A beautiful and distinguished family.

My Review 

WE WERE LIARS by E. Lockhart, a tragic mystery and devastating tale of greed and secrets and a girl who learns the hard what family means, and what it means to lose the one that really mattered.
Cady Sinclair's family uses its inherited wealth to ensure that each successive generation is tall, blond, beautiful and powerful. Reunited each summer by the family patriarch on his private island, his three adult daughters and various grandchildren lead charmed, fairy-tale lives. 
The book unfolds with Cadence trying to piece together the memories she lost after the accident while up against debilitating migraines and amnesia. Family members refuse to speak on the subject, or have been told not to. 
Current family patriarch, Harris, built each of his three daughter's houses of their own there. Bess, Carrie, and Penny all have children and divorces. Cadence Sinclair Eastman, the oldest grandchild and the only child of Penny, has nothing but golden memories of spending summer's with The Liars, what she, her cousin Johnny, cousin Mirren, and Gat, the nephew of Carrie's Indian boyfriend, call themselves.
She returns to the island for summer seventeen determined to discover the secret of that momentous—and mysterious—summer. 
A dark, haunting, and psychological mystery family drama! A suspense thriller of a family ruined by wealth, with plenty of skeletons, and a twist of an ending you do not see coming! Recommend for Young Adult contemporary readers, who enjoy the mysterious and twisted.
I listened to the audio version, and narrator Ariadne Meyers did a good job of portraying the voices of these blue book characters. However, if listening, you may find yourself rewinding if you are interrupted. Very mysterious and chilling!
