The Breakfast Club meets Pretty Little Liars, One of Us Is Lying is the story of what happens when five strangers walk into detention and only four walk out alive. Everyone is a suspect, and everyone has something to hide.

Pay close attention and you might solve this.

On Monday afternoon, five students at Bayview High walk into detention.
Bronwyn, the brain, is Yale-bound and never breaks a rule.
Addy, the beauty, is the picture-perfect homecoming princess.
Nate, the criminal, is already on probation for dealing.
Cooper, the athlete, is the all-star baseball pitcher.
And Simon, the outcast, is the creator of Bayview High's notorious gossip app.

Only, Simon never makes it out of that classroom. Before the end of detention, Simon's dead. And according to investigators, his death wasn't an accident. On Monday, he died. But on Tuesday, he'd planned to post juicy reveals about all four of his high-profile classmates, which makes all four of them suspects in his murder. Or are they the perfect patsies for a killer who's still on the loose?
Everyone has secrets, right? What really matters is how far you would go to protect them.

OMG this book! I couldn’t get enough of it.

This books makes you guess everything you thought you knew in each chapter. Once second you would think you knew exactly how everything was going down and who killed Simon and the next thing Karen through a huge curveball at you.

I actually had a joke with my boyfriend about who I think I killed Simon. Turns out I was right but in all honesty I never saw it coming. This is what got me the most.

I couldn’t put this book down when I started reading. I ended up ordering in. That’s how much I was into this book.

The thing I loved most about this books was that it was in all of the main character points of views. It just made it better. Gave me a better insight into who each character was and helped to decide which one, if any of them was the killer.

Overall, it was an amazing book.
