One of Us is Lying is a YA (Young Adult) book with an almost classic set up.

Five high school kids - the female Brainiac, the Sports Star, the "rebel" and the Nice girl - and one other - are sent to detention on what may be a phony charge. While in detention one of the boys - the unpopular unlikable one - drinks water laced with peanut oil (he's allergic) and goes into analaphaletic shock and dies. Murder? Maybe.

But it's really just the cusp event that makes the other four look at their lives and learn and maybe change and grow.

Lovely writing interesting characters. Nothing new here really, but a tale well told and hurrah for that. Perhaps a tad too long but what would you cut? I dunno.

Enjoyed it.

I enjoyed reading this until the very end, which I thought was a little underwhelming. ( )

- As vezes me confundia a mudança de narrador, porque era tudo na primeira pessoa
- Pequenos detalhes bem ligados, achei chique
- O "suspense" em si não é nada de mais, mas é bem construído
- Suspeitei o que tinha acontecido logo depois da metade do livro
- O romance achei fofin
- Leitura levinha e rápida ( )

Eh, it was ok. But I guessed the end and wasn't impressed.

And spoilers, annoying that the title is technically a lie and gross to see suicide used as a revenge tactic. ( )

It all starts with detention. Five students at Bayview High whose social circles don't usually all overlap find themselves cooped up together. Soon, one of them ends up dead, killed by a peanut allergy after drinking water from a peanut oil-tainted paper cup. One of them is almost certainly the killer, but which one is it?

The story is told from alternating POVs. There's Bronwyn, a perfect student who's destined to get into an Ivy League school. There's Addy, the pretty girlfriend of Jake, the captain of the football team. There's Cooper, a rising star baseball player. And there's Nate, a detention regular who's already on probation for dealing. Simon, the victim, ran a gossip blog and knew secrets about each of them that he'd been preparing to expose to the world. Could someone have killed him in order to protect themselves?

I'm drawn to YA mysteries and thrillers, and this is one I've wanted to read for some time. Although it took me longer to get through than I expected (I'm not much of an e-book reader anymore), I liked it overall.

With one big exception, the characters weren't as compelling as they could have been. The publisher's description presents them all as stereotypes: the brain, the beauty, the criminal, the athlete, and the outcast. They all had more to them than those labels might imply, but the only one that really grew on me was Addy. It surprised me, because she was initially one of my least favorite characters. Her entire life revolved around her boyfriend, to the point that she even wore her hair the way he preferred. It was a joy to watch her grow and figure out what she wanted to do.

The mystery was okay and kept me interested. The solution was messed up, but made sense considering the way it was framed.

I was wondering how McManus managed to continue this since this book wrapped things up pretty well, but it looks like the next book stars all-new characters. I may give it a shot.

Extras:

The author includes contact information for those who might need help with some of the various serious topics that the book touches upon, such as substance abuse and depression.

It’s a murder mystery, Breakfast Club–style: five students from different social spheres walk into detention. Only four walk out. Simon, the outcast at the helm of the high school’s brutal (and always true) gossip app has been murdered, and he had dirt on all four students in detention with him. Brainy good-girl Bronwyn knows she didn’t kill Simon, and she doesn’t think drug-dealing Nate, everyone’s favorite suspect, did either. Simon knew something that could ruin homecoming princess Addy’s perfect relationship, but Addy’s always been so timid. And baseball superstar Cooper has a secret, but it’s not what Simon said, and everyone knows Simon was never wrong. Trailed by suspicion, the four team up to clear their names—and find the real ­killer—even as proving their innocence becomes increasingly more difficult. Told in alternating perspectives among the four, this is a fast-paced thriller with twists that might surprise even the most hardened mystery reader. An engaging, enticing look at the pressures of high school and the things that cause a person to lose control.
 
This fun, engrossing murder mystery will keep readers guessing until the end. The mystery has many twists and turns, plus romance, social drama, and bullying of all types (verbal, physical, and online).
