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.
Why I’m Excited: This is probably the book I’m most excited for this year. THIS YEAR. And yes, I know there will be new books by some of my favorite authors, but… E. Lockhart. The Disreputable History of Frankie-Landua Banks is still one of my all time favorite books–not just the story, but the way it was told. The description for We Were Liars lists all of my favorite things in books, and I know that E. Lockhart pull them all together brilliantly.
We Were Liars comes out May 13, 2014 from Delacorte Press.
