What Happened to Coco
by VB Furlong
Publication date: December 4th 2021
Genres: Thriller, Young Adult

Synopsis:

When a girl disappears, long-buried secrets resurface…

Coco is missing. Her room’s a mess, and her phone is left behind in her dorm at Lainsbury Hall School

Ella, Coco’s childhood best friend, is desperate for her to return, although she knows that if she ever sees Coco again, there’ll be a lot of explaining to do.

Bea knows that her new group of friends attracts drama, and she thinks she has the last shred of common sense between them all. Only, if that was true, she would leave Genevieve, her toxic ex, well alone.

Conrad is confident that Coco will return safe and well. Only, the way his secrets are unravelling, he’s worried he won’t be when this is all over.

Harrison and Coco are the perfect couple. Everyone knows that. But looks can be misleading. Even the smartest boy in school can make a terrible mistake.

In order to navigate the web of secrets and lies that Coco leaves behind, her circle of friends needs to unravel a few of their own.

But the question remains: What happened to Coco?

And now it’s time to read a short excerpt from What Happened to Coco:

In the misty darkness lit only by a blue streetlamp, Ella knew  that she was not alone. She turned and saw the faceless figure  far down the drizzly street. It came towards her at speed. It  didn’t seem to be moving, but she knew that it was gaining  on her. She started to run, but her legs would not move. She  was stuck, as though in quicksand. 

When she dared check over her shoulder once again, the  figure was only about five steps away, and she could see  raspy breaths escape the black silhouette in a wispy white  cloud. The scene whirred in front of Ella as she pulled on her  legs, sobbing, begging them to move. But they would not. All  she could hear was the breathing, slow and rattling, as though  it was the figure’s very last. Four. Three. Two. 

It was the skeletal hand on her shoulder that woke her.  In the darkness of her room, she was alone. She turned her  alarm off and felt uneasy in the silence. She was soaking wet,  her back from sweat, her face from tears.  

She washed her face, hardly daring to open her eyes and  look into the mirror above the sink. She felt watched, hunted. As she brushed her teeth, she turned on all her lights and  opened the dreary brown curtains that Lainsbury Hall School  had placed in all the dorms. But even in her bright vanity  lamps that took over her dressing table, drowning her in  bright white light as she did her make up, her eyes darted  around the corners of her mirrors, checking all angles of the  room in the reflection for the faceless spectre. She was not  herself today. Then again, she hadn’t been herself yesterday,  either.
