We Were Liars Review
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 National Book Award finalist and Printz Award honoree E. Lockhart.
And if anyone asks you how it ends, just LIE.
This book was pretty good, I did not see the ending coming and it took me by surprise, and for one I cried. Damn emotions.
The main character was so unreliable, that it made it so hard to believe what was real and what wasn't. Making when you found out what really happened, you doubted if that was the truth, at least that was what it was like for me.
Her cousins seemed like such good people, and everything that ended up happening seemed so obvious by the end of the book, from the foreshadowing that was carefully weaved into the story.
4 out of 5 stars
