We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

Reviewed by K. Yanna, November 2017

On the coast of Massachusetts, there sits a private island. Owned by the perfectly glass Sinclairs, everything is perfect. Their looks, their life and their family. Until one summer day. A revolution ends in secrets and lies. And one girl is out to find the truth. Her full name is Cadence Sinclair Eastman. She’s lived a flawless life, up until the insurgency. No one will tell her the truth as she pieces together the mystery that nobody wants to tell.

We Were Liars is a story about a friendship that lasts and a family that has everything and yet nothing at the same time. I would recommend this book for those who are their own Sherlock Holmes. You’ll fall in step right behind Cady as she fits the puzzle pieces together. For those who fell in love with Hazel and Augustus in The Fault in our Stars, you’ll continue loving with Cady and her Gat.
