Spencer stole her sister's boyfriend. Aria is brokenhearted over her English teacher. Emily likes her new friend Maya . . . as much more than a friend. Hanna's obsession with looking flawless is making her sick. And their most horrible secret yet is so scandalous that the truth would ruin them forever.
And why shouldn't I tell? They deserve to lose it all. With every crumpled note, wicked IM, and vindictive text message I send, I'll be taking these pretty little liars down. Trust me, I've got enough dirt to bury them alive.
I love the way Sara Shepard makes it seem like A is talking directly at you. I love the way it ended, not exactly the end of the story but literally the end once it goes through "About the author" then there is a "What is next..." and suddenly A is there telling you it isn't over and giving you hints of what is next to come, it is creepy in a way that I can't help but wanting more of A. At certain points I felt the story wasn't getting anywhere but then I was sucked into it all over again.
Spencer: She is the all A's, everything should be perfect girl and she seems to have a bit of trouble staying away from her sister's boyfriends. I don't dislike her for it though, I don't necessarily believe it's her fault and I have to admit I really dislike her sister.
Hanna: She does some "not so pretty" things to stay fabulous or should i say flawless. I understand why she does the things she does, both her parents have trouble communicating with their daughter. She also has an issue with her father who is getting married again. Hanna finally gets to see her father again after a couple of years but is having some trouble getting his full attention.
Aria: Her family is falling apart. Aria is now into another boy. In my opinion, Aria should stay away from her friend's ex-boyfriends (yes i said it) and should go back with her English teacher, that was my favorite part of the story and now its is gone... at least for now.
Emily: Sweet, innocent Emily can't stop thinking about her friend Maya, more like girls in general. Emily is also getting involved with who is believed to be dangerous and most likely Allison's murderer. I believe Emily should follow her heart and for her new guy "friend", she should give him a chance or maybe she should even... run?
I do feel sorry for Spencer, Hanna, Aria and Emily but i can't help myself from loving the chaos they are in. They are a complete train wreck and I'M LOVIN' IT!
