Book Review #502 - The Perfectionists (The Perfectionists #1) by Sara Shepard


In Beacon Heights High, Nolan Hotchkiss is king. His charm, wealth and good looks are deceptively seductive, and many are the students whose lives and reputations have been ruined by it. All while Nolan continues to reign, unquestioned and undisrupted. Until now, that is.

Mackenzie, Ava, Julie, Caitlin and Parker seemingly don't have much in common. Each has their own friends, dramas and goals. But one thing they do share: they all have a deep hatred of Nolan Hotchkiss. And they all think it's about time he paid for what he's done. They come up with the perfect murder - a hypothetical murder, of course. It's all wishful thinking ... until they wake up one morning to find that their wish has come true. Nolan has been killed - in exactly the way they planned. The thing is, they didn't do it. So who did?

My Rating: 3.5/5

I received this book for review from Five Mile Press. 

I was excited to read this book as I really enjoyed the Pretty Little Liars series. 

This book has the same format as PLL which at first I wasn't so sure of but it became better when it settled down into its own rhythm and style. 

Like with PLL, this book follows a group of teenage girls who are all equal narrators in the story. These characters were a lot more diverse and relatable than the ones in PLL which was definitely a positive. 

This book wasn't as fast paced as I had expected it to be although it did accelerate towards the end. 

Overall I am really pleased that Sara Shepard has decided to write another series.
