With Morgan Matson’s ‘Since You’ve Been Gone’ just released, you might want another awesome summer read: ‘Second Chance Summer’

Heard of ‘Since You’ve Been Gone’? You really need to. Not only is it a fun, laugh-out-loud read, but it might just give you some inspiration for what you and your best mates could get up to over summer.

When Emily’s best friend Sloane disappears, the only thing she leaves behind is a totally ridiculous summer bucket list for wallflower Emily to complete – including tasks such as dancing ’til dawn, kissing strangers, and skinny dipping. Emily is in for a summer unlike any other – and she might just be able to track down her Sloane by the end of it. Really, you need to get your hands on this book ASAP.

If you want further suggestions on what to read this summer, then MP! knows just what you need: ‘Second Chance Summer’. Originally publish back in 2012, Simon and Schuster are giving this perfect sunny-day read a bit of a makeover for its re-release this May – TODAY, in fact.

When Taylor’s family get some life-changing news, they decide to head out to their old lake house and spend one last summer together. Unfortunately for Taylor, though, this means confronting the past she tried to run from, the old best friend who currently hates her, and her first boyfriend – who’s got a lot more attractive now he’s 17.

If you’re jetting off abroad, kicking back in the park, or just need some inspiration on how to have a most excellent summer, we highly suggest you pick up ‘Second Chance Summer’ or ‘Since You’ve Been Gone’.

Kick start your summer right.
