Waterstones Says

Gloriously witty, sharp and utterly addictive, We Were Liars explores outwardly perfect lives consumed by secrets, deception and privileges taken too far. Controlled and perfectly-paced, Lockhart’s ingenious novel has a way of handing you one surprise after another, while still leaving you hungry for more.

1. Read this book.

2. On reaching the final page, you may experience an urgent need to read it all over again.

3. Check your friends have read it.


We are beautiful, privileged and live a life of carefree luxury. We are cracked and broken. A story of love and romance. A tale of tragedy. Which are lies? Which is 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

'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, 

'We Were Liars is a literary musing on young love, memory, coming-of-age, and tragedy with a deliciously twisty ending.' - 

'We Were Liars is a moving young adult novel with a twist so intese, you won't see it coming.' -

'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
