~*Kim*~ | 462 comments A rich family on a private island. Four friends whose friendship turns destructive. The liars is what they call themselves. One secret behind many, many lies.

Cady, 2 cousins, and a friend are the 4 liars who have grown up spending the summers on grandfather's private island. One summer changes everything, but Cady can't remember the events. The story goes back and forth from the present to the past while Cady slowly remembers what truly happened that summer. There was an unexpected twist at the end that helped boost my rating, but over all I really didn't care for the book.

Going off my TBR.

Meera I gave it a 3 too. I felt tricked because I thought I was reading a realistic fiction and then it became a thriller of sorts so I didn't care for that.

Jenni Elyse (jenni_elyse) | 1266 comments That's so interesting to hear that the twist at the end (which I know no details of) helped boost your rating. I've heard the opposite from so many of my bookish YA friends. They all liked it until the end, lol.

Agreed! I saw there was another giveaway for this book today too. Entered anyway, looks like a super short read so it might be worth it to try for me.
