    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...

    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...

    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 ...

    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...

    "Who's really responsible for your well-being? Your family, the government, or your community?" Monday's Not Coming is a standalone YA/mystery novel written by Tiffany D. Jackson. Although a bit taxing to follow with its three alternating timelines and unfortunately not incredibly ...

    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....

    2.5 stars ?...It?s hard facing a mirror and seeing all you are made of and all you couldn?t absorb. But I?m open to be changed. To be in a place where I can hold all the colors I love at once, appreciate what they are and learn from them. I?m open to new beginnings.? Th...

    There goes one of my most anticipated releases of the year. I wouldn?t say it?s a disappointment, but sadly not going to be a new favorite. 3 1/2 stars This story follows Claudia, a young teen who has a best friend named Monday. When Claudia returns to school at the start of the...

    10/6/2017: COVER REVEAL!! also, Washington DC is amazing. 8/17/2017: look, her debut novel is one of my all-time favorite books. I can't even imagine how good this will be. ...

    I didn?t hate this one. Nor did I love it. I just felt, so underwhelmed. I was kind of expecting this dark mystery thriller book...but instead, I got a really dragged out mystery. I wasn?t bored but again, nothing happened!! A lot of this book was just filler and I cared about a...

    The more I think about this book the more I see it?s importance. ...

    I knew this book was going to be heartbreaking. But, it's devastating on so many levels. It's beautifully written and the characters are fantastic. The way the story unfolds makes you hold out a little bit of hope, even when you know there isn't any. Severe trigger warnings for chil...

    WTF DID I JUST READ?! TOTAL. MIND. EFF. *Edit 05/18/2018* You can find more of my reviews here at my blog: Take Me Away... Having missed her debut last year, when the reviews started rolling in, I knew that I had missed out on something really good. Because of that, I added ...

    This book has so many great aspects! The theme, the voice, the narration, the characters! But I'm hurting too much to decide on my favorite. 4.5. Claudia is looking for her friend Monday. They haven't spoken since Claudia had to spend the summer with her grandmother and now she's...

    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...

    S H O O K. This story kinda blew my mind. When Claudia returns from summer break to realize that no one has seen her best friend Monday all summer, she starts to worry. Monday and Claudia have been best friends since forever ? practically inseparable. Claudia is sure that Monday c...

    I really enjoyed this book - my only complaint, which I have seen in many reviews - was that the tenses jump so often it's hard to keep track. I honestly read without reading the chapter headings so it went smooth enough for me - toward the end though I did get more confused - when eve...

    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. ...

    I'm trying this again because my first review was deleted. This review will have spoilers because I won't be able to stress how important a specific topic is. Claudia and Monday are best friends,more like sisters. One day,out of the blue, Monday goes missing. Claudia seems to be the ...

    Thank you Edelweiss+ for an advanced Egalley of Monday's Not Coming. Unlike most, I wasn't impressed with Tiffany Jackson's debut, Allegedly. I didn't not like it, but I wasn't blown away either. That wasn't the case with Monday's Not Coming. Claudia has returned from summe...

    3.5 stars Monday's Not Coming is a dark story about a girl whose best friend goes missing. Nobody seems concerned, except Claudia. Claudia sets out to figure out what happened to Monday and will do whatever it takes to get answers. I have mixed feeling about this book. I won't say ...

    I really enjoyed this book - my only complaint, which I have seen in many reviews - was that the tenses jump so often it's hard to keep track. I honestly read without reading the chapter headings so it went smooth enough for me - toward the end though I did get more confused - when eve...

    3.5 stars Monday's Not Coming is a dark story about a girl whose best friend goes missing. Nobody seems concerned, except Claudia. Claudia sets out to figure out what happened to Monday and will do whatever it takes to get answers. I have mixed feeling about this book. I won't say ...

    This book was amazing and dark and so intense yet I loved it so much. We follow Claudia as she reaches out to people in her town to investigate why her best friend Monday has vanished. We follow Claudia's story as she stands up and raises questions and finds out what happened to her ...

    I suspect this book is going to haunt me for some time. It was heart-wrenching, shocking and incredibly sad, although not without hope. I think this book draws attention to a lot of social issues and it feels very timely. The only issue that I had was some confusion with the timeline. ...

    Monday's Not Coming is a standalone Young Adult contemporary novel with a mystery element. This is my second book by this author (I previously read Allegedly). The narrator is Claudia (she is around 14 years old). Her best friend Monday does not show up for school after summer break...

    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...

    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 enjoyed this book - my only complaint, which I have seen in many reviews - was that the tenses jump so often it's hard to keep track. I honestly read without reading the chapter headings so it went smooth enough for me - toward the end though I did get more confused - when eve...

    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...

    I'm trying this again because my first review was deleted. This review will have spoilers because I won't be able to stress how important a specific topic is. Claudia and Monday are best friends,more like sisters. One day,out of the blue, Monday goes missing. Claudia seems to be the ...

    Thank you Edelweiss+ for an advanced Egalley of Monday's Not Coming. Unlike most, I wasn't impressed with Tiffany Jackson's debut, Allegedly. I didn't not like it, but I wasn't blown away either. That wasn't the case with Monday's Not Coming. Claudia has returned from summe...

    3.5 stars Monday's Not Coming is a dark story about a girl whose best friend goes missing. Nobody seems concerned, except Claudia. Claudia sets out to figure out what happened to Monday and will do whatever it takes to get answers. I have mixed feeling about this book. I won't say ...

    This book was amazing and dark and so intense yet I loved it so much. We follow Claudia as she reaches out to people in her town to investigate why her best friend Monday has vanished. We follow Claudia's story as she stands up and raises questions and finds out what happened to her ...

    I suspect this book is going to haunt me for some time. It was heart-wrenching, shocking and incredibly sad, although not without hope. I think this book draws attention to a lot of social issues and it feels very timely. The only issue that I had was some confusion with the timeline. ...

    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...
