You Must Not Miss | Katrina Leno

One of Us is Lying meets Carrie in this suspenseful story of friendship, family, and revenge. Magpie Lewis started writing in her yellow notebook the day her family self-destructed. That was the night Eryn, Magpie's sister, skipped town and left her to fend for herself. That was the night of Brandon Phipp's party. Now, Magpie is called a slut whenever she walks down the hallways of her high school, her former best friend won't speak to her, and she spends her lunch period with a group of misfits who've all been socially exiled like she has. And so, feeling trapped and forgotten, Magpie retreats to her notebook, dreaming up a place called Near. Near is perfect--somewhere where her father never cheated, her mother never drank, and Magpie's own life never derailed so suddenly. She imagines Near so completely, so fully, that she writes it into existence, right in her own backyard. It's a place where she can have anything she wants...even revenge. You Must Not Miss is a twisted and suspenseful tale of magic, menace, and the monsters that live inside us all.

"Everybody has a reason to want to change their lives" Magpie has some of the best. I love how it ended feeling complete. I liked Magpie as a character and her new group of outcast friends. I was blown away by the topics covered and the way they were talked about from transgendered characters to sexual abuse were elegantly addressed. I recommend this to anyone who loves sci-fi and contemporary mashups while dealing with grand scale issues.

This book was weird but I loved it! It‘s one of those books that you have to read for yourself.

*My HS book club received free copies of this to read from @lbschool Hmm... this is fantasy but yet most of it is realistic fiction.
I needed to suspend reality and just give myself over to the story. It definitely was like nothing I've read before with the dashes of fantasy and horror tossed in an otherwise normal HS girl story! I say 3/5 ⭐️

MrsGreen A few students in my book club rated this 1 star, with one saying she wanted to throw it across the room, others were more in the middle. 11mo
