Book Review: Pretty Little Liars

This is the first book in the Pretty Little Liars series. I came across the series when looking at Gossip Girl books on Amazon.

At the start of the book we meet Aria, Spencer, Ali, Hanna and Emily. They have just finished their school year and are ready to all hang out over the summer. Ali comes across as the leader of the group, confident, good looking and popular who pucked the four other girls out of nowhere and became a gang. Even though they love her because of this they also hate her snide remarks about individual secrets each of them told her that she always seems on the verge of telling.

Ali decides she wants to hypnotize and starts to argue with Spencer which leads to her kicking Ali out. But when she regrets her decision she goes out to find her but she had vanished.

Three years later and she is still missing. Aria, Spencer, Emily and Hanna since drifted apart and have their own lives. Then they start getting weird messages from someone called A. A who knows all their secrets who could only be one person. Ali.

But it doesn’t make sense why Ali is stalking them. They were all friends so why would she treat them like this.

But the new family who moved into Ali’s house find something terrible. Ali’s body. Then they realise that it isn’t Ali sending them messages but someone else.

The Pretty Little Liar books aren’t long reads but you get through them fast as you can’t wait to see which secrets A reveals and what the consequences are.

If you like Gossip Girl you’d love Pretty Little Liars. Sara Shepard also has another series called The Lying Game. Both series have been turned into TV shows. I have the first boxset but I haven’t watched it yet as the TV shows are usually so different from the books.

I give this book 5/5 as I loved all the drama and teen stuff going on.
