One of Us Is Lying
One of Us Is Lying | Karen M. Mcmanus
The Breakfast Club meets Pretty Little Liars, One 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.

I just finished reading this. I really like pretending to be a detective and the separate points of view. I called it at the beginning but I questioned myself as soon as we were told about their motives. I can't wait to read the next one!

I don't know why I “so-so“ 'd this book, but... I decided to start the Peacock TV series as a good distraction while I try to recuperate from COVID. I feel better, then worse, then better. It's rather frustrating.

Switching between Bronwyn, Addy, Nate, and Cooper, Karen McManus entangles the reader though empathy achieved by subtle use of disadvantage, context, and vulnerability.

This was a great YA mystery/thriller. If you aren't a fan of YA books though you probably won't to avoid this one.

I listened to the audiobook, and the cast of narrators did am excellent job. The action starts early on and the author keeps you guessing throughout. I might have to try the TV show now.

Gossip Girl meets Pretty Little Liars. What's not to love!? The 4 main characters were in the wrong place at the wrong time and now are the main suspects in a murder! We spend the entire book trying to figure out who did it!? As we try to figure out who the killer is, dirty little secrets start to pour out. No one leaves unscathed.

You know you love me 😘

I accidentally found out part of who did it (not tryna spoil it but yk). For me, it wasn't impossible to put down, but there again I have never had the experience of that. This is definitely up there as one of my favorite books and I give it a 4.5 although I do recommend it more than any other book I've read. Even being spoiled, Karen M. Mcmanus made it still so fun to read for me. Overall 4.5 stars and definetly recommend!!

7/10
This was a very quick and easy read for me, which I enjoyed! The plot was thick and the build up of secrets for the characters was intriguing throughout. This made it easy to connect to the Bayview Four and really sympathize with their stories. I can‘t say I was unbelievably shocked by the outcome, with the exception of one characters role, but enjoyed it nonetheless. I have yet to watch the show but might give it a try to compare the two!

Hands down one of the best books I‘ve read so far! The plot? Brilliant! The characters? Fantastic!
It was like I was watching pretty little liars in my head. I‘m a sucker for murder mysteries and this had me on edge at every single page.
I highly recommend it!

Rating: 4/5

This YA gets right to the action in chapter 1, and I was hooked and stayed up until 2am to finish it. (Something I haven‘t done with a book in over a year). There was a clue that revealed the twist only about halfway through the book. I was hoping it was a red herring and would change course and completely surprise me, but that wasn‘t the case. Despite predicting the end, I still was excited for the journey and how it all tied together. 4/5 ⭐️

Five students walk into detention and only four walk out alive, making them the obvious suspects. And since all of them had secrets they didn't want exposed, the police see motive for any of them to be involved. I enjoyed this quick, pulpy whodunnit. And the twist was a good one! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I decided that this would be my first read, just to ease me back into the hobby. It looked lighthearted, interesting, and funny in a dark kind of way.

And I think it delivered. The reveal was kind of a letdown, but otherwise I really enjoyed getting to know the characters. Addy reminds me of Cassie from Euphoria, haha!

In this unpredictable murder mystery novel, we follow the story of 4 young high school students and their involvement of the murder of a classmate, Simon Kellehar. They were all in detention one day when Simon mysteriously dropped dead. We learn of their involvments, if any, and discover many troubling things about each person, they all have their own secrets. (rest in comments)

kyra.piekema This book is written from a first person perspective which we can tell from the use of pronouns such as I, me, our, us, etc. Each chapter the perspective switches to a new character and we gain knowledge of their inner thoughts and feelings of each. The major themes in this novel are the desire to be better than others, the effects of peoples opinions as well as truth vs lies and seeing the differences between the two. (edited) 12mo
kyra.piekema I would recommend this book to readers looking for an enticing mystery story with many twists and turns, particularly young adults. I would rate this book a 3.5 out of 5. It was a desent story and quite an easy read. 12mo
MissYaremcio Nicely done Kyra! Such a good read! 6/6 12mo

A small group of students attending Bayview high school are in detention. 4 of the students witness their peer have a severe allergic reaction, even though the last thing he consumed was water. He had to go the hospital where he died. Later it‘s found out that there‘s more to his death then it seemed, and that all the students in detention had reason for wanting him dead.

I had heard of this book before but I don‘t usually read YA novels. When I found out they made a show on Peacock based off of the book I had to read it because I won‘t watch the show without reading the book first! I really enjoyed the book and look forward to reading the next and also other books by the author! I also look forward to watching the show! 4🌟!

MyNamesParadise I listened to this book when it came out and loved it! I heard they were making a show but I don‘t have Peacock. I binged season 1 when I was housesitting for a friend who has Peacock. I bought both books in the series and am eager for the third one! I want to watch season 2! 2w

I loved book 1, liked book 2 so I thought I would give the new Peacock show a chance. It's interesting. That is about all I can say. It does not have the mystery and intrique of the book. But that may be because I know the killer already. You can watch the first 3 episodes for free. And while I did like them, I didn't like them enough to pay for peacock to watch the rest.

This book was way better than it's series adaption. The characters are well constructed, the plot, the dialogue. wow! I couldn't put the book down. This book tormented me (in a good way) to finish it. The character development in the book felt natural. Their development didn't feel forced or rushed in the book like on the series. My favorite character was Addy I love seeing her growth and change in personality.

Just watched the last five episodes of this on Stan. Gotta say, wasn‘t a fan of the ending at all, it‘s more like Pretty Little Liars or I Know What You Did Last Summer. I did grow to like the actors though, they did a pretty good job all up. 26pts #TeamSlaughter #Scarathlon2021
