In picturesque Rosewood, Pennsylvania, neighbors gossip over picket fences, and gleaming SUVs sit in every crushed-granite driveway. But recently, friendly smiles have been replaced with suspicious glares and accusatory whispers and it's all because Hanna, Aria, Emily, and Spencer just can't keep their mouths shut. .
First they claimed they found a dead body in the woods behind Spencer's house, only to have it vanish without a trace. Then when the same woods went up in flames, they swore they saw someone who's supposed to be dead rise from the ashes. And even after all that, the pretty little liars are still playing with fire.
Hanna's trading in her Dior trench for a straitjacket. Aria's trying to contact the dead. Emily's dumped her boyfriend and is skipping town . . . again. And Spencer thinks someone in her family has gotten away with murder.
The friends insist they're telling the truth about what they saw, but all of Rosewood thinks they're simply out for attention and nobody likes a girl who cries wolf. So when the big bad killer comes after the girls, will anyone believe them . . . or will they be the next to disappear?
My Rating: 5/5
This book was alot more slower paced than the previous books, but I still managed to read it really quickly. These books are really addictive. They have so many cliff hangers and twists in them that you can't stop reading them.
This book opens up even more unanswered questions, that you feel like you are on the verge of answering but just can't quite seem to put enough of the pieces together.
The cliff hanger from the last book was left unsolved, and so that remains in the top three of unanswered questions behind who killed Alison and who is A? (I don't think A is the person they arrested).
Spencer's uncovers what has probably been the biggest twist of the series so far. I was really shocked and didn't see it coming.
Aria starts dating someone her own age and has an interesting life of his own.
Hanna is still unsure who she can trust in her own family and her time in a mental institution opens more questions that need answers.
I liked Emily in this book which was a surprise. I thought her story (apart from Spencer's) was the most captivating.
The ending again at the end of the book was one of the biggest cliff hangers of the series so far. I am not sure why it ended the way it did and what influence it is going to have.
