The Perfectionists Series by Sara Shepard (#1-2)
Publisher: HarperTeen
Goodreads Summary: 
Ava, Caitlin, Mackenzie, Julie, and Parker are all driven to be perfect—no matter the cost.

At first the girls think they have nothing in common, until they discover that they all hate the same person: handsome womanizer Nolan Hotchkiss, who's done things to hurt each of them.

They come up with the perfect plan to murder Nolan—jokingly, of course. They'd never actually go through with it. But when Nolan turns up dead in the exact way they'd discussed, the girls suddenly become prime suspects in his murder.

Only, they didn't do it.

So who did? Unless they find the real killer, and soon, any one of them may be the next to die….

Mackenzie, Ava, Caitlin, Julie, and Parker have done some not-so-perfect things. But even though they all talked about killing rich bully Nolan Hotchkiss, they didn’t actually go through with it. It’s just a coincidence that Nolan died in exactly the way they planned . . . right? Except Nolan wasn’t the only one they fantasized about killing. When someone else they named dies, the girls wonder if they’re being framed. Or are they about to become the killer’s next targets?
Rating: 4 Stars // 5 Stars
Review: Whoa this book is pretty similar to the Pretty Little Liars series, but that doesn't discount that! Interestingly it also features five teenage female protagonists. It's a different storyline, and I'm not sure yet, but I'm starting to like it even more than PLL. There's a lot of great plot writing and character arcs in The Perfectionists! I adore Parker but feel deeply for her.
Is this the last book of the series? Well, it hasn't been updated in two years, but I feel like it hasn't ended?... The Good Girls is EVEN BETTER! The revelations at the end are super shocking and I'm still a little in denial. It's logical, but I'm not exactly sure I'm convinced. Maybe it's just my memory confusing me though. Seriously, if you enjoyed PLL read this series!
