Ava, Caitlin, Mackenzie, Julie, and Parker are all driven to. Perfectionism is a trait that makes life an endless report card on accomplishments or looks. When healthy, it can be self-motivating and drive you to overcome adversity and achieve success. `The Perfectionist' by American journalist Rudolph Chelminski tells of the career of leading French chef, Bernard Loiseau from his apprenticeship with the Troisgros brothers to his recent suicide in upon seeing some negative press about the quality of his cuisine at his Michelin rated three star restaurant. Learn about Enneagram 1, the personality type of the perfectionist. Learn the focus of attention, speaking style, life lesson, relating and more here. Created by I. Marlene King. With Sasha Pieterse, Janel Parrish, Sofia Carson, Sydney Park. Everything about the town of Beacon Heights seems perfect, but in the aftermath of the town's first murder, behind every Perfectionist hides secrets, lies and much needed alibies.
Most of the secondary characters are absolutely irrelevant, cliched or brushed over. There were plenty of them, and I understand the importance of keeping the focus on the main 5 girls, but their relationships with the rest of these characters seemed rather shallow to me.
The mystery of this novel proceeded in a very standard fashion, but I still cannot say with certainty I know who's behind it or why, which made me more interested in the sequel than I had any intention to be.
The twists were not hard to see coming, but they are still delivered confidently and exactly when needed, leaving a remarkable impact on the story.
This is a standard mystery as far as the genre goes in YA, and The Perfectionists is was far too reminiscent of PLL in spite of the author's best efforts, but I would be lying if I said this book wasn't extremely engaging.
It went by fast and I was very entertained from beginning to end. The book is not without its flaws, but in the end, that doesn't take away from the entertainment value or the addictive quality of the novel, which I'm beginning to suspect is the entire reason behind the success of PLL.
Dec 13, Liz rated it liked it. Trigger warning: this book involves murder, the mention of suicide doesn't go into grand detail , pedophelia, domestic abuse, bullying, and drug abuse.
Sara Shepard always finds a way to keep me on the edge of my seat while throwing in so many characters, it's insane.
This book seemed rather influenced by the PLL tv show in that Mr Granger reminded me SO much of Ezra Fitz. Okay, yes, Granger is a Film teacher, but they both love film noir and they both love underaged girls.
I did like that the "m Trigger warning: this book involves murder, the mention of suicide doesn't go into grand detail , pedophelia, domestic abuse, bullying, and drug abuse.
I did like that the "main cast" of this book is rather diverse compared to Shepard's previous books, which mainly include white protagonists.
One of the MC's is of Korean heritage and has two moms and a brother who trigger warning committed suicide due to bullying. OH yes, the launching point of this book is that all of the MCs have been bullied or know someone who has been bullied by Nolan Hotchkiss.
Does that first name ring a bell? Things I liked: The girls stick together and support one another even though most of them didn't know each other before Mr Granger's class.
The pointing out that it's pretty ridiculous how the word of teenage girls isn't trusted. It's sad, but it's very much in the tone of, "See how ridiculous this is, readers?!
Even though there are some girls who kiss boys that aren't their boyfriends, it isn't shamed. Sure, their boyfriends react negatively -- to the point that I'm pretty sure Alex killed Mr G -- but it doesn't feel like it's a bad thing?!
It's more along the lines of that they're with a person who isn't as right to be with as the second guy. You know!? TL;DR - Definitely will be a comfort read for those who love the PLL tv show.
The MCs are in their senior year, which gives it more maturity, maybe?! It definitely adds another layer of pressure with college and the future looming in front of them.

This review also appears on YA Midnight Reads. The Perfectionists is reminiscent of Pretty Little Liars in almost every way. Truth be told, there is just so much to compare.
The Perfectionists is set in This review also appears on YA Midnight Reads. The Perfectionists is set in a town that is above all rich, and where all people try to be more than perfect.
This town produces some of the best students in the country, who not only excel at their schoolwork but also at othe activities like soccer, music, and, well, being pretty.
Everyone tries to be perfect in every way, which of course includes looks. These teens party and drink and keep their own secrets, but usually not those of others.
Which is probably why they end up dead. Sound familiar? Probably, because I could have just described the plot of either Pretty Little Liars or The Perfectionists.
The major difference being that in The Perfectionists, our five female protagonists might have actually something to do with the murder.
