AIIIIGHT. So this book was pretty guuuud. I didn't love it as much as I thought I would going into it, but still, it ended up being a fun and entertaining read, so that's good enough for me! The concept of the to-do-list was adorable and, in my opinion, perfectly executed. The only real downside of the book, which is the reason why I didn't fall in love with it, was that there was a lack of character development and really, for me, it fell just a bit flat on the emotional front.
BUT YYAAAAAA, the list Sloane leaves for Emily and how Emily goes about completing that list is super fun, and I think it helped keep a good pace throughout the book. I couldn't wait to see how she would handle the different tasks as they got more and more strange, so that really made it an entertaining and quick read. But the character development was seriously lacking for me. I just wasn't involved or attached to any of the characters the way I would have liked to have been, so although it was entertaining, there was no deep connection to the story. I was a bit bummed by that because I like getting really immersed into a story and the characters, but this was still really cute to read and I still liked the characters enough, so I still enjoyed the book, ya know? BUT K can I just point out one thing? LOL the name Frank. Of all the cool names the author could have picked (and did pick, cause Sloane is pretty unique) she picked FRANK? There's nothing wrong with that name, but every time it came up I couldn't help but giggle because I don't know, I feel like Frank is a name for an older man, not one for a teenage boy. LOL not that the name matters at all, just thought it was funny.
So like I said before, super fun, super cute, and definitely a great YA contemporary that shouldn't be missed. Despite my few problems with it, I did enjoy it overall. While it wasn't anything spectacular, it was light, easy to get though, and entertaining enough. Lacked a bit in the emotional aspect, but who needs feelings, right?
