One of Us Is Next, Karen M. McManus (2020)

Plot: Welcome back to Bayview High. It’s been a year since the events of One Of Us Is Lying. But nothing has settled for the residents of Bayview. Not now someone has started playing a sinister game of Truth or Dare.

Choose truth? You must reveal your darkest secret.
Choose dare? Well, that could be even more dangerous. Even deadly.

When the game takes an even darker turn, suddenly no one at Bayview High knows who to trust. But they need to find out who is behind the game, before it’s too late.

Opinion: If you were on the edge of your seat with One Of Us Is Lying then you will be jumping out of your seat with the sequel!

Brilliantly creative, keeping a handful of the original characters with an updated one year on twist, this book is gripping and exciting.

The character of Maeve is once again front and centre of all the action closely followed by everyone’s favourite Nate Macauley. It kept me guessing till nearly the end!
