[edit] Overview

The series is loosely divided into three arcs of four to five books each, chronicling the introduction and reveal of each "A". The series follows the lives of four teenage girls ' Aria Montgomery, Emily Fields, Hanna Marin, and Spencer Hastings (nicknamed the Pretty Little Liars or simply the Liars) ' whose clique falls apart after the disappearance of their leader, Alison DiLaurentis. Four years after her disappearance, they begin receiving text messages from an anonymous source, "A," who threatens to expose their secrets ' including long-hidden ones they thought only their close friend Alison knew. But shortly after, Alison's body was discovered.

[edit] Characters

Although the series features an extensive cast of characters of varying significance, the novels focus predominantly on six main characters:

Spencer Hastings

An extremely competitive girl who strives for perfection in everything she does. A high-strung over-achiever, Spencer is willing to do whatever it takes to win, often to the detriment of herself and others. She is often quick to jump to conclusions and suffers from IED. Spencer was half-sister with Alison and Courtney DiLaurentis, her father having had an affair around the time of Spencer's conception; her parents divorce when the affair comes to light. She attends a summer program at Penn to improve her GPA.

Hanna Marin

A pretty, popular girl who used to struggle with both bulimia and anorexia due to insecurities about her appearance. Flighty and occasionally air-headed, Hanna often acts purely on impulse. In Alison's absence, she became best friends with Mona, Ali's previous target, and they both transformed themselves into Rosewood's new it girls. Hanna's parents divorced when she was twelve, after her father had an affair. She lived with her mother and would rarely see her father, especially after he started dating an average-looking nurse named Isabel. Hanna dislikes her father's new wife, Isabel, and her daughter, Kate, with whom she forms a rivalry. For a short time Hanna is sent to a mental institution, her father believing her eating disorders would resurface due to stress. Prior to Twisted, Hanna is involved in a car accident, which leaves another girl badly injured; she covers up her involvement with the help of the Liars.

Aria Montgomery

An artistic, independent girl whose family moved back to Rosewood after her father took a three year sabbatical in Iceland. Prior to Alison's disappearance, Aria became aware that her father was having an affair with a student of his (Meredith); having promised to keep it a secret, she is kicked out of the house after the first "A" reveals the affair to her mother. Her parents divorce and Aria's father marries Meredith, and she becomes pregnant. Aria often feels out of place in Rosewood and tends to be attracted to older, more worldly men, which frequently causes conflicts for her.For example, when she was dqating Ezra Fitz her English teacher and got him fired. After a near-death experience, she is overcome with guilt and decides to confess to accidentally killing Tabitha (unaware she was not responsible for Tabitha's death).

Emily Fields

Emily is a shy, dedicated swimmer with a sweet personality. She was in love with Alison, and kissed her once back in seventh grade. A fact which she takes great pains to hide. She develops feelings for a new girl named Maya, resulting in a secret relationship, but she is then outed by the first "A" when a picture of them kissing is passed out at a swim meet. Although at first her parents make attempts to "de-gay" her, they eventually come to accept her. After she and Maya break up, she meets a guy named Isacc at a church event. Making her realize that she's bisexual. They start dating and have sex for the first time, but Emily breaks it off due to Isacc's mother trying to sabotage them. It was revealed in Twisted that she had gotten pregnant from her first time with Isacc, and hid it from her family by staying with her sister over the summer. She gave birth to a baby girl, Violet and was going to give her to Gayle (friend's extremely rich boss) for money but she changed her mind and gave the baby to the Baker's (people she met on an adoption site) which causes Gayle to get extremely agry at Emily. She receives an academic scholarship to attend UNC.

Alison DiLaurentis {varun's character}

An extremely popular, beautiful, and cruel girl. In the beginning of sixth grade her twin Courtney successfully tricked their mother Jessica into taking Ali to the mental hospital. Alison blamed the liars for ruining her life and swore revenge. She was the second "A" and killed Courtney , Jenna and Ian. Later on she tries to kill the girls in her Poconos home but they manage to get out. Alison is left inside and it's unknown whether she died or not. She threatened Courtney to be her, so she would seem crazy, and sent away. She kills her sister by pushing her into a hole that was originally made for a gazebo, accompanied by an unknown person.

Courtney DiLaurentis

Courtney was the mentally ill twin of Alison{varun's character} who the girls knew as Ali. She wanted to be like Alison so badly that she tried to drown her once in a pool when they were younger. This forced her family to put her in a mental institution when they moved to Rosewood. Then in sixth grade, Courtney was home switching hospitals and managed to fool their mother into taking Ali instead. Courtney befriended the liars and took over Alison's life completely. Then on the night of the end of seventh grade sleepover, Alison found Courtney outside by herself and they fought. The real Alison pushed Courtney into the hole for a gazebo; killing her. In Ali's Pretty Little Lies, it was revealed that Courtney wasn't the one mentally ill: Ali was. She threatened Courtney to pretend to be her so she would be deemed crazy, and sent away. She only wanted to be the one and only Ali, but her plan backfires after her parents realize Ali did something horrible to her sister, and she seeks revenge.

"A" {mystery men}

The main antagonist of the series. "A" is an anonymous, also known as Justine, extortionist who is privy to the Liars' deepest and darkest secrets, and uses these secrets to exact revenge on the Liars for (often) perceived wrongdoings. There are three different "A" characters throughout the series. The first "A", Mona Vanderwaal, was able to discover the Liars' secrets by reading Alison's old journal. During a physical confrontation with Spencer Hastings, Mona was pushed over the edge of a quarry and died. The second "A" is the "real" Alison DiLaurentis, who was sent away to a mental hospital in place of her twin sister, Courtney. She later dies in a house fire, while attempting to kill the Liars. A third "A", whose identity is currently unknown, begins tormenting the girls following an incident in Jamaica during spring break, prior to the events of Twisted.
