The Frenzy Five is a reoccurring Q&A series where we ask YA authors the kind of things you really want to know! This week Sara Shepard, author of the bestsellingPretty Little Liars series, is up to the challenge! 

1. If you could have coffee with any author who would it be? Ernest Hemingway, though I doubt we would be having coffee.

2. What are the top three most-played songs in your home? Unbelievers by Vampire Weekend, Everything Is Awesome from the Lego Movie, and The Walker by Fitz and the Tantrums

3. What was your favourite book as a teenager? She’s Come Undone by Wally Lamb. I read a lot of adult fiction at a young age, but this one really stuck with me.  

4. What is your favourite way to waste time? Instagram

5. Describe your book in five words. Sneaky, investigative, suspenseful, tense, Ali.

Thanks Sara!
