Emily's best friend Sloane disappears, almost without a trace - the only thing left behind is a to-do list. On it, thirteen Sloane-inspired tasks that wallflower Emily wouldn't normally do, and definitely not without her best friend.

But what if completing the list could bring Sloane back?

Dance Until Dawn?

Sure. Why not?

Kiss a stranger?

Um . . .

Go skinny dipping?

Wait . . . what?

Emily only has the summer to check everything off Sloane's list.

The question is, what will she find at the end of it?

Morgan Matson formerly worked as a teen book editor. Morgan is a lover of roadtrips, having crossed the USA three times ... so far, and a huge music fan, both passions that fed into her first YA novel Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour. When not writing, she drinks far too much coffee, watches old movies, and plans out her next journey. She lives in California.

    Morgan Matson has been one of my favorite authors for a really long time. I first fell in love with her writing when I read Amy & Roger's Epic Detour, then I read Second Chance Summer, which quickly became on of my favorite books, so I was really excited when I heard about this new book.I was so excited when I got my copy and I wanted to start reading it right away. I was definitely not disappointed.One of the things I loved so much about this book, was the use of both the present moment and the flashbacks. I felt like they were definitely needed, because it allowed us to get to know Sloane and understand Emily's friendship with her. I really loved how the flashbacks tied in with things that were happening to Emily in the present moment.Another fantastic aspect of this book was the inclusion of playlists. I loved that in Amy & Rogers and I loved it here.The characters in this novel were also all fantastic. From main to supporting, I loved everyone and everyone played an interesting role.I especially loved the relationship between Emily and Frank. I liked how this was played out subtly, and it didn't overshadow the list and everything connected with that.The list itself was great, there were some interesting things on there, and I really liked that each chapter dealt with a different part of that list.I also loved how by working on the list, and making new friends with Sloane out of the picture, Emily was able to make a lot of really great character growth.All in all this is a fantastic read, and I highly recommend not only this book, but Morgan Matson's other work as well.

    This book was the slowest most painful book I have ever read. Like seriously I do not know how it gets sooo many great reviews.. maybe I'm just too old to read it.. but I just found it went at an incredibly slow pace and the only time it picked up was around 70% of the way through. This book is not for me

    Predictable and boring .. no real plot line.

    I have heard so many people recommend Morgan Matson, supposedly it doesn't matter which book you choose of hers they are all good supposedly, she is one of those authors that you must read. This is my first book by this author and I wasn't disappointed. When books are hyped up and everyone and their mother are raving about the book, I am always ready to try and find something that I don't like about the book.Emily wakes up one morning to find her best friend Sloane gone! There was no previous conversation of Sloane going on holiday at all but when Emily tries to contact her it just goes to voicemail. The only thing that Emily does have is a list.... a list of things to complete.... such as go skinny dipping, kiss a stranger, hug a Jamie etc etc. Emily starts to think that if she completes all of these things on her to do list her friend will return and life can resume as it was. The problem is Emily doesn't know where to start and because her and Sloane have been joined at the hip for the past 2 years she has no other friends, confidence issues and extremely shy. The race is on to complete the list and get her friend back for good.This is one of those books that gives you all the feels, during the course of this book I got angry, I laughed and also swooned. There are so many great things about this book that I just don't know where to begin, there are so many different elements involved. The book is told from Emily's POV all the way through but skips back and forth to the past and the present which gives you more of an understanding of the girls friendship and also keeps you hooked. I really enjoyed the fact that Matson included the playlists that were used when Emily and Frank were running together, it was good to see that there was modern and older music that they bonded over.The relationship between Emily and Frank was really well executed. There was no insta-love here - it was a gradual process of becoming friends to more, I liked the fact that the relationship didn't take over the list and her finding Sloane. The Characters were really well developed, I mean all of them were equally fleshed out and you see so much growth in Emily over the course of the book that it's literally heart warming. At first I found her shyness and lack of confidence annoying. I loved Collin's - he just made me laugh all the time, Frank Porter was a sweet character all the way throughout really caring - sometime he felt a bit stalkerish as he was always around or just turned up exactly where Emily was, but he also had his own problems too. Morgan Matson's writing is so fun and easy to read - you just eat it right up.This is definitely a book for anyone who wants a book with friendships and Romance, also if you are a fan of Rainbow Rowell I would give this one a go. I will definitely be reading her other books which are second chance summer and Amy and Roger's epic detour.I rated this 4.5 out 5 stars

    This book embraced me like a hug until I was swamped, immersed in warmth and friendship. Feeling simultaneously blown away and totally absorbed, I flew through the book, devouring chunks until I reluctantly had to work or sleep.@crushingcinders
