“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.”

Let me first start off first by saying that I DID NOT finish reading this book, therefore, my opinion may later change. At the current time, I do not intend on trying to read We Were Liars again.

I was in Barnes and Noble last year when I first tried to read this book. I had an hour to kill with my friend, so we both picked up books to read while we waited. I picked up We Were Liars, because it had just came out, and there was a lot of buzz about it. In a short amount of time, I was confused. I didn’t understand what was going on in this book, so it lost my attention for the most part. I didn’t like the way it was written, or the characters.

As I tried to struggle through it, 45 minutes passed by. What page was I on? 38. This book was so slow paced to me, and it wouldn’t hold my attention. By that point, I got up and returned the book to its shelf. I waited in silence as my friend read her book.

I have heard so many people claim that this is a really good book, and maybe one day I will give it another try. I just don’t see that day coming in the near future.

Have a great day!
