The thriller focuses on four teenagers - Kitty, Margot, Bree and Olivia - who come together to expose the bullies within their school.
To maintain their anonymity, the girls create a secret society, DGM (Don't Get Mad, Get Even) where they target bullies with a series of pranks.
The pranks are intended to expose the bullies' nasty ways, but things turn awry when their latest target, Ronny, ends up dead. Despite doing their best to deliver justice, they find themselves framed for his murder.
In a bid to uncover the true killer, the girls embark upon a mission to find the truth. Along the way, they face the usual teenage troubles - first love drama, tests of friendship, not to mention exam stress and coursework deadlines.
The themes of teen identity and independence are interwoven throughout - and if you're a Pretty Little Liars fan, this could certainly be one for you.
