An Amazon Best Young Adult Book of the Month, May 2014: E. Lockhart’s novel, We Were Liars, is clever, alluring, and wildly addictive. Each summer the wealthy, seemingly perfect, members of the Sinclair family gather on their private island. We Were Liars is the story of those annual reunions; in particular what happened during a summer that protagonist Cadence is unable to remember. Prejudice, greed, and shifting patriarchal favoritism among the three adult sisters contrasts with the camaraderie and worldview of the teenage cousins and their dear friend Gat. Lazy days of sticky lemonades on the roof and marathon Scrabble games give way to twisty suspense, true love, and good intentions gone horribly wrong. We Were Liars is a story that begs to be read in one sitting. --Seira Wilson
The writing is beautiful; the story is beautiful; the character- building is beautiful.
The book is a very fast read and I don't know if that is because the writing is very concise and terse or it's a fast read because you don't want to put it down.
I like books with richly drawn characters but all of these characters were very superficial and lacked depth.
I did not see it coming. And now I want to go back and reread certain parts knowing what I now know. I think it it is definitely a good and fast read. Read morePublished 1 day ago by Marianne Uveges

Ok, so my "review" has to do more with price. 9.99 for a kindle book is crazy, especially when the Hardcover is only $1 more on prime. Read morePublished 2 days ago by Brooke

I enjoyed it to some extent although I didn't find anything uplifting about it... there doesn't seem to be any arc with the main character. Read morePublished 3 days ago by Cazza
