(pg. 285-286)

Hanna Marin- She is a skinny brunette who is popular with everyone in Rosewood High. Her best friend is Mona Vaderwaal who also is her partner in crime when it comes to shopping. Hanna steals stuff from the mall and also has an eating disorder that only she knows about since the start of it back in 9th or 10th grade.

Aria Montgomery- Aria is the girl that everyone remembers as being the punk rock girl with pink highlights in her hair. Now those days are gone because, while in Iceland, she got rid of the pink hair and changed her look. She is now that girl that is dating her English teacher Ezra Fits.

Spencer Hastings- Spencer is the "star" girl who always gets her homework done and is very organized. She is also a tall and beautiful field hockey player. Her parents always ignore her and never pay any attention when her big sister Melissa is around. Melissa doesn't know that Spencer also gets into trouble with her boyfriends.

Emily Fields- Emily is the girl that does everything her parents want her to do including to be a swimmer on her school swim team. Her boyfriend's name is Ben and she isn't sure if she likes him anymore because of her new friend Maya Daniels. Now Emily is trying to find out who she really is while still mourning over her friend Alison.

Alison Dilaurentis- Alison was the best friend of the 4 girls on the left. She was a nasty person sometimes but could be one of the sweetest. No one knows where she went other than the fact she is gone. All the girls still think about her all the time when they are in situations that remind them of her.

Mona Vanderwaal- Mona is the stuck up best friend of Hanna who gets Hanna to do anything she wants her to do.

Ezra Fitz- Ezra is the laid back English teacher who is now dating one of his students, Aria.

Maya Daniels- Maya is the girl who smokes pot and drinks, but has the biggest heart. She and Emily are best friends who tell each other their secrets.

Wren Kingston- Wren is the doctor who is about to marry Melissa, but who he really wants is Spencer.

A- A is the mastermind behind the scheme to take down the four girls and make sure they suffer terribly. What the four girls don't know is who is A?

Rising Action
Character's relationships
Book Trailer!
Rosewood Pennsylvania
The Character relationships are:

Emily, Aria, Hanna, Spencer, and Alison used to be best friends. They would tell each other almost everything, but most of their secrets they told to Alison. When Alison disappeared though, the girls couldn't keep the group together until now.

Wren and Melissa are engaged and about to get married soon.

Alison was the best friend to four girls who broke apart after she left.

Hanna is dating Sean who is tall and has blondish, brown hair. Hanna and Sean have been dating since the tenth grade but at Noel Khan's party, Hanna goes too far and the two break up in the end.

Emily is dating Ben who has freckles, piercing blue eyes, slightly stubbly jaw, and a beautifully chiseled swimmer's body. He really likes Emily, but she keeps questioning whether or not she really does like him because of Maya.

Aria is dating Ezra Fitz, the new English teacher at Rosewood High. Aria and Ezra share all the same interest in books, movies, and in a lot of other things too. She has deeply fallen in love with him, but is afraid that A may tell everyone about her new boyfriend including her parents.

Spencer is having an affair with Wren who she really likes even thought she knows it is wrong.
In this book there is no resolution. You would need to read the other 14 books in the series to figure out the ending.
