We Were Liars (YA)
Book #42 Read in 2014
We Were Liars by e. lockhart (YA)
The "Liars" are a group of rich, teenage cousins--Johnny, Cadence and Miriam, and their sort of extended family member Gat. The four get together every summer at their family's island of summer homes. All of their parents have issues and so do the kids. Then one summer something horrible happens and Cadence blocks it out....and she is suffering from horrible migraine headaches and is on medication. After a summer away from the island, she returns and slowly memories begin to return....but will she be better off if they don't?
This book was a great, quick read. The twists and turns were engaging. The characters were flawed but that made them more interesting. I highly recommend this book.
I received a copy of this book from the Amazon Vine program in exchange for a review.
