    Monday's Not Coming Tiffany D. Jackson Rating: 4/5 Note: Special thanks to Harper Collins for providing an ARC for review. Much like Allegedly, readers have to dive blindly into this book and allow Ms. Jackson to lead you on a twisting and thrilling journey. Anytime students ask...

    Yes, the back and forth timeline is often hard to follow and I do think that this book should have ended about forty pages earlier. However, I connected SO HARD with this story. I have seen these kids - kids who move through life giving off a million little "bread crumbs" and yet c...

    Monday's Not Coming is a visceral, gut wrenching novel about a topic that's all to real. ...

    This is the story of how my best friend disappeared. How nobody noticed she was gone except me. And how nobody cared until they found her . . . one year later. This was one of my most anticipated reads of 2018. Even though I disliked the ending of Jackson's Allegedly, it was stil...

    Monday? Not Coming was utterly devastating, gripping, dark, intense and it messed with my mind on multiple levels. The various relationships and characters in this were superbly written, with voices brilliantly human and real. This had my heart beating 1000x a minute and breaking in ...

    How can a teenage girl just vanish without anyone noticing that she?s gone? Allegedly scrambled my brain with a spork. Monday's Not Coming went for my heart instead. I haven't had a case of the post-book sads this bad since I finished Living Dead Girl. The book hangover is g...

    I know what you?re thinking. How can a whole person, a kid, disappear and no one say a word? Like, if the sun just up and left one day, you?d think someone would sound an alarm, right? But Ma used to say, not everyone circles the same sun. I never knew what she meant by that until...

    I really liked this. While it does contain mystery and thriller elements; this felt more like an exploration of community relationships, classism and respectability politics. As well as the major issues that this book draws attention to, some of which are spoilers but the obvious one i...

    While I didn't enjoy this as much as Jackson's debut, I'm glad I stuck with it. Another overlook on my part; I wasn't aware that the narrator is actually in middle school. Claudia's voice felt very young & naļve (now I understand why) & was debating whether or not to continue....
