Fun YA murder mystery where unlikely allies Alice and Iris are thrown together and end up working to solve the murder of another student.

The Agathas refer to Agatha Christie and quotes from her books preface each chapter and provide hints at what is going on.

While light hearted overall, the book does deal with serious issues and this is acknowledged in the afterword.

Listened to audio with 3 separate narrators which was very entertaining.

This teen murder mystery has great characters, a pacy plot, and a few twists and turns. It also has adults encouraging teens ti behave in dangerous ways and side issues of abandonment and domestic abuse. I will definitely recommend this one.

Fun YA Agatha Christie inspired teen detective book that had definite Veronica Mars vibes. This was a fun, engaging read and decent mystery. I‘m definitely going to read the next in the series.

BennettBookworm Oh neat! I wonder if @LiteraryinLawrence would like this! 12mo

I was just looking back at my November reads and realised I didn‘t review this one. November had me all upside down and I didn‘t actually get much reading done. But this one was perfect for a not totally focused brain. Fun, Agatha Christie inspired YA mystery. Nothing to heavy but also enough to keep me engaged and wondering.

This book is a great way to spend a weekend. If you know much about Agatha Christie, your pleasure will be all the deeper.

Kathleen Glasgow met with the teen group (cropped out) I help organize. My favorite thing about Kathleen is how much she cares about her readers & teens in general. If you‘re on TikTok, she‘s pretty fun there too!

RebL The tagged book doesn‘t include co-author Liz Lawson! 😯 2y

A rainy, 58° morning after weeks in the upper 80s, so what else would I be doing but sitting on my porch swing, drinking coffee, listening to the rain, & reading? And this cover 😍. A YA mystery told from alternating perspectives of 2 teens who team up to figure out who murdered their classmate. One of the girls is an Agatha Christie enthusiast and the other brings along her ragtag group of friends on the case. It was a fun read for sure!

This is quite similar to the Magpie Society which I just posted. This one is set in the US. Again two young ladies investigate the murder of another young lady. There is a school setting, also really enjoyed it.

Wealthy, popular Alice and poor, hard worker Iris are thrown together by a tutoring arrangement when Alice‘s former best friend goes missing. The police seem uninterested in investigating, assuming she ran away, but Alice and Iris set out to find out what happened. This is a fun YA mystery. I enjoyed the story and the characters.

I enjoyed this young adult homage to Agatha Christie. I guessed the killer right from the beginning, but I was happy to go along for the ride and be proven right and I liked the characters. It was probably a lucky hunch anyway.

4.5 stars, I really enjoyed this book! I'm working my way through Agatha Christie's work so this was extra fun. I didn't figure out the who-dun-it until later in the book, which is always a plus. I appreciate the domestic abuse part of the book as well. It added another layer to the book as did Alice's disappearance mystery. I also loved most of the characters. I really hope that there's a sequel, as the ending seemed open to that!

A little bit Agatha Christie, with a dash of Scoobie-Doo…this was a fun read. It felt like it was open to a sequel; there was room for these characters to progress, especially the gang that backs up the leads. (I‘m a little tired of the divisions in the cafeteria trope but that might just be me. )

This YA mystery is a satisfying Mean Girls/Agatha Christie/Scooby-Doo/buddy mash-up. Read my full review here: https://debbybrauer.org/#the-agathas

For #traveltheunitedstates I‘ve picked this YA whodunnit set in #california. This story was really engaging with an Agatha Christie theme. The pacing at first was a little slow but it did find its groove and turned into a decent read #maybookclubs #mayreading #springread
