About this item

Description



About the Book



Quiet Emily's sociable and daring best friend, Sloane, has disappeared leaving nothing but a random list of bizarre tasks for her to complete, but with unexpected help from popular classmate Frank Porter, Emily gives them a try.



Book Synopsis



Emily is about to take some risks and have the most unexpected summer ever. Hellogiggles.com says, "Basically I couldn't be more in love with this book," from the bestselling author of Second Chance Summer and Amy and Roger's Epic Detour.

Before 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. 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...

--Includes sixteen pages of bonus content!--
