Senior year. The homestretch.
Honor student, Grace Warner, had it easy. Popularity, friends, attention from her crush, even a soccer scholarship offer—if only she can figure out her senior project to graduate on time. Getting approval to write about someone’s life-changing event, Grace recruits her sassy grandma as her mentor who can’t wait to tell the crazy story from her childhood. Events in the early sixties are words in history books to Grace, but her grandma lived them. She witnessed the civil rights movement in full swing, desegregation becoming a reality in her southern town, Martin Luther King, Jr. moving the country with his iconic speech, and the country coming to a halt when President Kennedy was assassinated. Grace loves finding out her family history but didn’t know the project would have her noticing hardships and prejudices at her school she hadn’t before. When the homecoming court is announced and new kid, Jacob Horton, is nominated as a colossal prank, it brings Grace to a choice, much like her grandmother years before her. God is about to use her in a miracle if she chooses correctly. If she fails, a life could be lost.

See you Monday was a good book. I enjoyed it. Grace is interviewing her Grandma Sandy about her life changing event for her Senior project. It sounds easy enough but the stories she tells start to change Grace’s perspective and her life.I liked how the story jumped back and forth between the present and the past. It flowed well and felt like you were sitting there listening too. I could visualize ihat was happening clearly. The snake story gave me the willies. All the characters were fun and we’ll developed. They felt like real people. I can’t decide who I like best.
I liked how Kristen Terrette tackled tough subjects like racism and bullying in a engaging way. It informed but didn’t preach. Its something we’ve all dealt with at one time or another in our live. I really think the reader can learn valuable lessons along with Grace. The main theme I got from this story is to pray and listen to the gentle or not so gentle nudging of the Lord. If you do, you can change the future.
I recommend this book to my family and friends.
