The Breakfast Club meets Pretty Little Liars, One of Us Is Lying is the story of what happens when five strangers walk into detention and only four walk out alive. Everyone is a suspect, and everyone has something to hide. Pay close attention and you might solve this.On Thursday 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 alive. And according to investigators, his death wasn't an accident. He died on a Thursday. But that Friday, he'd planned to post juicy reveals about all four of his high-profile classmates. Now, all four of them are suspects in his murder. Are they guilty? Or are they the perfect patsies for a killer who's still on the loose? They all have a motive. They all have something to hide. They all have a history with Simon. And one of them is definitely lying.

love love love this book. i am a mystery geek, i love everything mystery from books to movies, this book as lots of cliff hangers and I totally suggest reading it, it took my a couple of weeks to read it, but once i started, i couldn't put it down. love love love this book. so definitely read it.

Fun and fast to read! Great reading for a weekend trip. A little melodramatic in parts, but that's to be expected in YA novels. Also available as an ebook or audiobook.

I came across this title when I was on Amazon looking at another book, but it looked interesting so I got in line at my library for it. I didn't know anything about it, so when I read the description in the cover jacket I chuckled to myself and thought it sounded a bit like a mash-up between The Breakfast Club and Pretty Little Liars. I've said it before and I'll say it again, the young adult genre definitely seems to be my jam and this book was no different. It kept me entertained (and guessing) the entire time. I liked how the book was written - in the first person from the four main characters' point of view. I'll be honest, maybe it's because of all the Law & Order episodes I've watched over my years, I actually had figured out the mystery before it was spelled out at the end, but I still really enjoyed it. I would give it an 8 out of 10.

This was a super great book. I highly, highly recommend reading it. The plot was very detailed and the story line was impeccable.

I really wanted to love this one. It has everything: a mystery, four different characters, deception, unreliable narrators, and coming-of-age in the worst way possible. I was very excited for it, but because of the title and a few key lines that I picked up on while reading, I figured out the ending way before it happened. From that point, I was simply reading the characters realize what I had figured out a long time ago. I wish it had been slightly less obvious, because I think it would have liked it better.

I was actually surprised how emotional this book made me. It’s got a lot going on, it isn’t just a thriller mystery.
