“This is the book everyone is going to be talking about this year.  Cadence Sinclair -- yes, of those Sinclairs -- spends her summers with her family on their private island off of Martha's Vineyard where the houses have names and appearances must be maintained.  What has changed this summer?  And why won't anyone tell Cadence what happened two years ago?  This book is best experienced with little prior knowledge of the plot, but you can expect beautiful language, twists aplenty, and a sophisticated mastery of style.  On top of all that, it's a page-turner in the truest sense.  Teens and adults alike will adore We Were Liars.”—Mary-Catherine Breed, Brazos Bookstore, Houston, TX
