Summary: Pay close attention and you might solve this.
On Monday afternoon, five students at Bayview High walk into detention.
Bronwyn, the brain, is Yale-bound and never breaks a rule.
Addy, the beauty, is the picture-perfect homecoming princess.
Nate, the criminal, is already on probation for dealing.
Cooper, the athlete, is the all-star baseball pitcher.
And Simon, the outcast, is the creator of Bayview High’s notorious gossip app.

Only, Simon never makes it out of that classroom. Before the end of detention Simon’s dead. And according to investigators, his death wasn’t an accident. On Monday, he died. But on Tuesday, he’d planned to post juicy reveals about all four of his high-profile classmates, which makes all four of them suspects in his murder. Or are they the perfect patsies for a killer who’s still on the loose?

Everyone has secrets, right? What really matters is how far you would go to protect them.

All The Exciting Bonus Content

We can’t lie, we’re suckers for bonus content! When we find a book we love, we want all the content we can get. It’s so easy to immerse yourself back into a series or bookish world with small snippets here and there. That’s one of the reasons why we’re so excited about this paperback edition. Included in this new format is a book club discussion guide which we are definitely going to use when we recommend this book to our book clubs. Even if you’re reading the book on your own, the questions give you an opportunity to think critically about the book and what you enjoy about it. We’ve also got an interview with Karen M. McManus where she talks all about the book, including deleted scenes and her inspiration for the story itself. Plus there are excerpts for book 2, One of Us is Next, and the standalone Two Can Keep a Secret. We are loving all of these extras!

Get Ready For Book Three

We cannot wait to see what happens next in the One of Us is Lying series! Luckily we won’t have to wait much longer. With the third book, One of Us is Back, coming out in July, we are so close to more Bayview content. This means that now is the perfect time to reread the first two books! Get caught up on all things One of Us is Lying before diving into book three. And jog your memory by rereading the books to guarantee that you won’t miss any easter eggs or subtle details in One of Us is Back!

Who Doesn’t Love The Feel Of A Good Floppy Paperback?

This one goes without saying. We can’t get enough of a good floppy paperback! It’s perfect for convenient reading without the weight of a hardcover. Our favorite part of reading a paperback is when you get halfway through the book and it’s able to sit open on its own. Plus, it’ll look fantastic on your shelves beside all of your other Karen M. McManus books!

A Chance To Annotate

Something we’ve been really enjoying lately is annotating our books. We love highlighting our favorite quotes, tabbing exciting scenes, and writing our thoughts and feelings down. Now with the paperback edition you’ve got the perfect opportunity to reread a book you loved and write down all your feelings about it!
