The story of one family, one summer, and one act that may never be forgiven. 'Thrilling, beautiful and blisteringly smart.utterly unforgettable.' JOHN GREEN


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 that will leave you reeling.

Read it.

And if anyone asks you how it ends, just LIE.

    Comments about We Were Liars:

    I was recommended to read 'we were liars' from a friend who had the book and i read the story in one sitting. It was engaging, compelling and just down right creative. I would recommend this story to anyone who loves surprises and well written novels with realistic characters.

    'We Were Liars is heartbreaking, witty, beautiful and disturbing. E. Lockhart's best book to date.' - Justine Larbalestier 'A haunting tale about how families live within their own mythologies. Sad, wonderful, and real.' - Scott Westerfeld
