"I am soooo in love with this book, I read when I was in high school and every minute of the day I would read the book so I can get closer to the end of book.For those who read the book you know how it ends and for those who didn't you will be happy in the beginning sad in the middle and happy at the ends. So please check out this book if you haven't already!"
"this book was a lot of self discovery not only in the characters but in myself as well. "
"Emily’s best friend goes missing, but she leaves one thing. A list full of things Emily should complete. Kiss a stranger, go skinny dipping… Emily’s always the shy one while Sloane’s the confident one, how is Emily supposed to do all of this without her? This is a fun summer read that I’ve enjoyed so much! I’ve cried and laughed and the romance is honestly pretty amazing. Just be warned, its a slow book, 400+ pages "
