Reseña del editor
A perfect summertime read for fans of John Green, Stephanie Perkins, and Sarah Dessen: 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? 'Some books leave a very real mark on you and Since You've Been Gone is one of those utterly brilliant books' - The Guardian 'A winning blend of touching moments, memorable characters and situational humor takes readers to a surprising revelation at the story's end.' - Kirkus Reviews 'Morgan Matson is the epitome of YA contemporary.' - Ariel Bissett, Booktuber and blogger

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!
This book is a neat little package wrapped up in a bow. You slowly pull it apart and cannot wait to see what is inside, but the wrapping is so pretty you want to do it delicately. I love this whole book. I didn’t want to go to sleep, I wanted to read. I wanted to hide away with this book and keep it a secret from the world.
The book was so well-paced, all the sudden I looked down and an hour had past and I was over halfway done with the book. I was sucked into the world-building and Emily’s life. I wanted to be part of the list and wished that my friends and I would have done something like that with each other. I especially love the lists Sloane would write for Emily when she was going on vacation.
I know I say I can relate with so many characters, but Emily and I were so on the same page. I had a friend like Sloane and I was her shadow. She was a bright bulb and people really just new me as her friend. I was along for the ride, not enjoying the ride. Once my parents divorced and I had to start at a new school, I had to force myself out of my comfort zone like Emily did.
Sloane was so neat, I can’t help but wish we got more of her in this story. I think Morgan Matson should write this story, but from Sloane’s POV.
I have a new book boyfriend! I have the hugest book crush on Frank. Oh boy, I think he is at the top of my list now!
The only thing would be wanting more Sloane, as I have already mentioned.
“I knew the answer to that immediately. It was like swimming under the stars, like sleeping outside, like climbing a tree in the dark, and seeing the view. It was scary and safe and peaceful and exciting all at the same time. It was the way I felt when I was with him. Like a well-ordered universe.”
