We Were Liars is a modern, sophisticated suspense novel from New York Times bestselling author, National Book Award finalist, and Printz Award honoree E. Lockhart.

Read it.

And if anyone asks you how it ends, just LIE.

(via Goodreads)

We Were Liars is a mystery at its heart. Over the top metaphors that border on confusing at times, this book was predictable and at times, but overall a quick read for anyone needing a break from the big tomes we have been offered lately in the YA genre.

I didn’t wholly connect with the main character. I found her shallow in her pursuit of meaning. She lacked any sort of empathy that I felt I could connect with. And while the mystery is pretty easy to work out, a reader joins the ride for the supporting characters.

I preferred Frankie Landau-Banks on this occasion.
