Book Review: "We Were Liars" by E. Lockhart

This is the story of Cadence Sinclair Eastman.  She is one of THE Sinclairs, who summer on their private island off the coast of Martha’s Vineyard each year.  Granddad lives in the big house on the island, Cady and her mother live in one house, Mirren, Aunt Bess and the little cousins in another house, and Johnny, Aunt Carrie and Gat live in the last house on the island.  Cady, Mirren, Johnny and Gat are inseparable – they are The Liars.  Then, in their Fifteenth Summer – Cadence has a terrible accident and it seems no one will tell her all of what happened.  She is left with amnesia and horrendous migraines and doesn’t get to go back to the island until her Seventeenth Summer when she unravels the truths, secrets and memories of what really happened to her.

I had heard so many good things about this book, that I was really excited to read it.  Then two of my co-workers read it and convinced me to move it up on the list – that I had to read this and soon.  I am so glad that I listened to them!  And kudos to them for not giving anything away either.  So I will extend the same courtesy to you….  I will not give this mystery away.  Just know that this is an incredible book – one that completely blew me away by the end.  I was so surprised and shocked and twisted up by it all that I really wanted to go back and read it again.  Such a great book, with great characters and development….  Go read this!!  Thank me later!!
