One of Us is Lying

One of Us is Lying
By Karen M. McManus


Pay close attention and you might solve this.

On Monday afternoon, five students at Bayview High walk into detention.

Bronwyn, the brain, is Yale-bound and never breaks a rule.

Addy, the beauty, is the picture-perfect homecoming princess.

Nate, the criminal, is already on probation for dealing.

Cooper, the athlete, is the all-star baseball pitcher.

And Simon, the outcast, is the creator of Bayview High’s notorious gossip app.

Only, Simon never makes it out of that classroom. Before the end of detention Simon's dead. And according to investigators, his death wasn’t an accident. On Monday, he died. But on Tuesday, he’d planned to post juicy reveals about all four of his high-profile classmates, which makes all four of them suspects in his murder. Or are they the perfect patsies for a killer who’s still on the loose?

Everyone has secrets, right? What really matters is how far you would go to protect them.

5/5 Stars

I'm going to keep this review spoiler free, because I know that if someone spoiled this for me, I would be MAD. This was honestly one of the best books I've read in a while. Nothing like a good murder mystery right? This story is told in the perspectives of all of the suspects, so it makes it really interesting the whole time, because you're trying to figure out which one of them is the murderer, and you're reading it from their perspective. There were SO many twists in this story, every time you think you know what happens guess what? YOU DON'T. I finished this book like 2 weeks ago, and I am still shook. IT WAS RIGHT THERE IN FRONT OF ME!! That being said, I kind of figured out part of what happened (yay me?) I loved how all the characters had completely different personalities, and it made it so interesting to read. The characters also develop a lot during the story, and I love all of them. If you love mystery books, this is a must read!
