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.
True love.
The truth.

We Were Liars is a modern, sophisticated suspense novel from National Book Award finalist and Printz Award honoree E. Lockhart. 

Read it.

And if anyone asks you how it ends, just LIE.
A beautifully written novel that will truly blow you away! The cover is mysterious and blurred feeling as though it represented the lies and memories that have been pushed together, making them unclear.

This is an interesting and one of a kind novel, being incredibly surprising and different from anything I have ever read before it truly blew me away. The plot was unique and gripping, whilst the direction of the story was mind blowing and the events that occurred were of something I had never suspected. And that ending... WOW! Absolutely mind-twirlingly different.

Our main protagonist is innocent and vulnerable but she also appears strong and watchful, she has strong fears as she unknowingly bends 'imaginary rules'. The date of this novel is set in confused me, as the family being highly powerful alongside their 'rules' made the date and year seem much older; it felt like it was dated in the 19th century.

This novel is tricky to review and talk about as it is a story that you must know as minimal as possible. So just know this... It will leave you speechless.
