From the Publisher
Only, Simon never makes it out of that classroom alive. And according to investigators, his death wasn’t an accident. He died on a Monday. But that Tuesday, he’d planned to post juicy reveals about all four of his high-profile classmates. Now, all four of them are suspects in his murder. Are they guilty? Or are they the perfect patsies for a killer who’s still on the loose?
They all have a motive. They all have something to hide. They all have a history with Simon. And one of them is definitely lying.
One of us is lying
The Breakfast Club meets Pretty Little Liars, One of Us Is Lying is the story of what happens when five strangers walk into detention and only four walk out alive. Everyone is a suspect, and everyone has something to hide.
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
As a kid I used to write books when I was supposed to be playing outside, and not much has changed. I'm a marketing and communications professional who also writes Young Adult contemporary and fantasy fiction in Cambridge, MA.
When not writing or working I love to travel, and along with my nine-year old son I've ridden horses in Colombia and bicycles through Paris. A member of SCBWI, I hold a bachelor’s degree in English from the College of the Holy Cross and a master’s degree in Journalism from Northeastern University. Which I have never, ever used professionally.
One of Us Is Lying is my debut novel, and I'm currently working on a second book with Delacorte Press that's scheduled to be published in 2018.

Four students; Bronwyn, Addy, Cooper and Nate are in detention. Also, there is Simon, the owner of the school gossip app that makes the lives of the students at Bayview High a living hell. When detention ends, Simon is dead, and the novel examines which of the remaining 4, if any of them, had the opportunity, means and motive to kill him.
I admit the beginning was confusing for me. Moving from character to character, each of the four written in the first person was complicated, particularly as separating which character was which was quite hard until they established themselves.
I'd figure the who out by the 50% mark of the story, but the how had me stumped right up until the end.
This book was a real roller coaster! You think you know what's going to happen and sometimes you might be right but then SLAM! WHAT???!!!
Go in cold, ride out the first couple chapters which are a little slow setting up the story. After that strap yourself in for the ride of your life!
The characters and their stories were relatable. I was rooting for each of them and holding my breath at each turn.
Overall this book was intriguing, cute, scary, loveable. I definitely recommend everyone read this book.
What a roller coaster ride! This book was an enjoyable and intriguing read with plot twists at every turn. The mystery behind who killed Simon was well written, with secret being revealed one at a time, building the suspense and leaving the reader guessing. The plot was well developed and the characters were multi dimensional; I especially enjoyed learning more about Cooper and Nate. I also really enjoyed the multiple points of view from all of the main characters which effectively helped to add more depth to the writing rather than confusing the reader, as so often happens.
Overall, this was an amazing read that was extremely enjoyable and leaves the reader guessing until the last second.
