Yay! This book was awesome :) ( )

I started reading the book. I really liked the story, the pacing, and the new characters. And then I got to the ending. And I am still waiting for the heart palpitations to stop. Whether or not you read one of us is lying, you got to read this book. ( )

I'm very skeptical when it comes to sequels to very successful books. It can work, but I've made the experience more than once, that it doesn't. There are even sequels that somehow have ruined the great experience of the first book for me. For some reason though, I didn't think twice before starting this one right after finishing One Of Us Is Lying. I'm glad to say that this sequel wasn't a disaster. Like, at all! BUT it's at least half a star less good than the first one LOL.

This time, it's not an app that is causing trouble at Bayview High, a year after the events surrounding Simon's death, but a new game: Truth or Dare. Students are apparently chosen indiscriminately to play. If you refuse to choose, truth automatically applies and an embarrassing/painful truth about you will be published. It quickly becomes clear: the best thing to do is choose dare and get over it with a mostly harmless task. Until one day a "dare" is no longer so harmless and a student dies. A student who may or may not have a very clean vest. So is there someone who had reason to take revenge on him? Or was it just reckless behavior on his part?

The book takes it's sweet little time to kick into action and is not as captivating as its predecessor right from the start. But once it gets going, it gets going with some unexpected twists and turns and nailbiting scenes. The main characters of the first book only have supporting roles here but that's fine.

I really liked this sequel. It wasn't AS good but STILL good and I cared as much for the characters

The narration of the audiobook, this time in alternating chapters of three characters, was again excellent. ( )

Blog Review: https://trishadoeseverythingbutstudy2.wordpress.com/2021/01/01/my-november-in-bo...

Well, the only word that comes to mind is disappointing.

Not to say this was a bad book. Or that it didn't have a good mystery. Or even that it was exciting. Maybe this would have been better received by me had it been a standalone, or just separate from the first book.

It's just, in the first book, we had our mystery in the first two chapters. We were immediately thrust into the story, which is sometimes a no-no for me, but it was done pretty well. Here we just went on and on about our new characters, and our old characters, and what they're doing, and why they're doing it, and it was just boring. Maybe if I wasn't expecting this to be written in a similar style to the previous one, I would have liked it better, but this just wasn't working for me.

Another thing was that in the previous one, at least it was slightly believable? Yes, it was pretty implausible, but in theory it could have happened because it was pretty realistic. Here, the mystery is completely beyond you. I mentioned in my review of the last one that the mystery would have been slightly better suited to an adult novel, or at least one in which the characters themselves were adults, and it was outside of a school setting, but here it was worse. I could still have rolled with the previous one, but here it was just out of the box. Not in a good way.

Also, the first one's synopsis clearly says, quite truly, I might add: "Pay close attention and you might solve this.". That was something I liked about that one. There was a pretty good chance you'd come to the conclusion yourself. Here, the conclusion was just completely out of nowhere. There were little to no chances that you could solve it, because this was written in a completely different style, where we weren't given the chance or the resources to solve it. What I like in a mystery is that there is a possibility you could solve it. That's what keeps you engaged and on your toes, that you could solve it. That just wasn't there in this book. At least in the first one, we could guess somewhat as to who was involved. In this, the murderer turned out to be someone we have zero interactions with, and that just made it fall flat for me. I just didn't like it.

I felt Luis was pushed to be a main side character, and that was unneeded since we were shown completely different character in the first book, so he just seemed really OOC. Similarly, I liked that we were given more about the characters of the last book, but they were just hanging too much into the plot, if that makes sense?

Of the many other things that bothered me, one of the main was that Maeve kept her cancer a secret. Or at least the fact that she might have had a relapse. There is a limit to the things one should keep from family, and deadly diseases that you might be having a relapse for is above it. I just cannot get onboard with keeping a disease such as leukemia a secret. I get that she doesn't want to go through all that again, I get it, but a disease that gets progressively worse in a pretty short time is serious. Especially when it's pretty curable in the early stages, compared to what happens when you delay it. I just didn't like it. At all.

The other thing was the way this ended. The reason we ended up with such a mess in the first place, was because Brandon, a minor, didn't face any consequences for what was a very serious mistake. I get that he's a minor, I get that people can change, but zero consequences? In a mistake that cost someone's father and husband? And then he goes on to date his daughter? No shame? No guilt? No consequences?

And after all that monologue about how there should be some consequences, how none of this would have happened if there were, you literally let off another minor, who made an equally if not more stupid mistake, with no consequences?!?!?! I get the sisterly protection, I even get that maybe bringing him into courtly affairs could be avoided, and I'm glad they did, but then we should have gotten an ending, or an epilogue, where there are some consequences. Minors not going to jail because of murder performed in self defense of any variety? Good! But minors not going to jail, or facing any consequences because of something they more or less knowingly participated in? Not good.

I know there's no real way to know how guilty or how innocent a minor might be, but we should at least have gotten to see Owen realising his mistake, and atoning for it in some way.

This is actually why I postponed writing this review, I thought I would go overboard with my hate for the ending, but I guess the waiting did nothing to help with that.


Also, why are there four faces on the cover if there are only three perspectives? Who's the fourth one?

There was also this whole drawing parallels with the first book, how some character from the first one is almost the exact same character in this one. I'm not even saying I was the one drawing parallels. The book was literally drawing parallels. I kid you not.

On the whole, I definitely wouldn't say I enjoyed this by any means, but it was okay. A good book if you're looking for more of the characters from the first book, and an okay mystery. ( )
