We Were Liars
NEW this week…
We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
★ ★ ★ ★
Cadence and her three best friends spend every summer together on her grandfather’s private island, until one summer when everything changes.
Welcome to the beautiful Sinclair family.
No one is a criminal.
No one is an addict.
No one is a failure.
There’s very little that can be said about this novel without giving way too much away, so let’s just suffice it to say that this is an awesome book with an unreliable narrator (Cadence has selective amnesia after her fifteenth summer), and a couple twists that will throw even the most careful reader for a loop.
It’s about love, friendship, family, and fallings-out, and written in lovely, poetic prose, and even includes some mini-fractured fairy tales in which Cadence tries to sort through what really happened to her.
Heads up: A tiny bit of crude language (2-3 instances?)
