Book review: We were liars

Synopsis: 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 LiarsWe Were Liars by E. Lockhart
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Read this for the popsugar reading challenge. I couldn’t put this book down. It had me hooked from the first page. This book is summery and fun yet kind of spooky and surreal at the same time. I never expected the ending of the book. The idea of the main character Cadence’s amnesia driving most of the plot is unique. The ending is shocking because of the fact that all the characters have their own voice and reaction to the tragedy of summer fifteen. I wasn’t expecting this book to end up being so crazy. The gothic feel of this novel was also super unexpected. I am so glad I read this book. The writing in this book is poetic and lyrical in some ways. I also liked the use of Cadence’s fairytales in the middle of the narrative. The fact that Cadence likes to read and write made her relatable to me because I also like to read and write. I cannot wait to read more books by this author. I forgot how much I love this author since I have not read anything by this author since the Ruby Oliver series a long time ago. I hope to read genuine fraud soon.
