Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Sarah Hill
Any novel produced by Alloy Entertainment (Gossip Girls, The Clique series) flies off library and bookstore shelves. This sequel to Pretty Little Liars (HarperTempest, 2006/VOYA December 2006) will not disappoint series readers. The four girls are back and haunted by someone who leaves text messages and notes signed, "-A." Alison was the ringleader of the group who blackmailed friends and everyone loved to secretly hate her. But now Alison's disappearance has turned into murder, and the four girls are being frightened by someone who knows all their secrets. Emily struggles with her attraction to other girls, Aria's dad cheats with a yoga instructor, Hanna suffers from bulimia, and Spencer steals cars, boyfriends, and sex. The four girls are drawn together again as secrets are revealed after the big charity ball. Just when all the problems seemed solved, Emily receives another text from A, and readers will be scrambling to read Perfect (HarperTeen, 2007), the third book in the series, to see what happens next. The characters are fashion hungry, boy crazy, addicted to trouble, and living like soap-opera stars. Chick lit readers will be pleased with the addition of mystery and murders. With no bad language or graphic sex scenes, this novel is unlikely to stir up problems, but it will still satisfy teenage girls looking for accounts about rich girls in trouble. Alloy Entertainment's Web site notes that the Pretty Little Liars series is being developed into a series pilot for the CW channel.
KLIATT - Amanda MacGregor
The sequel to Pretty Little Liars continues the stories of Aria, Spencer, Emily, and Hanna. The girls all used to be best friends, but after their friend Ali went missing three years ago, they drifted apart. Now Ali's body has been recovered and the girls are brought back together by threatening messages they are receiving from an anonymous source who goes simply by "A." A. seems to be everywhere at once, seeing everything they do and knowing intimate secrets from their pasts. The girls feel they cannot go to their parents or the police about what is happening because A. knows about their involvement in an accident, something they've long kept quiet. A. manipulates the girls and threatens to reveal their deepest secrets unless they do what they are instructed to. The girls cannot figure out who is out to get them. Though reluctant to be brought together again, the four former friends must rely on each other and reveal secrets they have long kept hidden. Flawless initially seems like many of the other chick lit books so popular right now. The main characters are privileged, promising, well-liked girls. They have problems with their peers and boyfriends, just like other teens; but there is more going on: they struggle with bulimia, coming out, and disintegrating families. A. seems to know it all. The suspenseful mystery is what really sets this title apart from the pack, giving it a wider appeal than its cover may indicate. Reviewer: Amanda MacGregor
Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
With a quick flashback to the evening when a deep, dark secret bound five friends together, the second book of the "Pretty Little Liars Novel" series picks up the story some years later. After Alison's disappearance, the girls parted and went their separate ways in the town of Rosewood. The discovery of Alison's remains and her memorial service bring the girls together briefly. The four remaining friends, Spencer, Emily, Aria, and Hanna, are now juniors in high school. There are many more secrets that each girl harbors separately. Alison knew about those secrets, and a mysterious person called A also knows them, as well as about the girls' current activities. A threatens to reveal all their scandals. Adding to the suspense, Toby returns home to Rosewood from a reform school in Maine; he has his secrets, too. The tension grows as Spencer, Emily, Aria, and Hanna try to figure out who A is now that Alison is dead and why this person wants to mar their flawless, designer appearances with their darkest secrets.
School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up
This sequel to Pretty Little Liars (HarperTeen, 2006) opens with the story of Ali, Aria, Spencer, Hanna, and Emily's involvement in an accident that caused a classmate to be hospitalized at the end of seventh grade and Ali's subsequent disappearance. Chapter one then picks up three years later: Ali's body has just been found and the four ex-best friends are at her memorial service reading a virulent communiqué from someone named A. Throughout the remainder of the book, the text messages, notes, and emails from the mysterious A continue to plague the girls, threatening to reveal their darkest secrets. And now A has stepped up the pressure, manipulating them just like Ali did. They've been able to hide these secrets from everyone and present the appearance of being flawless. Only Ali knew, and she's been dead for almost three years. So who is A? And will the threats be carried through to ruin their now-perfect lives? The girls are similar to those in Cecily von Ziegesar's "Gossip Girl" series (Little, Brown): they are wealthy spenders who smoke, drink, think/talk about sex, and attend fabulous parties. What makes this book stand apart is the overriding mystery of A's identity and the girls' fear of discovery. This second book also continues to develop the characters as they work through their very real worries and insecurities. Secondary characters and situations are also more complex. Flawless won't stay on your shelves.

