Summary
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER * The thrilling prequel to the TikTok phenomenon and New York Times bestseller We Were Liars takes readers back to the story of another summer, another generation, and the secrets that will haunt them for decades to come.

A fiery, addicted heiress. An irresistible, unpredictable boy.
A summer of unforgivable betrayal and terrible mistakes.

Welcome back to the Sinclair family.
They were always liars.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In a highly anticipated prequel, Lockhart revisits the Sinclair family one generation before We Were Liars (2014). Caroline Lennox Taft Sinclair, oldest daughter of Harris and Tipper, reluctantly tells the story of her seventeenth summer at the urging of her son, Johnny, who wants to know the absolute worst thing she ever did. Carrie spends the summer of 1987 in a haze of painkillers and sleeping pills after an excruciating jaw surgery. It's the year she sees her first ghost, and the summer three intriguing boys join the family on their private island. Jealousy leads to a shocking act of violence, foreshadowed in the bloody fairy tales Carrie tells to obscure her darkest truths. This novel was written explicitly for fans of the original; parallels and spoilers abound. Readers will appreciate the climactic reveal which, while not quite as shocking as the twist in We Were Liars, goes far to explain the Sinclair sisters' dynamics, and exposes a family of immense wealth and privilege crippled by greed, secrets, silence, and selfishness.High-Demand Backstory: The built-in audience for this is huge, thanks to the immense popularity of We Were Liars."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Lockhart returns for another look behind the privileged Sinclair family's gleaming facade in this absorbing prequel to 2014's We Were Liars. Centered on the original Liars' mothers as teens in 1987, the story is narrated by Carrie, the eldest of the three surviving Sinclair sisters, in response to a request for details about "the absolute worst thing you ever did, back then." The bulk of the action unfurls on and around Beechwood, the wealthy family's private island off the Massachusetts coast. Though the rest of her family seems to have moved on, 17-year-old Carrie still grieves for her youngest sister, Rosemary, who drowned the previous summer at age 10. Numbing herself with prescription codeine and filched sleeping tablets, Carrie finds comfort in visits from Rosemary's palpable, talkative ghost. When the siblings' uncle and cousin show up with surprise guests--three charismatic teen boys--Carrie is swept into a romance with one of them, dishy but careless Lawrence "Pfeff" Pfefferman. In the weeks that follow, she learns several ugly family secrets as events stress-test the sisters' bonds. Lush language and a setting full of breezy glamor provide an easy entry point into this layered, atmospherically tense exploration of jealousy, love, and family loyalty. Characters read as white. Ages 12--up. Agent: Elizabeth Kaplan, Elizabeth Kaplan Literary. (May)"
