The story of one family, one summer, and one act that may never be forgiven. A special deluxe, limited edition of the internationally best-selling novel.
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.
The truth. We Were Liars is a modern, sophisticated suspense that will leave you reeling.
And if anyone asks you how it ends, just LIE.
'We Were Liars is heartbreaking, witty, beautiful and disturbing. E. Lockhart's best book to date.' JUSTINE LARBALESTIER
'A haunting tale about how families live within their own mythologies. Sad, wonderful, and real.' SCOTT WESTERFELD
