Unforgettable is certainly a word I would apply to Lockhart’s We Were Liars. Among the comfort of old-money, a private family island, intelligence and looks to match, the other side of perfect is exposed. This novel is about whimsical summers, family loyalty and strife and just how far the latter will push you. The mystery of something just beyond the reach of Cadence’s memory kept me reading, however I was unsatisfied with the resolution. The weight of her actions would surely follow her every minute of every waking day, the gravity of which was not sufficiently realized by Cadence. Although it is fiction, anyone who is uncomfortable with animal peril might just want to pass this up.
