My Goodreads review: 

“Wowwwwwwwww. I LOVED this book so much. Definitely my favorite Karen M. McManus book yet, and also definitely the best book I’ve read this year so far.

I loved basically everything about this story. The characters are probably my favorite aspect—I love every single one of them. I loved One of Us is Lying too, but this book just elevated the complexity of the characters and their rough, emotional situations.

This was also super addicting, but the complexity of the story made this feel like a really intricate read at the same time. It wasn’t some mindless fast-paced story—it was just that good that I couldn’t put the book down.

Overall, if I had any negative thing to say about the story it would be that I didn’t love the mystery itself as much as I could’ve, but that didn’t even matter because everything else was so well done.

READ THIS GUYS…seriously
