So those of you who follow my Bookstagram @beccareadsbooks will know that yesterday I met the absolutely lovely E.Lockhart with my best friend Matty @b.geek on instagram (follow him) at Manchester Deansgate Waterstones.
E. Lockhart is award winning author of We Were Liars, Fly On The Wall, Dramarama, Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks and the Ruby Oliver quartet: The Boyfriend List, The Boy Book, The Treasure Map of Boys, and Real Live Boyfriends. She has a doctorate in English literature from Columbia University, her field being 19th century British Novel. She currently teaches creative writing at Hamline University’s low-residency MFA program in writing for children.
The signing was for the new Waterstones deluxe hardback edition of We Were Liars…
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.
If you you haven’t read We Were Liars I highly recommend you do and I wont talk about it as it is a book you want to go into knowing nothing about it.
The signing was also to promote her new book Genuine Fraud publishing Sept 2017.
Imogen is a runaway heiress, an orphan, a cook, and a cheat.
Jule is a fighter, a social chameleon, and an athlete.
An intense friendship. A disappearance. A murder, or maybe two.
A bad romance, or maybe three.
Blunt objects, disguises, blood, and chocolate. The American dream, superheroes, spies, and villains.
A girl who refuses to give people what they want from her.
A girl who refuses to be the person she once was.
You can pre-order Genuine Fraud from most major book retailers.
