We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

"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."

It is true what they say about this book – the less you know about it, the better.

For the first time ever I won’t give you a summary of this book. I will say, however, that E. Lockhart crafted a beautiful and heart-breaking story with a very poetic and original writing style and a mystery (most) readers won’t be able to solve.

I tried my best to guess what will happen at the very end but I could not. I was truly shocked because my guesses were completely wrong. My face was a mixed between horror and disbelief when I found out.

So, this may be the shortest review in the history of book reviews but I honestly say it is better if I don’t give anything away, just for the sake of the reading experience. You only have to know that I like this book and if you see yourself as a contemporary and mystery lover, this is the book for you.
