One of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus | Book Review + Questions

Updated: Oct 25, 2023

Hey, you! 🔖

One of Us is Lying by Karen McManus was on my TBR shelf for some time, but when I saw that the series was coming out on Netflix, I just knew it was time to get down and dirty. 😜

Five high school students walk into detention, but only 4 make it out alive.

Soooo, what happened? Who killed Simon and why? The possibilities are endless!

One of Us is Lying is a mix of The Breakfast Club x Elite and oddly enough, there was something very addictive about this book. Each main character was distinctly different and I quite enjoyed the character development. It's not the most complex murder mystery, but I still found it thrilling and .... fun!
