I loved this book. Although I wasn’t able to figure out the mastermind in the first book before it was revealed, I was able to figure it out this time around. It did not make this book any less enjoyable. There were still plenty of plot twists that kept things thrilling and fresh. I think the author did a great job of keeping us updated on our four favorites from the previous book while introducing us to a new set of friends. I think Knox is my favorite with Maeve as a close second. Highly recommend!

The worst part of One of Us is Next is how quickly I finished the book. McManus truly built a captivating and amazing murder mystery that I wish went on just to satisfy my need for more. In this sequel to One of Us is Lying, high schoolers Maeve, Phoebe, and Knox deal with family issues, relationships, and problems with peers, which can be relatable to many teens out there. And on top of these conflicts, this group of friends takes on the task of finding who is responsible for the death of their classmate. I really enjoyed the very surprising plot twists that eventually led to an end that I was definitely not expecting. If the first book kept you on the edge of your seat, this book will blow you to the moon.

I couldn't manage this. Too much stupidity - hormone induced, no doubt - but no one was particularly interesting. It is easy to set a wolf among sheep and that's what these characters are - sheep. Except, I like sheep.

I felt that this book was the perfect sequel to one of us is lying. It had a great plot (a deadly truth or dare game) and definitely kept me guessing. The plot twist at the end was so unexpected that I never would have guessed it. Re-reading it, you can definitely see the truth. I also liked seeing where the bayview four ended up. It was nice seeing each of them follow their dreams. After reading this book from the library I immediately bought it and have read it around 5 times now. It has a great balance of romance and mystery, which makes a great book in my opinion. I will never get tired of reading this book and I absolutely cannot wait for Karen McManus to make another new book! I highly, highly reccomend it!

A really good sequel to One of Us is Lying. This time the game is truth or dare. Many twists and turns in this book. Liked the revisitation of characters. The ending was quite surprising as I would have never suspected that person causing hate and problems. What is next for Ms. McManus? Whatever it is, I will be reading it.
