Description

A sharp psychological thriller that's just right for fans of Pretty Little Liars - this story will seduce, mislead, and, finally, betray you.

Kay Donovan has skeletons in her closet, but who doesn't? The past is the past, and now Kay's a star soccer player whose group of gorgeous, pedigreed friends run their private school with effortless popularity and acerbic wit. But when a girl's body is found in the lake, Kay's carefully constructed life begins to topple. The dead girl has left a memento, a computer-coded scavenger hunt, which, as it unravels, begins to implicate each of Kay's friends, until Kay herself is in the crosshairs of the murder investigation. At this school, no one is quite what they seem...even Kay.

Debut author Dana Mele has written a taut, sophisticated suspense novel that listeners will tear through and not stop talking about.

I wouldn’t recommend.

So here’s the thing, the book wasn’t bad it was just more so boring. Through out the book the main character, Kay, is convinced that it is one person and then it’s not, of course. The book also doesn’t give you all the information of what happened the night of the murder until the end of the book, sometimes I like that but the only reason the author did it was so that you couldn’t guess who the murder was. I also didn’t like the main character I know that in some books you are supposed to hate them but I don’t think that was the case for this one. Kay let herself get manipulated easily and was just overall stupid.
Now again I don’t hate this book, but because of the reasons above I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone. That said if you haven’t read a lot of murder books this one would be okay to you. In my opinion the reviews I read where very misleading. (P.S. there’s nothing but kissing, I saw a review which said otherwise)

Couldn't stop listening

What did you love best about People Like Us?

It didn't end how I assumed it would, which shocked me the most, I think. With most YA "who-dun-it's" you can figure it out before the end. Not so for this one for me, which I really appreciated.

What other book might you compare People Like Us to and why?

"One of Us Is Lying" by Karen M. McManus is very similar, in good ways! Definitely pick that one up, too, if you liked this one.

Have you listened to any of Erin Spencer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

(slight spoiler? maybe?) The fact that everyone willingly turned against Kay almost immediately reminded me of some of my own high school experiences. In high school, everyone loves an easy target to hate. And anyone can become that target, even if they weren't the worst bully, and it can happen instantly. Ten years ago, I had something similar happen (without murder, of course) when I was 17 and in high school, so it hit me a little hard and made me super relieved to be out of high school.

Any additional comments?

It's an engaging listen. It's definitely one that makes you not want to put it down and to keep listening. I finished it in one sitting, partly due to fibromyalgia pain but mostly because I had to know how it ended! It totally surprised me by the ending, which was nice.

I really liked it!

I'm not usually a YA reader, but I listened to this during a business trip recently and looked forward to turning it back on every time I had to shut it off. I thought I could predict the end, and I sort of did, but then it took a real unexpected turn that I never saw coming.

Loved this book

Kept me wondering the whole book “who is the killer” and then when they are revealed, it still kept me reading

Gripping right till the end

Brilliant story, but the narrator was a little monotonous in her reading. Couldn't always distinguish between dialogue and 1st person narration. Nevertheless it was thoroughly enjoyable and full of suspense.

Liked it

It was very enjoyable. I was unfortunately able to predict what happened halfway through the book, but it was still very entertaining. Really liked the narrator, she kinda sounds like Shay Mitchell from Pll.

Boring, annoying characters

I honestly couldn’t get past how much I hate the main character. She’s annoying, self centered, etc. and I can’t understand why everyone wants to make out with her. I had to listen at double speed just to get it over with. The whole story about her brother was the absolute worst. The other girls aren’t any better than K, especially Bre. The mystery is barely even a part of the story it’s all about K, her brother and messed up family, and all her shitty high school relationships. I usually love trashy high school mysteries but this was the worst. Wish I could get my credit back.

this book

is a cross between Pretty Little Liars and Mean Girls.
It’s a thrilling story of Who Done It and leaves you guessing until the very end.

Mean Girls meet 13 Reasons

Kay is high on the social influence scale at her prestigious girls academy. That is until she becomes the top suspect for the murder of a fellow classmate. Desperate to avoid a shady past, thing just keep getting worse for me as she struggles to unearth the real killer.

Interesting story full of unique characters and just enough suspense to keep the reader going. At times, revelations about Kay appear forced and sloppy in terms of plotting. But such moments are forgivable.
