Overview

A's making a list and checking it twice.

Rewind to junior year in Rosewood, Pennsylvania, to a winter break no one has ever heard about. . . .

Alison's murderer is in jail, A is dead, and the pretty little liars can finally relax. Or so they think. But there's a new A in town—me. I'm watching these girls day and night, and you won't believe what I've uncovered. Hanna's desperate for a very personal session with her trainer. Emily is number one on Santa's naughty list. Aria's old flame from Iceland is about to land her in hot water. And Spencer's resorting to some backhanded tactics to get what she wants.

What happens on holiday break stays on holiday break—right? But guess what. I saw. And now I'm telling.

Taking place between Unbelievable and Wicked, Pretty Little Secrets is a very special Pretty Little Liars tale revealing the liars' never-before-seen misadventures over their junior-year winter break.

Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Lucy Schall
In this addition to the best-selling Pretty Little Liars series, Alison is dead, and a new A is in town to complicate the lives of Hannah, Emily, Aria, and Spencer. Hannah battles her new stepfamily for her father's attention and a curvaceous rival for the affections of her boot camp instructor. Emily works as an undercover Santa Claus, saves the rogue elves she is to spy on, and inches her family toward the true meaning of Christmas. Aria exits the family's solstice celebration that includes her father's pregnant fiance and runs off to Atlantic City to marry an eco-terrorist. Spencer joins her estranged sister in revenge against a star tennis player they both tried to win. Mystery A's musings link the four stories, reflect on the girls' actions, and promise their demise in forthcoming sequels. This volume will please loyal Pretty Little Liars fans and draw new ones as the characters dish about their feelings and previous exploits and then open themselves to more mayhem and disgrace. The short chapters provide entertainment for reluctant and escapist readers. A continued focus on characters whose unlimited resources and meager values explode their lives may provide a comforting view of a social class we might otherwise envy. If the previous books are flying off the shelves, your collection will need this one too. Reviewer: Lucy Schall

This was a very good book! For those wondering,thus is going back to Junior Year. This is explaining things that they talk about but have never explained. I believe Sara is releasing a new book soon. Which will resume bact to Senior Year and talk about issues from Ruthless. Unfortunatly there is only 2 new books relasing. That is supposed to be it but the series hopefully goes on for thise PLL lovers who just can't get enough. And PLL has resumed season two which is on Mondays on ABC Family 8/9 Central The Lying Game ( Another Sara Shepard series) Is on right after at 9/10 Central -- Thanks

This is just kimd of like a bonus book to the series. It doesnt count as any of the 12 in the actual series. This one rewinds back to the winter between the 4 and 5 book. Its just a bonus one. Its pretty much like the other ones.

I thought this book was a decent read although as I'm quite aware of the whole synopsis of Aria, Emily, Hanna and Spencer being stalked constantly reading all 10 books of the series (11 including this spin-off), it still bothers me how outlandish it is for "A" to be in all of these places just when their lives start to take an "interesting" spin. Like I caught myself laughing a little to myself because when Spencer kept hearing "a faint giggling" while she was in Florida and then when Aria kept hearing the same thing while she was out in Atlantic City with her eco-terrorist of a husband I'm like "Wow !! "A" really must be stinkin rich and a big loser with no life to buy plane tickets to stalk her ex-best friends" Talk about stalking status to the absolute M A X !!! Overall, this book was interesting to see their secrets just keep getting juicier and juicier but what I appreciated and enjoyed from this book is that they all was able to fix their problems before it got too out of hand and they did it on their own cost without the infamous "A" airing their dirty laundry out for them.

I have loved all of the pretty little liars i'm on the third one and so far their great can't wait to read the 4th one when me and my friend saw it at the store we were freaking out we kept on begging but we didn't get so i'm still begging. The shows are great to but i don't like how Maya is different in different seasons. Sometimes i get to caught up and don't do my homework and get grounded! GET THE BOOK AND ENJOY IT PLEASE. I know what you did last night so get the book and don't do the wrong choice Don! Don! Don! -A

Sara Shepard is such an amazing writer. This series has 15 books so far and she keeps releasing more. In all the other books, each chapter is about a different girl in the book. In this book, she wrote about one girl at a time and made it into four different sections.

R U MENTAL THIS IS THE BEST SERIES I HAVE EVA READ!!!!!
Iolaniny More than 1 year ago
This was a fantastic book! This book is the tenth of the series, all the books are extremely intriguing, fun and interesting to read. By writing through the perspective of each of the four main characters, Spencer, Emily, Aria and Hanna, the author gives you a look into the life of the four different girls. It's appealing to high school girls around the same age because of the similarities in life. Though the book might appear as a dramatic teenage girl book, it also follows the plot line of the murder of the girl's murdered best friend Alison. While dealing with a teenage girl life, dealing with the death of a loved one, the girls are constantly tormented with the truths about their scandalous lives. As the book becomes more and more exciting, the author reveals secrets about the girls no one would ever expect. Though the characters share many deadly secrets, they all also possess their own dirty tales that they wish to forget and move past. As the series builds, the girls accumulate awful experiences as they still try to figure out the murder of their best friend. This book is an easy read and appealing to people of all age and gender. With a long series, you are constantly left anxious and craving more.

This one is simply too boring. Since nothing ever happens with "A" it's just telling about how the girls do stupid stuff and "A" sees it. But it seems really pointless because obviously none of this stuff shows up in the other books since it was written afterward. I still love the rest of the series and I really like the last one that tells the story from "Ali/Courtney's" point of view!

In this book, Aria Montgomery, Emily Fields, Spencer Hastings, and Hanna Marin are on Christmas vacation in Rosewood. A may be dead, but little do the girls know, there’s a new A in town. While their Christmas vacation may be fun filled and snowy, A is always watching them. While Hanna’s boyfriend is out of town, A catches her purging on food after she eats it, and Emily is stuck being the new Santa at the mall because she needs to catch mischievous girls in the act of their thieving. Aria elopes over vacation with her ex-boyfriend Hallbjourn from Iceland. Little does she know, he has secrets too. Spencer meets a 30 year old tennis player who she falls for immediately. Melissa and Spencer fight over the boy, but in the end they both lose. This book is extremely good, and really builds up suspense. I absolutely admire the work of Sara Shepard, and if you read this book, you will not be disappointed! -SCHS Reader

These pretty little liars really have it in for them this time. They just get naughtier and naughtier and little ol' me is watching from a distance.. a very close distance. Hanna may have the slightest bit of common sense, Aria may have been born with an open mind, Emily may know how to use her brain and Spencer being vali- opps! I meam co-validictorian, you'd think they learned their lesson. Have fun girls... while you still can. -A

I read this after having read the whole series up to "Deadly" and i think you can read all of the books while skipping this one and it won't affect your understanding of them. Each girl's story is a little too dramatic, mainly Aria's and it kind of takes away the realistic feeling of the books which is what I like so much about them. So it's a good book, but strays too far from the plot of the series for my taste.
