We Were Liars

Goodreads Summary:

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 National Book Award finalist and Printz Award honoree E. Lockhart.

Read it.
And if anyone asks you how it ends, just LIE.

My Thoughts:

Wow.  Just wow.  I was intrigued by the blurb summary of this book, and it did not disappoint.  The imagery alone in the book makes it worth the read.  I loved how the author personified the emotions of the protagonist.  Despite it’s being a quick read, the writing showed a beautiful understanding of literary writing.  The story itself is fabulous, and the ending — it’s wowing.  I totally did not expect that ending At. All.  Loved it.


Would I recommend this to fellow book-lovers?  A thousand times, yes.
Would I recommend this to children/teens?  Teens, yes.  Children, no.


4 of 5 stars.
