One of Us is Lying

~ I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~


Synopsis (from Amazon):  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. 



One (or more) Sentence Summary:  One of Us is Lying is a modern day Breakfast Club with a twist.  I loved the characters and could not solve "who did it."  Can't wait to read One of Us is Next, due out in January!

  1. My daughter finished this one this morning and said she loved it and didn't see the ending coming at all, so I might have to read it before she brings it back to the library!
