Teen SRC 2018 – Perfect: A Pretty Little Liars Book

Perfect: A Pretty Little Liars book is written by Sara Shepard

The third book in the Pretty Little Liars Book, the story picks up from where it last stopped. A continues to send threatening messages, planning to expose Alison DiLaurentis best friends for their secrets which were supposed to die with Alison. Spencer’s parents send her to her therapy, thinking it will help her feel better with all of the mysterious deaths happening around. Hanna wants to improve her relationship with her friend, at the same time look good in everything she wears. Aria wants to improve her relationship with her mom and her English A.P teacher Mr. Fitz. Emily wants to redeem herself in her parent’s eyes, by being the swim team captain and stepping in line with the family. Will the four Girls find out who is this mysterious A or will they be exposed, one by one?

This was a great book. I would rate this book a 5/5. I would recommend this book to people who enjoy reading about drama, mystery, and thriller. This book had a good plot and I liked that it was written in the perspective of all four girls. This helped unreel the story bit by bit.

Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard

Reading this novel was quite the struggle — not in a bad way, but in the exact way I was hoping for. *Spoiler Ahead* Upon finding the cheating sister or the shoplifting bad girl, I couldn’t help but want to smash my face into my desk or holler out loud, because I simply couldn’t see these girls as real girls. For example, a girl in the novel who was a straight-A student ended up cheating with her sister’s boyfriend which I found was quite unbelievable because for a student to have achieved such good grades shouldn’t that person be tenacious enough to resist such temptations? The author was clearly setting up this situation so the girl would earn the right of being called a “drama girl”, which apparently every girl in this book had to be. In a book like “Pretty Little Liars”, there is no girl whose background is not filled with mystery and drama. Everyone is so shallow impulsive that I thought for a split second that none of them have an actual functioning brain. In a nutshell, in a city where drama is stirring, four ex-friends receive a couple text messages each about the murder of their fifth ex-friend including some blackmail. And because none of them have an actual functioning brain, the author is able to write an infinite number of sequels as well as prequels. Since it did deliver what I was hoping for though, I would give this novel an A or mystery text messenger A.

 

Teen SRC 2018 – Ali’s Pretty Little Lies

 

Ali’s Pretty Little Lies by Sara Shepard

Ali’s Pretty Little Lies is written by Sara Shepard and is the prequel to the Pretty Little Liars Secret. Even before Alison DiLaurentis disappeared mysteriously. Alison’s life was perfect. Everyone loved her. She was the ‘It’ girl. She had it all. Until her whole life came down to this one lie. Scared, Alison manipulates her “friends” into unleashing their deepest and darkest secrets. Scared of the consequences one lie becomes another until it ended her life permanently.

This book was a good read, however even though this book is a prequel, it is best to read once you are finished reading the Pretty Little Liars full book series, as it had all these hidden things that will spoil the rest of the book. I would rate this book 4.5/5 as the plot was great. It was good to finally find out what happens inside Alison’s head, as the books in the PLL series are told from the perspective of Ali’s friends. As the story progressed, the plot was very slow. Overall it was a quick read.
