Critic Reviews

"Narrator Kimberly Farr convincingly delivers the jaded viewpoint of privileged 17-year-old Carrie Sinclair, who recounts the worst thing she ever did in her childhood.... Farr captures the tense tone of a story in which events build dramatically, unexpected happenings add darkness, and surprises lurk around every corner."

Loved this audio

The narrator was fantastic- the story very engrossing. The drama felt real, not forced or too much.

Satisfying

Gorgeously atmospheric, FAMILY OF LIARS, the prequel to WE WERE LIARS drips privilege, snobbery and deception. FAMILY OF LIARS is perfect for listening on Audible. What might have been a slow read kept me interested as the four, now three Sinclair daughters feel the loss of the youngest, Rosemary, who drowned the summer before. No one speaks of the ten-year-old, whose ghost begins to visit narrator Carrie. Or is Rosemary a delusion?

Carrie learns painful truths, about her family and about herself the summer after Rosemary, while her detached parents pretend all is well. All is not well.

Though FAMILY OF LIARS lacks the big reveal of WE WERE LIARS, Lockhart’s poetic prose is a thing to behold and a reason to listen to the audiobook.
