Summary from Amazon.co.uk:

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…


Morgan Matson is one of my very favourite contemporary writers. She's brilliant. I still love Amy and Roger's Epic Detour like mad and Since You've Been Gone sounds equally as brilliant. I've also been hearing great reviews from US readers from this one - I hope I like it as much as them!

I want to read this one too, the cover is gorgeous and I really enjoyed Amy & Roger's Epic Detour. I still haven't read her second book while I think of it.

I ordered this in from the US when it was released and still haven't got around to it! I know I'll love it though - USYA contemp at its best.
