We Were LiarsWe Were Liars by E. Lockhart
Audio narrated by Ariadne Meyers

Poignant story of a group of privileged kids who spend every summer together on a private island off the coast of Massachusetts; their friendship beginning when they are around 8 years old. They are the best of friends during those holidays, and over the years a young romance blooms between two of them.

One summer when they are teenagers, they witness the dysfunction and agonizing disintegration of their families which eventually leads to devastatingly tragic circumstances.

This starts off rather slow and at times is repetitive, but for a reason. It all comes together and provides a surprising reveal solving the mystery of the story. For me, this was a very touching and thought-provoking read.
