♫Don't You (Forget About Me) by Glee --A new take on an old hit…I thought there's only one song for this story, but I wanted something with a new spin, new feel and so this feels…just right.♫
An ingenious take on one of my all-time favorite movies, The Breakfast Club. Reconstructed and varied with a twisty murder plot. Each of the original players are represented from the princess all the way to basketcase…but they're changed up a quite a bit.
While listening to One of Us is Lying, I thought I had a fairly good idea of who actually killed Simon. In part, my theories were right, but ultimately, I significantly missed the mark with this one, so props to the Author.
This is a bonus as an audiobook because each of the four main characters has a separate person narrating. So, I wholeheartedly recommend Audio for this book.
