This month we're giving you the chance to win TWO copies of We Were Liars - one for you and one for your teen! This gripping tale of a troubled family in New England will give you both plenty to discuss poolside this summer.

1. Read this book.  

Note: on reaching the final page, you may experience an urgent need to read it all over again. 

2. Check whether your friends/family have read  it.  


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.

Winner of Goodreads' Best Young Adult Fiction Book 2014, a New York Times bestseller, and a Zoella Bookclub title 2016.

Praise for We Were Liars 

"E Lockhart is one of our most important novelists, and she has given us her best book yet. Thrilling, beautiful, and blisteringly smart, We Were Liars is utterly unforgettable." – John Green, author of The Fault in Our Stars

"This is a cunning, clever and absolutely gripping novel, full of surprises, which sent me straight back to its first page as soon as I  reached the last." –  The Guardian

"A beautifully written page-turner... When you've finished reading you'll be desperate to pass it on." – Cosmopolitan


E Lockhart is the author of nine novels including The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks - which was a Michael L Printz Award Honor Book, a finalist for the National Book Award and winner of the Cybils Award for Best Young Adult Novel - as well as Fly On the Wall, Dramarama, and the four Ruby Oliver books. She also co-authored How To Be Bad with Lauren Myracle and Sarah Mlynowski.
