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.
True love.
The truth.


We were liars is a book centered around fear, lies, love, greed, friendship and hate with jealousy.

I read the book fairly quickly seeing that it was considerably very short. I was bored at times and intrigued at the same time. This book was kind of weird, but I liked how the plot slowly revealed itself maintaining the suspense. I went in expecting a lot since it was SO over-hyped and that was what made me rate it only 3.5 stars. The writing is beautiful, no doubt about that. The fact that I couldn’t connect with the story itself is a pity, however I did connect to the characters somewhat. The ending was totally unexpected….and weird.
I enjoyed it but not quite.
