IRJE One of us is lying

The book, One of us, from Karen McManus is about a highschool with expecially much drama and an app to update the entire school about the news. One day in detention a student collapses and later dies in the hospital, the 4 teenagers who were in the school simultaneously are all suspects. The fact that every single one of them has something to hide makes every one suspicious.

A sex tape. A pregnancy scare. Two cheating scandals. And that’s just this weeks update. If all you knew of Bayview high was Simon kellerhers gossip app, you would wonder how anyone found time to go to class.

This is the firs sentence of the book, and it perfectly sets the scene to get into. Not only does it provide the first hint of a lot of drama, it also lays the foundation, for me at least, of a high school atmosphere.