Chapter One

How it really began . . .

You know that boy who lives a few doors down from you who's just the creepiest person alive? When you're on your front porch, about to kiss your boyfriend good night, you might glimpse him across the street, just standing there. He'll randomly appear when you're gossiping with your best friends--except maybe it's not so random at all. He's the black cat who seems to know your path. If he rides by your house, you think: I'm going to fail my bio exam. If he looks at you funny, watch your back.

Every town has a black-cat boy. In Rosewood, his name was Toby Cavanaugh.

"I think she needs more blush." Spencer Hastings leaned back and examined one of her best friends, Emily Fields. "I can still see her freckles."

"I've got some Clinique concealer." Alison DiLaurentis sprang up and ran to her blue corduroy makeup bag.

Emily looked at herself in the mirror propped up on Alison's living room coffee table. She tilted her face one way, then another, and puckered her pink lips. "My mom would kill me if she saw me with all this stuff on."

"Yeah, but we'll kill you if you take it off," warned Aria Montgomery, who was, for her own Aria reasons, prancing around the room in a pink mohair bra she'd recently knitted.

"Yeah, Em, you look awesome," Hanna Marin agreed. Hanna satcross-legged on the floor and kept swiveling around to check that her crack wasn't sticking out of her low-rise, slightly-too-small Blue Cult jeans.

It was a Friday night in April, and Ali, Aria, Emily, Spencer, and Hanna were having one of their typical sixth-grade sleepovers: putting way too much makeup on each other, chowing on sea salt and vinegar Kettle chips, and half-watching MTV Cribs on Ali's flat-screen TV. Tonight there was the addition of everyone's clothes spread out on the carpet since they'd decided to swap clothes for the rest of their sixth-grade school year.

Spencer held up a lemon-yellow cashmere cardigan to her slender torso.

"Take it," Ali told her. "It'll look cute on you."

Hanna pulled an olive corduroy skirt of Ali's around her hips, turned to Ali, and struck a pose. "What do you think? Would Sean like it?"

Ali groaned and smacked Hanna with a pillow. Ever since they'd become friends in September, all Hanna could talk about was how much she looooved Sean Ackard, a boy in their class at Rosewood Day School, where they'd all been going since kindergarten. In fifth grade, Sean had been just another short, freckled guy in their class, but over the summer, he'd grown a couple inches and lost his baby fat. Now, pretty much every girl wanted to kiss him.

It was amazing how much could change in a year.

The girls--everyone but Ali--knew that all too well. Last year, they were just . . . there. Spencer was the überanal girl who sat at the front of the class and raised her hand at every question. Aria was the slightly freaky girl who made up dance routines instead of playing soccer like everyone else. Emily was the shy, state-ranked swimmer who had a lot going on under the surface--if you just got to know her. And Hanna might've been klutzy and bumbling, but she studied Vogue and Teen Vogue and every once in a while she'd blurt out something totally random about fashion that no one else knew.

There was something special about all of them, sure, but they lived in Rosewood, Pennsylvania, a suburb twenty miles outside Philadelphia, and everything was special in Rosewood. Flowers smelled sweeter, water tasted better, houses were just plain bigger. People joked that the squirrels spent their nights cleaning up litter and weeding errant dandelions from the cobblestone sidewalks so Rosewood would look perfect for its demanding residents. In a place where everything looked so flawless, it was hard to stand out.

