pretty little liars #2

In the exclusive town of Rosewood, Pennsylvania, where the sweetest smiles hid the darkest secrets, four pretty little liars - Spencer, Aria, Emily and Hanna - have been very bad girls...

Spencer stole her sister's boyfriend.  Aria is brokenhearted over her English teacher.  Emily likes her new friend 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.

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 ultra-conservative 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.


I'm torn between knowing who A is and not.  If we find out that would mean that the series would be over, right?  And we know it's not because there's 14 books in the series (I think).  But not knowing is driving me CRAZY!!

And every time I think I have a handle on who I like and who I don't the tables get turned and something else about one of the girls reveals itself.

I will say that one of the things that kind of bugs me is the drama queen-ness of some of the parents.  I'm sure that there's parents out there like these, but all in one place in one group of friends?  And it kind of bugs me that the girls aren't friends anymore, but with secrets as big as they have I guess that's kind of expected.  Now though it seems maybe they've come together and are seeing each other as their allies.  Though with 12 books left who knows what will happen!
