I don’t know many writers who get an agent or book deal with their first book. Most of us need to muddle through a few attempts. So when you shelve a book, it’s not a failure. It’s a crucial developmental step. Karen M. McManus
One of Us Is Lying (Delacorte Press, 2017) by Karen M. McManus is quite the mystery!
Five students in detension, but one doesn’t come out alive. All four remaining students are under suspicion, and not just because they were in the room. But Simon, the deceased, was going to reveal secrets about all four of these classmates. But Bronwyn, Addy, Nate, and Cooper know they didn’t do it. The teacher has no motive. So who could have murdered Simon?
The book has been a New York Times Best Seller and might become a TV series! I look forward to it.