But somehow Ali did. With her long blond hair, heart-shaped face and huge blue eyes, she was the most stunning girl around. After Ali united them in friendship-- sometimes it felt like she'd discovered them--the girls were definitely more than just there. Suddenly, they had an all-access pass to do things they'd never dared before. Like changing into short skirts in the Rosewood Day girls' bathroom after they got off the bus in the morning. Or passing boys ChapStick-kissed notes in class. Or walking down the Rosewood Day hallway in an intimidating line, ignoring all the losers.

Ali grabbed a tube of shimmery purple lipstick and smeared it all over her lips. "Who am I?" The others groaned--Ali was imitating Imogen Smith, a girl in their class who was a little bit too in love with her Nars lipstick.

"No, wait." Spencer pursed her bow-shaped lips and handed Ali a pillow. "Put this up your shirt."

"Nice." Ali stuffed it under her pink polo, and everyone giggled some more. The rumor was that Imogen went all the way with Jeffery Klein, a tenth grader, and she was having his baby.

"You guys are awful." Emily blushed. She was the most demure of the group, maybe because of her superstrict upbringing--her parents thought anything fun was evil.

"What, Em?" Ali linked her arm around Emily's elbow. "Imogen's looking awfully fat--she should hope she's pregnant."

The girls laughed again, but a little uneasily. Ali had a talent for finding a girl's weakness, and even if Ali was right about Imogen, the girls all sometimes wondered if Ali was ever ripping on them when they weren't around. Sometimes it was hard to know for sure.

They settled back into sorting through one another's clothes. Aria fell in love with an ultrapreppie Fred Perry dress of Spencer's. Emily slid a denim miniskirt up her skinny legs and asked everyone if it was too short. Ali declared a pair of Hanna's Joe's jeans too bell-bottomy and slid them off, revealing her velour candy-pink boy shorts. As she walked past the window to the stereo, she froze.

"Oh my God!" she screamed, running behind the blackberry-colored velvet couch.

The girls wheeled around. At the window was Toby Cavanaugh. He was just . . . standing there. Staring at them.

    LOVE THIS BOOK.

    I thought Flawless was a really good book. It refreshes your memory from the first book, Pretty Little Liars, very well. The author gives you kind of a summary of what happened n the first book before each even with each person occurs. Sometimes the book is a little hard to follow because of all the different characters and stories each of them have. But, I think that is one of the things that make it so good. There are also a lot of unexpected events that occurred and made this book very good. It was hard to even put it down. There is also a lot of mystery in this book. Spencer, Aria, Hanna, and Emily all get strange texts, IMs, and emails from a person named A who claims to know everything about them; even their deepest and darkest secrets. Like, what really happened on the night of the Jenna Thing, what Spencer's dad really does at "work", and who Emily and Aria really like. The end is also very unexpected and interesting. Hopefully they are one step closer to finding out who A really is.

    Best book series ever!

    Flawless and the whole Pretty Little Liars series are some of the best and suspenseful I've ever read. I finished this book in 2 hours (right after I bought it :p ) You never see any of it coming, and when you think you've got it all figured out the story turns on you and it's back to the drawing board. :) And the characters are well-defined, and you can really relate to them despite their uh, problems. If you haven't read this book already, go to Barnes & Noble RIGHT NOW. :)

    The only thing I recommend for readers is do not, I repeat DO NOT go to the Pretty Little Liars website or the Wikipedia page on the series. Spoiler Alert!!! I found out everything up to the end of Unbelieveable when I was in the middle of Pretty Little Liars, so don't end up like me! lol :)

    A great sequel

    So, here we are, book two of the never-ending, crazy series of Pretty Little Liars.
    Flawless, was just that—absolutely FLAWLESS. It was a great sequel to the best-seller that started it all.
    In Flawless, the girls' secrets get even DARKER. The suspense....gets even MORE suspenseful. And A's notes don't dissappear—and why would they? A loves messing around in these poor liars' heads, as you learned in the first book.
    As the stakes get higher, as the girls get naughtier, there's still one lesson at least ONE of them constantly has in mind:
    Beauty is only skin deep.

