Everyone has something to hide-especially High School Juniors Spencer, Aria, Emily and Hanna.
Spencer covets her sister's boyfriend.Aria's fantasizing about her English teacher.Emily's crushing on the new girl at school.Hanna uses some ugly tricks to stay beautiful.But they've all kept an even bigger secret since their friend Alison vanished.
How do I know? Because I know everything about the bad girls they were,the naughty girls they are, and all the dirty secrets they've kept.And guess what? I'm telling. ~A.

Pretty Little Liars is the first book in the Pretty Little Liars series, by Sara Shepard. 

Alison, Aria, Spencer, Emily and Hanna are BFFs.But something that happens in seventh grade, will change their lives forever.Alison is missing.In fact, she's been missing for 3 years.The remaining friends drift apart, each with her own personal demons.And secrets.  

In PLL, Shepard describes the teenage angsts of the very privileged and rich.Bulimia, shop lifting, sexual ambiguity, parents incompetence, racism, is amongst the subjects this book touches on.As the characters develop, we see them struggling with every day life and their long lost friendship, which, even though they won't admit it, long to get back.To top it all, a mysterious person named A., sends them texts and e-mails, threatening to expose them, as she seems to know all of their dirty secrets.At the end, the girls come together, in the hopes of dealing with this A. once and for all. 

I loved this book!Fast paced, full of romance and secrets and interesting characters.I know that some people aren't too fond of many characters in one book, but I find it exciting.Each girl has a completely different character, so you never get bored or tired of them.Besides, all the characters are seen from one POV, the writer's, so there is no confusion,whatsoever.  
If you like this genre, this is the book to read!  

Beware : This book contains strong language and some semi-provocative images.I am not a parent so I cannot say wether you should let your children to read this or not, but I thought I'd give you a heads-up.


  1. You should, it's great!You can always watch the series based on it, it comes out in June.

  2. I loved this book! I went and ordered the next ones from the library as soon as I read it! 5 Stars - full of suspense and secrets and gossip (just as great as Gossip Girl)!!! :)
