*goodreads synopsis*
A beautiful and distinguished family.
A private island.
A brilliant, damaged girl; a passionate, political boy.
A group of four friends—the Liars—whose friendship turns destructive.
A revolution. An accident. A secret.
Lies upon lies.
True love.
The truth.

This synopsis is precisely all i knew about the book before i actually started reading it….no more,no less; and as you can say, I had absolutely no idea what the book was about and had no expectations from it whatsoever.Nonetheless I started reading it and I must say it came as a pleasant surprise.

At  the end of the book, i was like:giphy

P.S: I don’t feel the book would have the same impact if if too much of the story is revealed.Hence, I would not be mentioning too much of the plot in my review.

‘We were liars’ was my very first book by E.Lockhart and i must say,her writing style was incredibly comendable!Reading we were liars was as good as eating a delicious pie…perfect, right from the start to the end (sorry if that comparison seems awkward; what else can you expect from a person with a sweet-tooth ,after all? )!

It was one of those books where the beginning and the body are good already but the last few pages get you absolutely hooked!And frankly speaking, this is exactly what happened in my case where, the first few pages left me craving for more but the last section of the book changed the course of the book completely and blew my mind.Moreover, I could not resist reading on and knowing what had actually happened earlier.

Mind you, when i talk about a ‘plot twist’ please do not expect a spine-chilling Sherlock Holmes style mystery ’cause this book is after all, a YA (young adult) novel about how broken ‘perfectly beautiful’ families can actually be.

The book is indeed, a wonderful read for people with love for unexpected endings.Also, if you want to know what it feels like to spend every summer on a private exotic island where everything feels beautiful and beyond perfect,do consider picking up this book.
