Praise for We Were Liars:
20 Weeks on the New York Times Bestseller List
One of James Patterson's "Favorite Thrillers for the Beach" (The New York Times)
"Haunting, sophisticated . . . a novel so twisty and well-told that it will appeal to older readers as well as to adolescents." --The Wall Street Journal
"A rich, stunning summer mystery with a sharp twist that will leave you dying to talk about the book with a pal or ten." --Parade.com
"Thrilling, beautiful, and blisteringly smart, We Were Liars is utterly unforgettable." --John Green, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Fault in Our Stars
"You're going to want to remember the title. Liars details the summers of a girl who harbors a dark secret, and delivers a satisfying, but shocking twist ending." --Entertainment Weekly
"An ambitious novel with an engaging voice, a clever plot and some terrific writing." --The New York Times Book Review
"No one should be talking about the shocking twist ending. What we can talk about is . . . [Lockhart's] razor-sharp portrayal of a family for whom keeping up appearances is paramount and, ultimately, tragic." --Chicago Tribune
