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

THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

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:

    This book is by far my favourite book I have ever read and has such a good twist to it. It is full of surprises and jaw dropping m,oments. Also the book that leaves you sobbing and leaving you to question the book. It is full of all different emotions (love, anger, depression, guilt). I recommend this to all young adults looking for a book to read.

        Comments about We Were Liars:

        I had heard about this book from a number of people and decided to pick it up, and I'm so glad I did. Despite the slow-ish beginning, the book does pick up quickly and I couldn't put it down after that. Got two of my friends to read it as well and they were in love with it too. Amazingly written and a fantastic story.

            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.
