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’s 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.

I loved One of us is lying, so I was so excited for TCKAS…Fortunately, it didn’t disappoint me.
It was bit difficult to get in the story first but when I get in it was fun, Ellery and Ezra are twins who are in Echo Park to live with their grandmother as their mother is in rehab. Ellery is obsessed with crime solving and doesn’t trust anyone except her twin. This town lost 2 girls in the last 25 years including twins aunt. Now once again there is a murder at the night when twins reached there.
The world was dark as compared to OOUIL. There are so many characters who are in complicated relationships with each other, Everyone is hiding something or ignoring. This place is heaven for Ellery’s brain.
I learned one thing from OOUIL that don’t trust anyone, so I kept suspecting to each and everyone except 3,4 characters, still end left me startled.
If you like YA mystery and drama, you should give it a try.
