E. Lockhart’s Bestselling YA Novel WE WERE LIARS Optioned For The Big Screen

The critically acclaimed and award-winning YA novel WE WERE LIARS is on its way to theaters!

Few contemporaries have been as celebrated in recent years as E. Lockhart’s WE WERE LIARS, so it’s no surprise that the book is being adapted for film!

WE WERE LIARS tells the story of Cadence Sinclair, a member of wealthy “old money” family, and her tight knit group of friends known as “The Liars”. Cadence returns to the scene of a vicious accident that destroyed lives two years prior in the hopes to finally gaining back her memory of the incident. But sometimes, we forget things for a reason. As Cadence regains her memory, she learns the horrible truth behind the accident and discovering a shocking secret about herself.

With great prose and a twist that would make M. Night Shyamalan jealous, it’s no wonder that the novel is a Printz Award winner, a National Book Award finalist, and the Goodreads Choice Awards winner for Best Young Adult Fiction, among other accolades.

Imperative Entertainment snagged the rights and has hired Stephanie Shannon to develop the script.
