Thomas

  • Updated

Perfect for YA readers: High school, how bad can it get? Well, blackmail, cheating, gossip, manipulation, lying, police brutality, racism and murder. The novels of Thomas, McManus and Urban take us back to those gruesome-as-only-high-school-can-be days where everything seems to be high-stakes and intensely important, but sometimes, more than feelings get hurt. One reviewer described McManus’s “One of Us Is Lying” as “‘Pretty Little Liars’ meets ‘The Breakfast Club.’” (If I remember correctly, my high school was just like that.) And talk about game-playing: Urban’s Christie-esque “All Your Twisted Secrets” brings a group of students into a deadly real-life game of Clue. And in “The Hate U Give,” Thomas makes worlds collide in her timely and honest examination of how the pressure to balance your identity as a student at a fancy prep school, your racial identity and your identity at home can turn into an intense, life-changing drama.
