Review by Jennifer Roberts-Hall
Purchase: Miss Me Not
They had a pact.
Leave the world behind much as they had lived it.
No one would miss them. No harm, no foul.
Their personal demons would be left behind once and for all.
It was the only thing they could count on.
It was all she had.
Madison Hanson has spent the last four years being a "shadow." Her parents ignore her. The students at her school stopped talking to her years ago, and the majority of her teachers forget she's even there. In her desperate yearning to leave her invisible life behind, Madison makes a pact with her only friend, James Garrison, to end their lives as inconspicuously as they live them. No fuss, no muss. No one would miss her and she would miss no one. Their plan is set, and it's all she can count on. That is, until fellow student, Mitch Peterson, beats them to the punch. Everything Madison believed in is shaken to the core when she watches the aftermath of Mitch's death unfold. By taking his own life, Mitch unwittingly saves hers. What a selfish prick.
She is now left with the daunting task of living. Trying to bury her demons once and for all, and finally trusting someone with her fragile existence.
Living is hell.
Death would have been so much easier.
I just finished reading Miss Me Not and I am blown away.
I started to read the book knowing that it dealt with some heavy subject matter, but for some reason I expected it to be a light and easy read.
I was so wrong.
The book is a fast read, yes, but it is far from light. It won’t leave you feeling depressed for days on end.
But It WILL make you think.
It WILL make you cry.
And it WILL give you hope.
I really loved this book. The message is so important. I could write a review about the characters, about the story, about the amazing Tiffany King, but I won’t. I’m just going to say this:
The bullies...the gossips...they ARE NOT worth it.
Someone cares. Someone notices. Someone thinks you are special.
Please don’t give up.
