Synopsis from Goodreads

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.


I went into this one with a much higher expectation than I went into the first in the series, mostly because I really enjoyed the first book. However while I was pleasantly surprised by my reaction to the first book, I was disappointed with this one. 
I didn't like it as much as the first, I felt like it was a little bit slow in the pacing, and a lot of the characters just seemed really annoying for most of the book. Mostly Spencer and Aria's characters bugged me, which was weird to me because they're my favourites in the show.
There were parts of this book that I really enjoyed, and the whole A storyline is still interesting, but as for the girls personal storyline's, mostly I wasn't that fussed by them in this book.
I will be continuing with the series, and I've actually already bought the third book, so I'll probably read that next month.
Overall it was ok but not great, and not as good as the first book.
