A story about friendship and adventure

Emily's best friend, Sloane, has mysteriously left and is not answering calls, texts, or e-mails. A few days after Sloane leaves, a to-do list appears in the mail. Emily would never think of doing some of the things on the list, but something tells Emily that it will bring Sloane back or take her to where she is. This starts the most adventurous summer of Emily's life.


"Surround yourself with the dreamers and the doers, the believers and the thinkers, but most of all, surround yourself with those who see the greatness within you, even when you don't see it in yourself." ~Edmunds Lee
