From the critically acclaimed author of Allegedly, Tiffany D. Jackson, comes a gripping new novel perfect for fans of E. Lockhart and Gillian Flynn about the mystery of one teenage girl’s disappearance and the traumatic effects of the truth.

Monday Charles is missing, and only Claudia seems to notice. 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. Monday wouldn’t just leave her to endure tests and bullies alone. Not after last year’s rumors and not with her grades on the line. Now Claudia needs her best—and only—friend more than ever. But Monday’s mother refuses to give Claudia a straight answer, and Monday’s sister April is even less help.

As Claudia digs deeper into her friend’s disappearance, she discovers that no one seems to remember the last time they saw Monday. How can a teenage girl just vanish without anyone noticing that she’s gone?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow wow wow This books was so real. It was true and painful, it bled the realities of childhood abuse and the effects that trauma can have on the young mind. I couldn’t put it down. This book is important, it’s a story that needs acknowledgement. I would 1000% reccomend this book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eye-opening With the constant time lapses, the book may seem a little confusing. When the twist comes in, it'll make you want to go back to the beginning so you can see that everything you needed to know was right in front of you the whole time. This book covered the topics of child abuse, friendship, a failed system, missing children and mental illness in an excellent yet punch-in-the-gut manner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just... Wow. Wow. I just. Wow. I don’t have the words to talk about this right now. Painful, heartbreaking, devastating. This book will make you sob, and rage. This book will break your heart over and over again. A dark and awful story about child abuse, missing Black girls, and the ways our systems keep failing the most vulnerable, this is an important - but incredibly tough read. #IndigoEmployee

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good, what a twist This book was very good. I honestly, was not expecting very much but at about half way through the book you get an unexpected twist where EVERYTHING makes sense. I really did enjoy this book and was not wanting it to end.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow. Unexpectedly powerful. Read a lot about this book, but no real specifics. I had the opportunity to read a copy, and wow. I was in a room with about 20 other people, and tears ran down my face. What a powerful read about trauma. Highly recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved it! A quick read that had me enthralled from the beginning. Although the outcome was predictable based of the jacket, the twist shocked me and really shook up the book and made everything click. Great read.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from wow This book was a lot heavier than originally anticipated. I was not really expecting it to be such a serious topic but I ended up really invested in the story and liked that it was something that isn't often written about in teen novels.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 4/5 It was a fast read on such a necessary topic; the welfare of children during abuse. Claudia's story nearly broke my heart. She lost herself searching for her friend when everyone around her told her to give up. She didnt. Although, it didnt need to be 400+pages. I recommend this book, a gem!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 4.5 4.5 stars While reading this book I thought to myself this is not as good as The Hate U Give. I’m enjoying it but I know what’s going to happen at the end, it’s pretty obvious when you read the back. And I was very confused by the chapter headings “The Before, The After, Before The Before” and the different months. I didn’t get it. But then there was a twist.... and although I sensed something else was going on I thought maybe I was reading into it to much. Then BAM it all came full circle and it all made sense! At the same time it made the whole book so interesting, my mind was racing as I tried to recall certain events that happened in the book, and how I felt about them. But now that I understand everything, I felt different. It was mind boggling. It is one of those books that you want to read again now that you know everything. Because reading it knowing all the information is a whole different experience than reading it with no information. I really enjoyed it and I would love to see this as a movie. I think in The right hands it could translate beautifully onto the big screen!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from loved this! this is a sad tale of children that fall through the social services cracks, but an important read nonetheless. weird timeline headings - after, before, two years before the before, but that layout makes sense towards the end of the book.
