A debut novel about four best friends and the secrets they are trying to hide from each other. ' More glamour and intrigue than the OC' Elle
Aria, Emily, Spencer, Hanna and Alison have been best friends since the third grade. They go everywhere together, thinking no-one can come between them. If anyone is the ringleader of the group it is Alison, and the other girls cannot help but confide all their secrets to her.
One night, during a sleepover, Alison goes missing. Her body is never found. The girls mourn her death but move apart after time, assuming their secrets have disappeared with Alison too.
Three years later and Aria is having an affair with her teacher; Emily is questioning her sexuality; Hanna is a thief; and Spencer is flirting with her sister's fiance. They all think their secrets are safe, until they starting receiving messages from the mysterious A - who knows exactly what they are all up to, and is threatening to spill the beans . . .

Pretty Little Liars was first release back in 2006, but has just gained a widespread success after the television series by the same name came out recently. There are eight books in the series, so with the rerelease of these books I can see it being a high seller.

The story is about a group of school girls that have a very close knit relationship until one night before the start of year eight, when they have a sleepover and Ali disappears after a fight with Spencer. The group falls apart and each girl goes their separate way until Ali reappears after three years.

This is where the fun begins and all of the girl’s secrets are threatened to be exposed by a mysterious person known as A.

If you loved the series then you’ll really enjoy this book.
