Review: We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

We Were Liars coverWelcome to the beautiful Sinclair family.

No one is a criminal.
No one is an addict.
No one is a failure.

Cadence has always spent the summer with the other Sinclairs on their private island off the coast of Massachusetts. Since summer eight, Cady, Mirren, Johnny, and Gat have been inseparable. The Liars, together.

But summer sixteen something happened. Something Cady can’t remember. Her mother tried to tell her. Others tried to tell her. But her brain cannot wrap itself around what happened.

So Cady has come back to the island. Back to her Liars. Back to finally figure out what happened. Why she is broken.

We Were Liars is not an easy book to read. But it is a deeply compelling one. None of these characters are larger than life. All of them are deeply flawed. As Cady searches for her truth, she discovers more than she had bargained for.

This book will appeal to fans of John Green, as well as readers who enjoy psychological puzzles and thrillers.

Recommended for grades 9 and up – swearing, sexual references, underage drinking, etc.
