Miss Me Not by Tiffany King

Goodreads Description:

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.

Mary's Review:

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 two books for me.

When I read Tiffany King for the first time it was, Wishing For Someday Soon.  I don't even have words to describe how outstanding, moving, wonderful or gripping that book was.  I didn't think she could ever top that.

I was wrong.  Tiffany King just proved to me that she will be forever in my heart.  Tiffany King written an incredible book that will, without a doubt, move you.

Best Part of Book: Tiffany King is the best part book.  She lays a story that grips you from the beginning of page 1. Meet Madison a girl with a troubled past whose parents don't care about her.  She and her best friend, James, make a pact (like no other).  They are suicide buddies.  Now, if that doesn't grab you, Dean will!  Madison is just going through the motions and ends up being tutored by Dean.  He tried to be a friend to her, but Madison doesn't even like to be touched, let alone have another male friend.  Especially, one that cares about her feelings.  Through the story we find out Madison's heart wrenching back story.  (Yes I cried A LOT). I just wanted to reach through my Kindle, hold her and tell her it was going to be okay. This is a story that you have to read because my words will do it no justice.

Not so great about the book: NOT ONE THING IS WRONG WITH THIS BOOK!  Tiffany wrote a masterpiece and I will tell every single person that I know about it.  Even if I have to shout it from the rooftops.

This book will be released on Nov. 23, 2012.  I suggest that everyone get it!!!
