Looking for a fun, entertaining book as a segue into spring and summer? Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson tells the story of the incredible journey of a girl named Emily, on a mission to piece together her life.

Her best friend left without a trace – except for a single note, a list actually, with thirteen items. Emily is determined to find her best friend, yet she has no one to help her. With her parents too preoccupied and no friends left, Emily is determined to crack the mystery surrounding the cryptic letter.

Along the way she meets new friends and has the summer of a lifetime. Yet, this is no stereotypical happily ever after kind of book. The ending is bittersweet, but it in no way measures up to the rest of the book. If you like authors like Sarah Dessen, then this book is for you.
