"When it comes to YA suspense, Karen M. McManus is in a league of her own. Fresh off her best-selling breakout One of Us Is Lying . . . the author has returned with a juicy second novel. It's even better than what came before." --EW

The "must-read YA thriller" (Bustle) from #1 New York Times bestselling author of One of Us Is Lying!

Echo Ridge is small-town America. Ellery's never been there, but she's heard all about it. Her aunt went missing there at age seventeen. And only five years ago, a homecoming queen put the town on the map when she was killed. Now Ellery has to move there to live with a grandmother she barely knows.

The town is picture-perfect, but it's hiding secrets. And before school even begins for Ellery, someone has declared open season on homecoming, promising to make it as dangerous as it was five years ago. Then, almost as if to prove it, another girl goes missing.

Ellery knows all about secrets. Her mother has them; her grandmother does too. And the longer she's in Echo Ridge, the clearer it becomes that everyone there is hiding something. The thing is, secrets are dangerous--and most people aren't good at keeping them. Which is why in Echo Ridge, it's safest to keep your secrets to yourself.

  • Great book

    By grl hayyy
    I loved this book, it was so suspenseful and had me completely hooked. I also loved how there was a little bit of romance but it didn’t overtake the whole story. The reason I gave it a four was because I think the author could’ve done a better job with a more consistent plot buildup. It kind of felt like there were a couple climaxes rather than a very bold singular one. Overall though, great book! I couldn’t put it down:)
  • Perfect♥️♥️

    This book is the best book I have ever read, and that’s saying a lot. This book has 328 pages and I finished the entire book in 3 days☺️☺️ The ending was amazing. I’m not lying when I say this but when I finished the book I wanted to cry because I didn’t want it to be over, but I was also excited to check out more books by the author. Because this was the first book I have read by this author. But this book is freaking amazing and PERFECT🤗😌😌😌 I recommend this book with all my heart and if you do get it I dare you to not finish it in a day. 10 out of 10 from me and I know you will say the same!!😊😊😊

    Both this book and “One of us is lying” are books that were very hard to put down. They are the style of books that are easy reads but keep your interest going. I really enjoyed her books!
