Okay, it's prob not a secret that I have a major author crush on Tiffany King. I love her style, her amazing narrative power, her gift for a clever turn of phrase, her ability to bring to life real feeling, relatable teens in believable situations.
But it's not just me who thinks so, check out these reviews of Miss Me Not from Goodreads:
"MMN was a fantastic read and is so beautifully written that I cried more than once, if not all the way through. MMN is raw and it cuts you right down to your core." Andrea Gage

"It grabs ahold of your heart and doesnt let go until the end...you will laugh and well I dont know how to tell you this...you WILL cry...unless you are a emotionless droid! I ramble but PLEASE trust me that is a MUST MUST MUST read!" Tressa Sager
"The book is intense and emotional. I had to put it down a few times to take a break. It made me laugh and cry. LOVE this book. Read it!!!" Jamie S.H.
As it happens, I know most of those reviewers, and I know that while they aren't stingy, they are def straight shooters, and when they rave about a book like this, it is worth running down.
So, check out Miss Me Not, and find out what all the shouting, the laughing, the crying and the not-put-it-downing is about! And also you can figure out what the whole "whore cat" thing is about!
Here's a taste of the tone, tenor and tale of Miss Me Not:
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.
