Editorial Reviews


“A mesmerizing, punch-in-the-gut story about the power of friendship and the horrors hiding right in front of us.” — Laurie Halse Anderson, author of Speak and Chains

“This thought-provoking thriller examines issues such as abuse, gentrification, and the marginalization of people of color with nuance and sensitivity. The narrative deftly moves back and forth between past and present, building to a devastating conclusion. A spellbinding, profoundly moving choice for YA collections.” — School Library Journal (starred review)

“Jackson effortlessly weaves elements of suspense with issues of race, class, and gender, casting a harsh light on a world that often refuses to notice the disappearances of black and brown girls. The twist at the end is both gaspworthy and heartbreaking.” — Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books (starred review)

“Jackson doesn’t hold anything back when it comes to the pain of abuse and the ramifications of turning a blind eye. It’s a frank, devastating read filled with real and flawed characters, and it’s a story that needs to be read.” — Booklist

“In addition to a gripping plot line, underlying social issues bubble beneath the surface, such as neighborhood gentrification, race, poverty, community, the healing of connection, and the destruction in disconnection.” — The Horn Book

“The gravest, most fundamental challenge in Tiffany D. Jackson’s devastating novel is leveled at a society that purports to value children while allowing untold numbers of them, particularly poor children and children of color, to fall through the cracks.” — Chicago Tribune

PRAISE FOR ALLEGEDLY: ★ “With remarkable skill, Jackson offers an unflinching portrayal of the raw social outcomes when youth are entrapped in a vicious cycle of nonparenting and are sent spiraling down the prison-for-profit pipeline. Dark, suspenseful.” — School Library Journal (starred review)

★ “Her novel effectively joins Ava DuVernay’s documentary 13th and Michelle Alexander’s The New Jim Crow (2010) to become another indictment of the penal system’s decimating power beyond its bars and, more subtly and refreshingly, a pro-reproductive-justice novel. Searing and true.” — Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

★ “The characters are complex, the situation unsettling, and the line between right and wrong hopelessly blurred. It’s also intensely relevant, addressing race, age, and mental illness within the criminal justice system. Well conceived and executed, this is an absorbing and exceptional first novel.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)

★ “Suspenseful without being emotionally manipulative, compelling without resorting to shock value, this is a tightly spun debut that wrestles with many intense ideas and ends with a knife twist that will send readers racing back to the beginning again.” — Booklist (starred review)

“Seen through Jackson’s dark portrait of the legal system and the failures of parents and social workers, Mary’s environments are as grim as the stories that play out in them; readers fascinated by procedural dramas will be thoroughly hooked.” — Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“A well-executed, powerful journey into the claustrophobic life of a young girl trying to navigate what little is left after the world has judged her, and what she will do to escape it.” — Mindy McGinnis, Edgar Award-winning author of A Madness So Discreet

“A riveting, gut-wrenching thriller and a stunning debut.” — Daniel José Older, New York Times bestselling author of Shadowshaper 

“Tiffany Jackson’s timely and chilling debut will haunt you for a long time. An extraordinary new voice.” — Justine Larbalestier, author of Liar and My Sister Rosa

4.0 out of 5 stars Good little book but read it through an 8th graders perspective instead of an adult
By blueskysunburn on November 3, 2021
"You did save her, Claudia! You saved her from that house for years and you didn't even know it."

I chaperoned an 8th-grade field trip for an all-girls school and saw three girls with this book. Speaking to a couple of teachers at lunch, one of them mentioned they had seen it circulating between many girls the last couple of months. We all decided to give it a read. I tried to do my best to read this from an 8th grader's perspective instead of an adult's. Due to this, I think my rating is a little higher than some others I have seen.

The book was a little difficult to follow along as it jumped back and forth in the timeline. Though I was able to breeze through this book in a couple of days, I found myself having to stop multiple times to go back to look at chapter titles. There wasn't significant depth given to the characters other than the two main girls. As with a lot of YA books, the character development felt rushed and glossed over. What was there, seemed repetitive. I get it, she liked to do nails.

I thought the book gave great insight into child abuse in the home, children slipping through cracks in the system, and the blind eye given to the lower-income neighborhoods. I felt she hit the nail on the head with how the daughters hid the abuse for fear of being separated. She was spot on about adults suspecting and either choosing not to involve themselves or doing too little about it.

I liked how she made Claudia dyslexic. I don't feel like enough attention is given to this disability and is overlooked more often than we think. I do think it was a little far-fetched Monday was able to redo all Claudia's school work and no one, minus one teacher, suspected her struggle the whole time.

The ending I was not a fan of. I had a hard time following her two-year mental breakdown. I felt it completely unnecessary. The author tried to tie it in a couple of times before the end of the book but it felt disjointed. Earlier in the book when Claudia told Michael he wrote the wrong date on his paper, I had to stop and go back through other pages to figure out what she was talking about. After it mentions her breakdown, the story then picks back up doing things and talking to people like the breakdown didn't happen. You end up thinking it has jumped back in time like it did throughout the book and then it mentions it's in the present and references her breakdown again.

The other thing that bothered me was Claudia's last journal entry. Aside from being dyslexic, this girl flat out had literacy problems. Do I think she could have jumped leaps and bounds after her disability was addressed? Yes. However, you're trying to convince me she is now completely literate and has perfect grammar within a two-year (mental breakdown included) time frame? No. Reading that entry actually pulled me out of the story because it wasn't logical.

Critiques aside, I think it was an overall good little YA book that tried to address some issues within today's society. While it definitely has a few issues, I think it did a decent job addressing the target audience and can understand why it's circulating through an 8th-grade group of girls.
