now I want to listen and discover new songs! I also loved the typography of messages and letters that Emily writes or sends.
The ending is so fantastic, I adored it! It's so amazingly done. The characters change completely from what they are in the beginning. It's fantastic! I love character developement!
I'll probably be obsessed with this book for a very long time!♥∞
