The Pre-Sloane Emily
didn't go to parties, she barely talked to guys, she didn't do anything
crazy. Enter Sloane, social tornado and the best kind of best friend—the
one 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. On it, thirteen
Sloane-selected-definitely-bizarre-tasks that Emily would never try...
unless they could lead back to her best friend. Apple Picking at Night?
Ok, easy enough.Dance until Dawn? Sure. Why not? Kiss a Stranger?
Getting through Sloane’s list would mean a lot of
firsts. But Emily has this whole unexpected summer ahead of her, and the
help of Frank Porter (totally unexpected) to check things off. Who
knows what she’ll find?
Go Skinny Dipping? Um...
Everyone had so many great things to say about this book so i decided, why not? and it takes place in this time of the year, summer, which would be a perfect summer read.
The story is told by Emily, and it starts at the beginning of the summer. The plot goes sometimes to the past where you get to know moments of Emily and Sloane together. At the beginning I don't know why but the plot didn't seem too interesting for me apart from the list. I decided to still give it a try since I had already started reading it and I can't just stop reading a book, which I am glad I did. Because around chapter I FINALLY got into the story which i ended up loving, the book is great.
At first I didn't really like Emily, because while being in her shell I thought she was just too annoying. But then you see some character growth and specially that is what kept me interested in the story, how Emily was finally deciding for herself instead of being dragged by Sloane to do things.
The love interests AHHHHHHHHH <3 just perfect.
I recommend this book, because it might not have worked so much in the beginning for me, but a lot of people loved it and its a really great summer read.
