Flawless by Sara Shepard

ISBN: 9781907410888
Publisher: Harper Teen
Pages: 274

In the exclusive town of Rosewood, Pennsylvania, where the sweetest smiles hide 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 Maya . . . as 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 ultracompetitive 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.

Whilst I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, there didn't seem to be as much happening as there was in the previous book. It was quite sad really in parts because someone (who wasn't one of the main characters) dies, which brings Spencer, Emily, Hanna and Aria together - if only for a short while. My favourite character was Spencer, despite all of her other commitments and the time they had spent apart she still tries to reach out (and sometimes protect) her old friends, whatever the consequences. I really like the cover of Flawless, it represents Aria perfectly, from the girl in the actual image to the purples and pinks surrounding the image.
