Pretty Little Liars is a young-adult novel written by Sara Shepard. The first book of the series came out in October 2006. With a mix of mystery, thriller and romance, Pretty Little Liars has plenty of controversial subjects to tap in. The first book includes lying (of course), infidelity, theft, bullying, sleeping with a teacher and homosexuality.
The book revolves around four young girls that lost their best friend three years ago. During the summer between 7th and 8th grade, their best friend Alison DiLaurentis went missing. With her being the only thing keeping them together, Aria, Spencer, Hanna and Emily quickly grew apart. Aria’s family went to Iceland for two years, while Spencer focused more on her school work and curricular activities. Hanna, who used to be chubby and dorky, had a make-over and is now the most popular girl in school; and Emily just focused on her swimming. Each with new secrets of their own, they start panicking when a mysterious person going under the letter A starts texting and e-mailing them, threatening to tell all their secrets (past and present ones).
I started reading Pretty Little Liars because I was watching the tv series. I heard A wasn’t the same person in the books so I got curious to see who it actually was in the first place. For the first book, the tv series was quite faithfull to it. It’s not a book I recommend to everyone. Not because it’s not good. It’s really good. But unlike many other books I’ve read, this one is really more for a specific taste. If you like reading about the life of grade 11 girls and their dark secrets, this is a book for you. If not, then I suggest you go find another book to read haha
Until Next Time!
