Five ABC Family Girls Who Could Be Your New BFF

by Jean Bentley, posted Jun 14th 2011 2:15PM
Nine Lives of Chloe KingIt's doubtful a mysterious stranger is blackmailing you and framing you for your best friend's murder, but isn't it strange that somehow it feels like the 'Pretty Little Liars' girls could be your real-life BFFs?

The same goes for the title character on 'The Nine Lives of Chloe King.' So you're not the most powerful member of a feline-like ancient race with nine lives -- you get the same butterflies when a cute guy flirts with you at your after-school job.

ABC Family has always done a good job at creating shows around likable teenage girls who you can identify with even if your life is nothing like theirs. In honor of tonight's 'PLL' return (8PM ET) and 'Nine Lives' premiere (9PM), I've rounded up five of ABC Family's most relatable characters -- ones I'd totally hang out with if I could (and they weren't fictional).

Lea Thompson, Katie Leclerc, Switched at BirthBeing switched at birth isn't exactly an experience many people can relate to.

But Lea Thompson, star of ABC Family's new series 'Switched at Birth' (premieres Mon., June 6 at 9PM), assures AOL TV there is plenty in the series, about two teenage girls who discover they were accidentally brought home from the hospital by the wrong families, that will feel familiar to viewers.

"A lot of families have adoptive children, egg donors -- it's all about nature versus nurture, and whether you love someone just because they're your blood or whether you love someone because of the experiences you had with them," she says. "I think everybody can relate to that. I certainly can. For my character, I think she's just like 'Oh my gosh, great! There's more people in my family that I can love!'"
