Book Overview

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.

   Creepy mystery!
It's great to be back home, said Blair. Thanks to NetGalley and Delacorte Press for the opportunity to read and review Two Can Keep a Secret by Karen McManus. Their Nana is recovering from surgery and they are staying at her home while their mother is in rehab. They've known about their aunt Sarah's disappearance for a long time and when they get to Echo Ridge, they get more than they bargained for. Another young woman went missing five years ago, and now new threats are popping up right before a new teen comes up missing. The story becomes ominous and becomes suspenseful when danger becomes real. A great deal of fun, said Blair, and the book was "five stars." All opinions and thoughts are my own.
   Good ending
Suspenseful stuff. Thanks for the tip. I think he kept me on the edge of my seat, he said. McManus' widow, Karen, said she was "100 percent behind" her husband's work. Loved how they revealed what he said in the last sentence, Graham said.
Two kids from Michigan are winning a lottery lot of money: Karen McManus and Nicholas Hindley. I couldn't put it down. This is a great book, but I must admit I was zoned out at one point in the book. They also want to know if CBS would consider replacing WBAL with a local station.
   Awesome Book!
The plot really got me, and by using Malcom's and Ellery's point of view it really upped the quality of the book, he said. Thanks again for another great read, Karen McManus.

Definitely recommend.
   To YA for my taste with adult content....
It's just that I'm not a big fan of the book. This writer was too YA for my taste with a touch of TOO adult content for a 14 year old reader. The reason I gave this book two stars is because of the author's introduction and development. I would not say it's a terrible book, but I would describe it as a simple writing. In fact, I would say that nothing in this book rises to anything to deserve a recommendation. The whole 10 decade long murder mystery, murder suspect and all the other tangled mess the author tried to get the readers attention with was lacking in the book's closure. If the author had not introduced these characters, this book would have been a total flop. It was just the development of these people that was totally unsatisfying, Mr. Rule told the judge. The ending was like "DONE" and the reader is like "WHAT?"
   Gripping read
Like Miranda, Ford says the stories are similar. For her second novel McManamus' story draws the reader in with small hints of the crime.
   3.5 Stars
So I went into this book with high hope because Karen is my favorite YA-Mystery writer. Overall, I enjoyed parts of this book, even if the plot was a tad convoluted. I've always liked the small town theme. It's pretty good, Mr. Booher told us. Now, I felt like this book fell a bit flat for me, because I read it so many times. The main character was an interesting addition to the CBS stable, but became a little annoying with the Junie B. Jones act. There were so many useless characters that I got confused and had to start over again, erasing all the unnecessary bits of dialogue. There were a lot of side stories to build up the mystery element, but if anything it just made the book more of a task to read. Clear your expectations and enjoy the ride, Mr. Shelby said. I am very excited to be working with such a great cast and crew again." I still have faith in Karen and I'm thrilled with the results.
