Book Review { Since You've Been Gone }

Synopsis: 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 DetourBefore 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 me this book started really slow. I wasn't very interested until the romance part of the book was being brought into it. Clearly, I love romance novels and that is what made the book interesting for me for a small moment. The book to me seemed like a good read for a teenager, someone who could better relate to the characters. There were some exciting moments in the story and you were proud of Emily for accomplishing all she did without her best friend, When I first chose this book to read I was looking for a cute book and it was cute but it just wasn't what I expected. I was excited to read a book about a good girl taking chances and being rebellious but it was more of a tamed rebellion; none of the things she accomplished were all that crazy or rebellious. Maybe it was because it seemed fitted for a younger audience that I didn't enjoy this book as much as I hoped.

Have you read this book? If so, what did you think?
