We Were Liars immediately captivated readers as a sophisticated summer thriller when published in 2014. Its mysterious tone, inventive storytelling, and evocative prose gripped readers’ imaginations and has not let go in the eight years since. FAMILY OF LIARS (Delacorte Press І May 3, 2022 І Ages 12+) will arrive in the midst of a TikTok phenomenon that has vaulted #wewereliars to over 85 million views, hooked an ever-growing fandom, and pushed it to the New York Times bestseller list for 18 months during 2020 to 2022.Returning to the Sinclair family’s private island compound off the coast of Massachusetts a generation earlier, in 1987, tragedy upends what was meant to be a summer of fun, laughter, and first love. When Carrie Sinclair, the fiery, prescription drug–addicted heiress to a storied New England family’s fortune, meets the irresistible, unpredictable Lor Pfefferman, her lackadaisical summer becomes a season of unforgivable betrayal, terrible mistakes, and shocking violence.Will she forever uphold the family’s rules of keeping secrets no matter the pain? Readers will again marvel at Lockhart’s talent for surprises and masterful writing. Intense summer friendships, fraught romance, and unspeakable truths are at the core of this atypical summer read.
