First Line Fridays is hosted over at Hoarding Books where you give the first line of a book. Friday 56 is hosted over at Freda’s Voice where you turn to page (or location) 56 and choose a passage to share. Book Blogger Hop is hosted over at Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer where you answer a different prompt each week.
I use the same book for the first line and Friday 56 and then reveal the cover and what it’s about below. The prompt will be answered at the bottom of the page.
A sex Tape. A pregnancy scare. Two cheating scandals. And that’s just this week’s update.
I have no idea what to do next as he shrugs off his jacket and tosses it over a kitchen chair. How am I supposed to… entertain Nate Macauley? It’s not even my responsibility, right? He’s the one who showed up out of the blue. I should do what I normally do. Except that’s sit in my sister’s room and watch retro vampire shows while half reading Ulysses.
What’s the book?
One of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus
Pay close attention and you might solve this.
On Monday afternoon, five students at Bayview High walk into detention.
Bronwyn, the brain, is Yale-bound and never breaks a rule.
Addy, the beauty, is the picture-perfect homecoming princess.
Nate, the criminal, is already on probation for dealing.
Cooper, the athlete, is the all-star baseball pitcher.
And Simon, the outcast, is the creator of Bayview High’s notorious gossip app.
Only, Simon never makes it out of that classroom. Before the end of detention, Simon’s dead. And according to investigators, his death wasn’t an accident. On Monday, he died. But on Tuesday, he’d planned to post juicy reveals about all four of his high-profile classmates, which makes all four of them suspects in his murder. Or are they the perfect patsies for a killer who’s still on the loose?
Everyone has secrets, right? What really matters is how far you would go to protect them.

Prompt: Do you own an e-reader? If so, what is your favorite thing about it?
-I do not. I read ebooks through the Kindle app on my phone or tablet. I wanted a Kindle when they first came out, but I didn’t see the sense in paying so much for something that had no use other than to read books, especially since at the time, I hated reading ebooks. I’m thankful I didn’t spend money on one now, as I still don’t read many ebooks.
