This was a fascinating book. I’m glad Ms. Minnich drew my attention to its presence on Netgalley. It was also fun having multiple conversations about the end of the book on Twitter, Facebook, and text. Mysterious!

I’m looking forward to hearing and seeing readers’ reactions to this book once it hits the shelves. Its birthday is on May 13th.

From Amazon:

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.

  1. I finished a Dr.Seuss biography, Who was Ben Franklin (biography), and I re-read Diary of a wimpy kid 3: The Last Straw. It’s good to reread a book once in a while.
