One of Us Is Lying by Karen M. McManus

 
You had me at.... it starts out like The Breakfast Club...I mean yes! Bring it on. Now I am left wondering what took me so long to pick up this book. I loved it. I think I was hesitate to read it due to it being classified as YA and I really have not read many YA. That might have to change!

Bayview High...detention...be there! The Breakfast Club vibe is strong when we start out with a rather unlikely group of kids meeting for detention. This is not your typical bunch of kids that frequent such punishments, in fact I think only one of them has had this joyful experience and that is Nate. I loved how the students were classified into their "groups" they associated with. The beauty, the brain, the criminal and the athlete...I mean we all know these groups really do exist in high school.

What did I love most? As a thriller genre reader, this book was a breath of fresh air. It had such a unique storyline and honestly I did not guess the ending. I had no idea who was to blame for only 4 students making it out alive! Everyone had a reason to want Simon silenced, but who actually silenced him forever?!!

I never thought I was a YA kind of girl but I guess I am 🤷‍♀️I really enjoyed this book ❤️Looking forward to One Of Us Is Next !
