Learning About Trust

Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard is a story about five friends. They were friends since Elementary school. They were always together, but four of them trusted Alison the the most. When Alison disappeared they thought that their secrets were safe because she was dead. After two years that Alison was dead, the girls started to get some weird text messages from a private number. Those messages were all about their secrets that only Alison knew, and they started to think who was sending the messages if Alison was dead.

The most interesting character was Alison because she knew about all the secrets of her friends, and she always took advantage about what she knew about the others. She was the most beautiful and intelligent from the group. People thought that she was the leader of the group because of that.

Alison DiLaurentis may be young in age, but she acted beyond her years, not only because she knew everyone’s deepest, darkest secrets, but she also understood exactly how to manipulate people in order to get what she wants.

 I learned that we cannot trust anyone. Even if you think you know everything about that person, sometimes that person can tell secrets they know about you, and maybe that person will take advantage of what they know about you. I recommend this book to teenagers who think about whether they can trust their friends.
