Book Blog: WE WERE LIARS by E. Lockhart
Cady and the rest of the "Liars"--two of her cousins and their friend--spend every summer on her family's private island. At the beginning of the book, Cady, the main character, is a seventeen-year-old girl who suffers migraines, and she can't remember a traumatic event from two summers ago. She begins piecing things together from conversations with the Liars when they're reunited on the island for summer 17.
Not only is the story moving, but the prose is gorgeous, and I adored Cady's rewritten fairytales sprinkled throughout, each illuminating different truths of the same story, each changing as Cady herself learns more about her family and summer 15.
Also--have Kleenex at the ready.
