Wow, I haven’t posted in forever and for that I’m sorry. Is not that I’m not reading, is mostly about me being lazy and not finding time to write. I’m not promising any regular posting schedule because I go to school full time and work full time as well, so I’ll see how it goes.

But onto the review. I didn’t like this book. The concept of it, the topic, the writing style, and overall writing scheme didn’t seem to capture my attention. Claudia, who is our main character, loses a friend after spending some time apart one summer vacation. When she comes back, she realizes that Monday’s missing and starts questioning everyone and everything. The book is confusing to me because it jumps between separate times. The author wrote this book in the format of the “present” and then in between months. If Jackson’s purpose was to challenge my brain, she most certainly did, however, it wasn’t on a good way.
I lost interest in this book from the beginning, the author didn’t manage to hold my attention, and whenever I put the book down it would be very hard for me to pick it back up. Now, you may be asking yourself, why did you finish it? (If you been following me for while you know that I’m not afraid to DNF) Well, that’s because we choose it for our book club pick of the month and it was kind of mandatory to finish it, especially if you are the moderator of the discussion group. Funny thing is, no one in the club like the book either and there were four of us.
Anyways, the story can be very confusing and its hard to follow the chronological order in which the story is written. I can’t explain much really because if I do I’d be giving the story away, and well, you kinda need to read the book to know what I’m talking about but it is a hard read.
I would recommend this book to 12 year olds and older. If you like suspense and mystery, then this is the book for you (ish).