    It Will Definetely Keep You Glued!!!!!!!!!!

    Flawless by Sara Shepard is the second book in the popular Pretty Little Liars series. It focuses on the lives of four high school juniors: Spencer, Aria, Emily, and Hanna. These four girls' best friend from seventh grade, Alison, went missing during the summer after seventh grade. The series is about how the girls are being threatened by someone named "A" who knows secrets about them, that only Ali did. Now, Ali's body has been found, and yet at Ali's funeral service the girls are still receiving texts from A. Flawless also reflects on a huge mistake the girls made back when Ali was still alive. Ali had accidentally lit a firework that went directly into Jenna's( a girl from school) face. The firework thus blinded Jenna, and A is threatening to reveal the secret of who really blinded Jenna, even though her stepbrother, Toby, falsely takes the blame. In the book, the girls have more secrets then ever. Aria is hiding the secret that her father is chaeting on her mother; Hanna is trying her best to hide Jenna's accident and who really did it; Emily, who seemingly fell in love with a girl before, is now in love with Toby; and Spencer is seeing her sister's ex-boyfriend behind her back as well as copying her sister's essay for homework. The girls' secrets and mistakes lead to may complications and more drama than they ever expected. It's a good book, however it has some really inappropriate scenes, and I recommend checking with your parents before you read it. However, I also recommend this thrilling book to any girl who loves mystery, drama, and Pretty Little Liars, if you haven't read it yet.

    The mystery continues

    Flawless immediately begins where Pretty Little Liars ends: the afternoon of Ali¿s funeral service. Aria, Spencer, Emily and Hanna are still stunned that their former friend¿s body was found. The police have reopened the case and now consider it as homicide. Each girl admits to receiving texts and e-mails from ¿A¿ and agree to disclose if any more are received. All four have secrets that they have kept from each other and the only other person who knows is Ali. Now Ali is dead and that leaves no explanation for how ¿A¿ knows all about these secrets.<BR/><BR/>Flawless goes more in depth with each character and her back story. Spencer constantly feels inferior to her older sister, Melissa. When Melissa catches Spencer with her boyfriend, her parents shun her and barely speak to her. They are nonchalant about Ali¿s death and hardly acknowledge Spencer¿s grief. Feeling ousted by her family, Spencer resumes her relationship with Wren and soon her perfect facade begins to crack. Spencer also feels guilty about what really happened the night the Jenna thing occurred, but remains silent. Her silence may eventually put her friends in harm¿s way.<BR/><BR/>Hanna is desperately trying to hold it together. She no longer feels like the ¿confident, popular¿ Hanna, but more like the ¿insecure, overweight ¿ Hanna of years ago. Hanna continues to make poor decisions and tries to live with the consequences. Her dad is back in her life, but he comes with his soon-to-be bride and Hanna¿s nemesis, step-sister Kate.<BR/><BR/>Emily is trying to understand her feelings for the new girl, Maya. She begins to avoid Maya and soon finds herself on a date with someone she never considered dating potential. She¿s also dealing with her ex-boyfriend¿s hatred after he caught Emily kissing Maya.<BR/><BR/>Aria is trying to get over her feelings for her teacher. She finds a new love interest, but isn¿t quite sure what to expect. In the meantime, she¿s also carrying the burden of the real reason why her dad moved her family to Iceland and realized the problem hasn¿t gone away at all.<BR/><BR/>So, you think each girl has enough to deal with, right? Well, apparently ¿A¿ doesn¿t think so. ¿A¿ not only continues to send texts and e-mails, no, he/she has upped the ante and begins leaving notes on their car windshields, in their textbooks and at school. ¿A¿ is carrying out his/her threats and forces the girls to do the unspeakable to protect their secrets.<BR/><BR/>Honestly, I can¿t believe how much I like this series! It¿s very quick reading and the more I learn about each girl and their secret, the more I want to know ¿A¿s¿ identity. I¿ve narrowed it down to two people, so we¿ll see if I¿m right. ¿A¿ definitely turned up the heat at the end of Flawless, so I can¿t wait to see what happens in book 3, Perfect.

