Book Review: One of Us is Lying

One of Us Is Lying

One of Us Is Lying by Karen M. McManus

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Frankly in Love came close, but this is a YA book that really lived up to all the hype.

The Breakfast Club was obviously the inspiration for this novel, but this book isn’t a straight copy of it. Sure the five main characters are American Teen Cliches, but they are strongly drawn identities. Others have said they managed to guess the twist easily – I’ve been sick (excuses, excuses!) but I didn’t see it coming and I didn’t guess the solution either. I could only put the book down when I needed a nap.

Also a great road map on the perils and benefits of social media. My only quibble would be that there are too many happy endings!…
