We Were Liars

We Were LiarsWe Were Liars by E. Lockhart
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

That was terrible.
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.
The characters were horrible people, although I think that's the point. But seriously, I am glad they're fictional.

The plot was slow, focusing more on Cadence's thoughts. As I said before though, she's no role model. Most of the time I didn't want to know her thoughts.

I did like the way it was formatted, with the sentences
Sometimes like this.
Very pretty, although it makes
It extremely difficult
To feel
Cadence's emotions.

The ending completely threw me off. At first it bothered me, but it just won't leave my mind. We Were Liars has the ultimate stay-with-you climax.

I don't recommend this book...but that's just my opinion. A lot of other reviewers loved it. I think I'm focusing more on the incredibly selfish characters than the good points of the book.
