Heather sent me a copy of We Were Liars and simply said, "Read it now, before it gets too hyped up or spoiled for you. DEAR. Drop everything and read. It."
When she does that, I know she's serious. Even though I had minimal interest in We Were Liars at the time, I did as commanded and was rewarded heartily by a kickass plot, elegant writing, and a book that left me pleasantly surprised and pondering.
And I'm not going to tell you anything else because I refuse to spoil.
What? You want a synopsis at least? Ok, ok.
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.
