About the Book

Two friend groups collide when someone turns up dead over spring break in this heart-thumping YA thriller for fans of One of Us Is Lying and We Were Liars

Spring break is a vibe—until someone gets murdered

Partying with popular classmates they barely know is not what Eva and her BFFs had in mind for their spring break. But things have been off ever since Miles' academic career took a turn for the worse (they don't talk about it), so a trip to a private beach lodge might be exactly what they need. And Eva won’t admit it, but the chance to reconnect with Colton is worth putting up with Piper’s constant livestreams to her thousands of “besties.”

At first, it’s all sand and waves, but tensions run high when an anonymous letter shakes up an already-flailing love triangle.

When someone turns up dead, Eva can’t even trust her closest friends—but she thinks she can trust Colton. As they get closer to the truth, they uncover secrets that upend everything they thought they knew about their fellow spring breakers.

Critical Praise

Praise for Bad Like Us

"Gabriella Lepore’s Bad Like Us is a juicy, claustrophobic entry into the canon of contemporary young adult thrillers. Short chapters, alternating points-of-view, interview snippets, and saved video confessions will have you racing through the pages of Bad Like Us, piecing together and peeling back the layers of this intricate who-done-it on a spring break gone wrong." —Sarah Henning, best-selling author of the Sea Witch duology

Praise for The Last One to Fall

"Full of twists and turns, The Last One to Fall kept me guessing until the final pages. A delightfully deceptive, cleverly crafted mystery!" — Chelsea Pitcher, author of This Lie Will Kill You

"A one-sitting read for teens who love a whodunit." —Kirkus Reviews

Praise for This Is Why We Lie

"Starts with a shock and keeps you guessing to the end. Moody, atmospheric, and swirling with secrets, you won’t know who to trust the entire time—and you’ll cling to every word of Lepore’s gorgeous writing."—Diana Urban, author of All Your Twisted Secrets

"This fast-paced novel will keep teens guessing until the very end… Perfect for fans of One of Us is Lying, this is highly recommended for thriller shelves."—School Library Journal -
