One of Us is Back- My review

The book “One of Us is Back” by Karen McManus has been published and is the grand finale of the Bayview Trilogy. This book is a total page-turner, filled with suspense, mystery, and a whole lot of character development.

The Bayview Crew is back, and they’re dealing with some serious stuff. Addy’s ex-boyfriend Jake is out of jail, and a mysterious digital billboard in town announces a new game that’s about to shake things up.

What’s really cool about this book is how it dives into the characters’ ongoing trauma and PTSD. It’s not just about the mystery—it’s about how these characters grow and change. The story switches between different characters’ points of view, which keeps things fresh and exciting.

This book is more packed with plot, fun, excitement, and horror than the rest of the previous books and is one which puts an end to all the loose ends from the past and clears up all the suspense which has been looming in the air.

If you haven’t read the first two books in the series, you might find it a bit overwhelming with all the characters and storylines. But trust me, it’s worth catching up! I would highly recommend it to Years 9 and up!