    The cover: I like it. It¿s not bad neither good. However, I do l

    The cover:
    I like it. It’s not bad neither good. However, I do love the font *_*. And if you didn’t know, this is Hanna Marin on the over. What’s cool, is that on the back cover you can see the real model for Hanna, it’s done in all the books.

    The storyline:
    Where should I begin?
    Let me get directly to the point after the summary.
    Summary:
    Flawless picks up right where Pretty Little Liars left off. In this sequel, we get to know more about The Jenna Thing, Toby and each girl’s secret.
    Aria is no longer seeing Ezra, and somehow she gets caught up with Sean, Hanna’s ex-boyfriend. And her family’s situation is only getting worse.
    Spencer’s attitude has completely changed. She’s now dating Wren, her sister’s ex, and she thinks everything is still fine. Until, her deepest secret is going to be out. And then things crumple down.
    Emily is really messed up. She can’t make up her mind about her feelings. She becomes friends with Toby, and finds herself really liking him. Thinking by doing that she’s proving to herself that she’s not gay. Well, guess faith had other plans for her.
    Finally, Hanna is dealing with her own demons. Not that this isn’t enough, her father comes back to add fuel to the already strong flames. Everything seems to be working against her.
    And guess who’s ruining and manipulating them? Of course you’d guess, it’s “A”.
    The girls meet and actually talk to each other, in the last chapters, in Foxy, a charity party, where they seem to not be able to find Emily and they think she’s in serious danger.
    the book ends with them finally acting like friends and thinking that they’ve got everything figured out and there’s no more “A” until shim (a.k.a Him/She) sends a very threatening SMS to Emily. And that’s the end.
    What I Liked/Loved:
    - The storyline. It was amazing.
    - The suspense and twists were unexpected.
    - The way the chapters were laid and how each chapter had a very interesting title. It’s like I had to decipher the title and make possibilities of what might happen.
    - The ending :).
    What I disliked:
    - Sometimes I would find the story fast paced and other times it’d be really slow.
    - The characters were just not reliable. I know there are teenagers like them, but it was just too much.

    Conclusion:
    To be honest, I wish I’ve read the books before watching the show. Throughout the book I’ve been either spoiled or bored because I kind of knew what was going to happen.
    Also, I read it in a very stressful and confusing time, so I didn’t enjoy it really and kept going back and reading each page because the next day I couldn’t remember what I read the day before.
    So yeah, this is why the book was ruined for me.

    The point? This book is really good. And I’m sure if I read it, like in nine months, I will probably give it 4 or 5 stars.

    One more advice: Don’t read spoiling reviews or blurbs before you read the book, they might ruin the experience and the suspense element.

    What’s next? Perfect of course!! I want more of “A”!!! :D.

    I am giving "Pretty Little Liars Book 2" 4 stars out of 5 stars. The book was amazing, it was suspensful and entertaining and was capable of 5 stars. The large amounts of cursing and sexual scenes made it 4 stars. Still a great book and gives you a clue to the killer. Definetly recomended.

    Great Guilty Pleasure Read!

    I wouldn't say that Shepard's writing is on the same field as a Fitzgerald or Rowling (Yes, I am a Potter Fan); however, for a fun, light and quick read, the Pretty Little Liars Series is perfect. Not the same as the popular ABC Family Television Series, this book series provides readers with a twisted and suspenseful storyline completely independent of the TV series. The mysteries are exciting, and I felt like I was part of the story. As a young 20-something, I thought these books, while a bit juvenile, were a blast to read and the perfect break from the stress of my daily college life. If you're looking for great works of fiction, this is not for you; however, if you are looking for a fun beach read or an easy break from life, these books are just that!

    This is by far one of the most thrilling series i have ever read, you are always guessing, when you think you have solved it, it just turns and make you think again... i would reccommend 100% if you like thrill books. it is kind of like a gossip girl meets csi,in a way...But you have to readit to find out:P
