MEDIA REVIEWS
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, #1 New York Times bestselling author of THE FAULT IN OUR STARS *
So, @elockhart's new book WE WERE LIARS showed up the other day, and I ended up NOT GOING TO BED because WAS READING and OH MY GOD. * Maureen Johnson *
A haunting tale about how families live within their own mythologies. Sad, wonderful, and real. * Scott Westerfeld, author of UGLIES and LEVIATHAN *
A beautifully written page-turner ... When you've finished reading you'll be desperate to pass WE WERE LIARS on * Cosmopolitan *
Lockhart has created a mystery with an ending most readers won't see coming, one so horrific it will prompt some to return immediately to page one to figure out how they missed it. * Publisher's Weekly, Starred Review *
This is a cunning, clever and absolutely gripping novel, full of surprises, which sent me straight back to its first page as soon as I reached the last. * The Guardian *
This is an ambitious novel with an engaging voice, a clever plot and some terrific writing. * The New York Times *
Stylish, compelling and heartbreaking (...) I'm in awe of E. Lockhart's control and characterisation here -- Liz Flanagan * theguardian.com *
We Were Liars is a story about growing up. Finding yourself and loosing yourself. It's a dark story about the destructive power held by secrets, the damaging effects of a family trauma and the tragedy that can be caused by love -- Lauren Molyneaux * Live Ribble Valley, GOOD READ *
We Were Liars is a literary musing on young love, memory, coming-of-age, and tragedy with a deliciously twisty ending * Huffingtonpost.com *
Don't mind me, I'm just still crying about this book. I heard so much about We Were Liars in 2015, but sort of passed it off as your usual overly-dramatic young adult contemporary. I would like to formally apologise to this book for ever thinking that. This is a book of secrets, and it will kick you in the gut. It's a quick read so, please, just give it a try * Magic and Musings *
We Were Liars is a moving young adult novel with a twist so intese, you won't see it coming * teenvogue.com *
Love, mystery, amnesia, and a group of teenagers. What can we say about this? It'll leave you stunned * sugarscape.com *
Has a twist most readers won't see coming. -- James Patterson * New York Times *
'5 YA books every teen should read', 'An eerie love story set within a self-destructing family. I read it three years ago and can't recommend it enough. A beautiful, beautiful book that had me gasping by the end.' * Big Issue *
This book is about inheritance, death, amnesia, and its gripping plot will have you whipping through the pages. * Refinery29 *
strikes a great balance between fun summer romance novel and horrifying summer mystery novel * Bustle *
Full of complex characters and mystery, that will suck you in from the first page. Both the adults and the teenagers are struggling with darkness within their own selves. The ending will definitely shock you and keep you wondering why you didn't figure things out sooner. A must read * Buzzfeed *
Under all that teen romance, We Were Liars is a psychological thriller with one gut-punch of a plot twist * Bustle *
Compelling... as a reader you are questioning everything all the time in this tragic but beautiful story * Books for Keeps *
