LoveReading Expert Review of We Were Liars

One of our Books of the Year 2014  A gripping story with a brilliantly shocking ending. Rich, beautiful, privileged – the Sinclair clan seem to have it all. For Cadence and her cousins that means long hot summers on their special holiday island. Days of swimming and picnics and parties. But around them swirl the problems of their parents and particularly, the complex issues of their inheritance. When Cadence hits her head in an accident she can’t remember anything about how it might have happened; a whole section of her life is missing. It is only when she goes back to the family island that the truth slowly and painfully becomes clear.

A Piece of Passion from Emma Matthewson, Editor-at-Large, Hot Key Books   "This has been one of those books that just sucked everybody in from the moment we started reading. E. Lockhart has written a book of contrasts and of many parts, and that is what makes this book so very, very extraordinary and addictive. It is a book that was born to be talked about."

Sarah Odedina, Hot Key MD, says: "Everyone at Hot Key Books is so excited and energised by having this breathtaking book on the list. It is a one-sitting heart-pounding read. It is quite simply unique and we know we are going to have a spectacular time bringing it to the attention of readers."

In addition to our Lovereading expert opinion some of our Reader Review Panel were also lucky enough to read and review this title.
