PERFECT starts out with a flashback to a time when Ali was still alive and part of the group. Ali receives a phone call but doesn't share with Spencer, Hanna, Aria, or Emily. But that's kind of how it's always been. Ali was always the leader. Playing the girls off each other and keeping secrets on each of them.

Now, Ali is supposedly dead and the girls have all gone their own way.

Spencer has been nominated for the Golden Orchid. It's only the most prestigious essay contest in the country. The only glitch...no one knows that it's an essay that Spencer stole off her sister's computer one night when she didn't complete an assignment.

Aria is still secretly crushing on Ezra, her teacher. When they first met, Aria didn't know Ezra was going to be a new teacher at Rosewood. There was an instant connection, but so far they've been good about not acting on those feelings.

Hanna has had a major falling out with her now best friend, Mona. This has caused Hanna to resort to overindulging with food again.

And Emily. Well, she doesn't want to be on the swim team anymore. And she does want to date her friend Maya, but knows how violently her family would react to that news.

All four girls are still getting cryptic messages from the unknown "A." Who can possibly know all of their secrets, the ones that only Ali knew? As the messages keep coming, each girl gets tangled up in a web of her own creation.

A cliffhanger involving the remaining girls leaves the reader ready for the next installment of the PRETTY LITTLE LIARS series, UNBELIEVABLE, due out in May 2008. I picked up the first book in the series on a whim the fall of 2007. I kept being drawn to the cover. I sat down and quickly devoured the first story. From there, I was hooked.

The twisted lives of these girls at Rosewood are enough to keep anyone coming back for more!

Of course you would think Toby is me. Hahaha! So funny. Sadly, it drove him CRAZY and he just HAD to take those pills... I'm still out there! Spencer, Spencer. Be careful what you do. Let me know how Melissa is doing. Remember, stairs are hard! Especially when your pushed down them! Hahaha! Hanna? Can you here me? HANNA! oh I forgot. Your unconcious. Should've ran from the car! Oh yeah, MY CAR! Emily, I hope your happy. All I can say is Maya will miss you! Have fun eating cheerios for breakfast...EVERY MORNING! And Aria, You and Fitz. Well, I hope you get an A in that class...and after school too! Hahaha! I'm still out there! YOU WILL NEVER FIND ME! so watch out. Because not even locking doors stops me! -A

Perfection. It's what all the girls in Rosewood are—or, at least, what they're SUPPOSED to be. All Aria wants it Ezra: and the feeling is definitely mutual; Hanna better watch her back if she wants to keep her super-popular best friend, even though, sometimes, she really CAN be quite b****y; Emily's pretty confident now about what gender she likes—but now the question is, Do her parents dislike her feelings?; And Spencer? Well, she's always had SUCH a competetive side to her when it came to her sibling—but she SURE is stealing a lot of property that belongs to MELISSA Hastings. And, to add to all of this drama, A's notes just keep coming....but Perfect will end with a dramatic, suspenseful event. Because one of these Pretty Little Liars knew just a little too much.

I love these books! Truly amazing and keep me flipping the pages wanting to know what happens next! The characters are so different and the story is just so well written, and assosiated with modern day, though I may only bein 6 th grade this probaly isn't the book for younger kids.

This series is incredible! I love and hate how A always leaves a little freaky note with a ahint at the end! If you are going to read this series, pay attention a lot or reread it because after the Ackknowlagdements at the end, there's a little hint at the end of this book that gave ait away... if you have read the first two, think Mwah, Mwah! And you should have a good idea of it. So psyched for the next book!!!!

So far I have read 3 out of the 14 Pretty Little Liars books. This series is great for kids just like me in junior high or high school. I myself like the book series much better than the television show series. I am defiantly going to keep on watching the show and reading the books. The books are different than the television show, for example Toby commits suicide in the second book, but he does not do that i the show. There have also been rumors going around that A in the book. So overall I recommend to anyone that likes a good murder mystery with a little drama.

The cover: This is by far my favorite cover :). I love the colors and the doll ^_^. What I loved: - The storyline is so different from the others and also, at the same time somewhat familiar (since I watched the episodes to the mid season finale…*_*). It had some intriguing details and storylines for each girl. - The twists, mystery and thriller! I kept looking and wondering and trying to solve each new puzzle, SMS and chapter’s title! - This book could be scary if you read it at night (or actually listened to it at night). - I don’t know if I just realized it or if it has been this way since book one. But I think the writing is much much better than before. - I loved both the main and secondary characters and how they had different personalities that added to the storyline. Each character in this book had something to do and it had a long lasting effect. - Aria, Spencer, Emily and Hanna are finally a tiny bit close. They try to talk to each other discuss everything “A” related. It a huge accomplishment, if you read the previous two books you know what I mean! - And then there was the ending!! I had no idea it was going to happen like that in the book and also it left me asking a billion questions!! What I disliked: Nothing really. The audiobook: The audiobook was amazing! The narrator did a great job of impersonating each characters, especially the girls, and the way she spoke in those scary moments, it made me feel like I’m being watched too!!! If you’re not sure whether you should read the books or you don’t have the time, I highly suggest you get the audiobook version. It’s amazing! Conclusion: Finally, I’m at peace, even for sometimes, in my brain that I could read and enjoy this book :). This book is that good! I’m really excited to continue reading ^_^. Now to continue with the series ;).

The Best Mystery Ever My fingers were yearning to this book wow. the author truley out did her self. This book was truley amazing. The way she wrote the book, the plot, the scandles, its a book thats one of a kind. The suspence the erge to know whats gonna happen next happens in the book. 5 best friends, and when one mysteriously is murdered, and all 4 friends gets mysterious texts from there suposed "dead best friend whos body was found" thrills, emotions and scandles arise.

A great series with some suspense but with a YA twist. To review this series, I am going to group the books in sets of 3. As I think, that reviewing each book may be a little excessive. Reading a series basically in a row - I have a fear that there will be reptition in the story as the author tries to remind the reader what happened in previous books. My thoughts in regards to this series, yes there is repeating of facts in each book, but not to an extreme. As I read them one after another, I was a little annoyed, but if I had read them with space in between it probably wouldn't have hurt to be reminded of some of the events that occured in previous books. These characters are funny and endearing - I grew to love them and hate them all at the same time. Each one was unique, but I could really see Ali as the glue that kept all these girls connected. As the books continued I loved trying my hand at figuring out not only who A was, but also who the killer was. At the close of book 3, I had some thoughts, but my guesses were less than educated! I would recommend this series to young and old alike - a great summer read. I have enjoyed going from one book to the next trying to find out the who dun its and their motives. I have unofficially decided to read one easy YA series or set of books each summer, so last year was Gossip Girl and this year it was Pretty Little Liars.

I actually have not read the first two books in the series and started out with this one. I read this book in one day! Its one of the best books ever!! The characters are great and luckily, i could jump into this book and not be confused! So that means that even though i didn't read the first or second book, i wasn't really confused. This book is fantastic and everyone teen girl should read it!
