We Were Liars We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
This book compels you to read to the end as soon as possible so you can actually find out what has happened to this group of four that nobody will talk about!
The story begins simply enough;Welcome to the Sinclair family. No one is a criminal. No one is an addict. No one is a failure. As we read along, we learn more about this family and how they deal with life, or don’t and how important it is to keep up appearances, the family doesn’t talk about things, divorce, death- these things are tucked away and the public face must be maintained at all times.So as we learn more about this group of friends, we wonder- what really happened out there on that island that summer they were all last together? I developed some ideas as I read, but was never really sure what had happened, but i knew something had. We read from the perspective of one of the Liars, a group of three cousins and a friend, who get together at the family island every summer vacation. Here they are in their own world, all that happens in their lives off the island throughout the year does not matter here, or does it?This book is a quick read, a page turner and does not fail to keep you guessing right to the last minute. E. Lockhart is the author of The Boy Book, part of the Ruby Oliver Series, and How to Be Bad.
