Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for Pretty Little Liars: “An intriguing tale full of provocative exploits and adventure…It will not disappoint the fans.” (Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA))

“Shepard writes a suspenseful page–turner that will have teens thirsting for more.” (School Library Journal)

“Expect this teenage soap opera to fly off the shelves.” (Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA))

From the Back Cover

Before there was A, there was Alison DiLaurentis. Boys wanted to date her, girls wanted to be her, and somebody wanted her dead. . . .

It's the end of seventh grade, and Alison DiLaurentis and her friends are the girls of Rosewood Day. Ali runs her clique with an iron fist, and she's got enough dirt on Hanna, Emily, Aria, and Spencer to keep them in line. But Ali's hiding a dark secret of her own, something so huge it would destroy everything if it ever got out. She's desperate to keep the perfect life she's worked so hard to build, but in Rosewood deadly secrets have deadly consequences. . . .

Set in the weeks leading up to Ali's murder, this special Pretty Little Liars tale is told by the prettiest little liar of all: Ali herself. For the first time ever, we see how the mystery began . . . and how Alison DiLaurentis's life ended.


More About the Author

Hello! I'm from outside Philadelphia, lived in New York for a long time, Arizona for less time, and now I'm in Pittsburgh, PA, which is way nicer than it sounds.

I've always been a writer. I made up stories about my sister's blanket, BeeBee, when I was four. From there I wrote about squareheaded creatures, an environmental saga about little yellow men who live in vegetable gardens, teenage dramas well before I was a teenager, a book series about a Japanese girl who finds out her ancestors are samaurai (and she must be one, too), a bunch of arty short stories, and some books that maybe you've heard of. The PRETTY LITTLE LIARS series is based on my experiences there...kind of. Sort of a hyperbolic version of them. Plus some random stuff thrown in.

I've also written THE LYING GAME, which is about a dead twin and an alive twin, THE HEIRESSES, which is about a rich family's curse, and THE PERFECTIONISTS, which is about five somewhat strangers who get everything they wanted...but that comes at a price. I wrote THE VISIBLES, which is about jackalopes and mental illness, and EVERYTHING WE EVER WANTED, which features a guy who discovers his ex lives on a commune.

This is a great companion to the book series but don't read it until after you read book 8.

All of the girls think that this is the real Ali, and will do anything for her.

Let me just start of by saying, this is a fantastic read! If you've read all the Pretty Little Liar's books to date, then there aren't any spoilers But, you need to have read them all.

This is the back story of Allison and Courtney, twins. Both girls were best of friends when they were younger. Something happened to drive them apart. One of the twins overtakes the others identity, and becomes them and live their life as them. However, as life proves, nothing really goes according to plan. Courtney lives Alison's life as Alison. To make sure things go off without a hitch, Courtney dumps all of Ali's friends, and strike up friendships with Aria, Spencer, Hanna and Emily. All of the girls think that this is the real Ali, and will do anything for her. Courtney has it all figured out, well, most of it. She didn't plan on one thing happening. Someone knows what Courtney did, and won't let her get away with it.

What I really liked about this is that at times Courtney was a sympathetic character, and at times we root against her. We get to see Courtney having doubts at what she is doing, and how she is treating Aria, Spencer, Hanna and Emily. Then at other times, she rules her friends with an iron first. She knows all of their secrets, and uses them as weapons against the Pretty Little Liars and controls them. She actually gets offend whey they don't tell her things. She feels she entitled to know everything about them. It really was interesting.

We also see the same scenes in the past books, but from a different point of view. There are also somethings in this book that clears up some of the factors in previous books. I don't' want to go into detail, because I don't want to spoil anything. Let's just say that it was an interesting read.

Although its not officially in the series its finally nice to see who Courtney Dilaurentis really was. Everybody thinks she's a cold shell, but really she's just troubled.

A very talented writer has chosen to use her talent in a way that I don't approve of. This book seems to be written for teenagers or young adults, and I think she has crossed the line in the area of sexual references. I would never want a child of mine to read this book. In my opinion, it is very shallow and worldly. I feel like it encourages our youth to be self-serving. I believe there are enough youth amongst us that believe the world revolves around them. I was very disappointed. I would like to see this extremely talented author leave a very different mark on the world.

I really enjoyed reading this book; however saying that, this book did not make me like Ali's character any better than I did before. At least, I finally understood why she was so mean to her best friends and everyone else, but honestly, there really wasn't any excuses for her actions. This was a nice quick book to read that delved deeper into the series and I do see it as a significant book to be read. I wish I would have read it later though, because now I know Ali's true killer.
