Publisher's Summary

In Beacon Heights, Washington, five high school seniors know that you don't have to be good to be perfect.

Musical genius Mackenzie is desperate to get into Juilliard, even if it means playing a duet with her best friend's boyfriend. Beautiful Ava isn't above using her assets to get an A. Athletic Caitlin is one goal away from a soccer scholarship - if she can call a time-out on her relationship drama. Popular Julie has it all - literally, thanks to her hoarder mom - and will do anything to keep her family's secret. And former It Girl Parker is experimenting with her wild side.

The five girls think they have nothing in common, until they discover they all hate the same person: rich, entitled Nolan, who's done terrible things to each of them. 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 came true. Nolan was killed - in exactly the way they planned. The thing is, they didn't do it. So who did?

Suddenly the girls are the prime suspects in the murder. And they need to find the real killer before their perfect lives are ended - for good.

Very Good

I've always loved Sara Shepard, so if you do too I think you'd really love this book. Same feel to her others. I liked who narrated, her voice went well with the story and the mystery!

Fun

This is a fun, quick read. It's somewhat similar to pretty little liars, but that doesn't take away from the book. I definitely want to know what happens next. I've worked up a few theories in my head, so I can't want to c if they're right. I love sara shepards books and I wish Cassandra Morris would narrate all of them in the future too.

Pretty little liars but better

As a personal reader of the pretty little liars series I couldn’t help but notice the similarities. I do; however, think that the perfectionists was a much better story. It didn’t have a psycho twin story within a murder; it just had a murder. It’s much more mysterious and totally has some plot twists.
I can’t wait for the show next year.

hard to follow

The story itself was bad, but there are a lot of characters and it jumps around A LOT. it's hard to follow at times. I liked the lying game by Sara Shepard much more.

A Good Read, Similiar to PLL

I really enjoyed this audiobook. I thought the narrator did a great job, although I know many people do not care for her. Let me offer a warning though, if you went straight from a PLL book into this one, you can get a little confused. There are several similarities.

I thought the story premise was a good one, and kept you guessing. I feel like I have an idea what is happening, but there was that cliffhanger. So... maybe I do not know after all.

This is a great fix for those who are missing PLL and getting ready to see The Perfectionist brought to TV soon. I recommend this for a light, fun, mystery read. If you are a fan of PLL, this is the next best choice.

Pretty little liars take 2?

I listened because it was free with KindleUnlimted.
would I recommend it? uhh no not unless you want a PLL take 2
The Narrator was ok but a little bit "squeaky" sounding, to high pitched for my taste. Ilistened for about 2 hrs and had to jump to the end I couldnt take it anymore and was having serious PLL Flash backs.
If you've watched the TV Show you know that -A is never who you think it is and on and on it goes,huge mystery of who and why? yea thats theending here also, I didnt see anything for a second book but who knows.

Not the best narrator...

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

The narrator was annoying. It was difficult to listen to her for long periods of time.

Would you recommend The Perfectionists to your friends? Why or why not?

Fans of PLL will like this. The first few chapters were hard to get into. The characters weren't always easy to tell apart and there were several forgettable minor characters.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

The narration detracted from the story at times.

Part One

What made the experience of listening to The Perfectionists the most enjoyable?

While I enjoyed the story I DID NOT enjoy that the story was ended with everything up in the air requiring me to wait till whenever book 2 is written. I don't care for books that don't wrap the story at the end so I would have waited to read this until the next book had been written. Books like The Hunger Game series, The Twilight series even the Percy Jackson series conclude most of the story at the end of each book. They leave a tease that more is to come but this book didn't conclude anything, leaving the reader to wait till when? I probably will not read or listen to this author again because of this fact.

What could Sara Shepard have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Finish the current story in the book. Leave a tease for the reader to follow but finish the current story
