Last summer Alice disappeared. After her ex-boyfriend started dating her (now also ex) best-friend, Brooke, Alice took everything she had learned about Agatha Christie and staged her own disappearance. Now she's back at school facing rumors and ridicule and stuck with a tutor to catch up on her school work. Iris, desperate for extra cash to escape to a new life, gets the tutoring gig. When Brooke disappears though and Alice's ex-boyfriend ends up the prime suspect for alleged murder none of the puzzle pieces seem to fit together quite the way the police say. Throw in a hefty reward from Brooke's wealthy grandmother and Iris and Alice find themselves working together to uncover the secrets of Brooke's final moments. The Agathas is full of twists and turns and keeps you on your toes until the very end. The true heart of the book though was the blossoming friendship between Iris and Alice when they each need it most. An excellent choice for your next murder mystery fix.
