On an oppressively sizzling Monday in August of 1966, a pupil and previous marine named Charles Whitman hauled a footlocker of weapons to the pinnacle of the collage of Texas tower and started firing on pedestrians less than. Monday, Monday follows 3 scholars stuck up within the bloodbath: Shelly, who leaves type and walks without delay into the trail of the bullets, and cousins, Wyatt and Jack, who heroically rush from their study rooms to aid the victims.
This searing day marks the start of a courting that would entangle those 3 youth in a forbidden love affair, a bootleg being pregnant, and a vow of silence that would span 40 years. Reunited many years after the tragedy, Shelly, Wyatt, and Jack should be thrown again once again to the development that modified their lives, and faced with the lingering energy of a mystery none of them are able to demonstrate. With Monday, Monday, "Elizabeth criminal has written a rare novel-an eloquent love tale born from an act of random violence, a story of destruction and redemption" (Sarah Bird).
