One of Us Is Lying (One of Us Is Lying #1) by Karen McManus

Updated: Aug 17, 2022

"That's the kind of person you can get away with killing: someone everybody else wants dead."

The Lowdown

Bronwyn, Addy, Nate, Cooper and Simon walk into detention, but one of them doesn't make it out. Simon, the creator of a juicy gossip app, is dead and had planned to release secrets about all of them the next day. Now they are all suspects in his murder!

How far would you go to keep your secrets?

This book is written from Bronwyn, Addy, Nate and Cooper's point of view, first person.


The Feels

I basically accused almost everyone of murder by the end of the book! I love a good mystery and this kept me on my toes. Had me rereading to see if I missed anything. Everyone looked guilty, but only one could be the killer. Or could it be that they all killed him together? The possibilities are endless!!

I loved it and I CAN'T wait to read the others. If you're looking for a mystery, look no further. Check out her website below for her latest books. If you're looking to continue the series and for another mystery look below.
