Who would want to read a book with a doll on the cover? I mean, isn’t that for like middle graders? WRONG. Pretty Little Liars might start off with the characters in their middle grade years, but before long, they’ve already bloomed into full fledged high school students with personalities of their own.

Hanna, Spencer, Aria and Emily were all nobodies, until Allison found them. Together, they built a friendship, but it was all based on secrets. The only secret the girls didn’t realize was that Allison was the only reason they became friends in the first place. She was their glue; the only thing holding the girls together. Without her, the girls have nothing in common. So what happens without Ali in their lives? They all go their separate routes.

Hanna is the school’s tease. After losing weight, she and Mona have become the best of friends. Emily pays more attention to swimming. She now hangs out with the swim team, and her boyfriend, who just so happens to also be on the swim team. Spencer is still the “best” at everything and her sister’s boyfriends continue to flirt with her. Aria, the unique one of the group, has just returned from Iceland. Her family moved out of the country for two years. Each girl was finally able to find a place in the world, since they are no longer in Ali’s shadow.

So what more do they have in common? Could it be those random texts they’ve been getting from A? But who is A? No one knows. It couldn’t be Alison though could it? I mean she’s gone, right? Whoever A is, she’s definitely someone who clearly knows all the girls’ secrets.

The plot is very intriguing and it just keeps the reader wanting more. After reading this book, you are left with an abundance of questions. You just can’t wait until you get your hands on its sequel, Flawless. Pretty Little Liars is a perfect example of a cliffhanger ending, and I loved every minute of it.
