By Peggy J. Hailey So how is your Reading Challenge going? (For those who might have missed it, I invited everyone to join me in attempting to read 10 books over this year.) Mine's off to a great start. I picked up a recent Young Adult book by E. Lockhart called We Were Liars (for those keeping count, this could fulfill the “book by a female author” choice). The book has gotten a ton of great reviews and was on all kinds of year-end “Best of” lists, so I was excited to see what all of the fuss was about. The book is narrated by Cadence (or Cady) at age 18. She tells us right away that she comes from a wealthy New England family that spends their summers on their own private island and that the family tends to hide all negative emotions to present a perfect, smiling face to the world. She also tells us that something happened the summer that she was 15 that she can't remember and that nothing has been the same since. The rest of the book is Cadence trying to piece together the truth of what happened that night. One of my very favorite things in a book is an unreliable narrator. I love the idea that there's more going on than we're being told, and I love that it's my job as a reader to catch the clues about what I'm not being told. I enjoy taking a more active role in what I'm reading, rather than just accepting what a given character is telling me. There are twists and turns galore in the book, and the big reveal caught me totally by surprise. There are, indeed, a lot of liars to be found here. Some of them even lying to themselves.