She keeps unveiling secrets and making the reader second-guess nearly everything. Though this review could very well turn out slightly ranty, I have to admit I was really intruiged and fully invested in the story.
And wanting to find out who did it, of course. We have the sporty one, the one with problems at home, and the one who may or may not be involved with a teacher.
The most interesting characters in The Perfectionists for me were Parker and Ava. Parker used to be pretty and perfect like the rest of the town, but she has some awful scars now and thus hides her face behind a hoodie.
Ava seemingly has everything going for her, but she still suffers from some nasty rumors that were spread about her a while ago.
Because of this she starts making some stupid, albeit interesting, decisions and the way she kept digging this hole deeper and deeper caught my attention.
Then there is the plot, some elements of which I definitely recognized. Though I thought that yes, some parts of the book were definitely recycled material from Pretty Little Liars, all the side-plots and the main mystery caught my attention and held it.
The Perfectionists has surprising and completely unsurprising plot twists, interesting and some uninteresting characters, and ultimately is the perfect story who want a murder mystery but nothing too heavy.
But maybe I just attend a strange high school. View all 11 comments. Aug 11, Willow Hadley rated it it was ok. I just really wasn't into this.
It seemed so similar to Pretty Little Liars which is pretty lame considering it's the same damn author.
It also seemed like it was written to be a TV show, not a novel. None of these characters and there are way too many of them acted like real people.
Basically this whole thing annoyed me. Apr 11, Chelsea chelseadolling reads rated it it was ok. This was pretty entertaining, but I have a sneaking suspicion that this is going to involve one of my least favorite YA mystery thriller tropes and I am not about it.
Definitely will finish the series though bc it's like book crack and I am v curious. View all 3 comments. I started reading Pretty Little Liars few years ago and then I realized it has already a mammoth series with 12 or something already released so I dropped it.
Bustle has created a really nice article about similarities so you can check that out if you want. For me, I was in mood for murder mystery and started reading 'And Then There were None' but got tired really fast because I didn't want to keep track of such large number of people.
And then Goodreads suggested this and it was too easy to rea I started reading Pretty Little Liars few years ago and then I realized it has already a mammoth series with 12 or something already released so I dropped it.
And then Goodreads suggested this and it was too easy to read and like, I wanted to read the entire book in single sitting.
As this is mystery novel, I don't want to talk about it too much except that the the book is flooded with twist and turns with no resolution at the end which frustrates and makes you want to read 2 right away but I already started with 2 so there is no point saying that I liked it very much.
One thing I'd like to mention is that I don't read school life books because I can't stand brats but in this book every girl deals or tries to deal with their problems maturely so I'm keeping up with them.
This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Sara never fails to amaze me.
Tho this book reminds me so much of Pretty Little Liars it still has its own twists and unique way about it.
Following 5 girls who are brought together for their dislike of their fellow peer Nolan Hotchkiss Ava, Caitlin, Julie, Parker, and Mackenzie are all framed for his murder.
Each girl lives their own lives but are all connected for the framing. At the end you will learn there's more to live then being perfect. You can easily connect with each character.
I absol Sara never fails to amaze me. I absolutely loved the ending. That built more suspense and anticipation for the next book!!!
She has said the show is completely different then the series is. She has mentioned that not all of the girls are present and that Taylor is Nolan's sister not Caitlin's brother.
Allison and Mona aren't in the books but I know they are both a big part of the show. May 15, Nicole rated it it was amazing. Would you kill to be perfect?
For 5 girls that is not their cup of tea, but for someone in Beacon Heights it is. Mackenzie, Ava, Julie, Caitlin, and Parker decided it was time for revenge on Beacon Heights most popular boy, Nolan Hotchkiss.
After his torment and terrible actions against the girls they decided to do something about it. Sara Shepard is a mastermind at writing mystery teen books.
These chapters are very short, but are uniquely divided. Each chapter is dedicated to the 5 main characters Parker, Caitlin, Ava, Mackenzie, and Julia.
This is very interesting because you get to read about everyone's home life, their thoughts, and what they are doing. In addition, this can also make it hard to follow the story because the main characters have different things they are going through and are always doing something different.
All of the characters had different career goals that played a big part in this book which was hard to keep up with in different chapters.
Students here are some of the best in the country, and sometimes, they have to let off a little steam.
This sets the tone of the book, before it even starts. The author, Sara Shepard, is mostly a mystery writer with often strong teenagers leading the book.
