Come on, Bayview, you know you've missed this.

A ton of copycat gossip apps have popped up since Simon died, but in the year since the Bayview four were cleared of his shocking death, no one's been able to fill the gossip void quite like he could. The problem is no one has the facts.

Until now.

This time it's not an app, though—it's a game.

Truth or Dare.

Phoebe's the first target. If you choose not to play, it's a truth. And hers is dark.

Then comes Maeve and she should know better—always choose the dare.

But by the time Knox is about to be tagged, things have gotten dangerous. The dares have become deadly, and if Maeve learned anything from Bronwyn last year, it's that they can't count on the police for help. Or protection.

Simon's gone, but someone's determined to keep his legacy at Bayview High alive. And this time, there's a whole new set of rules. 

Haunting. Thrilling.

I’m in love. This is just the type of books that I love. I discovered KAREN M.MCMANUS last year when I came across ONE OF US IS LYING which I ended up re-reading again this year before reading ONE OF US IS NEXT and I was not disappointed. I am not sure that I can describe my emotions while reading this book, there were a lot of them. There were a lot emotions going through each of the characters and I found myself feeling them all as well. Like the first book, ONE OF US IS NEXT is filled with unexpected twist that will keep you reading late into night. It happened to me few times while reading it, I could not pull myself away from the story. I loved all of the characters but my favorite was Maeve, I actually liked her since she appeared in first book and was happy that she was featured in this one. When I thought that she got sick again, I was scared and found myself hoping that it was not the case. I went through all the emotions that she went through during that time. It is hard not to like Maeve, she is type of character that I would love for a friend.

ONE OF US IS NEXT is a book that is hard not to be engaged in. The author gets you engaged in each of characters stories, causing you to bond with them, relate to them. From the moment that the game started, I was curious who it was, if it was one of them or someone at school and how they knew so much? The more the book progressed, the more intense the story got and by then it was impossible to pull myself away. I had a feeling that there was something off about Emma, just the way she was acting. But even I never imagined the real reason that she started drinking that much. That is one of my favorite things about KAREN M. MCMANUS is that she always keeps you on edge of your seat and just when you think that you have it figured out, another twists comes your way. ONE OF US IS NEXT is a book that will stay with you, a story that you will find yourself recommending to your friends. A book that will have you thinking about what happens to the characters after. It is extraordinary.

ONE OF US IS NEXT is the second book that I read by the author, and already she has become one of my favorites. I love her writing style, her characters and way she keeps you involved in story and the characters. I feel like this book, this series deserves more than five stars. I would highly recommend this book, a must read. I cannot wait to see what KAREN M.MCMANUS has in store for us next.
