Wow what an incredible, heartbreaking read that really messes with your mind until the very end. The writing, while not for everyone I'm sure, had me mesmerized. I'm a fan of verse novel or of books written in a similar fashion so I enjoyed We Are Liars.With that said be prepared while reading We A Liars it's written in a different and poetic way and it's full of carefully crafted imagery.
We Were Liars is narrated by Cadence Sinclair Eastman who is from a very wealthy, very perfect Sinclair family who summer on the privately owned Beechwood Island. Cadence shares memories about happy summers spent on the island with her cousins Johnny, Merrin, and family friend Gat. The four call themselves The Liars. There's really not mush else to say about this book without giving away any spoilers. Seriously if you haven't read We Are Liars yet stop reading reviews and just go read it.
If you liked Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta then you'll love this book & if you haven't read Jelicoe Road yet go out and read it as well.* Warning don't read both books at the same time or back to back you may sob and then explode of feels*
The book is filled with whimsy,heartbreak, more secrets to count and a story that will crush your soul while also leaving you a bit confused about what just happened. If all that sounds like your cup of tea check out We Are Liars.5/5
