New to Our Shelves: One of Us Is Lying
Five people, one detention room, all for the same reason. A cell phone was planted in their backpacks to help enrage a teacher who doesn't like cellphones in his class. The reason for this prank is a mystery. The teacher leaves the room, meanwhile, the students are asked to stay inside and wait for him to come back. The outcast, Simon, drinks a cup of water thinking nothing is wrong with it. The simple drink quickly turns into a twisted event.
As the book progresses, every other student is interrogated about that fateful day in detention. My favorite character throughout the book is Addy, because she always finds a way to get through the rough parts. She is just always an interesting character and her chapters are always the ones I looked forward to reading.
Which of Simon's friends is lying throughout the whole book? Read to find out!

I recommend this book for people who love page turners and cliff hangers. Every chapter leaves you with a question the next chapter will answer. With a rating out of five I recommend this book a FIVE.
