Rate this:
Ava, Caitlin, Mackenzie, Julie, and Parker are all driven to be perfect--no matter the cost. At first the girls think they have nothing in common, until they discover that they all hate the same person: handsome womanizer Nolan Hotchkiss, who's done things to hurt each of them. They come up with the perfect plan to murder Nolan--jokingly, of course. They'd never actually go through with it. But when Nolan turns up dead in the exact way they'd discussed, the girls suddenly become prime suspects in his murder. Only, they didn't do it. So who did? Unless they find the real killer, and soon, their perfect lives will come crashing down around them.

The Perfectionists is a terrific read! With the new TV series airing this season on FreeForm, the book will provide the audience of Pretty Little Liars with a new story from Sara Shepard. I'm excited to see how the book matches the show.

I guess this is similar to pretty little liars, but it is also entirely different and on its own. Five girls who all hate this one boy... one day find out that he is dead. Like... actually dead. He can no longer torment any of them. But what if they hadn't ever imagined this to happen? Intended this to happen? Could they have done something to result in his death. As the prime suspects, each girl must face her own demons, while trying to uncover the truth behind the tragedy that left them all shocked. Overall, it was pretty great. I still liked this author's The Lying Game Series better, but it is still worth a read! 5/5 stars

Another good book from Sara Shepard. Action and drama packed. I was always interested!

This book is so good!!! Do not let the similar sounding plot to PLL fool you. I read this book in one day staying up extremely late to finish it because I could not put it down. Waiting for Good Girls is going to be painfully long because I need to know what happens next.

I read this book when it just came out, I wasn't expecting much from it because the plot sounded so much like PLL (which I love, but thought it would get a bit repetitive). Well, I was blown away, Sara Shepard still managed to amaze me!

Does anyone know any other books like this other than Sara Shepard books?
This book was very engaging and had lots of twists while still holding true to the high school drama that Shepard portrays in PLL and The Lying Game. It leaves you waiting anxiously to read the next installment.

At first I thought that having to follow the story lines of five protagonists would be a bit confusing, but Shepard gives each character such a distinctive personality, making the plot rich and enthralling. I really enjoyed reading this book and look forward to the sequel!
