Goodreads Summary:
The newest installment in Sara Shepard’s bestselling Pretty Little Liars series is packed with juicy drama and delicious surprises that will keep readers guessing to the very end.
Hanna, Aria, Emily, and Spencer have been telling some outrageous tales; only, the proof always seems to go missing. The friends insist they’re telling the truth, but all of Rosewood thinks they’re just out for attention—and nobody likes a girl who cries wolf. So when the big bad killer comes after them, will anyone believe the girls. . . or will they be the next to disappear? 


I just can't get enough of this series!  The writing keeps you insanely attached from the first moment until the very end.  I am constantly trying to come up with theories as to what happened, and I have to admit that Shepard had me believing just about everyone was guilty of Ali's murder.  

These girls are put through the wringer in each book.  Their secrets are hung out for everyone to see and this new "A" seems to know everything about them.  The questions now...is Ali alive?  After the four girls tell the police they believe they saw Ali in the woods and someone needs to look for her, the world turns against them.  No one believes what they have to say and everyone is questioning whether these four girls are responsible for their own friend's murder.  Could they have done it?  Could these girls who were always just a little bit jealous of Ali be her killer?

This is book number 7 in the Pretty Little Liar series.   I have to admit that although this book sucked me in, it wasn't as entertaining as some of the books before it.  I felt like it jumped around a little too much and some of the stories were crazy out there.  This would not be my favorite in the series, although I am looking forward to picking up #8 at the library sometime soon!  This series is such a fast, fun read with tons of twists and turns that I can't help myself.  Definitely a go to when you don't know what else to pick up.  The series and these four girls will keep you entertained.  Whether laughing, crying, or angry with them you will feel an attachment to at least one of these girls.  For me, I particularly feel for Emily who seems to be the most lost, but every girl has her problems and secrets that could be harmful if someone finds out.  Have you read this series and feel an attachment to any of these girls more than the others?  I'd love to hear who you feel deserves the sympathy or attachment!
