A New York Times Bestseller

One of James Patterson's "Favorite Thrillers for the Beach" (New York Times)

"Haunting, sophisticated . . . a novel so twisty and well-told that it will appeal to older readers as well as to adolescents." —Wall Street Journal

"A rich, stunning summer mystery with a sharp twist that will leave you dying to talk about the book with a pal or ten." —

"Thrilling, beautiful, and blisteringly smart, We Were Liars is utterly unforgettable." —John Green, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Fault in Our Stars

"You’re going to want to remember the title. Liars details the summers of a girl who harbors a dark secret, and delivers a satisfying, but shocking twist ending." —Breia Brissey, Entertainment Weekly

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.
True love.
The truth.
We Were Liars is a modern, sophisticated suspense novel from New York Times bestselling author, National Book Award finalist, and Printz Award honoree E. Lockhart. 
Read it.
And if anyone asks you how it ends, just LIE.

"An ambitious novel with an engaging voice, a clever plot and some terrific writing." —New York Times Book Review

"No one should be talking about the shocking twist ending. What we can talk about is...[Lockhart's] razor-sharp portrayal of a family for whom keeping up appearances is paramount and, ultimately, tragic." —The Chicago Tribune

A New York Times bestseller!

"The best new horror of the season." –Mashable

"There’s Someone Inside Your House is equal parts heart-stopping horror and steamy romance. It’s tons of bloody fun." –HelloGiggles

"Turn on—all—the lights before reading this hair-raiser full of serious Scream vibes." –Seventeen

It's been almost a year since Makani Young came to live with her grandmother in landlocked Nebraska, and she's still adjusting to her new life. And still haunted by her past in Hawaii.

Then, one by one, the students of her small town high school begin to die in a series of gruesome murders, each with increasing and grotesque flair. As the terror grows closer and the hunt intensifies for the killer, Makani will be forced to confront her own dark secrets.
Stephanie Perkins, bestselling author of Anna and the French Kiss, returns with a fresh take on the classic teen slasher story that’s fun, quick-witted, and completely impossible to put down. 

"There's Someone Inside Your House is a heart-pounding page-turner with an outstanding cast of characters, a deliciously creepy setting, and an absolutely merciless body count. Best read at night with big bowl of popcorn, this is a killer addition to the slasher genre written by one of the best contemporary YA writers around." —Courtney Summers, author of All the Rage and Cracked Up to Be

"Perkins deftly builds the suspense like a pro.... Readers will be sleeping with one eye open." —Booklist

"Perkins lulls readers into a false sense of security before twisting the knife." —Publishers Weekly
»Du kommer att bli kär i Lola och pojken i huset bredvid. Galet kär! Det slår gnistor om varenda sida.« | Sarah Mlynowski

»Det är inte bara en kärlekshistoria utan en berättelse om vänskap, om att växa upp, och om att fatta svåra beslut.« | Seventeen

»Omöjlig att lägga ifrån sig.« | MTV

Lola Nolan älskar att klä sig i roliga, glittriga outfits och peruker i alla möjliga färger och hon drömmer om att en dag jobba som kostymtecknare i Hollywood. Det passar henne perfekt att bo i San Francisco, där ingen höjer på ögonbrynen åt hennes klädstil eller åt att hon har två pappor men ingen mamma. Allt känns faktiskt helt okej, särskilt nu när hon har träffat sin drömkille – sexige rockmusikern Max.

Men just när allt är så bra händer det som inte får hända: Lola ser en flyttbil stå parkerad utanför grannhuset. Till sin fasa inser hon att Cricket Bell är tillbaka. Lola har gjort allt för att förtränga sina känslor för honom under tiden han och hans familj bott på annat håll. Och för att glömma hans hemska tvillingsyster Calliope.

Nu verkar det inte bättre än att Lola, en gång för alla, måste göra upp med sina känslor för pojken i huset bredvid…
