We Were Liars

Publisher: Hot Key Books

Review

"The Sinclairs are athletic, tall and handsome. We are old-money Democrats. Our smiles are wide, our chins square, and our tennis serves aggressive."

Seventeen-year-old Cady is one of the privileged, carefree, beautiful Sinclairs. She spends her summers on their luxurious private island on the coast of Massachusetts, where her family gather every year. Here she's spent many charmed summer vacations, long idyllic days by the ocean with her cousins Mirren and Johnny, and their friend Gat. But this summer, something is different…

This captivating young adult novel grabs the reader's attention from the very first sentences, and holds it right up until its unexpected and shocking ending. E Lockhart paints a vivid portrait of the Sinclair family, spinning a dreamy, addictive tale of first love, friendship and family that teens will find impossible to put down.
