News & Reviews
Pretty Little Liars meets Gossip Girl meets Thirteen Reasons Why meets The Breakfast Club in Karen M. McManus’ debut Young Adult masterpiece, One of Us Is Lying. This mystery thriller is set at Bayview High where five students are sent to detention one afternoon when contraband mobile phones are found in their bags. From there, the story takes us on a whirlwind of twists and turns, leaving us guessing until the end.
When Simon, the school’s gossip app creator and blogger, suddenly dies from anaphylaxis caused by peanut oil, it is initially ruled to be a tragic accident. However, a series of clues leads to police investigating his death as a possible homicide. The other students who were in detention with him that afternoon become caught up in the investigation. What was Simon getting ready to post on his gossip app? Did someone murder him to keep their secrets hidden?
We are introduced to the first-person perspectives of Bronwyn, a geek who dreams of getting into Yale; Addy, a beautiful homecoming princess; Nate, a former drug-dealing criminal; and Cooper, a baseball player who has been hiding a massive secret from everyone he knows.
Was Simon murdered by one of the members of the “Murder Club”? Or is their something more behind his death?
McManus has successfully created an ambitious and skilfully written high school mystery. I am looking forward to reading more of her work in the hopefully not too distant future!
"I wonder what the sound of a heart breaking might be. And I think it may be quiet, unperceptively so, and not dramatic at all. Like the sound of an exhausted swallow falling gently to earth."
More than just a love story, Tin Man is an exquisite piece of art. Sarah Winman captivates readers with a beautifully touching story of three individuals, Ellis, Michael and Annie. The book is a tender portrayal of love, friendship and loss.
The first half of the book is written in third person and tells the story of Ellis. While exploring Ellis's life, we also meet Michael. Their bond and closeness commences instantly, and never leaves either of them, even after Ellis meets Annie. In the second half of the book the writing switches to first person, and we hear Michael's very sad and detailed account of his life with and without Ellis.
A print of one of Van Gogh's paintings, Sunflowers, won in a raffle in the prologue by Ellis’s mother, features strongly throughout the book. It is a perfect metaphor for the freedom of love and the trials of grief experienced by the characters.
Tin Man gets five big shiny stars from me.
