Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Martin tells the gripping story of Maggie, whose little sister has disappeared and may be gone forever. Ages 12-up.
Copyright 1987 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From School Library Journal

Grade 6-9 Tenth-grade Maggie and her older brother Mike are in charge of their half-sister Courtenay while their dad and their stepmother take a long-postponed honeymoon. To their horror, four-year-old Courtenay fails to return home from preschool, and it doesn't take long for them to realize that she's the victim of kidnappingor worse. The book chronicles what happens, including the involvement of police, other agencies, and private individuals as they assemble around the grief-stricken family to help them deal with the situation and to put into effect the mechanisms to search for the missing child. There's a great deal of information concerning how a missing child search works; in fact, occasionally the weight of the information intrudes upon the novel. Despite that, however, the suspense builds steadily throughout, as readers try to determine not only what has happened to Courtenay and at whose hands, but also who is making harassing and suggestive phone calls to Maggie. One of the solutions is fairly predictable, but the other comes as a real surprise. Middle school readers, including reluctant ones, will really care what happens to Courtenay and her family.

This is the best book in the entire world. No joke. I bought my first copy in a small hospital book sale, for a quarter and loved it ever since. I've recommended it to all my friends, and most of them loved it too. I love it so much that I'm writing my own sequal to it. I started yesturday, and already wrote twelve computer size 12 pages. I hope that It'll be a real book someday! Missing Since Monday is very suspensful, and interesting, and It really shows how a family treasures their children. My sequal is about the kidnapped girl, Courtnay when she's older, and how her life is going.
Read this book, Read this book, REad this book!!!! You don't wanna miss it!!!
P.S. I wish I could give it more stars!

Magggie's half sister, Courtie, has been kidnapped and Maggie's determined to get her back! Usually Leah(Maggie's stepmom) and Maggie disagree on a lot of things, but they both know that if Courtie's not back soon, well, she may never be coming back. The prime suspects are Leah's ex-husband, Maggie's mother, and a creepy teenage dropout. CD and BSC fans, this is a realistic, heartfelt book with characters that"guide" you through the book, and for those readers new to Martin's books, this is a good book to begin on. I highly recommend it!

A Kid's Review on May 22, 2003
Format: School & Library Binding
This book is by Ann M. Martin. It tells a story that I think may have happened to her or even one of her friends and she wrote about it because it sounded like a really good thing to write about at the time being .I also think she wrote it because others could relate to it and maybe even tell others about it to get there friends to read it. Those people might have even tried to contact her to find out how she felt when her s or her friend's sibling had disappeared. I guess all that I am saying is that this event happened sometime in her life so she wrote it to kind of describe it with out saying names. This book is a non-fiction and is a really good one if you are willing to sit down relax a while and read till you get tired or hungry.
Now the book is mainly about a little girl named Courtney but goes by coutie. Who gets on the bus and arrives to school but a women calls her over and she walks over and winds up in a car wit the women who her dad was married to a while ago. A little later her sister gets home and starts getting worried because Courtney has not got home yet. So the next day kids were getting out of school to help form a search party to find her along with the cops.
The one thing about this book is I would give it a ten for extremely good work and effort to change names and tell something that had something done to her in her life and changed it a little bit to make an exotic book come a live. Another reasons why is because I really loved her creativity she did to this to make a story seem a tiny bit different and neat at the same time.

My response to this was wow I really love it and want to read it more to possible see if there might be more of these stories written by the terrific writer who wrote this book.

Maggie Ellis, a sophomore in high school, lives with her father Owen, a children’s book editor; stepmother Leigh, a children’s book illustrator; older brother Mike, a high school senior; and four year old half sister Courtenay Louise, known as Courtie, in Princeton, NJ. Maggie and Mike’s mother took off when Maggie was seven, and Owen married Leigh when Maggie was eleven. The last five years with a stepmother have not been easy for Maggie. Mr. and Mrs. Ellis go on a long-delayed honeymoon to St. Barthelemy in the Caribbean and leave Maggie and Mike in charge of Courtie.

One Monday morning, Maggie sees Courtie off on the bus to her private preschool, and the little girl gets off the bus but never makes it into the school. Everyone assumes that Courtie has been kidnapped. Several suspects come to mind. There is Leigh’s first husband, Jack Tierno, who is upset that Leigh had a child with Owen when she couldn’t have one with him. Also, there is Maggie and Mike’s mom, Jessica, who is rather unstable and had a lot more deep, dark secrets than what their dad had told them. And there is that creepy Brad de Christopher, the older brother of their friends Andrew and Jane, who seems to be sweet on Maggie and jealous of her boyfriend David Jacobssen. Then Maggie starts getting mysterious phone calls and is followed by a strange green car. Who took Courtie? Will she ever be found? And what will happen to Maggie?

Ann Martin is a popular author for youth, best known for her “Baby-sitters Club” series for younger readers. Missing Since Monday is her second novel that deals with real crises and her first for older readers. Basically, it is a good, gripping story from a secular viewpoint.
