Goodreads Summary:

It’s been a year since the torturous notes from A stopped and the mystery of Alison DiLaurentis’s disappearance was finally put to rest. Now seniors in high school, Aria, Spencer, Hanna and Emily are older, but they’re not any wiser. The Pretty Little Liars have more secrets than ever - twisted secrets that could destroy the perfect lives they’ve worked so hard to rebuild.

Aria’s jealous of her boyfriend’s new exchange student. Spencer’s getting a little too cozy with her soon-to-be-stepbrother. Hanna’s one scandalous photo away from ruining her dad’s Senate campaign. And Emily will do anything to get a swim scholarship.

Worst of all: Last spring break in Jamaica, they did something unforgivable. The girls are desperate to forget that fateful night, but they should know better than anyone that all secrets wash ashore … eventually.

Alright, I know what you’re thinking, “another PLL?” I can’t get enough of this series.  If it ever really ends, I’m going to be devastated.  This is the type of quick read that doesn’t require a lot of thinking that I absolutely love to recharge my brain.  There is another big secret among these girls involving Jamaica.  This installment of the series seemed to focus on a vacation these girls took after everything with “A” was settled.  Unfortunately, it wasn’t much of a vacation.  There is so much going on that the girls sometimes seem a little psychotic in what they’re imagining, then again,  I would be too after what they’ve went through.

This was another fast and easy read.  Other books in the series have been better, but I still enjoyed this one.  I’m going to pick up the next one at the library as soon as they get it in, because I don’t want to only own one in a series.  I’m not going to say much more about this book because being number nine in the series means just about anything I say is going to give away something about previous books.  Once again, if you haven’t started this series, you must.  It’s a great, easy, mysterious group of books that focuses on the lives of four girls who have a lot of secrets to hide.  It will definitely keep you guessing!
