We Were Liars (E. Lockhart)

Article by marycatherine

Get ready: I am not going to stop talking about this book any time soon. Actually, you should go ahead and buy it, since I'll convince you sooner or later that your life isn't complete without it. Does it sound like I'm stalling? Avoiding a concise summary of why you should read this book? I am...but only because I can't tell you anything about it! The less you know, the better. I'll tell you this: Cadence Sinclair spends her summers on her family's private island (the type of private island where houses have names), swimming, boating, reading, and dreaming with her cousins. But in their fifteenth summer, something happened. Now, two years later, Cadence can't remember what it was--or why no one will talk about it. This mysterious tale defies categorization: it’s not quite a mystery, not quite a thriller, not quite a coming-of-age tale, and yet somehow, it’s all of those at once! Just pick it up.
