Waiting on Wednesday: Since You've Been Gone

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!


  1. Morgan Matson's definitely on my auto-buy list after Amy & Roger's Epic Detour, and Second Chance Summer strengthened my need to read more of her books, lol! I can't wait for this one too! :))
