This can’t be good! Suddenly Suze’s mom wants back into her life, and her teacher wants her to “try harder”?!As if middle school wasn’t hard enough, Suze Tamaki's life gets turned upside down when her mother reappears after a ten-year absence. Once Suze gets over her shock, she thinks it might be cool to get to know her mom. But her older sister Tracie is determined not to let her back into their lives. At school things aren’t much better. One of her teachers decides the way to cure Suze’s lack of motivation is to move her into Honors English – a development Suze finds both inspiring and distressing. When she's paired with straight-A student Amanda on an English assignment, she finds herself caring about people’s expectations like she’s never done before.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Back To School Middle Grade Novel A Month of Mondays by Joelle Anthony and published by Second Story Press is an incredible middle grade novel. Perfect for your tween and teen filled with all of the conflict and drama that our young adults face while navigating middle school. The story centres on Suze, a grade seven student with an older sister, who is being raised by a single father. Suze isn't your typical student and often finds herself in trouble. She's rebellious but so smart she doesn't know it. When she is thrust into an Honours English class at the same time her estranged mother all of a sudden pops back into her life, Suze's world is turned on its head. Anthony has given us a very real character in Suze. Suze is far from perfect, doesn't realize her potential, and is fierce in her friendships and her love for her family. You just can't help but root for her. A fun and layered read that's perfect for your back to school reading list. Set in Victoria, BC, Anthony was not afraid to write a story set in a Canadian city with universal appeal. Great for tweens, teens, young adults, and the young at heart.

Editorial Reviews

Suze Tamaki's life gets turned upside down when her mother suddenly reappears after a ten-year absence. Once Suze gets over her initial cynicism, she thinks it might be cool to get to know her mom. But her older sister Tracie – who has been as much mother as sister at times – is determined to make Suze’s life a misery for even considering it. At school things aren’t much better, as one of her teachers decides the way to cure her apathy about class is to move her into Honors English – a development Suze finds both inspiring and distressing. When she's paired with straight-A student Amanda on an English assignment, she finds herself caring about people’s expectations like she’s never done before.As real as it is heartfelt. When 13-year-old Suze hears her mother's voice for the first time in ten years, she's torn between an oath she made to her sister and overwhelming curiosity. A Month of Mondays is a tender story of a girl's desire to heal her family. - Suzanne Selfors, author of the Ever After High School stories
