Perfect for fans of the #1 New York Times bestselling series and the hit ABC Family TV show, this Pretty Little Liars prequel novel reveals Ali's secrets from before she was murdered.
Rewind a few years to seventh grade: Alison DiLaurentis and her friends are the It girls of Rosewood Day. Boys want to date them. Girls want to be them. But even though they seem to have it all, these girls are hiding some major secrets—especially Ali. She knows better than anyone that if the truth gets out, it will ruin everything.
Set in the weeks before Ali's murder, Ali's Pretty Little Lies is the first Pretty Little Liars novel told entirely from Ali's point of view. After all, who better to tell her story than Ali herself, the prettiest little liar of all?
After the queen bee of their clique mysteriously disappears during a slumber party on the last day of seventh grade, the remaining four girls drift apart. Now, three years later, the Rosewood, Pa., former pals are practically strangers, but still plagued by the secrets that they shared with Alison\x97and new scandals they are trying to keep under wraps. Then they each start receiving cryptic messages from someone named "A" who seems to know everything, and makes them wonder, "Was sheback ?" The four girls are fairly standard types: there is free-spirited Aria, overachiever Spencer, good-girl Emily, a star swimmer, and glamorous Hanna. Their scandals, too, echo the over-the-top fare typical of guilty pleasure books: Aria is having an affair with her new AP English teacher, for example, while Emily finds that kissing a girl "felt a zillion times different than kissing" her boyfriend. Readers will certainly find enough drama to keep the pages turning (one girl battles bulimia, another steals her sister's boyfriend\x97and then there's what's buried in Alison's old backyard), and they will no doubt have fun piecing together who and what could be behind those bizarre messages. This is clique lit with a mystery twist: the author has spun a plethora of possibilities sure to make readers reach for the next installment in this planned four-book series\x97and beyond. Ages 14-up.

Absolutely amazing book! Anyone who is a fan of the pretty little liars book series must read this. It's so interesting to get inside Alison and Courtney Dilaurentis heads and lives. Definitely recommend it to all PLL fans!!!
This book is honestly amazing! I love the pretty liars series! It's like an addiction, so when I found out the first ever book from Ali's perspective. I bought it only a few months later. But anyway, In this book Jason and Courtney's connection is revealed I wonder if he helped get the real Ali out thinking she was Courtney... So Jason acted suspicious because he felt bad? Idk I'm only like 7 books into the series! But I couldn't wait!!! :)
Courtney's responsible for the A team
I thought the book was really good! I thought it was nice to see Ali's Point of view! If only it revealed who A was but now we know that Courtney is
responsible for the A team!
