One of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus is a really fun high school based mystery. The story revolves around five students at Bayview High. Bronwyn, Nate, Cooper, Addy, and Simon walk into detention. Only four of them come out alive. Simon’s death isn't an accident, and the other four all have a motive and an opportunity to perform the murder. This is a great whodunnit mystery that is impossible to put down and leaves you wanting more. Luckily for you, there is a second book called One of Us is Next. Overall, I would definitely recommend this book, and it’s the perfect read for October to get you in the Halloween mood. If you just can’t get enough of this compelling storyline, or you’re just not a book person, there is also a TV series based on this novel streaming on Peacock.
