I loved this book! Four different characters tell the story of a classmate's death during afternoon detention. These same four characters are the prime suspects in their classmate's murder. The story follows the kids as they try to find out who killed their fellow student.

I can definitely say that this book was interesting and mysterious. It had four different perspectives from different people and that just made this book even better. It was also full off twists and i can definitely say that that just made you want to keep readings.

This book made me question everything. It was one of those books that you get so sucked into, that you forget where you are.

One Of Us Is Lying is a modern mystery novel about four teenagers (Bronwyn, Addy, Nate and Cooper) who witnessed the death of their acquaintance Simon Kelleher, known as "The Outcast", while in detention. These teenagers play an important role in Simon's mysterious death-- they were in the same room as him when he had an allergic reaction and died shortly after, and they may be some of the only people (alive) who can figure out what really happened to him.

The concept of this was fantastic. I guessed the killer pretty early on but there were still some twists that surprised me. I really liked the story overall but there was way too much fluff added. Even the ending had a lot of unnecessary blubber. If it weren't for all the boring extras added in to make the book longer, I probably would have given this a 5 star review. Karen McManus is a very talented author. I appreciated the cleverness of this book.

A great modern YA murder mystery. 5 students walk into detention and only 4 leave. Someone's lying. Who is it?
