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.

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!
(My one complaint is the red edging of the pages. I don't appreciate it, though I'm sure others do!)
A few characters to deal with which I don't generally like but I caught on quickly. Well written and kept me wanting more.
It was a late night finish as I couldn't put it down with just a little bit left to go.
