"A shadow like me. A shadow like James. The school didn't lose a student, they lost a nobody."

Miss Me Not is one of the most emotionally provoking books I have ever read. The kind of book that brought me to my knees. The kind of book that I knew what was going to happen from the start, but was never really prepared when it did. Miss Me Not is the kind of book that leaves footprints on the soul- it's a book I'll never forget.

This is the first time I

”Would I really be missed? Would Dean miss me? I looked down at the flower that was still clutched in my hand and began plucking off petals. “Miss me, miss me not.”


Madison Hanson is a high school student with a sad past and sadder present. She has gotten the role of being a shadow down pat. Madison and her best friend, James, make a suicide pact. Death seemed to be closure on their heartbreaking day to day lives.

When the news of Mitch Johnson suicide is announced at school, she is angry that

"For four years I had done nothing but contemplate snuffing out my existence. No more judgments, no more glares and most of all, no more gossip surrounding things I had done. All of that was swiped away. In the end, they would still win. They always won."

Miss Me Not is the story of Madison, a high school senior who has done nothing but dream for the last four years about the day that she would end her own life. Her and her only friend, James make a pact that they will do this together. All is

Wow, I was expecting this book to be good, but it really exceeded my expectations! It was better than good! I loved it. Its one of those books that will stay with you. Very emotional read.

The plain and simple fact was everyone sinned. Either they were good at hiding their sins, or they weren't. I fell in the latter category. My sins had been featured front and center, on display for everyone to judge.

I NEED A HUG! I can't even describe how much I loved this book but I will try! When I first started reading it I was nervous about the subject matter, but as I got into the story I found myself getting absorbed into it so deeply I was halfway through before I realized it!

So you got this girl, Madison, who doesn't like to be touched and has a bitch for a mom. She doesn't want to continue living in her world of exile. She always felt invisible to her parents so she acted out to try and get attent

So one of the things that I absolutely LOVE about Tiffany King is her ability to write a book about a controversial issue and make you feel characters are feeling. Suicide is something I take very seriously and I hate when people bash it or the people we have lost. So I applaud Tiffany for taking on such a strong topic and doing so in an amazing job. Most of you are wondering why I can applaud her and say that what she has written is the truth. This is why; up until I was 18 I struggled with lif ...more

Tiffany King is one of my favorite authors out there. Her book Forever Changed was the first book to make me cry and is one of, if not my favorite book of 2012.

Miss Me Not is a book that will touch a lot of people's lives. I myself having gone through some of the obstacles that Madison had to go through related to this story more than I could have imagined. MMN was a fantastic read and is so beautifully written that I cried more than once, if not all the

I tend to steer clear of books about suicide. It's just one of those topics that is difficult for me to read about. However, when I was asked to review this one, I accepted. I suppose it's because I knew that despite the difficult subject matter, that Tiffany King would find a way to bring happiness into the story. And she did.

I'm going to start by saying that I've read most of King's books, but Madison and Dean have touched me the most. I really felt like I got to see a clear picture of who Ma

Do you remember the first book that changed your life? Do you remember the first time you read a book and I felt every emotion that the characters did? For me that book was Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret by Judy Blume. Go ahead and laugh, people do, but it was the book that turned me into a Book Nerd. Then there was Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, when I got older. Now, I read a lot of books and I love a lot of them. However, there are just a few that live up to the standards of those ...more

I didn't know if I wanted to read this book. It hits a bit too close to home, for me anyway. I read some reviews before it was published and I ummed and ahh'ed right up until the second I clicked 'buy this book'.

I'm glad I clicked it.

A lot of people have described Miss Me Not as 'dark'. No, it's not. It's simply brutally honest. And I love that.

I've been in Madison's position. I suffered with depression both before and after I had my daughter and I still have my days - but several times I have b

Now I've read all of Tiffany's books so it is with utmost certainty I can say this my favorite book by her so far! Now, if you're familiar with her books just a heads up this one deals with a darker touchier subject, but as ALWAYS Tiffany handles it beautifully. Miss Me Not is going to be one of those books that sticks with you LONG after you're done reading and for some, it may hit close to home or it may cause you to take a step back and think...

