Karen M. McManus followed her book One of Us is Lying by taking us back to Bayview in the sequel One of Us is Next. In a lot of ways, I enjoyed this book more than the first one. The mystery in the first book was better, but the sequel was a faster-paced and more enjoyable read. The author dumped all of the teen-beat stereotypes from the first novel and created more realistic and dynamic characters. I had part of the mystery figured out early enough, but in the last chapter, the book flipped the story on its head and twisted in the most unexpected way. Pure entertainment.



In this book, the reader steps outside the heads of the Bayview Five and into the heads of remaining Bayview high students who are connected to the first story in small ways. After the previous year's events, Simon copycats are emerging from the darkness, but none as powerful as Unknown. This mystery texter has started a dangerous game of truth or dare with the students- one that will reveal your darkest secrets to the world, or force you to take a dare that could end in death.

This book keeps the reader connected with the original characters from the first story, but really expands on the Bayview High community. Each chapter kept me frantically turning the page to consume more. The author's storytelling graduated this year with the Bayview Five. I'm going to have to give One of Us is Next the one extra star that the first book lost.
