One of Us Is Lying by Karen M. McManus

One Of Us Is Lying is a multi-perspective book about five teenagers who entered detention one day, and only four made it out alive. The book follows each character as their secrets are revealed.

I was super excited to read this book and at the end of it, felt kind of disappointed. It was an enjoyable read and I liked learning about the characters, but there was no surprise element in it for me as I had already guessed the 'killer' in the story fairly early on. However, this didn't change my enjoyment whilst reading this book, it simply felt a bit obvious to me. I liked how McManus chose to write the story from each characters perspective and I had doubt in my mind about each and every one due to the secrets they were keeping. If you're into YA thrillers and are fairly new to the genre, this book is a great one to try.
