The highly anticipated sequel to the New York Times bestselling thriller everyone is talking about, One of Us Is Lying! There's a new mystery to solve at Bayview High, and there's a whole new set of rules.
Come on, Bayview, you know you've missed this.
A ton of copycat gossip apps have popped up since Simon died, but in the year since the Bayview four were cleared of his shocking death, no one's been able to fill the gossip void quite like he could. The problem is no one has the facts.
This time it's not an app, though—it's a game.
Truth or Dare.
Phoebe's the first target. If you choose not to play, it's a truth. And hers is dark.
Then comes Maeve and she should know better—always choose the dare.
But by the time Knox is about to be tagged, things have gotten dangerous. The dares have become deadly, and if Maeve learned anything from Bronwyn last year, it's that they can't count on the police for help. Or protection.
Simon's gone, but someone's determined to keep his legacy at Bayview High alive. And this time, there's a whole new set of rules.
Reviews of The Book:
Saba Tahir *** Guys, I've gotten pretty old and grumpy in my reading. There's just a point at which you've read so much you feel like nothing is surprising anymore. I had just put down a very blah book when I picked up this one, and thank goodness I did pick it up because it was a balm on my wounded, grouchy soul.
Mary*** what the FUCK
oh my goOOOOD
i briefly, VERY briefly suspected the ending and went "naaaaah, this is too far fetched", yet heRE WE ARE
My absolute FAVORITE thing about Karen's books is that I know, going in, that I will be in excellent hands. I will be shocked. I will gasp. I will laugh. I will cringe and yell at the characters. I will not be subjected to endless exposition or meaningless conversation. Why? Because Karen is a consistently wonderful writer and ONE OF US IS NEXT is no different. Even when I thought I knew what was going on, I didn't know what was going on. The family relationships in this book are beautifully done, and the suspense is killer (lolol sorry I couldn't resist). I finished the book in a night because I NEEDED to know what would happen.
If you're a fan of Karen's other books, you'll love this. If you've never read her other books, you'll love this. She just knows how to spin a hell of a tale.
Gavin*** I was going to give this 3 stars until a final twist in the last few pages and my faith was restored. Out of all of Karen M. McManus’s books, this is probably my favourite one so far, but believe me this was a rollercoaster for me and there were many times when I didn’t know what to think or rate this book, but we got there in the end.
Suzanne*** One of Us is Next was very entertaining and once again highlights the negative ways social media can be used in our society today. I noticed a lot of reviewers talking about how this one is not as good as One of Us is Lying but I found it just as entertaining. It moves at a great place and the characters are fascinating. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this book!
