Sher Wells asked E. Lockhart:

Just finished We Were Liars. Half-way through the book I told my husband that this was the best book I have ever read (I read a lot). A friend was telling me 3 years ago about the psychological technique of telling your "story" through a fairy tale; I am curious as to if you and she read/studied the same source on this technique. To have read this technique in your book was incredible

E. Lockhart Thank you. I have never heard of this technique but I think it is something all storytellers are always doing. I tell my own story, one way or another, in all my novels, even though they are quite different from one another.
E. Lockhart
