The Perfectionists is the newest book series by Sara Shepard, author of the Pretty Little Liars series. I got this as an e-ARC to review as a librarian. I really liked the PLL book series, and also enjoy the show, but once the series was "done" and then more books kept being published, it lost my interest a bit.
This book follows the same formula as the PLL books: 5 high school girls, and unexplained death, except this time the girls have the motive for the murder and have to prove who the real killer was.
It was a good quick read, and people that are in to PLL will like it.
My rating: 3.5 stars.
