One of Us is Lying by Karen McManus

Author: Karen McManus
Original title: One of Us is Lying
Pages: 360
Edition Language: English
Series: no
Format: ebook
Genres: Mystery, YA

  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. 
My thoughts:
        Frankly, it is difficult to say anything about the book, apart from that it was predictable and not very much captivating. On the other hand it was an easy and quick read, but I did not get much from it on the enjoyment level. Forgettable characters and the mystery itself was kind of meh. Again the topic the whole mistery is based on is, I would say, "misused" and that can influence the youth not in a good way.
