I'm sorry, but my mind is a bit fuzzy on this. I haven't been quite clear on what she she stole. All I really remember is her failing attempt to get that poster for Sloane and Frank covering up for her.

Sorry if I spoiled it for you. No harsh feelings? Jeri She stole a towel from Frank's neighbors house. Who would this book typically interest?

Watch my interview with Morgan Matson here: Seriously the best book I've read in a while! I am completely obsessed with Morgan Matson's writing and how she can make such a cute story without it being sickly sweet or cheesy!

This is a story that will stick with me for a while and I definitely want to see it become a movie! View all 10 comments. May 07, Emily May rated it it was ok Shelves: That is one possible explanation. The other possible explanation is that this book really is just kinda lame.

And tame. Since You've Been Gone tries to be a cutesy summer story about the friendship between two teenage girls. Which was exactly what I wanted.

It also tries to be a tale about a girl learning to take chances, be a little rebellious and try new things. Misspent youth and all that jazz. And I can totally get into the excitement of a good-girl-gone-bad story of naughty youth days and craziness, but the problem is that none of the things Emily actually does are particularly exciting or dangerous or rebellious. This is like the Sunday school version of rebellion. Not that I expected or wanted these kids to start shooting drugs in their basements and holding orgies Yes, apple-picking makes this very random list of adventurous stuff which Sloane sets for Emily to do.

The main problem I encountered in this book was a complete lack of any tension, excitement or general reasons to care. This is likely partially due to the tasks set out for our protagonist - of which kissing a boy is like the be-all and end-all of human existence - but it also has something to do with the very dry narrative.

I felt zero connection to Emily and zero interest in Sloane. Also, did you know that naked bathing is so rebellious these days? Neither did I. I feel somewhat delighted to know that I throw caution to the wind every morning without even leaving the house.

Okay, I'm joking. So Emily and some friends go skinny-dipping Now, actually standing in front of the water and contemplating swimming in it naked — with my friends — things were no longer seeming quite so simple. Okay, so maybe it's me. But I just don't think swimming naked in some water with your close friends makes you a rebel. Call me a tramp. Maybe it's just because I have the kind of close friends who would and do crazy dance around my room in their birthday suits.

Or maybe it's because Emily built it up to be such a HUGE thing, edging up to the water with a towel around her, freaking out constantly.

Why should I care?

The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson

You took your clothes off and got in the water - go you! I still don't care. I don't feel the need to give you much more than the description when it comes to the plot - basically, Emily's friend Sloane disappears suddenly and stops answering Emily's calls and texts. All Emily has is a list that Sloane left behind, a list of tasks for Emily to complete. Which she does, one by one, hoping they'll lead her to Sloane. It was a quick read that I managed to get through but it was disappointing.

The writing and characters felt flat to me and the attempts at rebellion were unexciting. Lastly, I thought the ending was rushed and made the whole thing seem even more pointless.

The story felt wrapped up too neatly and nicely, when some of the final reveals warranted a more dramatic handling, in my opinion. Oh well, onto the next. View all 59 comments. Jul 07, emma rated it it was amazing Shelves: This is the best Morgan Matson book.

PDF Since You've Been Gone

Now, I can confirm it. This reread bonanza had a lot of bad parts, including, but not limited to: This book has everything. Road trips. Heart-shaped sunglasses. Bucket lists. Fun banter-y groups of friends. The classic contemporary plot format in which everything starts out okay but with definite room for improvement and then gets good and then gets PERFECT and then gets so so so so so bad like even worse than the beginning but then turns perfect again and actually perfect-er than when you thought it was perfect because character development.

And also romance, of course. And this book nails all of that. It is the most fun thing ever. To give a touch of synopsis: We follow Emily, who has literally one friend. Sounds like every character in every other book, am I right? Emily is very shy and introverted, where Sloane is extremely So far.

Bottom line: In other words: View all 30 comments. Jan 03, jessica rated it really liked it. Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson At first i was a bit apprehensive about this book, probably because of its length and the amount of hype its received, but oh my gosh, a book has never lived up more to the hype, and well and truly exceeded my expectations. It was everything I wanted it to be, yet nothing I expected it to be and so much more.

It was a perfect blend Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson At first i was a bit apprehensive about this book, probably because of its length and the amount of hype its received, but oh my gosh, a book has never lived up more to the hype, and well and truly exceeded my expectations.

It was a perfect blend of all the best aspects that a book can give. The characters were amazing, the plot was one of the best I've ever read, the setting was just so vivid that i found myself completely lost in this book and shutting out everything going on around me, this is how you know you love a book. The whole plot of Emily's journey and her character development was written so exceptionally, the romance was one of the best I've ever read, Seriously, someone find me a Frank Porter.

This is definitely a book that's going on my favourites shelf, in-fact one of my favourite books of all time , and will not be forgotten for a realllly long time, it has made a print on my little reading soul, hahaha, It taught me so much about life and about who I should strive to be as a person.

It showed me what real relationships should be like, it provided the most beautiful insight into friendship, and all things to do with becoming who you are. This will most definitely not be my last Morgan Matson book, her writing is amazing! Why has it taken me so long to pick up one of her books? All-in-all, this book was incredible and I'd recommend it to anyone and everyone. Please do yourself a favour and read it. It's honestly changed me for the better View all 12 comments.

Jul 17, karen rated it really liked it Shelves: I reached for a Sloane-chosen outfit - a vintage dress from Twice that I'd worn a lot last summer. But after I put it on, I found myself pulling at the straps, tugging at the hem, not liking what I saw in the mirror.

