One of us is Lying
By Karen M. McManus
Review by Lila H.
Bronwyn, Cooper, Nate, and Addy are all stereotypical high school kids. Cooper is the Jock, Addy is the pretty one, Nate is the criminal, and Bronwyn is the smart one. So it makes sense that they are confused when they all get detention for something they didn't do. But thier confusion morphs into bewilderment when Simon, the only other kid in detention, mysteriously drops dead.
This who-done-it mystery was very good. I could barely force myself to put the book down as I tried to figure who killed Simon. I loved watching how the relationship between the four teenagers develops as they try to figure it out. Even if you don't normally like mystery novels, you should read it because there is so much more than just a mystery in this book. Only if you pay the closest attention will you figure this insane mystery out.
