You kept me in the dark. You kept everyone in the dark. I was left hanging by a thread, confused, flames dancing in front of my eyes as I turned the last page. I thought it was a joke, but the unfortunate realisation only dawned on me as I reached the acknowledgements that it really was the end. The end of summers spent huddled in the sand, eating fudge. Stolen kisses.The end of pretences, kept as masks until the very end; the end of the Liars.
You are liars, you are beautiful and privileged, you are cracked and broken. You are a tale of love and romance, and a tale of tragedy. You are deceit. Poetic. Alarmingly literal at times but, hey, I won't hold that against you. You are everything I expected and, at the same time, not what I expected at all. You are a piece of art for the eyes and mind to devour. You are genius in book form.
