It’s kind of like stumbling upon the scene of an accident. Once you’ve looked, you’re part of it. Especially if you walk away.
Finding this book was like stumbling upon an accident, I was reeled right in. There was no escaping this book once it had its hooks in me.
When you don’t know what you should do, can a Magic 8 ball point you in the right direction? That’s what I hoped to find out in this recently released, contemporary young adult novel!
I read Orphan Train this past spring before it was nominated for a Lincoln Award, and I can see why it was chosen! Orphan Train is an adult novel that appeals to young adults, but unfortunately has not won an Alex Award. What is an Alex Award you may ask? It is an adult novel that appeals to teens, there are quite a few winners each year, but more on that later! Orphan Train is the story of two seemingly very different women that have quite a surprising connection…
“A beautiful and distinguished family.
A private island.
A brilliant, damaged girl; a passionate, political boy.
A group of four friends—the Liars—whose friendship turns destructive.
A revolution. An accident. A secret.
Lies upon lies.
We Were Liars is a modern, sophisticated suspense novel from National Book Award finalist and Printz Award honoree E. Lockhart.
And if anyone asks you how it ends, just LIE.” – Goodreads.com
