Review: One of Us is Lying - Karen McManus

One of Us Is Lying

Review: One Of Us Is Lying - Karen McManus - May 2017
When I read the back of this book at work, I knew I wanted to read it as the book sounded a little like The Breakfast Club movie but with a twist and as I was reading the book , the tagline that could sum up One of Us Is Lying could be The Breakfast Club meets Pretty Little Liars.  Like The Breakfast Club, there are five people in detention one Monday afternoon. You have the Outcast, Homecoming Princess, Brain, Jock, and Criminal. On this particular detention day, the Outcast Simon ends up dead. The only ones in the room were the other four. So which one killed him or did they work together? The thing is that each one in the room had a dark secret they were hiding and Simon - the deceased ran a Gossip App called About That which was about to expose them all. As the week goes on and then the month as the investigation goes viral, someone is publishing their secrets and making them look as guilty as one another. Who is trying to set them up for the fall and why? I have to admit when I saw the ending and discovered who was doing the Tumblr posts, that was a surprise for me as I never saw them as a suspect. One of Us is Lying is a YA book set in the final year of high school and shows readers that we all have secrets and some of us hide them better than others.  If you are on the lookout for a YA Suspense novel, then check out Karen McManus's One of Us is Lying today.
