200words (or less) review: It’s not often that a book comes with such high praise as We Were Liars. I was happy to see that Hot Key Books is publishing this in the UK and read it immediately on the train journey home, despite the fact that I get travel sick.

We Were Liars is difficult to review without spoilers but I shall try my best.

The story is narrated by Cadence, one of the ‘liars’. From a privileged family (they have their own private island) Cadence is one of those girls that seems to have everything. Yet two years ago there was an incident. Found alone, suffering from hypothermia and injuries to her head, Cadence doesn’t remember what happened.

We Were Liars tells of what happened that summer, of the ‘Liars’, their families, greed, betrayal and love. With each new chapter the intrigue grows and then of course there is the end. Which is what you’ll have to discover for yourself.

Recommend it?


Expected publication:

  1. Even though I don’t know much of what this is about (other reviewers have said the same as you about spoilers) I am DYING to read it because it still sounds amazing! Great review 🙂
