Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme held by Jill at Breaking the Spine to feature upcoming books that we can't wait to get our hands on.
Title: Since You've Been Gone
Author: Morgan Matson
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Date of Release: May 6, 2014
Goodreads Description: 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 ...
Why am I waiting? After loving both Amy and Roger's Epic Detour and Second Chance Summer, I'd have to say that Morgan Matson has become one of my favourite YA contemporary authors. Any book written by her is one I'm interested in reading!
