One of Us is Lying by Karen McManus


Four students are falsely placed in detention. Within minutes, the school gossip is poisoned and dies in front of them. As the police look through suspects, they find a Tumblr post queued for the next day, exposing all four students’ deepest secrets--or potential motives. Friendships are on high strain, no one confesses, and one of them is lying…

One of Us is Lying is non-stop thriller told through four teens’ eyes, all with relatable stories. I couldn’t put it down. After years of rereading it, it holds a special place in my heart. I would highly recommend it for YA (Young Adult) readers and high school students. This novel is available in book format, audio, and on Overdrive in the Metro Library Network.

5/5 stars!
