Version Reviewed: Finished, Paperback
I purchased this book myself.
Spencer stole her sister's boyfriend. Aria is brokenhearted over her English teacher. Emily likes her new friend Maya . . . as much more than a friend. And Hanna's obsession with looking flawless is literally making her sick. But the most horrible secret of all is something so scandalous it could destroy their perfect little lives.Review:
And someone named "A" is threatening to do just that.
At first they thought A was Alison, their friend who vanished three years ago . . . but then Alison turned up dead. So could A be Melissa, Spencer's ultracompetitive sister? Or Maya, who wants Emily all to herself? What about Toby, the mysterious guy who left town right after Alison went missing?
One thing's for certain: A's got the dirt to bury them all alive, and with every crumpled note, wicked IM, and vindictive text message A sends, the girls get a little closer to losing it all.
*This review was originally written in 2014 but was never posted.
Starting this book, I wasn't sure how it was going to go or what was going to happen. I'm a really big fan of the television show but I'm aware that the majority of the time, the shows stray drastically from the books. A lot of it was the same but still different. There were a few things that threw me for a loop. Events that I didn't expect to happen, or at least not so soon.
I really like Toby's character on the show so I was excited when I realized that he played a larger role in Flawless. I think the book was well written and the characters have their own distinctive personalites, something that I think is kind of hard to pull off when there are so many different voices in one book.
I'm really excited to see where the series goes from here and I can't wait to read the next book. I really wish I had picked up Pretty Little Liars sooner.
Rating: 4 Stars.
Character: Hannah and Toby.
