A review by aligmich
One of Us is Lying, by Karen M. McManus

dark emotional mysterious tense fast-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? A mix
  • Strong character development? It's complicated
  • Loveable characters? Yes
  • Diverse cast of characters? Yes
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? Yes


Did this cross every box from my YA checklist? Yes. Did I guess the true outcome of the mystery about ⅓ of the way through? Yes. Did I still really enjoy it? Also yes. This is why I like to read YA - even when it is a bit predictable and cliche, it still manages to pull me in and have me flicking from one page to the next. Highly enjoyable! I’m looking forward to the sequel.
