Back in 2017, Karen M. McManus made a huge splash on the YA scene with her mystery thriller One of Us Is Lying.
Branded as The Breakfast Club meets Pretty Little Liars, the novel follows five teens who walk into detention… and the four who walk out murder suspects after the fifth dies. Bronwyn, Addy, Nate, and Cooper all have reasons to want Simon dead, but which one actually did it and why?
Now, McManus is following up on the book’s huge success with One of Us Is Next, which “takes readers back to Bayview High a year after Simon’s death, and no one’s been able to satisfy the gossip hunger quite like he could. That changes when someone starts playing a lethal game of Truth or Dare—where choosing the truth may reveal your darkest secrets, and accepting the dare can lead to danger and even death. Simon may be gone, but someone’s determined to keep his legacy alive—at any cost,” according to the official press release.
The book promises a look into what’s happened to the Bayview Four since the previous book, plus some new characters to enjoy.