One of the things I enjoy about this author is how she makes sure every secret or mystery of the book is revealed and nothing is never left untold.
She certainly knows how to end a book, and have you running to the book store to grab the second one in the series in no time.
In other context, there were a couple things that I found interesting and beneficial to the plot of the book. For example, the way the characters interacted with each other perfectly showed the type of person they are.
The friendship that the girls had in the book contributed to the plot, and made the story flow perfectly. The girls always had each others backs no matter what each girl did.
In addition, Sara Shepard made the book descriptive, and always ended her chapters with a mysterious tone.
From the family drama to shocking revelations of characters, it was unforgettable. Sara Shepard out did herself with another teen leading drama book.
This book was creative, very well put together, and overall genius. I enjoyed this book and I am eager to read the second one.
Dec 29, Sandy rated it liked it. I did enjoy reading this book and I read through it pretty quickly. The book is told in 5 different POVs so at first, it would be confusing as to who is who but it didn't take long for me to figure out.
I like that we have the overarching storyline of Nolan's murder but each character has their own personal drama to deal with. I do wish there was mo 3.
I do wish there was more of a focus on Nolan's murder but each character's individual storyline did keep me intrigued. Oct 21, Rachel rated it really liked it Shelves: for-review.
Especially when, with each new chapter, secrets are revealed, creating doubt and suspicion, and when new information comes to light that makes those who appear to be the most guilty seem innocent.
And with five protagonists whose personalities, lives, goals, and reasons for hating Nolan Hotchkiss are very different, discovering what those reasons are and finding out who can be trusted or who might be hiding something, makes this a real page turner.
Author Sara Shepard teases readers with each new revelation, each jaw-dropping twist, each surprise. She builds tension and creates suspense as the investigation heats up and the police begin to hone in on their suspect and as the girls try to catch who they think is guilty.
While much is left up in the air, the author struck the right balance between revealing too little and too much, creating a very satisfying read that allows readers to get to know enough to become invested in the characters and the plot and make them anxious for the next installment.
Original GR comments: Loved this first book in Sara Shepard's new series. I got a copy for a read-along the publisher put together and it was a lot of fun reading it in nine-chapter sections.
Loved the characters, the mystery and the killer ending. There were a few surprises, a whole bunch of moments that made me say WTH and a few characters I'm totally hoping get what they deserve.
Can't wait to find out what happens in the sequel. The author did a great job teasing throughout this book about things to come, revealing betrayals, threats and enemies, and leaving me unsure of who to trust and who might be the next key suspect.
Review TK. Dec 18, Nicole lost in the book's world rated it it was amazing Shelves: five-love-stars , love-it , mystery , cliffhanger , twist-plot , mystery-thriller , crazy.
Okay Okay This book is almost same as PRETTY LITTLE LIARS!!! I am so glad that I did done with Pretty Little Liars series with good end story! SARA SHEPARD PLEASE MAKE IT SHORT SERIES Just two to four books..
I really love her books I really enjoy to read her twist plot which I couldn't stop it because it really mystery Yeah :D When I start this book, WHAT I THINK OF Ava, Caitlin, Mackenzie, Julie Okay Okay Yeah :D When I start this book, WHAT I THINK OF Ava, Caitlin, Mackenzie, Julie, and Parker???
Parker: She's so I don't get it why she is so bitch and have bad attitude?? It said that Nolan Hotchkiss ruin her life?
That what Julie said that in book? I am going to find out why. Caitlin: She's so I really like her. She's so athlete It is really heartbroken that she lost her young brother.
It said that Nolan did ruin her brother's life because of bully thing. Oh poor to her brother. I get it why she is really mad at Nolan for allow her brother to kill himself SO, I am hope that I will still like her to till end of book.
Mackenzie: She's so Some a reason that she is weird.. I mean I used to be a highly neurotic perfectionist.
People are celebrated for being the best and you are shamed upon if you are mediocre. Hair bands or hair ties, if used, should be single-colored as well and only one of the same four colors black, grey, white, or blue was allowed.
Non-conformance would result in you being shamed, scolded in front of a crowd, or for guys, being caned. Perhaps this is why many readers appreciate my material and share it on other sites; teachers and professors alike use my material as part of their course curriculum.
Being a perfectionist has helped me achieve very precise standards and become an overachiever in many ways.
