We Were Liars

(2014)
We Were Liars

This is the story of the Sinclair family - a wealthy east coast family that owns a private island off the coast of Martha's Vineyard. Cadence (Cady) Sinclair Eastman is the main character and storyteller. Something terrible has happened to her, but we don't know what it is and have to piece her story together, as she does, with memories of summers on the island. The ending is utterly shocking when the truth is discovered. Great read and on the top of many teen book lists this year!
