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.
Miss Me Not is a tale of a young high school girl whose pretty much abandoned by her family because of a mistake she made when she was 13.
She stumbles through life feeling she has nothing to live for. She hides behind baggy clothes and tries to fade into the background and be non-existent. She and her one and only friend James make a pact. They will both commit suicide together. Nobody will miss them or so Madison thinks until a fellow classmate commits suicide. The reaction she witnesses is anything but what she thought would happen.
I really enjoyed this story. To be honest I haven’t read one of Ms King works that I didn’t like. She’s an amazing storyteller. She draws you in from page one with heartfelt situations that happen in real life.
I highly recommend Miss Me Not. I loved everything about it. It’s a great story from beginning to end. Be sure to check out other works by Ms King. You won’t be disappointed.
