However, this detention turns out to be much more dramatic than most. Before it comes to an end, the outcast, Simon, is dead, and it turns out everyone else in the room had a pretty good motive for killing him. Can you figure out who would risk everything and turn into a brutal killer just to make sure that their secrets stay protected? There are countless clues for you to pick up on and so many plot twists you might just read the whole thing in one go!
One of Us Is Lying spent more than 130 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list. It is a YALSA Top Ten Best Fiction Book nominee, A CBC Teen Choice Book Award nominee, and A Goodreads Best Young Adult Book of the Year nominee. The sequel, One of Us Is Next, was published in January 2020.
