The author tried to narrate the story through the four Povs but the pace is extremely slow to move the story forward and there are no intersting twists to escalate any tension.And the teenage drama and stupidity. Ughh
I gave up in the middle and I am glad.
Okay lemme get my thoughts straight. This is a FANTASTIC mystery book which I admit I was a little bored in between when things were going kinda slow for me but ohmigod. Like it all makes sense and yes my favourite ship got together after all. And I'm so happy people ended relationships in between too. Like they all got fresh starts. I saw a lot of character development and the plot was crazy. I found the idea of an app where all and literally all secrets are spilled really intriguing and creepy at the same time and this book was a joyride. Pick this book up immediately
I wish I read this sooner. Stupid me.
The plot is excellent. Each character has been given a lot of depth and you find yourself empathising with their struggles. It's also funny and spunky. Also, how cool is the title, amirite?
Reading it , was like going to this new restaurant for the first time to eat.You are nervous and you dont know if you will like the new cuisine but damn,did this book proved me wrong.
This book starts out with the outcast or Simon dying mysteriously because of a peanut oil allergy. But the way it moves towards who killed him will keep you at the edge of your seat at all times. Each and every single one of the characters is unique and so awesome this is like the perfect teen drama read and the one of the reason why you could fall madly in love with contemporary.
They really need to a make a tv show on this one , like right now !
It's about five students- Nate, Bronwyn, Addy, Cooper. And Simon- who go to detention together and come out with the loss of a life. Simon's. The four are the prime suspects and they try to escape the press while holding onto their secrets.
I'm really happy with this book for several reasons:-
1) It's a superb crime book
2) Loved the narrators
3) Almost everybody can relate to any character
4) The ship in it is very different from the ships of other books and it's totally great
5) There was some major character development in it
6) It expresses teens' feelings in a highly accurate way
7) Not only relationships were made, but also broken
8) The revelation was perfect. And scary.
Looking foraward to its sequel- One Of Us Is Next!
The way the book was written, to give a touch of investigation, was unique. The character development, Addy went through was admirable! Events unfold in such a manner, that if you have started reading the book, you can't put it down.
Even though it was the debut novel of the author, she has done a remarkable job! If you love young adult fiction, do try this!!!!!

As for the plot, if that's what we're going to call it… The real mystery is how anyone could possibly have been surprised by it. Within a few pages of Simon's death I'd considered the possibility that he'd killed himself in an attempt to punish the world, only to immediately dismiss it because it was so overwhelmingly obvious it had to be a red herring. "Ah," I thought, "here is the ludicrous possibility that the author wants us to believe is true, only to surprise us with the real killer at the end. I wonder who it could really be…"
So I put up with trite characters and their predictable secrets (the closeted athlete, the pretty girl who cheated with her boyfriend's buddy, the criminal with the unhappy homelife, the over-achiever who stole exam papers) because I wanted to know who the real murderer was. I dragged my way through this book, expecting the ending to make it worthwhile. The twist surely had to be that it was one of the four, or that it was someone peripheral to the story. Since the hype for this book couldn't be a result of its unique characters (after all, there weren't any), it had to be because the killer was that fantastic mix of surprising when you find out and yet so perfectly motivated that it's obvious in hindsight.
Nope. Turns out the motive was "I'm a melodramatic teenager and I just want to be special", and the surprise was the fact that what was so predictable it had to be a red herring was actually just so predictable.
Please, guys. Find something better to read.
Okay, so everyone had been raving about this book. A great new YA thriller that's a cross between The Breakfast Club and Pretty Little Liars. I mean come on, your sold on it already aren't you? What I loved about this one is that its only about 360 odd pages but it really packs a punch in that time. So full of twists and turns its really hard to figure out whodunnit! Admittedly though, I did work out who it was just before the reveal, but thats probably due to the sheer amount of thrillers and mystery books I've read over the years. Some of the characters are likeable while some began to grate on me a little, but overall I found them all to be very believable. A great fast-faced YA thriller. Perfect for this time of the year! 5/5 stars.
When I was reading this book, I was constantly thinking '-oh he/she did it!' or 'please let … be innocent'. Well, not just thinking it, but telling everyone else around me what was happening and what I thought was going to happen next!
Throughout the book I loved all the characters as they grew, (especially Bronwyn). They seemed to spring from the page as it was just so well-written.
Overall, I love this book and it's hard to put down!
In alternating chapters each of the four remaining students go through the aftermath of the murder. Suspicion, investigations - both formal and informal - petty, teenage dramas and love. I was pretty much gripped to this book. While the characters were stereotypes (the jock, the criminal, the scholar, the princess...) and much of the narrative is inspired cultural touchstones such as The Breakfast Club, McManus weaves twisty narratives from these pupils who each have their own traumas and issues to deal with over and above the crime for which they are all under investigation for.