For some reason, it didn't feel like me any longer. I took it off and changed into the denim skirt I'd bought with Dawn last week and a white eyelet tank top. Feeling more like myself, somehow, I dabbed some makeup on, and made sure to get Frank's present before grabbing my flip-flops and heading back to the car. View all 22 comments. Jul 31, Whitney Atkinson rated it really liked it Shelves: This book was really, really enjoyable! The first pages I was hooked and I loved it, but the book started to lose its luster from then on out.

I thought this book was the perfect summer read and it put me in a great, summery mood. I thought the story was interesting and I was definitely unable to put this book down, hence why i'm writing this review at 3: But really quickly I began to notice that Emily was a bit of a coward. S This book was really, really enjoyable! She was overwhelmingly shy, to the point where she chickened out to do most items on her list the first time, and she was terrified of confrontation.

This was a bit frustrating to read. I found that the overall plot of this book was just predictable. There was no twist that really surprised me, everything kinda fell into place, etc. This really does take on a very cliche moral of "omg im so shy and introverted but oh gee im gonna do this list so that i can break out of my shell and oh gee at the end of this, i'm magically more confident!

Lastly, I just kind of had a problem with Sloane's disappearance. First of all, the reason the book says that she disappeared was totally weird and I feel like Emily would have known about it, like there's no way she could have been taken by surprise that her friend was going.

Other than the weird premises of Sloane disappearing, I realized as I was reading flashback scenes of Sloane and Emily's friendship that Sloane really wasn't that great of a friend. I was wondering why Emily cared so much about a girl that treated her so poorly.

Nevertheless, this book was addicting and the romance-- though a little too angsty for me at parts-- was pleasing. I would recommend it if you're looking for a summer read, but I liked Amy and Roger's Epic Detour better than this one! View all 4 comments. The ones who go into the forest to find you and bring you home. I rarely read young adult contemporaries because I feel like I've outgrown that stage of my life, but Since You've Been Gone gave me all the giddy school girl feels that I've missed from way back when while I was in high school.

I just loved the whole concept of the list and the friendship that Sloane and Emily had. It actually reminded me a lot of me and my best friend and how opposite we really were.

We're about as opposite as people could ever get but we somehow make the best of friends. Sloane and Emily's friendship was nowhere near perfect and sometimes it wasn't pleasant at all, but it was real. Morgan Matson was able to portray the ups and downs, the ugly and the beautiful, and how strong friendships will always endure distance and time. The characters in Since You've Been Gone were definitely the best parts of the book. Frank Porter was such a dreamy book boyfriend and I couldn't stop picturing Ansel Elgort while reading this book!

I loved all the jokes he cracked and the lightness he added to the storyline. Same with Dawn! I really enjoyed Dawn and Emily's friendship, maybe even more than Sloane and Emily's. I was a little disappointed that the rift between Dawn and Emily was never really resolved but I understood completely why Dawn was beyond upset at what Emily did. Hopefully, it will happen but sadly we won't see it happen in this book. Since You've Been Gone was the perfect book to kick off my summer reading list!

It was my first Morgan Matson book and it did not disappoint me at all. The plot was a bit slow at first and a little throughout the book, but overall, it has the perfect combination of friendship, adventure, and summer romance.

Morgan Matson has made a loyal reader out of me and I can't wait to pick her other books throughout this summer break. I am not a huge contemporary reader at all but this book exceeded all my expectations. View all 11 comments. May 21, Jillian rated it it was amazing. View all 7 comments. Dec 04, sreeja hiatus rated it really liked it Shelves: This book was just made of sunshine and butterflies and unicorns. Granted, she is her best friend, but towards the beginning I felt like Emily was the only one who was putting in any effort into their friendship at all, and it made me feel super bad for her.

Since You've Been Gone

So well, one day Sloane decides to leave without anything but a list for her friend to complete. That made for an interesting plot, but it also made Sloane look incredibly shallow and selfish. Especially since, Emily considered her to be her best friend and he world was pretty much falling apart in the beginning. Also the fact that she gave her then boyfriend, Sam more importance than her friend was a huge turn off for me personally.

Granted, she does end up redeeming herself in the end she was not one of my favourites. She was literally the archetype of the girl next door, who was shy when talking to guys and going to parties.

Who also happened to be nervous while making conversation with people. Her character managed to developed a lot and managed to become a whole new person by the end of the book. I felt like her transformation was really genuine and it was great to follow her as she stepped out of her comfort zones.

Also it was great to see her come out of her shell and not be dependent on her best friend and instead become a person that could make her own decisions and choices and relations. I felt soooo proud of her by the end of the book for finally confronting her fears and becoming a better person. Frank Porter; the overachiever witty, charismatic, a super good leader and friend Frank as a friend and a character was such an honest and sweet guy.

Since the first time that we are introduced to him I found his character to be so authentic and caring. The fact that he played a huge role in Emily finishing her list just makes me so happy. Honourable mentions also goes to Collins for being such an adorable comic relief, with his own interesting story arc.

Overall you need to read this book to see how amazing it really is, because despite its flaws it honestly is such a great and heartwarming read. PS there are playlists in this book and its so cute Aug 12, Ashley Nuckles rated it it was amazing. View 1 comment. Jul 24, Farah added it. That was basically my reaction when I found out there was going to be a new book by Morgan Matson. I've got to mention that she is one of the most underrated authors ever, which is not fair because her books are amazing!
