~Waiting on Wednesday~ One of Us Is Lying

                “Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.  Basically books that are not yet out that we are dying to get our hands on.  This week’s pick is:

One of Us Is Lying by Karen M. McManus
Out:  5/30

From Goodreads:
                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.

                One 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 the 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.

Why I’m Waiting:
                So this sounds like a murder mystery twisted version of the Breakfast Club.  Yeah that was my first thought so I’m totally going to have to check this one out.  I like the plot idea and I do love a good mystery.

                What are you waiting on?  Tell me below what you think of this title and leave a link to your WoW as well so I can check it out.


  1. This is one I'm excited for too. Somewhere I read that it was a cross between The Breakfast Club and Pretty Little Liars, which sounded amazing to me!

    My WoW

    1. I know that is the vibe I got from it as well!

  2. The only reason I want to read this is because it's being compared to The Breakfast Club. lol <3

  3. A twisted version of The Breakfast Club? Sign me up! That was one of my favorite movies as a teen. Great choice!

    1. This also makes me want to re-watch the movie right now!

  4. This is one of my most anticipated releases of the month and it's probably one of the most intriguing books I've come across in a long time. I think the fact that I've never read or heard of anything like it helps! I'm waiting for a lot of books to come out during May so, you can check my Most Anticipated Releases post @ Book Lady's Reviews! Thanks for sharing!


    1. I know I haven't read anything like it either!

  5. My daughter just read this and it's on my bed stand TBR. She loved it and rolled it into an English project she had to do. She got an A!
