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 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.
