We Were Liars is a much anticipated title by author E. Lockhart. I enjoyed the Ruby Oliver series very much, so I was excited to read her new book. It's a psychological thriller full of suspense and mystery.
It's very hard to summarize We Were Liars without giving away too many spoilers. Let's just say that the narrator is Cadence Sinclair Eastman, a beautiful girl of almost eighteen. The story follows the wealthy Sinclair family as they spend their holidays on a windswept island off the Massachusetts coast. The main characters are the Liars, four friends who are very loyal to each other. It's a story of love and family secrets, of hallucinations and a terrible accident.
This book left me breathless. I was compelled to read it all in one sitting, but it wasn't possible. I'd recommend it wholeheartedly.
