The lie that started it all.
Before there was A, there was Alison DiLaurentis. Boys wanted to date her, girls wanted to be her, and somebody wanted her dead. . . .
It´s the end of seventh grade, and Alison DiLaurentis and her friends are the girls of Rosewood Day. Ali runs her clique with an iron fist, and she´s got enough dirt on Hanna, Emily, Aria, and Spencer to keep them in line. But Ali´s hiding a dark secret of her own, something so huge it would destroy everything if it ever got out. She´s desperate to keep the perfect life she´s worked so hard to build, but in Rosewood deadly secrets have deadly consequences. . . .
Set in the weeks leading up to Ali´s murder, this special Pretty Little Liars tale is told by the prettiest little liar of all: Ali herself. For the first time ever, we see how the mystery began . . . and how Alison DiLaurentis´s life ended.
