  • They lied

    Once upon a time there was a book who's synopsis was vague, the reviews were great and it was named a modern, sophisticated suspense novel. This was a suspense novel??? I kept waiting for the good part and ended the book a little short, ok a lot. This book wasn't a particularly long one but it certainly felt like one. The build-up to the climax was super slow and then it was over. This story is about four teenagers who spent all of their summers on a private island, something happens and then story is over. The end. I do have to say that it wasn't expecting the main outcome of the story but then again, it was so completely predictable. And the writing style is just like this. It was very choppy and for what seems to be no particular reason other than to annoy the reader. I think I almost preferred to read the once upon a time stories the main character Cadence tells then the actual story itself. I'm not sure how this novel received such rave reviews. I guess I missed the boat on that one.

  • Complex and Suspenseful

    I really enjoyed this YA novel - it's a complex and suspenseful story of a wealthy family trying to repress their bad history. Cadence is determined to find out what her family is hiding, but what she discovers has a high price. Well-written and sophisticated, We Were Liars keeps you guessing until the end.

With no male heirs the sister’s father is determined to leave the family fortune to the eldest grandchild. Each summer the sisters and their children gather on the family’s island near Martha’s Vineyard. It is here that the eldest children and the boy from the wrong side of the tracks become the Liers. Summer after summer the children grow up together. Then in summer fifteen everything comes to a head. The grandmother has died and the aunts are fighting. The eldest children have had enough and take matters into their own hands. Two summers later the eldest of Liers is back trying to recover her memories of that fateful summer. This is her story and her attempt to put the fragments of memory back together. What she finds is tragic and shocking. An interesting read investigating in its own way the mysteries of memory and recall after deep personal tragedy.

  • We were liars

    Well... I somewhat guessed the ending. I read comments from others, not liking the authors way of writing for this particular book. In my opinion the narrative and choice of dialect actually flowed with the main character. It matched the thoughts of one who would be in her position at her age. I quite enjoyed this book and would definitely recommend it. As an easy, mysterious, wondrous read. It is well done :)

    Thanks for your feedback!
