Monday’s Not Coming by Tiffany D. Jackson, a book review submitted by Santana Wilson

Monday’s Not Coming by Tiffany D. Jackson, a book review submitted by Santana Wilson Monday’s Not Coming by Tiffany D. Jackson is a novel I had a hard time putting down. Monday’s Not Coming follows Claudia, the main character, in a search for her best friend Monday. When Claudia’s best friend Monday goes missing, she worries something has happened to her. She fears no one is searching for her or even believes that she is missing. Although this book is fiction, it speaks to the real-world issue of when young black girls go missing. This novel was eye-opening to read in the sense that it shows how susceptible society can be to the normalization of thoughtlessly ignoring when a young black girl goes missing. The novel can get confusing at times when you take into account the way the author divided it. It is possible that you may find yourself confused at the beginning of the novel, not really knowing which time of her life she is in. Tiffany D. Jackson was very adept with the style of her writing, it kept me engaged in the story she was telling. I always found myself wanting to know more of the story.

Emotions as Humans by Mahogany

Mahogany submitted these original illustrations "inspired by @lavendertowne's series "If ___ turned to cute girls (Or guys)". I made this because I felt like inside out didn't have enough positive characters. Here's some quirks for all of them. (1) Love has the ability to melt into a puddle and move around like Splatoon characters (Minus the squid). I did this because love sometimes makes you feel like melting into a puddle. (2) Whenever I think of Curiosity, I think about young children, so that's why he looks the youngest (Though he's probably as old as Joy and sadness). He probably stores everything he finds interesting in his hair. I also think he can't say something without making it sound like a question. (3) Nostalgia probably sounds like the women on the T.V. during the 50s. She's basically the parent friend. (4) I like to think that Tired always does night shifts, which is why he might always be tired. He always whispers when he talks."
