Publisher's Summary

The highly anticipated sequel to the New York Times best-selling thriller everyone is talking about, One of Us Is Lying! There's a new mystery to solve at Bayview High, and there's a whole new set of rules.

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.

And don't miss Two Can Keep a Secret, Karen's third "must-read YA thriller" (Bustle)!

AMAZING from beginning to end

Loved this book because I listened to One of Us is Lying couples of days before knowing they were coming out with a sequel. Loved the book so much listened to it twice, first time was to know what happened and second time for details I missed and pure enjoyment. Really liked how the author with this book brought a whole new concept and main characters, but also incorporated the main characters from the previous books the"Bayview 4". So if anyone wanted to know what happened with their favorite Bayview 4 this book give us that information. I would definitely recommend people to listen to One of Us is Lying before listening to One of Us is Next, so you can fully understand the books contrast..Like the first book the plot twists don't disappoint...Hopefully if she does another sequel it won't be a 3 years wait.

Another edge of your seat listen!

We are back with book 2! This was a fun, thrilling read and I liked the new characters at Bayview High and their drama and secrets. We got three main characters this time, Maeve, Bronwyn's younger sister; Knox, Maeve's best friend and previous boyfriend; and Phoebe, the popular girl who works with Addy. We knew a bit about Maeve from the first book and I liked that she's a sleuth and puts pieces of the puzzle together. Phoebe has had it rough since her dad died and I felt for her family situation and was glad she had some friends to lean on. Knox was kind of this poor guy caught up in everything and I felt like he could have used more point of view time so we could get to know him a bit better.

I liked the truth or dare game and the secrets that came with it. The mystery wasn't as fun to me as the first book, but I still liked getting clues and trying to figure things out for myself. I loved that we still saw Nate and Bronwyn, they have so much chemistry that they push against each other sometimes but I love them as a couple. In general I was really happy we saw the Bayview Four again and they had involvement in the story.
The rotating points of view and storylines from reporters made this fun and kept the plot moving. I had a couple scares where I was worried for our characters and couldn't wait to finish so I could see what was going on. I highly recommend the audiobook for this one!

Very Suspenseful

It was very suspenseful. I didn't give it 5 stars because some of the plot was predictable but it was still a great story!! I love these characters! The performance was fabulous!

a bit predictable but over all a great book

Unlike the last book I had a little bit of trouble with this one I found it to be a little predictable and figured out the ending early on, however it was still a great book and I had no problem finishing it

Not anything like the first book

Don't waste your time or credit in this one! Too much back and forth. Returning this now!

Finished this one so quick

Such a great addition to the series. Another wicked, smart, and pop culture filled audiobook. I love that the author included many of the characters from the first book but also introduced us to great new characters and mix them up throughout the entire story. This author has a flair for the dramatic and continues this throughout the second book. I love a full cast production and each chosen voice is so awesome! It is interesting to see throughout the story how each narrator gives a different perspective to each character voiced. There are so many twists and turns throughout this one it will keep you guessing to the very end. I know that sounds so cliché but there was at least five times I thought I had this one figured out and a new twist had you going in a different direction. Do yourself a favour and try not to guess through the entire book and just go right until the end because it’s definitely worth the pay off! Each boys brings something to the story and it’s so great. Each tone, pause and speed up/slow down gives mor tension to the entire book. Each narrator even has to switch between male and female and adult to teen characters throughout the story and they do a fantastic job. Bayview high school is toxic, full of negativity, and shames everyone yet I want more, more, more here’s to a great first book, a stellar follow up and wishing for a third.

worst ending ever!

I am so disappointed in this book! loved book 1 in the series only to be completely let down by the ending of this book! It's like the author gave up and quit.
