SUMMARY (from Goodreads):
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 National Book Award finalist and Printz Award honoree E. Lockhart.
Read it.
And if anyone asks you how it ends, just LIE.
For most of the book, I had absolutely no idea what was going on. No idea whatsoever. But even though I didn't know what was happening...I loved it. I loved it so much, it is now tied for my favorite book of the year.
The writing was so unique; I've never read anything quite like it. It was lyrical, but it was to the point E. Lockhart didn't waste any words in this book. 
There was also so much intrigue I could barely stand it. I just had to know what happened! E. Lockhart keeps you in suspense until the very end. And once I finally got to the end, my jaw was on the floor. I DID NOT SEE IT COMING!!
I don't want to say much more, because I don't want to spoil anything, so I am going to end this review with this:
This book absolutely blew my mind. And you should read it, so yours can be blown too.
CONTENT: Kissing, some use of the f-word, and mild violence.
