Killer by Sara Shepard

My very first review, I'm too excited!

Summary from front book flap

In picture-perfect Rosewood, Pennsylvania, ash-blond highlights gleam in the winter sun and frozen lakes sparkle like Swarovski crystals. But pictures often lie—and so do Rosewood's four prettiest girls.

Hanna, Aria, Spencer, and Emily have been lying ever since they became friends with beautiful Alison DiLaurentis. Ali made them do terrible things—things they had to keep secret for years. And even though Ali was killed at the end of seventh grade, their bad-girl ways didn't die with her.

Hanna's on a mission to corrupt Rosewood's youth, starting with a very attractive sophomore. Aria's snooping into her boyfriend's past. Spencer's stealing—from her family. And pure little Emily's abstaining from abstinence.

The girls should be careful, though. They thought they were safe when Ali's killer was arrested and A's true identity was finally revealed. But now there's a new A in town turning up the heat. And this time Rosewood is going to burn.


I could not put it down. I read it everywhere to the point where I was tripping over myself, even if some aspects bothered me. The lack of communication between A and the girls is less than it was in the previous books. A appeared for the first time in chapter nine for goodness sakes! When I got over that, the book was better since all the girls are in different situations. And it's been a while since I've read the last book, Wicked, so Emily's boyfriend Isaac didn't make too much sense to me. He seemed out of place at first. But the best part for me were Hanna's chapters; I never liked jealous competition so much. Now it's time to wait for Heartless, coming January 2010. I am loving the pink with the Emily doll, which means the last book has to have Spencer. Or Ali? That'll be a shocker!

I do recommend the Pretty Little Liars series. Just don't spoil them like I do everytime.
