We Were Liars

Cover: 'We Were Liars'

Staff Review: "We Were Liars" by E. Lockhart


WE WERE LIARS is the perfect summer read for teens and adults! Cadence Sinclair lives a life unfamiliar to most of us, full of money, privilege, and summers spent on a private island with her family. Something terrible happens the summer that she is fifteen between Cadence, her two cousins, and family friend Gat, whom are collectively know as "The Liars," but she can't quite remember what happened. The book twists and turns and its heartbreaking prose makes it impossible to put down. And, as the author suggests, if anyone asks you about the ending, just lie.

Audience: teens | Genre: fiction
