Reseña del editor
Emily is about to take some risks and have the most unexpected summer ever in this new novel from the bestselling author of Second Chance Summer and Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour.
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…

For the last two years, Em and Sloane have been the best of friends. So when Em returns home after a family trip to discover that Sloane and her family have completely disappeared, she’s beyond shocked. Even more so when a list comes in the mail in Sloane’s handwriting, detailing what Em is supposed to do for the summer. Left without any other options, Em follows the instructions and discovers that she may be just as strong on her own as she is with her friend. Em gets a job, begins new friendships, hangs out with her brother and more in the summer she never expected to have.
A great story about self discovery and how we can often left our friends define who we are instead of defining ourselves. Em’s journey was fascinating, even if it’s from the perspective of a lost sixteen year old girl. Watching Em grow as a character is the best part about this book, and how she finds her inner strength to explore her past decisions and makes better future ones based on it. All of the side characters were very well developed and never felt one dimensional; they read like people the reader would meet in real life instead of a flat character in a book.
One criticism to be noted on this work is the length. It was about 450 pages which can be daunting. Also when reading, there seemed to be a lot of details on places/people/things that weren’t extremely important to the book. For tweens who are reluctant readers this would not be ideal. For voracious teen readers it shouldn’t be a problem. This book may be for the older tweens, but the content was fairly clean. Not too many curse words, and no more than a few kisses in the romance department
At first Emily is confused because all she wants to know if where Sloane basically is and why did she drop her like a hot potato?!? She just wants her best friend back. Throughout the book she starts checking items off her list and making some new friendships with Frank, Dawn, and Collins. I really liked her friendship with Frank and it didn't really matter to me that they started to develop a relationship towards the end of the book either (even though it was completely adorable). Dawn was a quick friendship, although I really think she should have forgiven Emily for kissing Frank (who was in a relationship at the time) because he did kiss her back too and she felt horrible. It was basically a kiss in the moment (it was awfully romantic with the rain and her car not having an actual window in her sunroof. SHE COULDN'T HELP HERSELF NOR COULD HE. Stupid Dawn. Then there's Collin, he was pretty cool in the beginning, wait scratch that, he was kind of a tool. But he does all of a sudden gets butthurt because Frank wanted to hang out with Emily and Dawn while hanging out with Collins himself. Like I get it, they don't hang out all the time in the summer because he's always away at Princeton for a summer program with his "girlfriend" but come on Collins, he like you can hang out with all of his friends whenever he wants.
Oh yes "girlfriend" because I mean they barely talk while she's away and I can't remember if it was mentioned how long they've been dating but I mean its summer...you call each other. Then she doesn't come home for his birthday because she had a feeling that if she did they would break up...I mean come on. That is when you break up people!!! Plus I felt bad that Emily, who was on her way to pick up his girlfriend from Princeton, got a call from her and she basically had to turn around in traffic to go back home. Talk about a shitty girlfriend.
Back to Sloane, what kind of person just ups and leaves without giving their best friend any warning?!? Also the whole not picking up Emily's phone calls or answering her texts was kind of mean but I get that Sloane just didn't want to treat Emily like all of her past friendships...I just wished she went about it in a different way. I am so happy that at the end of the book they made a deal that they would continue to talk to one another and not let their friendship go to waste. Now that's true friendship.
ANYWAYS this book was fantastic! All of the characters were written to perfection. I love the friendships/relationships and how the story worked out so well. I would definitely recommend this book to all of my friends. Go read this book!
Sloane and Emily had the type of all-encompassing friendship where they are constantly together and if they’re not together then they are thinking about being together, so being apart is all that consumes Emily’s thoughts until she really starts tackling her list. In Sloane’s absence Emily is forced to make new friends and realize that she’s more than just Sloane’s shadow, and that she has merits on her own. In addition to Emily’s adventures, this book features flashbacks to certain points in Emily and Sloane’s friendship, and there’s also the ongoing mystery of what happened to Sloane. I was prepared to be really irritated when we finally find Sloane again (who ditches their best friend with no warning???), but the conclusion to the story was surprisingly bittersweet.
There’s nothing ground breaking about this novel, but it was well written (SAT vocabulary alert!), and all of the characters were fleshed out quite wonderfully. In particular, I got a laugh every time Emily’s playwright parents were mentioned as well as her little brother Beckett who enjoyed nothing more than climbing the walls (literally). For older readers, this is a fun book that will constantly have you thinking back to your own teenage years!
