Blodeuedd's Monday Review: One of Us Is Next by Karen M. McManus

Series: One of Us Is Lying (#2)

375 pages, Paperback

Published: January 7, 2020 by Penguin

YA Fiction mystery


I did not feel this one was as strong as the first. I felt too adult this time around. Like omg, last time someone killed himself and then framed people for his murder. So when it starts again 1 year later then maybe talk to the cops, or teachers, or parents. Instead some are all fun! And some are all, not playing! Well, someone dies and I blame everyone in this HS. Stupid kids.

Ok, so missed the character change even though their name is on top. The characters were not as strong as in book 1. Maeve who went all detective should have been as cool.

How did this person find all secrets in the end?

Eh, not much to say, I know I am all negative, but it was still good, fast and easy. Just, stupid teens. Everyone deserve to be in jail

It is a year after the action of One of Us Is Lying, and someone has started playing a game of Truth or Dare.

But this is no ordinary Truth or Dare. This game is lethal. Choosing the truth may reveal your darkest secrets, accepting the dare could be dangerous, even deadly.

The teenagers of Bayview must work together once again to find the culprit, before it's too late . . .

What a shame the follow up story was lame compared to the first.
