Book: Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson.
Synopsis: It was Sloane who yanked Emily out of her shell and made life 100% interesting. But right before what should have been the most epic summer, Sloane just…disappears. All she leaves behind is a to-do list.
On it, thirteen Sloane-inspired tasks that Emily would normally never try. But what if they could bring her best friend back?
Apple picking at night? Okay, easy enough.
Dance until dawn? Sure. Why not?
Kiss a stranger? Um…
Emily now has this unexpected summer, and the help of Frank Porter (totally unexpected), to check things off Sloane’s list. Who knows what she’ll find?
Go skinny-dipping? Wait…what?
- Grab a book, any book.
- Turn to page 56 or 56% in you E-Reader. (If you have to improvise, that’s okay.)
- Find any sentence, (or few, just don’t spoil it)
- Post it.
- Add your URL post below in the Linky. (Add the post URL, not your blog URL.)
We’d gone there one afternoon a week before I went upstate and Sloane disappeared. We’d had milkshakes – vanilla for me, coffee for her – and lain out on the picnic tables for hours in the sun, just talking.

Sounds interesting. Thanks for sharing. Have a great day!
Good description in your excerpt. Sounds like a delightful way to spend a summer day.
My Friday post features HOOT.
Since You Have Been Gone keeps showing up on the librarys ebook page for me. Seeing this snippet makes me wondering more about it, I will have to give it a try some time. Happy Friday!
I enjoyed this story especially because of the way the main character grew and changed through it. I hope you enjoy it too. I have Soundless by Richelle Mead this week. Happy reading!
I need to read this one. I loved Second Chance Summer. 🙂
I LOVED Second Chance Summer too! 🙂
Happy Weekend to you too!
I’ve been on the fence about trying this one. The snippet does draw me in though. 🙂
