In a town where gossip thrives like the ivy that clings to its mansions, where mysteries lie behind manicured hedges and skeletons hide in every walk-in closet, four perfect-looking girls aren't nearly as perfect as they seem.
Three years ago, Spencer, Aria, Emily, Hanna, and their best friend Alison were the girls at Rosewood Day School. They clicked through the halls in their Miu Miu flats, tanned in their matching Pucci bikinis, and laughed behind their freshly manicured fingernails. They were the girls everyone loved but secretly hated—especially Alison.
So when Alison mysteriously vanished one night, Spencer, Aria, Emily, and Hanna's grief was tinged with . . . relief. And when Alison's body was later discovered in her own backyard, the girls were forced to unearth some ugly memories of their old friend, too. Could there be more to Alison's death than anyone realizes?
Now someone named A, someone who seems to know everything, is pointing the finger at one of them for Ali's murder. As their secrets get darker and their scandals turn deadly, A is poised to ruin their perfect little lives forever.
This would definitley have to be my favourite book in the series along with the 9th book that has just been released I loved this book so much and ended up finishing it in a couple of hours the first time I read it, I couldn't put it down.
First off the plot. The plot in this book was so fast-paced and suspenseful I couldn't stop reading and before I knew it I was half way through and then the book was over. Everything happens in this book and I think that is what makes it such an faced and enjoyable book to read and the book ends on a great cliff-hanger!
Next the characters. I thought that you got to see a whole lot more emotion from the characters in this book and I found that I felt like I could relate to the characters a whole lot more and I felt that I knew the characters a whole lot more aswell.
Overall I thought this book was really great and definitley worth the read.
