Ardo asked E. Lockhart:

Did you go into We Were Liars with the goal of making a critique on the intersections of wealth, privilege and race? I thought it was great how you used the relationship between Cadence and Gat to illustrate it.

E. Lockhart Yes. I usually start my books with a subject I am angry about. I am not looking to make any kind of simple argument, but to explore a subject about which I feel emotional.
