- Paperback: 368 pages
- Publisher: HarperTeen; Reprint edition (November 25, 2008)
Four pretty little liars' charmed lives have turned into living nightmares.
Emily's been shipped off to Iowa to live with her überconservative cousins. Aria's boyfriend is behind bars—because of her. Spencer's afraid she was involved in Ali's murder. But Hanna's fate is far worse: She's clinging to life in the hospital because she knew too much.
If these girls don't start listening to me, Hanna's going to look like the lucky one.
In this fourth installment of the Pretty Little Liars series we finally learn who A is...and you will never guess who it is. Someone is arrested for Ali's murder as well. The author keeps you guessing throughout the whole book and even with the arrest it still leaves you unsure. So many people had a motive to kill Ali it really could have been just about anyone. There are hints that the DeLaurentis' maybe have a family secret and I have my own theories about that.
The girls have gone through some changes in this installment. Emily's parents accept her for who she is after she ran away but now that she has what she wants she no longer seems sure that what she wants is Maya. Hanna was in a coma and when she awoke she was missing a chunk of her memory...including who A was. She also didn't remember her fight with Mona or her budding relationship with Lucas. Spencer actually bonds with her sister but then suspects her of a heinous crime. Aria moves in with her father and Meredith but still resents Meredith. She also discovers some shocking information about the "Jenna incident."
These novels have me hooked and I can't wait to continue reading as more and more secrets are unraveled.

Aria can't resist her forbidden ex. Hanna is on the verge of losing her BFF. Emily is freaking out over a simple kiss. And Spencer can't keep her hands off anything that belongs to her sister.
Lucky me. I know these pretty little liars better than they know themselves. But it's hard keeping all of their secrets to myself. They better do as I say . . . or else!
Perfect is the third book in this amazing series. Once again I have to point out the smooth transition from one book to another. So far this has been my favorite of the three books I have read. Perfect is gripping and kept me on my toes the entire time. The question of "who did it?" just kept bouncing around in my head. One minute I think I have figured out who it is and then next thing I know I'm onto someone else. Just about everyone seems like a suspect.
The girls have been dealing without a lot of emotional stress and pain throughout the previous books and Perfect is no different. Quite of a bit of the pain comes from the girl's parents. It is shameful the way some of the adults are more childish than the children. If they would just show their kids some love, attention, understanding, and forgiveness the way a good parent should then maybe their lives wouldn't be so messed up.
I absolutely loved this book and could not put it down. I have to warn you to be sure to have the fourth book, Unbelievable with you when you read Perfect. It ends at a very suspenseful, cliff hanger type moment and you will want to IMMEDIATELY read the next one. Unfortunately I have to wait until this weekend to read it and it is KILLING me!!!
