Watch with your child!

I've watched both episodes of this new series with my 11 yr. old daughter. We're enjoying the twist and turns. We talk about the fact that it's 'fiction' and that normal people don't act this way and just enjoy the story line.

Excellent!

The show is compelling and will keep you hooked. There is very mild violence. There is no sex only talk about sex. There is positive role models and positive messages through the seasons.

Guilty pleasure for the squeamish

This series is much milder than the books. Plus it glosses over the fact that in the book, Sutton has been murdered. I wish ABC Family would stick to the actual plots, yeesh! I would recommend this over Pretty Little Liars at this point for squeamish parents. It's a good, guilty pleasure.

A nice surprise-

I watched this show and was pleased by how simple it was- no one's pregnant, no one's sexually confused, no one was doing drugs, or any of the other things that seem to be on every other show made for teenagers. Based on the first episode, I think it is appropriate for all tweens and teenagers.
