A sex tape. A pregnancy scare. Two cheating scandals. And that's just this week's update.”

One of Us Is Lying was fun and fast-paced, and quite unpredictable when it came to the big revelation at the end. I enjoyed this story and I was rather invested in it, but yet I believe it's forgettable and pretty average. The characters were interesting enough, and I liked how the group's relationship developed throughout the book. The end was kind of disappointing, but surprising, because I had wished for something more of a Dangerous Girls ending. It wasn't as shocking as I had hoped it to be...

I'm definitely happy that I read One of Us Is Lying, even though I am a tiny bit sad that it wasn't as thrilling as I had expected. Still, it was a great debut novel, and I recommend it!

What is it about?

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.

Have you read this book? What did you think? :)
