Description-

  • The Breakfast Club meets Pretty Little Liars, One of Us Is Lying is the story of what happens when five strangers walk into detention and only four walk out alive. Everyone is a suspect, and everyone has something to hide.

    Pay close attention and you might solve this.
    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. Before the end of detention Simon's dead. And according to investigators, his death wasn't an accident. On Monday, he died. But on Tuesday, he'd planned to post juicy reveals about all four of his high-profile classmates, which makes all four of them suspects in his murder. Or are they the perfect patsies for a killer who's still on the loose?

    Everyone has secrets, right? What really matters is how far you would go to protect them.
    Cast of Narrators:
    Kim Mai Guest - Bronwyn
    Shannon McManus - Andy
    Robbie Daymond - Nate

Excerpts-

  • From the cover

    Chapter One

    Bronwyn

    Monday, September 24, 2:55 p.m.

    A sex tape. A pregnancy scare. Two cheating scandals. And that's just this week's update. If all you knew of Bayview High was Simon Kelleher's gossip app, you'd wonder how anyone found time to go to class.

    "Old news, Bronwyn," says a voice over my shoulder. "Wait till you see tomorrow's post."

    Damn. I hate getting caught reading About That, especially by its creator. I lower my phone and slam my locker shut. "Whose lives are you ruining next, Simon?"

    Simon falls into step beside me as I move against the flow of students heading for the exit. "It's a public service," he says with a dismissive wave. "You tutor Reggie Crawley, don't you? Wouldn't you rather know he has a camera in his bedroom?"

    I don't bother answering. Me getting anywhere near the bedroom of perpetual stoner Reggie Crawley is about as likely as Simon growing a conscience.

    "Anyway, they bring it on themselves. If people didn't lie and cheat, I'd be out of business." Simon's cold blue eyes take in my lengthening strides. "Where are you rushing off to? Covering yourself in extracurricular glory?"

    I wish. As if to taunt me, an alert crosses my phone: Mathlete practice, 3 p.m., Epoch Coffee. Followed by a text from one of my teammates: Evan's here.

    Of course he is. The cute Mathlete—less of an oxymoron than you might think—seems to only ever show up when I can't.

    "Not exactly," I say. As a general rule, and especially lately, I try to give Simon as little information as possible. We push through green metal doors to the back stairwell, a dividing line between the dinginess of the original Bayview High and its bright, airy new wing. Every year more wealthy families get priced out of San Diego and come fifteen miles east to Bayview, expecting that their tax dollars will buy them a nicer school experience than popcorn ceilings and scarred linoleum.

    Simon's still on my heels when I reach Mr. Avery's lab on the third floor, and I half turn with my arms crossed. "Don't you have someplace to be?"

    "Yeah. Detention," Simon says, and waits for me to keep walking. When I grasp the knob instead, he bursts out laughing. "You're kidding me. You too? What's your crime?"

    "I'm wrongfully accused," I mutter, and yank the door open. Three other students are already seated, and I pause to take them in. Not the group I would have predicted. Except one.

    Nate Macauley tips his chair back and smirks at me. "You make a wrong turn? This is detention, not student council."

    He should know. Nate's been in trouble since fifth grade, which is right around the time we last spoke. The gossip mill tells me he's on probation with Bayview's finest for . . . something. It might be a DUI; it might be drug dealing. He's a notorious supplier, but my knowledge is purely theoretical.

    "Save the commentary." Mr. Avery checks something off on a clipboard and closes the door behind Simon. High arched windows lining the back wall send triangles of afternoon sun splashing across the floor, and faint sounds of football practice float from the field behind the parking lot below.

    I take a seat as Cooper Clay, who's palming a crumpled piece of paper like a baseball, whispers "Heads up, Addy" and tosses it toward the girl across from him. Addy Prentiss blinks, smiles uncertainly, and lets the ball drop to the floor.

    The classroom clock inches toward three, and I follow its progress with a helpless...

Reviews-

  • AudioFile Magazine Four actors deliver the alternating narratives of four high school students who are accused of murder. Narrator Kim Mai Guest reflects Bronwyn's wit as well as her humiliation when she's caught cheating. Robbie Daymond affects the outwardly careless attitude of Nate, a drug dealer, along with his hidden tenderness. Shannon McManus depicts timid Addy, who at first is cowed by a dominating boyfriend but who later reveals her true courage. With a Southern accent, MacLeod Andrews portrays Cooper, who affects nonchalance in the face of his bullying father before revealing what he's really afraid of--his own sexuality and his father's homophobia. The unity of the four narrators captures the devastation of shame and the power of overcoming wrongs. S.W. � AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine
