I like big books and I cannot lie. When I'm not teaching English to the youth of America, I am reading a book. Why? Because books are amazeballs!
We Were Liars by E. Lockhart…sigh. I will not summarize this book. Let me just say, there are lies. I truly loved this book. I would read it with a dog. I would read it in the fog. I would read it all alone. I would read it on my phone. While I enjoyed the plot development and obviously the plot twist, I have to say that I appreciated the literary merit of the style of writing more. The choppy sentences followed by long descriptions really made Cadence Sinclair Eastman real to me. Students will love this book because it’s filled with mystery, romance, and suspense. Plus, it’s just well-written.
I received this book as an ARC from NetGalley. Thanks, Delacorte Press!
