Do you hate Mondays? Sometimes I do! When I saw the cover of this book, I thought it was about an upcoming day of the week. I was way wrong! Monday isn’t a day, she’s a person!
Claudia and her best friend Monday do everything together --- inside joke, homework help, hair braiding and just hanging out. Monday almost never invites Claudia over to her house, but that’s fine. Claudia’s more than happy to have her stay at Claudia’s house, and she doesn’t like Monday’s mother very much, anyway.
Every summer, Claudia gets sent to visit her grandmother in Georgia. When she gets back to her hometown of Washington D.C. the first thing she wants is to see Monday. They had promised to write, and Claudia did, but she never heard back from Monday. When she gets home, she immediately calls Monday and learns that the phone has been disconnected. No one has seen Monday around.
Claudia doesn’t want to wait until eighth grade begins to find her best friend. She doesn’t want to face a new school year by herself. Without Monday, she doesn’t know where she fits in. She isn’t even quite sure who she is.

Please, please read this book. This perspective is one every teenager or adult needs to experience. This book is a thriller, centered around the loss of a dyslexic teen named Claudia. When her friend doesn't show up to school, Claudia does everything to try and find out where her best friend is. The story is told with jumps in time, with Claudia recalling the "before" and "the after".
This book feels like a punch in the gut, and I wouldn't change it for anything. Many people say things are "eye opening" but this book truly made me think "Holy crap. I never thought about how other people lived like this."
I normally read realistic fiction, adventure, and mystery, but no matter what you like to read, READ THIS BOOK.

This was a well written, exciting novel. However, I found that it was a little hard to understand when everything was happening. It kept jumping in between different times and there was nothing to help you place it on a grander timeline. When I got to the plot twist it changed things quite dramatically and it made me want to read the whole thing over again to understand it better. Overall, I think it was a pretty good book.

Another weird twist in the last few chapters, not unlike the author's other novel, but this time there is more explanation around the twist and the conclusion felt more satisfying than it did in Allegedly. The shifting timelines made for a disjointed read - I had a hard time tracking when things were taking place. This was particularly evident after The Twist occurred. I feel like this book might be better the second time through.

This was an exciting, dark read. The plot of Monday's Not Coming is relatively simple--Claudia's friend, Monday, is missing, and she seems to be the only person who's noticed (or at least, who's cared). Every day without Monday is heavier, and Claudia's desperation and risk-taking escalate as the school year drags on. Without being preachy or didactic, Jackson weaves cyberbullying, learning disabilities, gentrification, infertility, income inequality and so many more social concerns naturally into her novel.
