Three years ago, Alison disappeared after a slumber party, not to be seen since. Her friends at the elite Pennsylvania school mourned her, but they also breathed secret sighs of relief. Each of them guarded a secret that only Alison had known. Now they have other dirty little secrets, secrets that could sink them in their gossip-hungry world. When each of them begins receiving anonymous emails and text messages, panic sets in. Are they being betrayed by some one in their circle? Worse yet: Is Alison back? A strong launch for a suspenseful series.
Why I read this Book:
I thought this would be a fun read. I knew it was a TV show and I was getting back into the Vampire Diaries TV show, and something connected the two in my mind as teen must haves!
This book does a stellar job of someone having a secret and trying to keep it. Of withholding information in a plot intense kind of way. Secrets in the category of that thing that you are ashamed of that you keep trying to skirt around, but it’s like the giant elephant in the room that NO ONE talks about, we’ll this book is full of those. FULL OF THEM. And it does it really well.
As much as I wanted the girls just to come clean, I also understood them too. I cared about them, even when the truth would set them free, so to speak. I finished the book with this pit in my stomach worrying about each of them.
It was good, it was a quick read with good pacing and interesting cliff hangers. The kind of book you look for in a summer read at the beach. Something to forget your worries in and get wrapped up in.
