Ava, Caitlin, Mackenzie, Julie, and Parker are all driven to be perfect--no matter the cost. At first the girls think they have nothing in common, until they discover that they all hate the same person: handsome womanizer Nolan Hotchkiss, who's done things to hurt each of them. They come up with the perfect plan to murder Nolan--jokingly, of course. They'd never actually go through with it. But when Nolan turns up dead in the exact way they'd discussed, the girls suddenly become prime suspects in his murder. Only, they didn't do it. So who did? Unless they find the real killer, and soon, their perfect lives will come crashing down around them.… (lisätietoja)

Better than the majority of the PLL series. ( )

Sara Shepard is my brain-numbing queen. She's so easy to read and, for me, it's so easy to get interested in the story without necessarily getting invested in anything or anyone.

So this was pretty fine. I tore through it in two days, and I always like seeing what nonsense will happen even if it is all derivative of the same thing...backstab. kiss the wrong boy. backstab. hide a petty secret. kiss the wrong boy again. kiss TWO WRONG BOYS. The girls this time are nicer and quieter, and honestly at a point reading Shepard's books isn't even about what cool character choice she'll make or what theme she'll bring up, it's just like, how much more of a delightful tangled drama mess can she create. (And how many boys can she make who are carbon copies of each other because at this point it's A LOT.) It's just a game of instant gratification.

But I think if I need another dose of her I'll stick to the trillion PLL books that overstayed their welcome. I know those gals and I liked how the drama compounded. I don't really look to them to...feel anything for the characters, or expect to see them grow or anything. Starting a new series from her really highlighted that for me - I wanna see how they get deeper, not how they get out, because I'm not bothered if they DON'T get out.

(Also I never noticed how unprofessionally she writes cops/authority. Like the cops all acting like smarmy teen boys and spilled all their case details to give the protags a SICK BURN.)

Anyway! I have the sequel here with me so I'll see! There's still something that always draws my eye to her candy-bright covers and snappy slogans when I just need a tense contemporary to turn my brain off! ( )

I picked this up thinking that it was a stand-alone novel, which excited me because I like Sara Shepard's books but struggle a lot with series that don't have self-contained books. Of course, it turns out that this is the first book in a new series--so much for that moment of excitement ;)

Anyway, this is just the kind of book you expect from Shepard. There's a group of girls who seem like they have it all, but who are all hiding various secrets and imperfections. And then there's a mystery that needs to be solved, complete with twists and a thousand people with motives.

I enjoyed it and I'll definitely look out for the next book in the series, but wow, I think this is the most unfinished of the books of Shepard's that I've read. It ends with the key suspect being killed off, thus leaving everything completely in the air, with all of the girls' lives unravelling and no closure whatsoever. Ah well, it's a good tactic to make me read the next book ;p ( )

A knock off of her Pretty Little Liars series, Sara Shepard has done it again! This book is riveting from beginning to end and I can't wait for the next one.

From a school bully to a pervert teacher, these 5 girls have a lot of stress in their lives. And then the bully is dead and in the end, so is the teacher. Someone is setting the girls up, but who? Will they lose everything in the process of finding the killer? Everything they have worked so hard to have? And to hide?

I read this book because I just marathoned Pretty Little Liars on Netflix and heard this is getting a PLL-connected spin off.

A group of girls who all hate Nolan got to talking one day in class about taking revenge on him. It wasn’t totally random, the class itself kind of inspired the conversation. Plus, it seems like everyone hated Nolan for one reason or another. He did bad things to a lot of people with varying degrees of bad consequences. Long story short, there are a lot of people who would be happy to never cross paths with Nolan again.

But the girls had been planning a much more innocent revenge than murder. They planned to get him drunk/drugged and take embarrassing pictures of him.

But Nolan dies the same night and eye witnesses start to report who he was last seen with. Despite the girls seeming pretty innocent from their story, they know they might sound guilty if they go to the cops. Plus, they think someone might have overheard their conversation in class and be framing them.

In addition, each girl has a secret of two that they’re afraid will come to light.

I liked the story but it definitely is entirely built up to a cliffhanger to start book number two. I’m ok with that, I was expecting it. I’m definitely going to suggest that you buy both books together or you’ll be left hanging at the end of this book.

I think I’ll have a better idea how much I enjoyed the story after finishing the second part. ( )
