Because one of the POV character's is Bronwyn's sister Maeve, it helps to weave the original characters through the book quite a lot. The other two new characters are classmates of Maeve's.(less)

EDIT: So, I went on a little investigation. Based on the author's Twitter we already know:

- The main character will be Maeve, Bronwyn’s sister. Plus two new MCs.

- Bronwyn, Cooper, Addy & Nate aren't POV characters, but they're very much present.

- The author also dropped a list of five things we will see in the sequel:

Guys, I've gotten pretty old and grumpy in my reading. There's just a point at which you've read so much you feel like nothing is surprising anymore. I had just put down a very blah book when I picked up this one, and thank goodness I did pick it up because it was a balm on my wounded, grouchy soul.

My absolute FAVORITE thing about Karen's books is that I know, going in, that I will be in excellent hands. I will be shocked. I will gasp. I will laugh. I will cringe and yell at the characters. I

Dare: I dare myself not go mad waiting for this (and other fantastic books) to come out in January 2020.

I was going to give this 3 stars until a final twist in the last few pages and my faith was restored. Out of all of Karen M. McManus’s books, this is probably my favourite one so far, but believe me this was a rollercoaster for me and there were many times when I didn’t know what to think or rate this book, but we got there in the end.

Look at this adorable group of imbeciles: the book doesn't even have a title or description; the estimated publication date if set for spring 2020. And it already has 20 ratings.


PS. Don't feel the need to enlighten me about ARCs, as of today--see date at the top--there are no ARCs.

Did anybody already receive an ARC?
And if yes, kindly provide me with the information about who I am supposed to sell my kidney to, so I can get one, too.

Thank you in advance.

SUCH a satisfying sequel. And I might even like this MORE? But, that might be because I read OoUIL spoiled for half of it, so this one I had the pure joy of a no spoiler reading experience. Fans of OoUIL who loved those characters and wants to see what they're up to will be happy/satisfied. Nate, Bronwyn, Addy, and Cooper make appearances. Plus, Ashton and Eli. There's more Nate/Bronwyn than anyone else from book 1, which is all I'll say :)

The POV characters are Maeve (Bronwyn's sister), Phoebe,

** Thank you so much Penguin Random House for so graciously sending me an ARC! **

To my complete surprise (not) McManus once again threw me for a loop and once again the big reveal and ending had me floored. How does she do that?? It's baffling but a the same time so impressive.

More review to come!

5/21/19: I just got a notification: "MischaS_ liked your review of One of Us Is Next (One of Us Is Lying, #2)" I screamed and went to this instantly - I'm so pumped for a sequel! Following new characters sounds like a great move here. January 2020 tho? Ugh. (Also, I don't really love the color scheme. It's very different from McManus's other two books.) But I'll probably have to reread One of Us Is Lying first. Looking forward to this!

there's no clear indication that there'll be nate in this, but i'll take my chances. im not going to be the one who says no to this just because the first book kinda sucked.

I won an ARC of this book in a giveaway Karen conducted on Twitter and I’ve been screaming ever since. I’ve always been salty about the fact that NetGalley wouldn’t allow me to request One of Us Is Lying when it first released (international problems!), so winning the sequel felt amazing!

One of Us Is Next is a thrilling, suspenseful novel about teenagers dealing with chilling problems. It has just as much intrigue and drama as the first book in the series, and is a fast-paced, don’

I just finished the ARC of this book - it was AMAZING! Loved spending time with the Bayview Four again, but truly loved getting to know Maeve so much better. As a person who survived childhood cancer twice, her storyline and characteristics felt very familiar and accurate. Karen McManus does a great job of writing teenagers as they are - not glamorizing them or making them into unattainable “goals”. Love love loooooove this book, and will definitely be buying an official copy when it comes out.

Did I just stay up until 1:30 in the morning to read this book all in one sitting? Yes, yes I did. As always Karen McManus has managed to leave me on the edge of my seat (or bed rather, as it is 1:00 in the morning) whispering ohmygod ohmygod ohmygod until the last page. Ending had me floored.
