One of Us Is Next: The Sequel to One of Us Is Lying
Simon’s death casts a dark shadow over Bayview High. Now, months later, Maeve is reluctantly trying to decide on her future. Knox has an internship at the organization Until Proven, helping the founders get jobs for convicted criminals. Phoebe is a waitress at the local hangout. All three are expecting things to wind down, now that the copycats are bored with the game. However, right when they let down their guard, a new game has started, and each player has a Truth or Dare option. No response means a Truth will be revealed, and Phoebe is the first to find its bite. “Tick-tock,” says the game master, “always take the dare.” Who will be next?
This sequel to One of Us is Lying is different from the first in that this is a steady burn to the finale rather than an immediate blast. The story builds with revelations and daring tasks to a final explosion that winds down with several unexpected sparks for an unforgettable conclusion. Like the previous book, this one alternates viewpoints to build suspense. Readers will love this new installment as they get to know side characters from the first and see into the lives of familiar ones. Excellent read.
