Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard

Rosewood, Pennsylvania is the ideal suburban neighborhood. The houses are all old and beautiful, oh and cost mega dollars! In this perfect neighborhood live five best friends. Ali, Spencer, Emily, Aria, and Hanna. They've been friends since the seventh grade and have been through it all. They have all the classic inside jokes as any normal circle of friends would have, but these girls have a nasty secret that they all share. It involves a terrible accident that happened to the girls' neighbor. All changed the last day of seventh grade when Ali went missing. Rosewood was sent into a whirlwind panic and police were everywhere. Ali is never found and the girls continue on with their lives and eventually drift apart. Now all the girls are juniors in high school and the gap between them has never been as big. Spencer is your typical over-achiever. She is always volunteering for something or catching up on her SAT vocab. Aria has just returned from Iceland and is determined to show everyone that she isn't the girl who's best friend dissapeared, especially her new English teacher who is just absolutely yummy. Emily is an all-star swimmer with a hot swimmer boyfriend, but when new girl Maya moves into town Emily questions her swimming future and her dating future. Hanna is the "it girl." She has the body (through much hard work), boyfriend, and style, but things start looking down when Hanna can't help but be a bad girl. The girls continue on without each other but little do they know they will all be reunited again. Coincidentally all of them are being contacted by someone by the name of A. A knows all their secrets, whether they are new or from many years ago. Who could A be? Could it be Ali who disappeared so long ago?

Pretty Little Liars is the book for any girl who loves drama. It is filled with juicy scandalous secrets, and more drama than could ever go on in anyone's life. With every page turn new questions popped into my head. Who could A be? What was the terrible accident that plagues the girls? None of these questions are answered, but don't fear there are two sequels already published - the fourth arrives in April and there are said to be a total of eight. I was sucked in from the get go and couldn't put this book down until I was finished. Any girl looking for a light read will enjoy this book!

This is the second book for my 1st in a series challenge. I going to have to put the challenge on hold though so I can read the other two books - Flawless and Perfect - because I am definitely hooked!
