So. If I could give this book more than just a 5 star rating, I would. This book had such a good build-up to the final reveal of who the murderer is. Boy was I wrong.

The book is a good but you can kinda figure out the plot. Overall the book is great for someone who likes mistery, crimes and solving puzzles.

(N) one of us is lying. 

I'm going to be honest: i was giving nothing to this book. Seriously, by the first chapter i only thought it would be a teen cliche and done, two or maybe three stars, and NEXT!

It looks like a cliche. It really does. Like, all the stereotypes that you see in movies are there. But in a point of the story they turn out to be kinda complex and not just the nerd, or the athlete, or the prom princess. 

And the mystery is good. Did i guessed who it was? Yes. (I am so happy i almost never can guess) But still, it is unexpected, for me at least. 

Good teen thriller. Better than i would ever expect by reading the sinopysis.

Honestly reading this just reminded me of how bad the casting for the show is and how predictable the “plot twist” is.

I've seen this book described as The Breakfast Club meets Pretty Little Liars and I have to say that is spot on. 

McManus' writing style is refreshing, and there were twists and turns that kept me guessing and changing my mind on what had happened all the way through. I was not expecting the end result, not until all the pieces were together that was for sure. 

I cannot wait to sink my teeth into her other books.
