2014 book 17

E. Lockhart's We Were Liars
The publisher is making a Big Deal out of people with advance copies not revealing any of the plot of Lockhart's latest book--I'm not really sure why, as it's not THAT crazy. But hey, publicity.  Apparently I CAN reveal that it involves a rich family who summers on a private island. There are also a lot of Diana Wynne Jones references. I didn't really love this, though it did make me cry in an airport. It's kind of upsetting. Good writing, I just wasn't really as into it as I expected and wanted to be. B/B+.

A review copy was provided by the publisher. This book will be released in May.
