    Extremely touching. This book strikes a beautiful balance between a sweet story of friendship and devastating story of loss and confusion. Review to come! ...

    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...

    PLEASE READ THIS BOOK! As with Allegedly, I definitely need time to process what I just read. This book has hurt my heart and I just need some time. It was so good, so important, so intense...I need more people to read this. Original: I just received this in the mail toda...

    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...

    Putting this on hold at 15% because I'm not a huge fan of the audiobook narration - I think it leans a bit young for me? So far, though, I'm intrigued, and I'll definitely be coming back to this, hopefully soon!! ...

    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 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...

    "Leave her out in the heat too long and her banana peel would start to rot. The tip of her highlighter blackens with wear. The prickling of her pineapple skin sometimes leaves her impossible to open. And dandelions are nothing but pretty weeds." Finished this book in two days,...

    I finished this last night, but it caused such a hangover that I needed some time to ~process~ This is incredible. Not only is it a gripping story that moved at a wild pace, but it is an important one that is all too real for too many people and because it is marginalized people (mi...

    I didn't mean to finish this in one day, but here we have it!I definitely recommend the audiobook of this one. Enjoyable and it definitely kept me hooked, but not a new fav. ...

    I knew Tiffany D. Jackson was something special when I inhaled her debut, Allegedly. In the same tone as Allegedly, Monday's Not Coming kept me anxiously reading and desperate to know what happened to a 15-year-old no one seemed to care about. What I loved about Monday's Not Coming is ...

    Extremely touching. This book strikes a beautiful balance between a sweet story of friendship and devastating story of loss and confusion. Review to come! ...

    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...

    PLEASE READ THIS BOOK! As with Allegedly, I definitely need time to process what I just read. This book has hurt my heart and I just need some time. It was so good, so important, so intense...I need more people to read this. Original: I just received this in the mail toda...

    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 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...

    "Leave her out in the heat too long and her banana peel would start to rot. The tip of her highlighter blackens with wear. The prickling of her pineapple skin sometimes leaves her impossible to open. And dandelions are nothing but pretty weeds." Finished this book in two days,...

    I finished this last night, but it caused such a hangover that I needed some time to ~process~ This is incredible. Not only is it a gripping story that moved at a wild pace, but it is an important one that is all too real for too many people and because it is marginalized people (mi...

    Coretta Scott King-John Steptoe Award for New Talent by the author of Allegedly The importance of the topic at the center of this book cannot be overstated. It?s a tough one. It?s painful to acknowledge that things like this happen in our society and tackling that subject a...

    PLEASE READ THIS BOOK! As with Allegedly, I definitely need time to process what I just read. This book has hurt my heart and I just need some time. It was so good, so important, so intense...I need more people to read this. Original: I just received this in the mail toda...

    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...

    Putting this on hold at 15% because I'm not a huge fan of the audiobook narration - I think it leans a bit young for me? So far, though, I'm intrigued, and I'll definitely be coming back to this, hopefully soon!! ...

    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 ...
