FROM THE #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR, KAREN McMANUS “Pretty Little Liars meets The Breakfast Club” (Entertainment Weekly) 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. And don’t miss the sequel, One of Us is Next!

Just keep reading until the twist, it's probably worth it. Or you might have guessed it.

I enjoyed the way it’s written from the perspective of the main characters, very interesting to see what is going on inside their head. But the plot itself is a bit to simple for me, the ending wasn’t hard to predict.
