My twenty-year-old daughter and I have enjoyed the television version of 'Pretty Little Liars' for the past several years. I'm glad I didn't read the book first, since I would never have watched the show.

In the book, the main characters are caricatures, with almost no redeeming qualities, and their parents are even worse. Everything is done to excess, including profanity. By the last chapter, I felt like I was starting to see the Aria, Spencer, Emily, and Hanna I love, even as I want to admonish them to make better choices, but I think I'll stick with their TV counterparts.
