One of Us Is Lying by Karen M. McManus
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
My 10 yo is a total bookworm (like me) and he picked up a book at the school library he loves so much he came home raving about it. So I bought the book and read it, and you guys, it is perfection. One Of Us Is Lying is YA, but so much more.
The book hooked me from the beginning. Five teenagers in detention and only 4 of them make it out alive. Is one of them responsible for murder?
A truly wonderfully written murder mystery with some of the best characterization I’ve read in a very long time. I hear there’s a sequel coming out and I can’t wait. Neither can my son.
