Simon is the most hated person in school.
As the creator of a gossip app called "About That," he regularly posts school rumours that often expose people's mistakes or secrets.
When four students find themselves in detention for something they all deny doing, they aren't surprised to find Simon in there with them.
Then, the unthinkable happens, Simon dies in front of them and within minutes they are all suspects. Each student has a reason to want Simon dead.
Each student is holding a secret that might uncover the truth, and the creepiest thing? Simon's "About That" app continues to run after his death. Rumours and gossip continues to spread and as the police and news reporters swarm their lives, the students find themselves pushed to the breaking point.
One of Us is Lying is an addictive novel with classic "whodunit" plot points mixed in with a modern twists. Everyone is a suspect, everyone is lying to some degree. As the students' secrets get exposed, the plot thickens and even they start to second guess those closest to them.
I think the twist in this novel will have students guessing to the very end. We have a large contingency of students in my library that devour mysteries and good ones are hard to come by. One of Us is Lying is one of the good ones, check it out!
