We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
Nothing says summer more than a private island, lazy days, and traumatic amnesia. 17 year-old Cadence Sinclair Easton returns to the Sinclair family island after a two-year hiatus, two years in which she was afflicted by debilitating migraines and fragmented memories of an event that happened in the summer of her fifteenth year. The Liars - Cady, her two older cousins, and family friend, Gat – spend the summer piecing together the parts of “Summer 15” that Cady has been missing. What she (and the reader) finds when all the pieces come together is a shocking answer to the mystery and an ending that is as unforgettable for us as it was repellent for her. With luscious storytelling and a poetic sense of memory, Were We Liars will leave you clamoring for the answer from start to finish.
Who is the liar here after all?
