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

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.

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

We Were Liars seduces you with summer love, a remote island setting, hints of Wuthering Heights, and millions of theories you'll develop along the way to its utterly destructive reveal - Buzzfeed
