The second in a trilogy, it raised almost as many questions as it resolved from the first book, but in the most deliciously mysterious way! This author has me hooked! Counting down the days (8) until the third book is released!!!

Woooow I loved this even more than the first!!! This was so great. I love Stevie and her group of friends, honestly all the characters in this series are top notch!! I especially loved the flash backs and interview segments in this book! I can‘t wait for the finale to this series!! And look forward to reading note from Maureen Johnson!!

Rating: 3/5 Stars

This book falls in the second book syndrome and felt like a filler book. A lot really doesn‘t go on. Not much shock value and just fell flat to me. I did love Stevie‘s character with her mental illness. It made her feel real and very relatable to. The humor was on point and was great comedic relief. David was just a hot mess. I‘m hoping book 3 is better and has those oh my gosh twists in them. #litsy #littens #bookstagram

Really, that‘s how we‘re gonna end it? Just when answers are finally starting to happen? That‘s just cold, Maureen Johnson, cold. Solid 4.5/5. Bravo, I liked this one better than the first.

I cannot wait for the third installment. I loved the roaring 20s murder mystery meets modern teen drama. The past and present intertwine creatively. Full of quirky and interesting characters set at a beautiful and intriguing boarding school. Johnson has made me wish I could attend this school as much as I want to attend Hogwarts even with all the murders.

Again, with the cliffhanger ending!!!! When the third book comes out, I'm buying it right away. No more jealousy because my bookish friends read it weeks ago. No more waiting for this mystery chick! 😉

ladym30 Love the duck!❤️ 3mo
JoyBlue @ladym30 It cracks me up! I think this came from the kick-off of this year's summer reading program at our library [time flies so fast, it's hard to keep up with what happened when]. My husband let me pick his duck, too, so I have the science fiction duck, too. Its hat is a spaceship. 😂 3mo
ladym30 @JoyBlue What a great idea from the library. Please post the science fiction duck some time. I would love to see it😍 3mo

It's better than book one. A lot. Though I still dislike the characters but am in love with the mystery. Odd combination.

I need the final book in this series right now. The pace of is somewhat slow for the entire book, except for the last 30 minutes of the audiobook where you are hit with intense revelations and shocking news and obviously a deadly cliffhanger. This was more enjoyable than the first book and if you love wild unexpected twists you're in for a treat.

lahousewyfe YES! When I last checked it wasn't even available for preorder. Argh!!! 5mo
lahousewyfe Wait! I just checked again and it's scheduled for release in January. Preorder success! 5mo

Great sequel. Enjoyed as much as the first book. Son (15) and i listened to this driving to and from practice. Both are dying bc book 3 is not out until January 2020.😳 This picks right up from book 1 in the dual timeline murder mysteries surrounding a private school and some very smart kids. Enough background that you could read as a stand alone but why would you want to do that. Book 1 is also excellent

In life, the murderer is anyone. The reasons, the methods, the circumstances-the paths to becoming a murderer are as numerous as the stars. Understanding this is the first step to finding a murderer. You have to shut down the voices in your mind that say, “it has to be this person.” Murderers aren‘t a type. They‘re anyone.

I am really enjoying this series! I do wish I had discovered it a few years in the future when all the books have been published because the cliffhangers are killer and the waits have been so long! I‘m thoroughly enjoying the mysteries in this series, I‘m so much looking forward to the next book being published.

MallenNC I‘m looking forward to the next one too! I didn‘t read the first one until book two was out. 7mo
Cammy1 @MallenNC that‘s good timing, you didn‘t have to wait so long between books! This wait for book three is going to be so long! 7mo

Johnson is really leaning into the cliff hangers with this series, but she did a good job of including enough of the details from the first book (which I read a year ago when it came out) that I wasn't lost so hopefully that will be true of the third book as well. Fun, angsty mystery with much more to uncover.

Hungrily devoured to fill the void left by finishing Truly Devious. Also enjoyed with the same quirky fun and slight spookiness. So many answers but even more questions - I had to google to be reassured that a third book is expected!!! But when ? - cos I need it now. Another 4 out of 5 stars for me ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

1. Reading! It's the only hobby I keep up with.
2. Mystery/ Thrillers is my go to genre, but I'm a fan of almost any genre.
3. 1 dog (Pages) and 2 cats (Hanna and Alabama).
4. Yes... although I probably need to do a little cleanup, but I'm not currently doing any exchanges.
5. Coffee mugs and Funko Pop and Halloween stuff.
6. Nope!

I remember being extremely frustrated after finishing the first book because it left everything so incredibly up in the air. I think I feel even more frustrated at the end of this second installment! Decent mystery, especially since it‘s YA and a good YA mystery is a bit unusual. A year to wait before the sequel comes out, the final in the series, when the entire mystery BETTER BE wrapped up, lol!!
