REVIEW: We Were Liars

We Were Liars

  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.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Where do I begin? 

Anyone that knows me (really knows me) will understand why this book resonated with me so personally.

I won't lie. This book actually gave me a full blown panic attack. 
It was a wonderfully painful read that deserves all of the praise it has been given.

Yes, there are many examples of foreshadowing.
Yes, there are some fabulous literary references.
Yes, the writing style is superb.
Yes, you WILL cry.

This is one of those books that haunts you for many weeks after. 
The story stays with you. It is not a forgettable read.
