Miss Me Not-Tiffany King
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.
REVIEW 5 STARS
Ever read a story that pulls at your heart?Miss Me Not by Tiffany King is one of those stories.Miss Me Not is the story of Madison and her death pact with her friend James...only someone beats them to the punch and everything that Madison believed she was going to do is suddenly changed.
Im not going to lie.Im a huge fan of Tiffany Kings so I've been anxiously awaiting this book.When I finally got Miss Me Not onto my Kindle I was doing a Happy Dance(please envision Carlton from Fresh Prince of Bel Air).Miss Me Not is the story of Forgiving yourself,Loving yourself...Lets face it..its not always easy.Mistakes are made and those mistakes can mold you,However forgiving yourself is sometimes harder then anything.Madison's mother was a real piece of work.Tiffany King brought the characters to life so very well..I loved Madison's snarkieness,Deans unwillingness to take Madisons snarkiness and leave.Deans family was amazing.
Suicide is a hard topic to write about.Tiffany was able to write an excellent book dealing with it and surviving it when surviving is harder sometimes then living.Tiffany,I absolutely adored Miss Me Not and as always look forward to your next work.You make the hard to write subjects flow so effortlessly that it is simply a pleasure to read your books.Keep up the great work.Also Please If you are depressed or are having suicidal thoughts..talk to someone or call 1-800-784-2433 http://www.suicidehotlines.com/ .
