Not my favourite from Karen M McManus. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love Karen as an author. She has incredible writing with characters that feel so real they might as well be sitting next to you as you read. One of Us is Lying is still my favourite from her and this one doesn’t even compete in comparison to that one. This one felt like it was missing the attention-grabbing details that her other books have maintained. In saying that, I did love the ending. Definitely didn’t see it coming!
If you’re a fan of this author (and YA crime in general) don’t go in with high expectations. It’s still a good book with great writing. It’s still very enjoyable, it’s just not high calibre.
