Guest Blogger Book Review: We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

3 days until ‪#‎TBF2014‬! I'm pretty excited about meeting E. Lockhart, the author of We Were Liars on May 17th!

Cady is a part of the beautiful and distinguished old money Sinclair family. She has grown up spending her summers on their private island off the coast of Massachusetts. Every year she is reunited with her cousins, Johnny and Mirren and the nephew of Johnny’s mother’s boyfriend, Gat. Something happens during “summer 15” when Cady, Johnny, Mirren and Gat are all fifteen years old. Cady no longer remembers anything about that summer due to traumatic brain injury and must piece together what happened. There is love, loss, and plenty of secrets. Stick with the story until the end-- it has an amazing twist.

We Were Liars is a great, quick read. It is beautifully written and unlike any other book I’ve ever read. E. Lockhart did a wonderful job of crafting memorable characters and she set just the right pace for the story. I spent days thinking about Cady, Johnny, Mirren, and Gat. It was fun to flip back to earlier parts to see what I missed the first time around. Check it out!
