My review for Pretty Little Liars:
I give Pretty Little Liars 4 stars. This story is pretty crazy with all the twists and turns it takes. The story is about 4 girls, who are in their Junior year in high school. There were originally 5 best friends, and the 4 girls always told their secrets to Ali only and not each other. The girls were all best friends at one point until in seventh the person who held the group together, Ali, went missing. Three years have past since then and all the girls seemed to change. Hanna is much skinnier than she was in seventh grade, and she starts becoming rebellious with the way she shops. How did she get skinny? Will she get in trouble if she gets caught? What’s her secret? Emily is on the swim team whose boyfriend is in there too, but when a new girl comes to town and starts living in Ali’s house Emily starts questioning herself and what she wants. How will she deal with this and what will she do? What’s her secret? Spencer is an A+ student, volunteers, and does all she can and won’t settle for less. She tries to one up her older sister Melissa, but always falls short. The only difference between Melissa and Spencer is that all of Melissa’s boyfriends become more interested in Spencer. What will happen if her family finds out? What’s her secret? Finally, there’s Aria. After Ali’s death, Aria and her family travel to Iceland where she has completely changed. When she returns to Rosewood, she is this gorgeous looking girl with many talents that most teenage girls don’t have. She likes to go to the bar when she’s feeling uptight, and that’s when she meets Ezra. But Ezra is someone that would be difficult to have a relationship with. Why? So what’s her secret? All the girls get text messages and IMs that say that their secrets will be told if they’re not careful and each message is from a person signed with –A. Could it be Ali or is it someone else? Is Ali still alive, but only missing? Will the girls come together and work together to figure out who is harassing them?
