"One Of Us Is Lying" By Karen M. McManus : Book Review By Nishat Ahmed

OVERVIEW: 5 students walk into detention, but only 4 of them walk out. A jock, a princess, a bad boy, a nerd - who’s to blame for the death of Simon? 

REVIEW: This is actually the best book I’ve read in a very long time. It’s The Breakfast Club meets Pretty Little Liars. High school drama with suspense, murder and suspicion. From the very first page, you’re drawn into the plays of high school. The social hierarchy.

 Simon dies due to an allergic reaction to peanuts - peanut oil was found on his cup of water. But who knew about his allergic reaction? And who had motive? It seems at first everyone has a motive as everyone has a secret, they’d do anything to stay hidden. There’s always secrets that should stay hidden and someone didn’t want theirs to be discovered. And the shocker is, it’s someone who yes had motive, but someone you’d not even expect. Someone that wasn’t even in the detention room with Simon.

"Noughts & Crosses" Series By Malorie Blackman : Book Review By April Grace
