We Were Liars by E. Lockhart: YA Book Review
We Were Liars crop

We Were Liars is a deceptively simple story will linger with you long after you’ve finished.  The emotion, although real, honest and raw, is dealt with from afar which cushions the impact and dissipates the potential ‘whack’’ of the unpredictable twist when it hits you. Only for the impact to hit later, after you’ve finished, when you least expect it…

E. Lockhart cleverly brings in the social injustices of the time in a subtle way which allows it to mellow and mature in the mind.4 Star
