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.

E. Lockhart is one of our most important novelists, and she has given us her best book yet. Thrilling, beautiful, and blisteringly smart, We Were Liars is utterly unforgettable.
— John Green, author of The Fault in Our Stars
Surprising, thrilling, and beautifully executed in spare, precise, and lyrical prose. . . Lockhart’s latest is unlike anything she’s done before….We Were Liars is poised to be big.
