Description

A New York Times Bestseller One of James Patterson's "Favorite Thrillers for the Beach" (New York Times) "Haunting, sophisticated...? novel so twisty and well-told that it will appeal to older readers as well as to adolescents." -Wall Street Journal "A rich, stunning summer mystery with a sharp twist that will leave you dying to talk about the book with a pal or ten." -Parade.com "Thrilling, beautiful, and blisteringly smart, We Were Liars is utterly unforgettable." -John Green, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Fault in Our Stars "You're going to want to remember the title. Liars details the summers of a girl who harbors a dark secret, and delivers a satisfying, but shocking twist ending." -Breia Brissey, Entertainment Weekly A beautiful and distinguished family. A private island. A brilliant, damaged girl; a passionate, political boy. A group of four friends-the Liars-whose friendship turns destructive. A revolution. An accident. A secret. Lies upon lies. True love. The truth. We Were Liars is a modern, sophisticated suspense novel from New York Times bestselling author, National Book Award finalist, and Printz Award honoree E. Lockhart. Read it. And if anyone asks you how it ends, just LIE. "An ambitious novel with an engaging voice, a clever plot and some terrific writing." -New York Times Book Review "No one should be talking about the shocking twist ending. What we can talk about is...[Lockhart's] razor-sharp portrayal of a family for whom keeping up appearances is paramount and, ultimately, tragic." -The Chicago Tribune

Professional reviews

"Narrator Ariadne MeyersÕs tone is candid as 17-year-old Cadence Sinclair Eastman reveals ugly realities about her proud, wealthy family. She harshly judges her bigoted, manipulative mother, aunts, and grandfather from a secure position as one of the Òthe LiarsÓÑthe younger generation of teens who spend summers on an exclusive island. Soon Meyers reveals the opposing views of a teen named Cady. She suffers crippling headaches and is gripped by a tragedy that lurks at the edges of her unstable mind. MeyersÕs expression of CadenceÕs pain is raw and startling, as is the LiarsÕ tragic response to her unlocking of secrets. The impact of CadyÕs realizations will be just as shocking to listeners, who may immediately return to MeyersÕs narration of this haunting story. S.W.
