Friday Memes: One of Us Is Lying by Karen McManus

Happy Friday everybody!
Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City ReaderThe Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

Beginning:
A sex tape. A pregnancy scare. Two cheating scandals. And that's just this week's update. If all you knew of Bayview High was Simon Kelleher's gossip app, you'd wonder how anyone found time to got to class.
Friday 56:
"Yeah, okay." Nate gets off his bike and follows me like it's no big deal, so I try to act equally nonchalant. Maeve's leaning against the kitchen counter when we get inside, even though I'm sure she was staring out her bedroom window ten seconds ago. "Have you met my sister, Maeve?"
This week I am spotlighting One of Us Is Lying by Karen McManus which is a recent addition to my TBR pile. Here is the description from Amazon:
FROM THE #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR, KAREN McMANUS

Pretty Little Liars meets The Breakfast Club” (EW.com) in this “flat-out addictive” (RT Book Reviews) story of what happens when five strangers walk into detention and only four walk out alive.

Pay close attention and you might solve this.

On Monday afternoon, five students at Bayview High walk into detention.
   Bronwyn, the brain, is Yale-bound and never breaks a rule.
   Addy,  the beauty, is the picture-perfect homecoming princess.
   Nate, the criminal, is already on probation for dealing.
   Cooper, the athlete, is the all-star baseball pitcher.
   And Simon, the outcast, is the creator of Bayview High’s notorious gossip app.

Only, Simon never makes it out of that classroom. Before the end of detention Simon's dead. And according to investigators, his death wasn’t an accident. On Monday, he died. But on Tuesday, he’d planned to post juicy reveals about all four of his high-profile classmates, which makes all four of them suspects in his murder. Or are they the perfect patsies for a killer who’s still on the loose?

Everyone has secrets, right? What really matters is how far you would go to protect them.
