This is the story of how my best friend disappeared. How nobody noticed she was gone except me. And how nobody cared until they found her . . . one year later.
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?
This is one of those books that should be included in high school’s English classes across countries. It was such a powerful and important read and it actually made me tear up a bit! I couldn’t fathom how such a thing could happen without anyone noticing and now I’m scared because it can happen. A complete eye opening read everyone should pick up.
I really loved the layout of the book. It was separated into “Before”, “After”, “One Year Before”, and “Two Years After” sections. This kept the story unfold cleverly and really captured the characters emotion from one time period to the next. Brilliantly written!
