A New York Times Bestseller
One of James Patterson's "Favorite Thrillers for the Beach" (New York Times)
"Haunting, sophisticated . . . a 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.
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.
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
Sad and meaningful
I have not bought this book but I recommend it because when I listened to the preview I cried. This book is full of meaning and the way she words things make it beautiful. I was very intrigued to read the whole book and hope other people will to. I give this book 10 stars because it AMAZING. I hope you read the book.
This book could have been a short story. It was PAINFUL to finish. Yes there is a twist at the end, but it’s a let down. NOT worth the read.
Honestly not worth the hype
Listen this book was not what I expected. I blame myself for not doing more research on it and just looking at the reviews for it but I thought this book was going to be more fun. Honestly In my personal opinion I don’t believe the book was well written. It’s confusing and while the ending you don’t really see coming I think that it’s hard to read and hard to follow along to the story.
