How would I describe Pretty Little Liars? A modern-day, teen-centered mystery chockfull of inappropriate content and narrated by a handful of terrible role models. Sara Shepard’s writing is very suspenseful and will keep readers turning the pages, but this first installment in a long series is definitely not for anyone under fifteen years old.
