Hot Key Books, 2014. ISBN: 9781471404344
(Age: Older teens) High school senior Nolan Hotchkiss is one of those lucky kids - handsome, rich and a self-centered bully who walks all over the other students. No one can touch him and no one wants to try . . . Until now. Five girls - Ava, Caitlin, Mackenzie, Julie and Parker - they all have a good reason to want to end Nolan's reign of terror. They scheme and create the perfect murder - hypothetically, of course. It was only supposed to stop him, until Nolan ends up dead the same way that the girls had planned. Except that they didn't commit murder. They have to find the real killer; otherwise their perfect lives will come crashing down around them.
The first novel in the series. The Perfectionists is much like her sister series, The Pretty Little Liars. This novel is great for those who love a crime that seems unsolvable. It is an addictive read, one that cannot be put down. A page-turner full of suspense, mystery and murder. A great read for the older teens.
