Can’t Wait Wednesday – YOU’LL BE THE DEATH OF ME by Karen McManus
“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about. It is a meme that I have loved participating in since I first started blogging, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is You’ll Be The Death of Me by Karen McManus. McManus is one of my favorite authors when it comes to YA thrillers. She just gets it right every time, so I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy of her latest.
YOU’LL BE THE DEATH OF ME by Karen McManus
Publication Date: November 30, 2021 by Delacorte Press
From the author of One of Us Is Lying comes a brand-new pulse-pounding thriller. It’s Ferris Bueller’s Day Off with murder when three old friends relive an epic ditch day, and it goes horribly–and fatally–wrong.
Ivy, Mateo, and Cal used to be close. Now all they have in common is Carlton High and the beginning of a very bad day.
Type A Ivy lost a student council election to the class clown, and now she has to face the school, humiliated. Heartthrob Mateo is burned out–he’s been working two jobs since his family’s business failed. And outsider Cal just got stood up . . . again.
So when Cal pulls into campus late for class and runs into Ivy and Mateo, it seems like the perfect opportunity to turn a bad day around. They’ll ditch and go into the city. Just the three of them, like old times. Except they’ve barely left the parking lot before they run out of things to say . . .
. . . until they spot another Carlton High student skipping school–and follow him to the scene of his own murder. In one chance move, their day turns from dull to deadly. And it’s about to get worse.
It turns out Ivy, Mateo, and Cal still have some things in common. They all have a connection to the dead kid. And they’re all hiding something.
Now they’re all wondering–could it be that their chance reconnection wasn’t by chance after all?

I haven’t read any of her books but every time I hear about one I am always tempted. I will have to give her books a try one of these days. This one sounds good! I hope you enjoy it!

Thank you! 🙂
that sounds like it would be a fun read although I don’t usually like mysteries, especial murder ones as I’m not good with violent bit sin books, too squeamish, haha!
Hope you are having a good weekend 🙂 It’s another chilly winter day here, but we still spent a little time at the playground this morning 🙂

I don’t do too well with violence in books either. Thankfully it’s usually not too graphic in McManus’ books since she writes YA.
I’m going to have to give this a try!
