This is my personal review without spoilers of the actual plot.
In the exclusive town of Rosewood, Pennsylvania, where the sweetest smiles hide the darkest secrets, four pretty little liars–Spencer, Aria, Emily, and Hanna–have been very bad girls. . . .
Spencer stole her sister’s boyfriend. Aria is brokenhearted over her English teacher. Emily likes her new friend Maya . . . as much more than a friend. And Hanna’s obsession with looking flawless is literally making her sick. But the most horrible secret of all is something so scandalous it could destroy their perfect little lives.
And someone named “A” is threatening to do just that.
At first they thought A was Alison, their friend who vanished three years ago . . . but then Alison turned up dead. So could A be Melissa, Spencer’s ultracompetitive sister? Or Maya, who wants Emily all to herself? What about Toby, the mysterious guy who left town right after Alison went missing?
One thing’s for certain: A’s got the dirt to bury them all alive, and with every crumpled note, wicked IM, and vindictive text message A sends, the girls get a little closer to losing it all.
Another amazing book in the series, just like the first, it’s extremely similar to the television series. The amount of things that happen in this book is unbelievable. I was mesmerized by the sheer amount of action and drama this tiny book contain. I’m a huge fan of this story and the plot is spotless.
Like in the first book is a fun and light read and easy to pick up even though you aren’t used to reading. The book was – I want to say literally, even though it’s incorrect – glued to my hands the entire read. The drama and mystery will suck you in.
The reason why I like this so much is that it’s realistic! The girls deal with real problems like relationships, family issues and of course defining oneself. My only issue with this compared to that of the series is how unsure and closed they all are toward each other about what A is saying to them. In the series, every time someone gets a text message or email that are literally on the phone with each other in a matter of seconds.
Of course, they got secrets they don’t want anyone besides themselves knowing, but I would like to see the girls developing a more close relationship. I wouldn’t necessarily say that this is YA only, but you definitely need some sort of interest in drama and teenage problems in order to enjoy this installment. All books aren’t for everybody with only a few exceptions of Harry Potter, everyone relates differently to everything. However, I’ll definitely continue the third book already and after I’m done with the series, I’m going to check out more books written by Shepard.
