*** REVIEW ***
If I had to summarize We Were Liars in one word, I think I'd pick boring. The whole thing felt rather pointless. I kept reading it only because this books became Goodreads Choice Winner in 2014, so I thought maybe I'm missing something.
The book didn't have much of a plot other than Cadence understanding what happened during Summer Fifteen. So, we stumble through this book to find out the big secret and... That's it. Here's the secret and here's the end of the book.
The writing was odd and felt disjointed. I didn't develop any sort of emotional attachment to any of the characters, so by the time the "big revel" happened... I didn't care.
I'm still not sure where the raving reviews for this book comes from. I'd suggest to better skip this one and find another book to enjoy.
