My book of the week is The Agathas by Kathleen Glasgow and Liz Lawson (click for link to Goodreads)
Book Description From Goodreads:
“Welcome to Castle Cove — a town cursed with missing girls,
bad boyfriends, family secrets,
and some very steep cliffs.
Last summer, Alice Ogilvie’s basketball-star boyfriend, Steve, dumped her. Then she disappeared for five days. Where she went and what happened to her is the biggest mystery in Castle Cove. Or at least it was. Because now, another one of Steve’s girlfriends has vanished: Brooke Donovan, Alice’s ex-best friend. And it doesn’t look like Brooke will be coming back …
Enter Iris Adams, Alice’s tutor. Iris has her own reasons for wanting to disappear, though unlike Alice, she doesn’t have the money or the means. That could be changed by the hefty reward Brooke’s family is offering. The police are convinced Steve is the culprit, but Alice isn’t so sure, and with Iris on her side, she just might be able to prove her theory.
Luckily, Alice has exactly what they need to crack the case — the complete works of Agatha Christie. If there’s anyone who can teach the girls how to solve a mystery, it’s the master herself. But the town of Castle Cove holds many secrets, and Alice and Iris have no idea how much danger they’re about to walk into …”
FRIDAY 56 QUOTE
” I saw her, I ran after her. She vanished. I went home. I got home around 10:15pm. It’s lunchtime now, and the cops are here in the cafeteria. How long has no one heard a word from Brooke? I saw Coach this morning on my way to class. He looked the way he always does: kind of grumpy, clutching his class folders and a clipboard.”
It was difficult to pick a bit that would make sense without having to copy out the whole page, however, I think that this bit demonstrates the panic that is starting to happen, and highlights the questions that are beginning to emerge.
