Pretty Little Liars By Sara Shepard

Part I.

Reflect- Everyone was something to hide. In a group of friends, there's always a shoulder to cry on, the only one you'd ever want telling or calling about your crush and the final word on whether your outfits made you look good or bad and knows everything about you, including your good and bad stuff. But what if everything turns to horrible situation? How can you candle it or how your friendship can hold on it?
In this story, it talks about how a friendship was set apart because of an unexpected tragedy that happened. I felt it was brave for Emily to confess her feelings to Alison and Maya. But I did not expect that Ben (Emily's boyfriend) will find it out. I didn't think it was right for Hanna to use some ugly tricks to stay beautiful. She is hurting herself and that's surprised me. I guess it's hard for Aria to accept that Ezra was mad at her. She really thought that she already got Ezra but because of "A" everything turns to chaos. And I also didn't think it was right for Spencer to covet her sister's boyfriend. If they really like each other, maybe they can do it in a nice way that no one will get hurt and get mad too much. I can understand why Spencer's parents got really mad at her. 

Connect- It was November 26, 2011 when my best friend  and I became really good friends. It's our friendship anniversary. She really knows about me: bad and good stuff and those secrets that I cannot say to anyone. We exchange feelings, ideas and emotions and we're not ashamed to each other. We're opened to each other and we're like sisters. Like in the story, Alison, Hanna, Emily, Spencer and Aria are really good friends and I can say best of friends. They know each other very well. But not like in the story, our friendship will never ever be ruin just because of a tragedy or any unexpected situation. That whatever happens, our friendship will stay together. 

Question- I wonder who "A" is? I'm really confused why A kept on watching every moves Hanna and her friends are doing. I also couldn't figure out why A knows everything in the girls. As the story says, Alison is already dead and if she is dead who is "A"? The only person that knew everything about the girls was Alison. I guess doing that to Hanna, Spencer, Emily, and Aria is a bad one because she is making fun of them even though they deserves punishment because of their naughty behavior. 

Predict- I think that if Spencer didn't tell Alison to go out during their sleep over in her house, Alison would not be dead and there's no such thing as "A". Maybe their friendship will grow stronger and their life would not be miserable as now.

Part II.

Write a letter to the author.

Ms. Sara Shepard:

Good day!

I have read Your book entitled "Pretty Little Liars". It was a two-thumbs up novel. Upon reading your novel, all I have do is to appreciate it. The settings, the plot, the twist in every scene and the way you have described each character's attitude amazed me. I have enjoyed it. It talks about friendship and interpersonal relations that makes the reader like it so much. We, teenagers, can relate to it. By the way, I'm really confused who this "A" is? hahaha! :) but I'm hoping that I can read the series of it and I'm trying.
Thank you and more powers to you Sara.
God bless.

                                                                                                                            Truly yours,
