Yesterday I finished E. Lockharts We Were Liars and I thought, "I NEED to write a review on this book!"
|20% off at Target! HEY!|
This isn't going to be like a normal book review, just because I don't want to give a lot away; it's important to go into this book not knowing anything at all.
First of all, I give it 4/5 stars, due to the fact that it's brilliantly written and executed, but it isn't something I would read again.
Why wouldn't I read this again? It isn't necessarily a happy, summer read. It's more something you pick up if you want to think.
The book is narrated by Cadence, who comes from the rich, right, Sinclair family. The entire family spends their summer on an island that their grandparents own off the coast of Massachusetts. They live in a facade where everyone in their family is perfect..."No one is needy. No one is wrong."
Cadence is the first born of the Sinclair grandchildren, and spends her summers with the other first born children of the families: Johnny and Mirren. Then comes Gat, not their cousin, but a boy of their age brought by Johnny's mom's boyfriend. Johnny, Mirren, Gat, Cadence. They call themselves the Liars.
Summer fifteen goes horribly wrong.
THAT'S ALL I CAN TELL YOU.
I've never read anything by E. Lockhart before, but I know she has other books and I'm willing to check them out after reading this book.
I'd probably recommend this to the old YA crowd, 15+
If you haven't read it yet, go read it.
If you'd like me to discuss this book further, including spoilers, let me know.
You can tweet at me @brookewrote to let me know :)
