One of Us is Lying

A Geek, a Jock, a Criminal, a Princess, a Murder. Who would you believe?

(4)
Five students go to detention. Only four leave alive. For fans of Gossip Girl and Pretty Little Liars, this is the perfect high school thriller. Yale hopeful Bronwyn has never publicly broken a rule. Sports star Cooper only knows what he's doing in the baseball diamond. Bad body Nate is one misstep away from a life of crime. Prom queen Addy is holding together the cracks in her perfect life. And outsider Simon, creator of the notorious gossip app at Bayview High, won't ever talk about any of them again. He dies 24 hours before he could post their deepest secrets online. Investigators conclude it's no accident. All of them are suspects. Everyone has secrets, right? What really matters is how far you'll go to protect them.

„Breakfast Club der etwas anderen Art...“

Darline Baatz, Thalia-Buchhandlung Berlin

"Wer lügt?" oder besser formuliert: "Wer war es?" - Diese und viele weitere Fragen stellt man sich, wenn man in "One of us is lying" eintaucht. Aus vier Sichten erzählt, lernt man die unterschiedlichen Charaktere und ihre Motive kennen und fiebert gespannt mit, wer sich am Ende als der Mörder entpuppt!

'The Breakfast Club' mit düsterem Twist und einem Hauch 'Veronica Mars'
Dieser Teenagerkrimi liest sich auch dann hervorragend wenn man selbst nicht mehr sweet sixteen ist.

Schöne Geschichte von ein paar Teenager in Highschool, die mit ganz alltäglichen Problemen zu tun haben, die aber in diesem Alter das ganze Leben bedeuten. Spannend und schön verwickelt. Eine leichte Lektüre. Ich habe es genossen!

Five students of Bayview High School have to go to detention for having a cell phone with them. They all swear that the mobiles do not belong to them and that they don’t have the least idea how they ended up in their backpacks. Bronwyn, the perfect student with a flawless record and surely a place at one of the Ivy League colleges; Nate, the constant loser who is currently on probation for drug dealing; Cooper, a promising baseball player; Addy, the girlfriend of one Bayview High’s most wanted boys; and Simon, on the one hand an outsider, on the other the creator and head behind the school’s gossip app who seems to know all the secrets of his class mates. Just a couple of minutes later, Simon is dead and the four remaining students are the prime suspects. Actually, all of them have something to hide as the police soon finds out and their secrets might have lead each single student to murder. They all plead innocent, but apparently one of them must be lying. I really enjoyed this combination of young adult with crime novel. Karen McManus’ four protagonists are interestingly drawn, very singular characters which – of course – show some stereotypical features but which I think is normal for their age where you try to play some role and fit in. The author plays with the reader in bit by bit revealing more about the teenagers and their individual flaws and weaknesses. I did not really expect all of them having these secrets which, in fact, are everything but harmless and could really destroy their lives – well, that’s what happens when they are a finally revealed. I liked the arc of suspense a lot. First of all, there has been a murder quite at the beginning of the story and of course you want to know who committed the crime. But then, all protagonists one after the other tell you that they have something to hide without immediately illuminating you. So apart from the search for the murderer, there is much more you want to find out and which makes you keep on reading. For me, “One of US is Lying” can easily equal novels such as Jay Ashers “Thirteen Reasons Why”, Celeste Ng’s “Everything I Never Told You” or E. Lockhart’s “We Were Liars”.
