Stuffed Animal Saturday [13]

Stuffed Animal Saturday is a meme that we post here at We Live and Breathe Books to showcase the book we're currently reading with one of our favorite stuffed animals and discuss our stuffed animal's opinion (well, it's really our opinion, but that's besides the point). We hope you enjoy our quirky feature as much as we enjoy writing it!

Hey guys! You might think this is Minnie Mouse, but it's actually just Mickey with a penchant for cross-dressing. Minnie's on vacation. While she's been gone, we've started a novel Since You've Been Gone. A bit fitting, I think.

So Far: So far this book has been freaking awesome. Mickey most loves the fact that, although he might not get along with the main character, her voice is captured so incredibly well, infused with as many quirks and mannerisms as a real person's. Mickey wonders where Matson got her imagination, and where he can get him some (okay that last part was me). We've only got a few pages in so far, but we love it! Stay tuned for the review on monday!

A Sneak Peek: 

Since I haven't got very far I'll post the blurb:

The Pre-Sloane Emily didn't go to parties, she barely talked to guys, she didn't do anything crazy. Enter Sloane, social tornado and the best kind of best friend—the one 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. On it, thirteen Sloane-selected-definitely-bizarre-tasks that Emily would never try... unless they could lead back to her best friend. Apple Picking at Night? Ok, easy enough.Dance until Dawn? Sure. Why not? Kiss a Stranger? Wait... what?

Getting through Sloane’s list would mean a lot of firsts. But Emily has this whole unexpected summer ahead of her, and the help of Frank Porter (totally unexpected) to check things off. Who knows what she’ll find?

Go Skinny Dipping? Um...
