Didn't enjoy it as much as the first book but if another was released I'd read it. I think my problem was it only vaguely connected to the first books characters. I get that it had to be in the same "universe" but it would've been nice (for me at least) if it still featured the same cast from the first book.
Just when I thought I had it all figured out...BAM! Karen twists the plot in a whole different direction! Loved going back to revisit the whole gang and how Karen pulled in the next wave of Bayview HS students. Please tell me there’s another on the horizon?!?

The Short Version
I sped through this so as not to spoil it with Season 2 of the Netflix show. I needn't have bothered as they aren't the same storyline.
In this novel, the Original Bayview Four have graduated, but a new cyberbully has it out for Bayview High - and Maeve Rojas (Bronwyn's little sister), her best friend Knox and Phoebe Lawton who works at their favorite hangout seem to be in the crosshairs. When a student ends up dead after a Dare and Maeve discovers disappearing posts on a revenge forum, they do some serious sleuthing to work out who is responsible.
A fast-paced thriller. I enjoyed it, especially Maeve and Luis Santos getting closer, but in a popcorn sort of way. Not sure I'll remember much about it in a week.
I thought it was good. I would've liked it better, but it was good. Miss McManus is a good author I would read her other books too.
"A year after the Bayview four were cleared of Simon Kelleher's death, a new mystery has cropped up--a game with dangerous consequences that's targeting students at Bayview again. And if the creator isn't found soon, dangerous could prove deadly"--

It had a good pace like the first one and some cross-over characters, but it was it’s own book and I don’t think you need to remember a lot about the first book to enjoy it. ( )
