We Were Liars
by E. Lockhart

Cady is a liar.  Actually, one of four liars, and they get together every summer on the family’s private island.  Mirren and Johnny are Cady’s lovely, difficult, rich cousins, and then there’s Gat.  Beautiful, intelligent Gat, family friend and a regular on the island who loves and challenges Cady like no one else in her life.

But something bad happened two summers ago.  And every time Cady tries to remember, she gets a bad headache and has to take a little white pill.  Her mom won’t tell her, not after she tried so many times and Cady kept forgetting.  The doctors say she has to remember on her own.  And the Liars are saying nothing, even though she writes them message after message.

After a summer away, Cady is finally heading back to the island where the Liars, and the answers to all her questions, wait.  With quick chapters, magical prose, and fairy-tale imagery, you will fall under the spell of Cady and the Liars, just like everyone else.
