One of Us is Lying
by Karen McManus

Monday afternoon detention at Bayview high goes from deadly boring to just plain deadly when one of the teens doesn't make it out alive.  The group includes Bronwyn, the braniac, Addy, the homecoming queen, Nate, the budding criminal and Cooper, the star athlete, The final student, Simon, stands out for a different reason: his gossip app that seemingly exposes everyone's secrets.  But when his talents for tattling gets Simon killed, the biggest story is yet to be told; which one of his classmates murdered him?  While a closer examination reveals that none of the remaining four students are exactly what they appear to be, will the identity of the killer be revealed before they strike again?

This book is the perfect combination of chilling murder mystery and unflinching examination of the all too regular horrors of the high school experience.
