One of Us is Lying

One of Us Is Lying by Karen M. McManus

5 suspicious Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Synopsis

The Breakfast Club meets Pretty Little LiarsOne of Us Is Lying is the story of what happens when five strangers walk into detention and only four walk out alive. Everyone is a suspect, and everyone has something to hide.

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.”

Review

Please ignore all comparisons of this book to The Breakfast Club…. and go into this book with an open mind….

The only similarity to this book and that fabulous 80s movie is these five very stereotyped teenagers spend some time in detention together… this is where the similarities end…. and I mean this in a good way…. I really enjoyed this book….

Loved all these characters….. and I really wanted them all to be innocent…. it was fun and interesting to see all the character growth in all of them stemming from this tragedy….. they all had secrets to hide, but ultimately I think they found strength in each other….

I really don’t want to say too much… but I didn’t see the end coming until quite late in the book…. and it still surprise me some….

Absolutely recommend whether you are a fan of young adult or not…. any age this is a fabulous book filled with wonderful characters and twists and turns….. Who is lying?

Enjoy solving the mystery,

Berit

      • I do sometimes throw in comparisons, but I try to point out specifics to why, so I’m not leading people to believe the whole thing is similar. I really hate when publishers compare to really popular books or shows, like ACOTAR and GOT. Those are the ones I have seen the most, lol. I hope I can catch up on my tbr and get to it in the near future! 🙂
