What did you love best about People Like Us?
It didn't end how I assumed it would, which shocked me the most, I think. With most YA "who-dun-it's" you can figure it out before the end. Not so for this one for me, which I really appreciated.
What other book might you compare People Like Us to and why?
"One of Us Is Lying" by Karen M. McManus is very similar, in good ways! Definitely pick that one up, too, if you liked this one.
Have you listened to any of Erin Spencer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I have not.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
(slight spoiler? maybe?) The fact that everyone willingly turned against Kay almost immediately reminded me of some of my own high school experiences. In high school, everyone loves an easy target to hate. And anyone can become that target, even if they weren't the worst bully, and it can happen instantly. Ten years ago, I had something similar happen (without murder, of course) when I was 17 and in high school, so it hit me a little hard and made me super relieved to be out of high school.
Any additional comments?
It's an engaging listen. It's definitely one that makes you not want to put it down and to keep listening. I finished it in one sitting, partly due to fibromyalgia pain but mostly because I had to know how it ended! It totally surprised me by the ending, which was nice.

I'm not usually a YA reader, but I listened to this during a business trip recently and looked forward to turning it back on every time I had to shut it off. I thought I could predict the end, and I sort of did, but then it took a real unexpected turn that I never saw coming.
