Ali’s Pretty Little Lies

Ali’s Pretty Little Lies is another book in a long line of Pretty Little Liars novels written by Sara Shepard. So far, this marks the 14th book in the whole series, whoo! The whole sequel begins with five girls coming together for a sleepover. Ali, Spencer, Hannah, Emily, and Aria are celebrating the beginning of summer break with a girl’s night out. Ali is the queen bee of the group, and dictates most of the festivities. The girls share secrets and play games, eventually they fall asleep. The next morning Alison is gone, and that is the last the four friends see or hear of her. Until four years later, they start getting harassing messages from somebody named A. Their secrets start to expose themselves, and their dead friend’s body is found.

What makes this different from the other books in the series, is that it is written from Ali’s perspective. As you read the book, you can understand why Alison acts the way she does up until her murder. You start to find out more and more clues until the the end of the book comes with a cliffhanger. To tell you the truth, I am not a big fan of the book series, I feel like the same plot, from the first book, keeps getting repeated in the rest of the series. There are so many false clues, and dead ends, that when I found out who A actually was, I didn’t take it seriously. I literally brushed it off, and thought that the character reveal was going nowhere. Despite that, Sara Shepard does a good job of holding the audience’s attention, and weaving a good mystery plot (Even though it tends to turn into a soap opera). If you are looking for a book filled with secrets, shocking truths, and suspicious people, the series and this book is a good match for you.
