Overview

It's springtime in suburban Rosewood, which means iced soy lattes, fresh manicures in shimmering pastels—and prom. But while everyone else is fl ipping through the racks at Saks in search of the perfect dress, Hanna, Spencer, Emily, and Aria are on a diff erent kind of hunt: They're looking for A. . . .

Hanna puts her campaign for prom queen on the back burner to volunteer at the burn clinic, where one of A's victims is recovering. Emily digs into Ali's past at the mental hospital with some very crazy consequences. Spencer contacts a private eye to help her stalk her stalker. But when their sessions get a little too private, they may forget to keep their eyes on A. . . . And Aria's worried that A is even closer than she thought. When her dark secret from Iceland fi nally comes to light, she discovers that maybe, just maybe, the one person she's been trying to hide the truth from has known all along.

The liars are fi nally taking the fi ght to A. But no matter what they do, A's always one step ahead, ready to crush the girls completely.

Although I love the Pll series and am a huge fan this is becoming very elongated. The story line has been the same for quite some time just told in different scenarios. This is becoming like LOST where eventually the fans grew tired of waiting!

I think I enjoyed this one more because my expectations were so low. Of course, I still feel like I'm reading out of obligation, just to maybe, someday find out who's behind all this. It really is time to end this series before the entire story line repeats itself; I hope the author can do it well in the next book instead of in another 48 books. Crushed was so good. I usually like Hanna and Aria's storylines the best and Emily and Spencer's are so-so. But in Crushed they were all equally great. Although she is my favorite by default, Hanna's was my favorite though. Crushed really showed what a dynamic character she is and she has come a really long way from ogling the 5th grade popular kid lunch table, to where she is now. I'm so proud of her.  The ending becomes somewhat reminiscent of the other books (omg this person definitely is A, everything's coming together! oh wait, nevermind) with a big bomb being dropped at the end. Overall, this book definitely did NOT disappoint me, I liked it much better than the previous. Kept my heart raising and was well-written as ever!

I really enjoyed this book but I am growing weary of them always falling into A's trap of believing it is a certain person for it to all blow up in their face in the end. I guess in a sense that's what drives the plot of the book and I actually was starting to believe in their theory too but I soon realize it was all a big setup. I was happy to see the Liars finally realize Ali is not this supernatural human being and really can't be everywhere they are and put their magical beans together to realize she has an ally working with her (about time !!) and that is what made this book more enjoyable than the last two. But I have my own theory about who's helping Ali with her evil deeds and after ready Ali's Pretty Littly Lies, I think it is pretty obvious that it is Nick. The Liars made hedgeway in finding out that Ali's helper is a guy and before Graham passed, he admitted the person's name started with an N - which led Spencer,Aria, Hanna and Emily to believe it was Noel but it further proved my theory that it was Nick instead that is the mysterious helper. My only questions to my own theory is that Nick was Ali's crush in camp when they was younger but when Courtney switched places with her, Nick was dating Courtney thinking she was "Ali" the whole time until he walked in on Ian kissing Courtney aka Ali at the time which furiously made him upset and walk away from her. But at the end of Ali's Pretty Little Lies, just before Real Ali pushed Courtney down the ditch hole where the workers were building the gazebo, a person appeared that was in clear recognition to Ali since she acknowledged the person but all she said was "you came". Soo did Nick realize he was dating the wrong twin and once realized the Ali he had a crush on was locked away at the Preserve soo when she got out, he welcomed her with open arms and wanted to exact revenge on Courtney for playing with his head and Spencer, Aria, Hanna and Emily were just made targets for association with Courtney which is why he willingly helped Ali with her evil misuse. **that's just my theory**

I love this series that when I found out that they were making a 13th I got so excited and marked it on my calender! This book is so good and engaging and I LOVE IT!!

Ppl need to learn to review the book and not give spoilers. The point of reader reviews are for the prospective buyer to see whether or not the book will be good and worth spending money on it. The reviews are not for people to reveal juicy plot details. Now thanks to many "reader reviews" I know what will happen to one of the supporting characters. Sorry for the rant. Thanks.

The fans of PLL should be happy a new book is coming out, not nasty! This is the 2nd-to-last book, whoever is wondering. :)

I love the Pretty Little Liars Serious. However, these books are become the sameband very boring and tiring to read. I am now getting lost in what book i am reafing and which book is which about the plot. Just end it. No more.

This book series should have ended at the 8th book, but she decided to keep going to 12 books. It still should have ended there but she decided to keep going. With all of that in mind this book had a decent plot and good writing style. Would only recommend for hardcore PLL Book Fans that just have to know who A is.

Aria sure has alot on her sleeve, don't you think? I mean come on, she was so sure Noel was my helper and now she's not even sure if he's alive. As far as her little Iceland inncident goes, she might not have been caught but lets not forget the fact that she still STOLE the painting. She can run but can she hide? As for Spencer, isn't it adorable that she found a little blogging nerd to help her crack the A case? I really thought my own half sister could do better than that. Let's not forget he lied to her face. But Spencer shouldn't be bothered with that, right? Honestly, I thought she was smarter than that to mess with a guy trying to get in on this case. A Princeton student should know better. Or, will Spencee be attending Princeton? It would be terrible if she was kicked out due to say...I don't know, jail? Emily, sweet sweet Emily. I'm sure she'd just love to see her little hottie again, and who knows? Maybe they'll end up in prison together! Hanna better watch her back. She'd always good at getting herself in trouble, but what happens when she gets her family involved? Looks like Hanna better hang on to the days being Daddy's little girl. She'll miss it. And no, I didn't forget about you. I know more than you think. Everyone has secrets. And wouldn't it be horrible if one of those secrets were to be revealed? Watch out. I'm EVERYWHERE. -A

I, for some reason, was under the impression this was the last book. So you can imagine my surprise when I get to the last page and see how it ended. This book kept me hooked the entire time and it didn't seem to drag like some of the earlier ones did. Super looking forward to the grand finale in book 14 where we FINALLY get to see who A really is.

The books are starting to get repetitive and should have ended a while ago.

While I can agree with the other reviewers that the storyline is being dragged out quite a bit, I do enjoy the series. It is filled with suspense and the characters are well played. Hopefully in the next book we will FINALLY figure out what is going on. B-