I haven’t read a book where I've wanted to jump in and hug/save/befriend a character this much since Katniss in The Hunger Games. But I guess that is just the Dean in me, just like him I want to help people and make it all better. I loved Mads from the git go. Her "emo" guarded persona draws you in and her uncanny wit keeps you locked in for the entire ride. Whore cat, anyone? Love that girl!

I know what you're probably thinking. "A suicide book? I don't like to read about suicide." Well, much like funerals, nobody actually likes reading about suicide, but it is important nonetheless. And though the story is initially about two teens who have plans to go out together, Miss Me Not isn't about suicide in the way you may think.

Miss Me Not is actually about living. About Madison's decision not to end her life, and with the help of a kind, generous boy, she decides not only to not die, bu

Despite not really loving the one book by Tiffany King I read, this sounded interesting and I really wanted to give her another chance and read it.

If you've ever thought about suicide (and seriously, who hasn't?), you should read this. I won't say that there weren't things I disliked about it, but Tiffany King does deal with this sensitive subject with respect and it's not just empty words.

Honestly, I didn't like Madison so much, but this is mainly becau

OMG....I was honored to receive this book as an ARC from the author Tiffany King.

I have to start by saying Tiffany King has totally outdone herself with this book. I love all of her books but I have to say that this is my absolute favorite so far. This book evoked some many different emotions from me that I felt like I was right there living life with Madison.

I don't want to say to much because I don't want to spoil anything for anybody. What I do have to say is the relationship between Madison

To see my full review:

It is no secret that Tiffany King is one of my all-time favorite authors. I absolutely adore her work, and every single novel she’s written has been a 5 star in my book, from her lighthearted paranormal Saving Angels series to her more realistic, darker YA titles, Wishing For Someday Soon, Forever Changed, and Unlikely Allies. King has repeatedly blown me away, and her realistic novel, Miss Me Not is no different.

Tiffany King has yet again wowed me with her writing. I’ve read all of her books since Wishing For Someday Soon was published earlier this year, and I’ve never been disappointed.

In her newest novel, Miss Me Not, King has stepped outside of her comfort zone to write a story that packs a punch for anyone who reads it. It’s edgy. It’s hard-hitting. It’s going to make any reader stop in their tracks and rethink various aspects of life. It might even make

Miss Me Not by Tiffany King is an emotional journey with the tough topic of suicide. Suicide is a really tough subject for me. I’ve lost someone very dear to me because of suicide as well as a friend from high school who I thought at it all but in the end after high school had ended, he must have thought he didn’t. I went into this book knowing full well that suicide was talked about but decided I needed to read it, for myself and to help underst

Ok so I read every single book by Tiffany King and when Miss Me Not came out I didn’t even bother to read the synopsis. I just purchased it without hesitation based on my past experience with her books. If asked what my favorite book was by TK I would’ve said Forever Changed. That was a few days ago. Today I have to tell you that my favorite, my #1 book, is Miss Me Not.

Ms. Tiffany King is a gifted writer! This was the first book that I read of hers and it will NOT be my last. Such an emotionally powerful topic and handled with the utmost elegance. Thoughts of suicide, held hostage by depression and the feeling of loneliness is the most terrible situation any human being can be in or go through. This is a MUST read and teaches you to be kind to others and step back and understand that everyone is fighting some kind of battle that we are not aware of . . . Smile ...more

Thoroughly enjoyable.

Like Tiffany King's best books (I was originally introduced to her through Wishing for Someday Soon), this one hits on some heavy themes: suicide, depression, statutory rape. She handles it in a sensitive and deft fashion, and MC Madison is intensely relatable. Well worth reading! While the subject matter is intense, it isn't in any way graphic, and is suitable for teen audiences (I wouldn't have any problem with my daughter reading this).
I really liked this one. I loved the hero and his family.
I have had this book in my Kindle library since it first came out years ago. I can't believe I waited so long to read it.

I would like a sequel of Dean and Madison to see what and how they are doing now. I am not sure if Tiffany King considered writing one.
