YOUNG ADULT FICTION / Thrillers & Suspense / General
From the author of One of Us Is Lying comes a brand-new pulse-pounding thriller. It’s Ferris Bueller’s Day Off with murder when three old friends relive an epic ditch day, and it goes horribly—and fatally—wrong.

Ivy, Mateo, and Cal used to be close. Now all they have in common is Carlton High and the beginning of a very bad day. Type A Ivy lost a student council election to the class clown, and now she has to face the school, humiliated. Heartthrob Mateo is burned out from working two jobs since his family’s business failed. And outsider Cal just got stood up…again. 
 
So when the three unexpectedly run into each other, they decide to avoid their problems by ditching. Just the three of them, like old times. Except they’ve barely left the parking lot before they run out of things to say… 
 
…until they spot another Carlton High student skipping school—and follow him to the scene of his own murder. In one chance move, their day turns from dull to deadly. And it’s about to get worse. It turns out Ivy, Mateo, and Cal still have some things in common…like a connection to the dead kid. And they’re all hiding something. 
 
Could it be that their chance reconnection wasn’t by chance after all? 
 
Fans of the hit thriller that started it all can watch the secrets of the Bayview Four be revealed in the One of Us is Lying TV series now streaming on NBC’s Peacock!

Story Locale: Contemporary; Boston and the surrounding suburb of Carlton

INDUSTRY LEADER: Karen M. McManus is the industry leader in the YA mystery/thriller category, with all three of her published novels hitting the NYT bestseller list. Her latest release, One of Us is Next, was a #1 NYT bestseller and has appeared on the list for most of the year since it released in January, while her previous two books were featured for over a year each. OOUIL continues to hold its place at the top of the list.

EVERYTHING FANS LOVE: This new mystery has all the elements that readers love about Karen’s work: it’s fast paced, smart, and has multiple plot twists, and it’s told in multiple POVs. As well, this thriller signifies a return to Karen’s signature classic-movie-inspired retelling format that launched OOUIL, pulling themes from the iconic Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.

UPCOMING TELEVISION: The One of Us Is Lying television series is currently in production with NBC’s streaming service, Peacock. A pilot has been filmed and a full season ordered. More details are to come.

THE EASY PITCH: This is Ferris Bueller’s Day Off with murder.
