One of Us is Lying

As the holidays get closer and closer, my free time is dedicated to driving seven hours back home to visit family. I had to go this weekend and I have to go next weekend! Oh yes. Lots of driving. Because this book has went through travel, this poor book has been lost and coffee got spilled on it!


One of Us is Lying is a YA novel about an allergic reaction that actually turns out to be… a murder?!

It is told in four different perspectives; each of the four characters narrating are the suspects. Karen McManus sticks to the high school stereotypes: the jock, the prom queen, the “nerd”, and the burnout. The kid who dies is the kid that runs the school gossip site. It turns out that he knows all of their secrets, and as far as the cops know, that’s their motive!

The story has a lot of twists and turns and you end up trusting no one! With the constant change in narration, there’s always a cliff hanger and the end of each character’s turn.

Recommendation: If you like YA, read it. It’s pretty good! It’s a fun concept (maybe I shouldn’t use the word fun about a murder…); no, enjoyable, yeah, let’s say enjoyable.
