We Were Liars is a modern, sophisticated suspense novel from National Book Award finalist and Printz Award honoree E. Lockhart. Enter the world of the Sinclair family, a family who has every advantage. But all families have secrets—even the Sinclairs. Lives begin to unravel as those involved desperately try to hold on to the traditions that have defined their lives, but reality must win. Lockhart interweaves countless fairy tales that intersect in a fresh, medicated maze-like love story that will intellectually challenge all readers.
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.
And if anyone asks you how it ends, just LIE.
“Surprising, thrilling, and beautifully executed in spare, precise, and lyrical prose, Lockhart spins a tragic family drama, the roots of which go back generations. And the ending? Shhhh. Not telling. (But it’s a doozy)…This is poised to be big.”
