Beginning with the Initial Impressions of the four main friends: (all striving to be just as popular as Alison.)
Aria Montgomery is an independent girl (considered to be the oddball of the group in Rosewood.)
3 years spend in Iceland with her family
feels out of place in Rosewood & tends to be attracted to older (more wordly men)
struggles to keep family matters from affecting her schoolwork.
family struggles? Dad cheating?
possibly carrying on multiple relationships @ one time?
