Staff Pick: We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

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 modern, sophisticated suspense novel from National Book Award finalist and Printz Award honoree E. Lockhart. 

Read it.
And if anyone asks you how it ends, just LIE. 

Pick it: for a book that keeps you guessing. I went into this book as unspoiled as possible, and loved the feeling of tension that builds as Cadence questions more of what is happening within her family and in her own past.

Pair with: F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby - there are a lot of parallels between the two books in both plot and style.
