Book Review For One Of Us Is Lying

Author – Karen M Mcmanias

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 gave this 4 stars

My Thoughts

I was so gripped, I knew I was going to read till the very end to find out what happened. I mean who doesn’t love a who did it book?!

Why I Enjoyed This Read

The plot twist at the end was worth the wait!! I loved every character’s story, I loved how we weren’t just hearing from one of the character’s, we got to know them all. My fav has to be Addy I think, even tho she made a mistake it turned out to be the right mistake.

I loved following Nate and Bronwyn, the bond growing.

Who Would Enjoy This Read

Anyone who loves a who did it mystery, you’ll love this one. So much suspense and excitement as you read on to find out what really happened in that classroom. Its a story that brings 4 people who wouldnt spend time together, closer than ever because they are now connected.

Overall Thoughts

I got confused at first with all the different character’s but after a while you get to know who’s who and it all makes sense and you manage to keep up. They are all different in their own way and all have a different story as to who they are and how they were in the classroom in the first place.

    This sounds like a great plot concept, and it looks like the book lives up to it. Your summary definitely piqued my interest! What kind of age range would you recommend this book to? It sounds like it could be quite an intense read, would you say 18 and up, or is it less intense than it sounds? Thanks again for the great review!

    Okay, I clicked the link, and I’m going to buy this book on Friday when I get paid. I am a total book lover and am always looking for something new to read, so your website is bookmarked as a new favorite. While I don’t normally read mysteries or “who did it” type books, the various characters and social concept behind this book really appeals to me. I’m also a writer, and I am always interested in seeing how other writers pull off complex storylines with multiple main characters. I can’t wait to see who the focal character is and how the author juggles the storylines and brings them all together. I am excited for this one…please keep reviewing!
