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. We Were Liars is a modern, sophisticated suspense novel from New York Times bestselling author, National Book Award finalist, and Printz Award honoree E. Lockhart. Listen to it. And if anyone asks you how it ends, just LIE.

A good story but a bit of an obvious plot twist

The story is interesting and you start to understand and appreciate the characters. A good look at the selfishness and greed that the wealthy suffer from, and ultimately the hurt and devastation that it can cause. It addressed racial issues and ultimately reminded you that love and family are much more important than money and material things, however you could see the twist coming a mile off. Still it was enjoyable and thought provoking. It was also read very well.

Six-year-old Helen and Ellie are identical twins, but Helen is smarter, more popular, and their mother's favorite. Ellie, on the other hand, requires special instruction at school, is friendless, and is punished at every turn. Until they decide to swap places - just for fun, and just for one day - and Ellie refuses to switch back. Everything of Helen's, from her toys to her friends to her identity, now belongs to her sister.
