Before Sloane, Emily didn't go to parties, she barely talked to guys, and she didn't do anything crazy. Enter Sloane, social tornado and the best kind of best friend - someone who yanks you out of your shell. But right before what should have been an epic summer, Sloane just...disappears. No note. No calls. No texts. No Sloane. There's just a random to-do list with 13 bizarre tasks that Emily would never try. But what if they can lead her to Sloane? "Go Skinny Dipping?" Um...

it was so hard to want to listen to this book and stay engaged. the chapters are 30 minutes to over an hour long and some chapters have time jumps in the middle of them. i found that the story took so long to progress and the actual mystery of what happened and where is Sloan to be the most boring part of the entire book. this story was way overhyped.

Now that Dimple Shah has graduated, she's ready for a break from her family - especially from Mamma's inexplicable obsession with her finding the Ideal Indian Husband. Ugh. But Dimple knows that her mother must respect that she isn't interested in doing that right now - otherwise she wouldn't have paid for her to attend a summer program for aspiring web developers, right?

This book was overall enjoyable, but the plot only focused on Dimple and Rishi's relationship for the entire book. This made it extremely difficult to follow anything that was going on in other characters' lives. I personally did not care for Dimple as a character because she just does not get that Rishi is traditional. I really thought it was stupid that she breaks up with him (knowing that she might eventually have to marry him) because she wasn't looking for a relationship while at this competition. I also didn't like that Celia felt guilty for sleeping with Rishi's brother and needed to tell Dimple. This was too random and did not do anything for the plot. Overall, it was worth a read, but not worth rereading.

The audio was great, but if I listened to it at regular speed it seemed like they were talking too slow.
