We Were Liars

We Were Liars

E. Lockhart
Friday, Jun 30, 2017

Cadence is part of the incredibly wealthy and distinguished Sinclair family. She has been spending the summer on a private island with a group of her four friends. She has amnesia. She can’t remember their revolution. She can’t remember the accident. Everyone is keeping a secret from her, how can she remember the truth?

We Were Liars is a modern, sophisticated suspense novel. This was, without a doubt, one of the most powerful and well-crafted books I have read in a really long time. This book is about loss, it is about recovery. It is about family and money, revolution and love. This book is so beautiful. It perfectly demonstrates both loss and grieving. It is wonderful and beautiful and perfect. Be prepared to cry over how beautiful it is, even if you have never lost someone.

Just read it. And if anyone asks you how it ends, just LIE. (People who like thrillers and suspense novels will not be disappointed).
