Book Review: Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard

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.

Review: I got hooked on the t.v. show when it first came out. As I was watching it I decided to read the books because I thought they might be good. As it turned out, I was right. The book was a lot like the Pilot episode of the t.v. show. This book was a quick read and pretty entertaining. The four girls, Spencer, Hanna, Emily, and Aria separated after the 7th grade when their friend, Alison, went missing. When Alison was found dead 3 years later, the four girls reunited. They all started recieving strange text messages that end with "-A". Before they knew Alison was dead they thought that "A" might be Alison. But when they started recieving texts from "A" after Alison was found dead, then they were very concerned.

I think my favorite character out of the four main girls would be Aria. She has to deal with her father's secret and finding out that the guy she really likes is her new English teacher. She doesn't do anything crazy like when Hannah stole her boyfriend's car and smashed it into a telephone pole. I think I could relate to her the most. What I didn't like about this book was the language and some of the mature content. I really liked the storyline but some of the content made me rate the book 3.5 coffee cups. I would recommend this book if you like a quick read and don't mind the language.
I can't wait to read the next book. I'm eager to find out who "A" is!
