Today I am pleased to welcome the Since You've Been Gone blog tour to my blog. This is a really good read - it is one of those books that you could read many times over and enjoy it every time. I found myself laughing out loud a number of times throughout the book.
I really liked the idea of the list, it was full of those things that teenage girls would dare each other to do, some very naively. The two characters - Sloane and Emily - are BFF and I can imagine my daughter having a friend like this when she becomes older. I think girls have these strong relationships and I think that this is one of those books that I will pass on to her. I really liked Matson's writing style, it started off slowly but the story builds and grows as the books progresses.
It is a book about a girls road to self discovery and her first love - a perfect book to read over the long summer break.
As part of the tour I am pleased to be able to share with my blog readers the first chapter in the book which was released yesterday, Thursday 3 July 2014.
