We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
Click cover to Purchase

Reading Group Rating: Teens

Personal Rating: 5 out of 5

Given Summary: 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. 

Cover: The cover depicts three people.  Two boys and I girl.  I think that this is Johnny, Mirren, and Gat, but it very well could be Cadence.  I think it's the last scene with the three characters before they go off into heaven or wherever you go after you die.

My Review: This book threw me off.  I was not expecting that plot twist!  With every page I had a new question, but ghosts (or whatever you want to consider them) was not what I was expecting.  For all of the money in the world I wouldn't have expected this to turn into a supernatural novel.  And that's something I really liked about it!  I don't even know how to explain this novel because some people may even say that this isn't supernatural, that people have had experiences with spirits that are maybe a little similar to this... I really liked it.  This novel shows how destructive having a lot of money can be.  We all want to say we own a private island, but at what cost are you willing to own that island?  Would you want to be responsible for the reputation of the name connected to that money?  Would you want your parents to be divorced because your dad couldn't live up to that name?  Would you want your mom to tell you to be close to your grandfather so that you become the heir?  Money does weird things to people when they have too much of it.  But it's also hard to make a change.  The kids try to destroy the house, but they end up killing each other.  It makes you wonder what they could have done to get the message across that their family needed to change. 

Smile!  I'll talk to you soon!xxx
