We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
If not for the metaphor and allegory, it would have been a boring read at the start. It peaks up toward the middle and takes your breath away by the time it reaches the end. Rarely does a book leave me sad, disturbed and utterly awed all at the same time. A classic young adult read because, as a whole, the book epitomizes its intended reader: powerful; foolish; wise; sensitive and frail.
Youth is indeed wasted in young. The remaining years are all that is left to rectify things.
