Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "What do the queen bee, star athlete, valedictorian, stoner, loner, and music geek all have in common? They were all invited to a scholarship dinner, only to discover it's a trap. Someone has locked them into a room with a bomb, a syringe filled with poison, and a note saying they have an hour to pick someone to kill ... or else everyone dies."--Amazon.

    Amber (the music genius), Robbie (the jock), Scott (the stoner), Sasha (the popular girl), Priya (the loner), and Diego (the valedictorian) all get an invitation to a dinner with the mayor, celebrating their successful scholarship applications. But they begin to feel somewhat unsettled when the door to their private dining room gets locked from the outside and the thermostat seems to be stuck on high. After deciding the best course of action is to at least eat until someone comes to rescue them, they make a terrible discovery: they have to choose which one of them will die by poisoning, and if they don't choose, a bomb will kill them all. Alternating between their current situation and Amber's recollections of the past, each begins to come up with conspiracies and accusations, pushing all of them to their limits. The Breakfast Club meets Karen M. McManus' One of Us Is Lying (2017) in Urban's adrenaline-fueled thriller, pitting the six teens against one another in a satisfying and delightfully claustrophobic ode to Agatha Christie. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
