Teen review: Psychological mystery

We Were Liars
by E. Lockhart
Genre: Mystery
Pages: 225
Appropriate for ages 15+

Reviewed by: M.S. (11th Grade)

Cadence Sinclair Eastman suffered a head injury when she was 15 and on her grandfather’s island, and suffers from frequent migraines. She has no recollection of what happened to her, and no one will tell her. So when she returns to the island two years later, she has to figure out what happened to her two summers before.


This is one of the best mystery books I have ever read. It has one of the biggest plot twists I have ever read. This book made me sob when I finished it. I highly recommend this book to everyone because the characters are well described, you feel like you are the characters, and the way it is written is amazing!

I would rate this book a 5.


Editor's note: This book has what is known as an "unreliable narrator." If you want to know what that means, go here for a review of a similar book. And if you are intrigued by the way M.S. has described this story, do NOT look it up on Goodreads or Amazon or read any reviews of it--just read it! And then lie about the ending!
