We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

What happened to Cadence during her 15th summer?

If only she could remember....but the migraines and painkillers don't allow her to find her memories.

Cadence spends every summer on Beechwood Island, a private island that her grandfather owns.  She comes from a very wealthy family, as do the other "liars",  her cousins Mirran and Johnny....along with a friend named Gat.  Something happened that summer and now, one year later, Cadence's amnesia persists.

Whether you call it a mystery or suspense, I did not see the end coming.  John Green has described the book as "Thrilling, beautiful, and blisteringly smart.  We Were Liars is utterly unforgettable."  It is all that.
