One of us is lying is a young adult novel written by Karen McManus. It’s about five basic stereotype-teenagers: a geek, a jock, a criminal, a princess and an outsider. They are living average lives; they go to school, have relationships, problems and a lot of secrets. Until, one day, their world is about to change forever when one of them dies during detention. Many questions come up: Was it an accident? Is the murderer one of them? And if so, who of them is lying?
In my opinion, this book is really great. It was very packing because I couldn’t really guess who the murderer is, but I wanted to know it so badly that I wasn’t able to put the book down. I think the book is also really interesting because it describes the typical ‘highschool prejudices’ most people have.
Furthermore, the book is written out of four perspectives. Normally I do not like books with many views, but this writing style fits the book perfectly because it increases the mystery of the murder even more.
Karen McManus has created a thrilling novel about secrets, murder and prejudice, which I’d really recommend to everyone who loves twisted crime stories and mysteries in general! It was an amazing read.
