We Were Liars
Award-winning author Lockhart (The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau Banks, 2008), delivers a devastating tale of greed and secrets. Cadence Eastman, heiress to a fortune, leads a charmed life. She spends every summer with her family, her cousins Johnny and Mirren, and friend Gat (the four "Liars"), on a private island. When she was 15, Cadence suffered a head injury and has spent the last two years trying to piece together her lost memories. As she recovers snippets of the past, Cadence learns what family means, and what it’s like to lose the one person who really matters most to you.
