Monday's Not Coming | Tiffany D. Jackson
post image

Claudia and Monday have always been inseparable—more sisters than friends. So when Monday doesn‘t turn up for the first day of school, Claudia‘s worried.

When she doesn‘t show for the second day, or second week, Claudia knows that something is wrong.…

😭😭 completely wrecked

Claudia and Monday are inseparable, when school starts Monday isn‘t there, but no one believes Claudia when she tries to tell them Monday is missing.

Really nailed the middle school “mean girl” culture. &the vantage point of a middle school girl that no adults take seriously, of thinking you know everything then realizing all that‘s not shared. The tragedy of what can happen behind closed doors.

Literally heartbreaking.

BookDragonNotWorm This one made me ugly cry. 😭 1mo

Claudia & Monday have always been best friends. When the new school year starts and Monday isn‘t there, Claudia worries something happened to her. As she tries to convince the adults in her life that Monday is missing, no one takes her seriously.

I couldn‘t put this one down. It goes back and forth between two different timelines and was a page turner. I love when I have no idea how a story will end, it keeps me invested.

This book is devastating to read. I really liked the premise but wasn‘t a big fan of the jumping of timelines and how some of these friends trauma seems to just be glossed over. Still definitely worth a read.
Claudia is the only person who notices that her best friend Monday is missing and no one even attempts to look for her…until her body is found a year later.

This story and it‘s haunting truth will stay with you, and the gut-punching realization that the horrors described in this book are a reality for thousands of children, maybe even strangers we have crossed paths with….

I feel like an emotional train wreck after this one! Wow. I wanted to read this after hearing about some parent drama in a nearby county with lots to say against this book and trying to get it removed. Plus, it‘s a Coretta Scott King winner and tackles some real heavy topics. The story is about Claudia, who leaves to spend the summer at her grandmothers only to come back to find her best friend has disappeared and no one seems concerned by this.

Cortg If parents are upset that their 9th grader could choose to read this in honors English, they‘re in for a rude awakening in the upcoming years, thinking back on some of the books my kids read in high school over the past 5 years 😂 9mo
Zoe-h When I read this one, I couldn‘t keep track of the time changes, and that twist at the end didn‘t help. It was also much more grim than I was expecting (not that that‘s a bad thing). 9mo
Cortg @Zoe-h Yeah, the “before, before” the “before” and the “after” chapters plus each consecutive month was tricky, but it kept me wondering what the big event was that caused the before and the after. The twist was great and opened the whole mental health aspect of the story. So many layers and topics! I knew going in it would be grim from the nearby school drama. (edited) 9mo
megnews When it comes to censorship I always feel like if there are kids who have lived through something, other kids can read about it. Sometimes with guidance. Parents would do better for their children if they read along too and discussed instead of trying to ban. I loved this book and I love Tiffany Jackson. (edited) 9mo
Cortg @megnews Absolutely! And the book was a choice read, choose one of these 5 books to read and discuss. By high school, let the kids read. It creates empathy and understanding. (edited) 9mo

For the most part I really enjoyed this book, but I think it fell a little short of all the hype I've heard about it. I think the overall story does a fantastic job in highlighting the ways in which Black lives, especially Black women's and children's lives, are overlooked and not seen as a priority. The fact that Claudia had dyslexia added a lot to the story. The twist at the end was also pretty unexpected and original.

I imagined that an audiobook would never be able to make me cry. WRONG. This was an intense rollercoaster ride of a book about Claudia who returns from a summer away to find her best friend Monday missing. Despite her pleas, no one seems to be able to help her find Monday. A book filled with secrets revealed and a slowly unfolding tragedy. The unique timeline was a little tough to stay with on audio, but other than that, this one‘s a stunner.

I don‘t know what just happened. The book jumped between four different timelines, and I personally have a really bad habit of not reading the chapter titles, so this one was hard for me. That twist at the end made no sense either. 2⭐️

Claudia‘s best friend Monday is missing, but none of the adults in her life seem to take her concerns seriously.

This was a great YA thriller! The main character is learning to manage her dyslexia along with typical teenage struggles, and of course the loneliness of her friend being gone. I really enjoyed the author‘s description of the way Claudia was moved by and escaped into dance.

1st book by Tiffany Jackson and it won‘t be my last. This is a heartbreaking read, y‘all. I definitely recommend it, but please be prepared - you‘ll be on the verge of tears a lot. Powerful, intense, heart-shattering.

Something is just not right with this mother. If her son was doing all these things, couldn‘t she have found a a better way to handle the situation, instead of choking him to death? I agree putting hands on girls and his sisters was wrong but two wrongs don‘t make a right.

The constantly shifting timelines didn't work for me on audio... i think i would have liked it better if i had the physical book in my hands and could flip back and forth when i needed to reorient myself. I read a spoiler for the ending online, so I'm comfortable bailing.

Holy crap this book was so good, but so heartbreaking. Claudia just came back from a summer with her grandmother. She is so excited to see her best friend Monday. When she arrives for the 1st day of school, she knows something is wrong when Monday doesn‘t show up to school. What happened to Monday? Claudia needs to know what happened to her friend. I didn‘t see the twist coming towards the end of the book. I couldn‘t put this book down!

Wowza! I read the last 250 pages in a couple hours cause I could not put the book down. I was enthralled with Claudia and how much she loved Monday to never give up on finding out what happened to her. This book truly blew my mind with the twist and turns.

The writing is amazing which I expected after reading ‘Allegedly‘. This author is so talented and I‘m going to gobble up her other books.

This was a free audiobook from #audiosync. Check out their free YA audiobooks for the summer! They have a great lineup this year as always.
This starts out slow but builds until the twist comes out of nowhere. Very dark subject matter handled very well, there is a TW for child abuse.
A girl in 8th grade returns home from a summer away for the start of the new school year and can‘t wait to see her best friend, who seems to have vanished.

TerriGreen Sounds good! I need to check this service out! 2y

Sometimes I start reading a book and decide to add the audio for car drives. I did that in this case and the audio just isn‘t working for me. The narrator‘s voice just doesn‘t match the voices I had in my head, particularly the conversations between the MC and her best friend. May need to stick with reading. Great story so far though!

Hooked_on_books There‘s a series I love that has the same issue. I‘ve listened to one book from it and the main character‘s voice is all wrong! All the rest will be read by me in print, for sure. 2y
