Welcome to Book Club! This is the first official post in my new segment where I share my book reviews! I decided that a once a month book club might be more fun than overwhelming you with 3 reviews in a row!
So here is the first Book of the Month…
A geek, a jock, a princes and a criminal…
This sounds familiar doens’t it? But no,this is NOT Breakfast Club, because this story has something more… A Murder.
5 people enter detention, but only 4 come back out. Everyone is a suspect and everybody has secrets to hide. And one of them is lying.
One of us is Lying by Karen M. McManus
The story is told from all 4 perspectives, which allows you to see how each character and their secrets develop on their own.
Everytime you think you’ve got it all figured out, another secrets reaches the surface and changes everything.
It has a mix of both predictable as unpredictable elements, like in the breakfast club. Where some of the things they say are what you would’ve expect from a jock, but then suddenly the princes reveals something you’d never see coming.
No one is a perfect as they pretend to be and every one has motives.
I read this book on the plane back home and I could not stop reading. I had to know who did it!
The story is very well-built en engaging that sometime I forgot that I’m not Bronwyn.
There is one tiny thingy that stopped me from giving 5 stars. When the plot starts to unravel it’s over before it starts. The who, what and why’s are explained so quickly I had to read it several times to really read all the details.
Did you read the book? if so, did you like it? Or do you have a suggestion for the next Book of the Month? Let me know in the comments!

To finish this of I’m going to end with a slightly altered quoted from The Breakfast Club:
“You see us as we want you to see us. In the simplest ways. The most convenient definitions. But what you found out is that each of us is a geek, a jock, a princes and a criminal.
Does that answer your question?
Sincerly yours, The Murder Club”
