The Breakfast Club meets Pretty Little LiarsOne 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 Monday 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. Before the end of detention, Simon's dead. And according to investigators, his death wasn't an accident. On Monday, he died. But on Tuesday, he'd planned to post juicy reveals about all four of his high-profile classmates, which makes all four of them suspects in his murder. Or are they the perfect patsies for a killer who's still on the loose? 

Everyone has secrets, right? What really matters is how far you would go to protect them."

With how this book turned out I'm surprised I'm not hearing much people talk about this book. It was so interesting. I loved that there was enough mystery to suspect people. I loved that there was enough clues given over time to come up with a different motive and different suspected. I loved that I was able to get the perspectives of the four characters without it being too confusing or overwhelming. When it comes to multi pov I tend to find myself lost in the confusion but when it came to this book each character had their own distinct personality that I didn't have a hard time getting used to their own voices. I loved that ending and how it turned out and I totally was thrown off and wasn't expecting it. Overall it was such a fun read, and like it mentioning in the description it does have like a PPL (Pretty Little Liars) vibe going on so I think if you like PPL you will like this book.
