We Were Liars: By E. Lockhart

Hey readers,
Happy New Year!  I have a new amazing book to share that those of you who liked If I Stay or The Fault in Our Stars.

Cadence, the narrator, is part of a family called the Sinclairs. The Sinclairs are a wealthy family in which everyone is smart, beautiful and goes to an excellent private school. But the family is full of greed, rivalry and fights over money.  Every summer, all of the Sinclairs go to their private island for the whole summer. There, they are served by butlers, play tennis and partake in small talk to take their minds off of their endless family issues.

Cadence's aunts are constantly arguing over trust funds, who will get their dead mom's things and over granddad's approval.  Cadence and her cousins, Johnny and Mirren, spend the summer together every year and try to escape the pressures of their parents. Then there is Gat. He is an outsider to the Sinclair family who isn't a part of their wealthy world. Cadence and Gat find themselves falling in love summer after summer. As the summers go by,  money and family turmoil increases. During summer 15 at the island, Cadence has an accident. As a result of the accident, she has amnesia and experiences migraines. Her memory of summer 15 and her accident is shattered. Cadence returns to the island two years after the catastrophe to try to put the pieces back together.

I guarantee you will not regret reading this page turner filled with love and surprises. Keep in mind there is a big twist at the end of this book that will leave you shocked! I hope you enjoy!!!
