Principali recensioni dei clienti
Leggendo la trama ero incuriosita dalla storia della lista, come penso chiunque, ma poi appare il rapporto di amicizia tra Emily e Sloane - la ragazza timida, migliore amica della più popolare e socievole ragazza della scuola -, che non sarà il solito rapporto a cui ci abituano i film!
Grazie alla lista Emily crescerà, uscirà dal suo guscio, riuscirà finalmente a far sentire la sua voce.

For the last two years, Em and Sloane have been the best of friends. So when Em returns home after a family trip to discover that Sloane and her family have completely disappeared, she’s beyond shocked. Even more so when a list comes in the mail in Sloane’s handwriting, detailing what Em is supposed to do for the summer. Left without any other options, Em follows the instructions and discovers that she may be just as strong on her own as she is with her friend. Em gets a job, begins new friendships, hangs out with her brother and more in the summer she never expected to have.
A great story about self discovery and how we can often left our friends define who we are instead of defining ourselves. Em’s journey was fascinating, even if it’s from the perspective of a lost sixteen year old girl. Watching Em grow as a character is the best part about this book, and how she finds her inner strength to explore her past decisions and makes better future ones based on it. All of the side characters were very well developed and never felt one dimensional; they read like people the reader would meet in real life instead of a flat character in a book.
One criticism to be noted on this work is the length. It was about 450 pages which can be daunting. Also when reading, there seemed to be a lot of details on places/people/things that weren’t extremely important to the book. For tweens who are reluctant readers this would not be ideal. For voracious teen readers it shouldn’t be a problem. This book may be for the older tweens, but the content was fairly clean. Not too many curse words, and no more than a few kisses in the romance department
Sloane and Emily had the type of all-encompassing friendship where they are constantly together and if they’re not together then they are thinking about being together, so being apart is all that consumes Emily’s thoughts until she really starts tackling her list. In Sloane’s absence Emily is forced to make new friends and realize that she’s more than just Sloane’s shadow, and that she has merits on her own. In addition to Emily’s adventures, this book features flashbacks to certain points in Emily and Sloane’s friendship, and there’s also the ongoing mystery of what happened to Sloane. I was prepared to be really irritated when we finally find Sloane again (who ditches their best friend with no warning???), but the conclusion to the story was surprisingly bittersweet.
There’s nothing ground breaking about this novel, but it was well written (SAT vocabulary alert!), and all of the characters were fleshed out quite wonderfully. In particular, I got a laugh every time Emily’s playwright parents were mentioned as well as her little brother Beckett who enjoyed nothing more than climbing the walls (literally). For older readers, this is a fun book that will constantly have you thinking back to your own teenage years!
This book is a neat little package wrapped up in a bow. You slowly pull it apart and cannot wait to see what is inside, but the wrapping is so pretty you want to do it delicately. I love this whole book. I didn’t want to go to sleep, I wanted to read. I wanted to hide away with this book and keep it a secret from the world.
The book was so well-paced, all the sudden I looked down and an hour had past and I was over halfway done with the book. I was sucked into the world-building and Emily’s life. I wanted to be part of the list and wished that my friends and I would have done something like that with each other. I especially love the lists Sloane would write for Emily when she was going on vacation.
I know I say I can relate with so many characters, but Emily and I were so on the same page. I had a friend like Sloane and I was her shadow. She was a bright bulb and people really just new me as her friend. I was along for the ride, not enjoying the ride. Once my parents divorced and I had to start at a new school, I had to force myself out of my comfort zone like Emily did.
Sloane was so neat, I can’t help but wish we got more of her in this story. I think Morgan Matson should write this story, but from Sloane’s POV.
I have a new book boyfriend! I have the hugest book crush on Frank. Oh boy, I think he is at the top of my list now!
The only thing would be wanting more Sloane, as I have already mentioned.
“I knew the answer to that immediately. It was like swimming under the stars, like sleeping outside, like climbing a tree in the dark, and seeing the view. It was scary and safe and peaceful and exciting all at the same time. It was the way I felt when I was with him. Like a well-ordered universe.”
