A beautiful and distinguished family.

Read it.
And if anyone asks you how it ends, just LIE.
(Synopsis Provided By GoodReads)

I found We Were Liars a book I couldn’t put down. Filled with the ease of summer time but with all the tension and uncertainty that comes with loving something too much – whether that be family, money or a boy. Oh, and lying sometimes isn't the worse thing we can do.

When you read the book, there is a looming feeling, you want to trust the book and you love the book but there is always something unexplained – confusing at first but you go with it and it all makes sense in the end. It was a great reading experience if I do say so myself. The chapters are fast-paced and sometimes it’s hard to really understand what you should feel in that given moment. The main character Cadence can be a little irritating at times but there are reasons when everyone is lying to you.
