”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 tha

"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 i

Living is hell.
Death would have been so much easier.

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.

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

OMG!!!!! WOW!!!! Grab a box of tissues, lock yourself away from everyone & prepare for an amazingly sweet, heartbreaking, funny and all around AMAZING book! It's no secret, I worship the ground Tiffany King walks on! She is my favorite author hands down. I know I said Unlikely Allies was her best to date but WOW!!!! MMN surpasses EVERYTHING I have read from Tiffany!!! I could NOT put it down. I stayed up unable to go to bed until I finished.

I read this a while ago, but forgot all about it until I tried to DL it again today as a freebie!

I guess that kind of says a lot about how I feel about this book. Actually, it was a good book, and I enjoyed it when I read it, it just didn't stay with me.

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.

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...

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

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! Now it would be an immense oversight if I did not say that for many readers this will be a tough read, b ...more

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

*Read as an ARC copy received from the author

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

"I embraced my solitude. I loved being alone. I loved silence. I was a liar."

This is the first book I've had the pleasure of reading from Tiffany King. Miss Me Not has been on the blogs TBR list for quite some time, having seen some great reviews, I decided to jump in and go for it. I didn't really know what I was getting into. I love a deep book, but I also get very connected, so I was a little worried I was setting myself up for some he

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.

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

I don't know why but I really couldn't enjoy this book as much as I wanted to, first of all she wanted to die, had a suicide pact with her somewhat gay friend James, and I was ok for that story line, then she meets Dean a jock basketball player and does a 180 and is all happy chappy, I feel all this book was really about was trying to advocate how by not committing suicide how great life could be with the hole white picket fence and 3.5 kids hence Deans perfect family.

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.

Definitely did not enjoy this as much as her novels, its my least favourite out of the ones I have read so far. I just felt that the protagonist went on about her self too much! The suicide story line I quite liked, but I didn't enjoy Madison going on about someone else 'stealing her thunder', and because of this I found that I was hesitant in liking her through-out the rest of the book.

Whilst I am a sucker for a love-story, the topic from the beginning meant I only really saw Madison as how sh
Hang on a sec while I heft Dean up onto my pile of book boyfriends........

Right, now that's sorted, I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it deals with a delicate subject matter which IMO needs to be dealt with more often and spoken about it more openly.
I wish all teens would read this and realize that they are not alone and that there is another way & that they would be missed so dearly by someone whether they realize it or not.

Even though the subject matter was dark I still found myself really likin

*dramatical voice* The problem isn't this book. It's ME. There's no spark or whatsoever. I don't know. Perhaps I've read the bestest (better than the best!) books similar to this plot? You know, characters with family problems, dark pasts, suicidal tendencies and all that. I could add a star for the "romance" but honestly I didn't feel anything for Dean. (See, I'm not kidding when I said "The problem is me".. haha.) I could be generous and add a star if I swooned but I didn't. Hence, the 3 stars ...more
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.

Miss Me Not is about many things. It's about love, friendship and trust. About past mistakes and how they can weigh us down. It's about self-punishment and atonement, about falling apart and trying to make things right again. Picking up the pieces. Allowing yourself to be happy again. It's about being judged by others and judging yourself. It's about loneliness and isolation (often times self imposed). It's about family and how having one can sometimes make you feel even more alone, more misunde ...more

This is my story. No, I’m not Madison – never been a teenage girl, and I never did the things that she did in her past. My parents paid lots of attention to me – probably too much. But you see, one of the “blessings” of being a manic depressive is that every few years (or months), you will decide to destroy yourself. You’ll think about it, you’ll make a plan, you’ll pick a date, you’ll count the days leading up to the deed, and then you’ll just do it. From the ages of 12 to 28, I tried 6 times. ...more
