Review: We Were Liars

We Were Liars
We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Cadence Sinclair Eastman comes from money. Her mother and aunts have always had it and can’t seem to do anything right. Since her grandmother has died, the aunts (and her mother) do everything they can to kiss up to their father who has the ability to re-pad their trust funds, or cut them off all together. Unfortunately, her family is keeping a secret. Cadence cannot remember parts of her fifteenth summer. She knows she woke up with most of her clothes missing and is now suffering from migraines, but no one will talk about that summer. It is now her seventeen summer and she is returning to the family’s island. Will she discover the truth of that fateful summer? Does she really want to know?

We Were Liars is one of those books that you really don’t know what to expect. The description you find inside the jacket is vague on purpose, so the reader spends a lot of time trying to guess. It worked! I am one of those readers who will skip the summary so that I can be surprised. This is not a long and drawn out book, so readers will quickly discover that they are flying through the pages. I will not give anything away since the publisher was being intentionally vague, but readers can expect to be surprised and hopefully not figure it until right before the big reveal. A great read that I highly recommend. Lockhart has really outdone herself on this one!
