Overview

In Rosewood, majestic estates sprawl for acres, and Tiffany toggle bracelets dangle from every girl's wrist. But not all that glitters is gold, and the town harbors secrets darker than anyone could imagine—like the truth about what really happened the night Alison DiLaurentis went missing. . . .

Back in middle school, Ali plucked Emily, Hanna, Aria, and Spencer from obscurity and turned them into the beautiful, popular girls everyone wanted to be. Ali was the best friend they ever had. But she also made them do terrible things and taunted them with their worst secrets. Now, three years later, all their questions about Ali have finally been answered and they can put this awful chapter of their lives behind them. Or so they think.

Not every story has a happy ending, especially when four pretty little liars have done so many wicked things. In the dramatic conclusion of Sara Shepard's bestselling Pretty Little Liars series, Emily, Hanna, Aria, and Spencer could get everything they've ever wanted—unless A has one more horrifying twist in store.

Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Heather Christensen
The final installment in this popular series continues to offer more melodrama and outlandish plot twists. Three years after the murder of their best friend, Ali, the four teen girls known as the Pretty Little Liars are finally ready to get on with their lives. The capture of Billy—the murderer and author of a slew of threatening notes—should allow Spencer, Emily, Aria, and Hanna to relax; however, the shocking news that Ali had a twin sister hidden away in a mental hospital sends them into a tailspin, and the carefully fabricated web of deception slowly begins to unravel around them. The third-person narrative alternates between the viewpoints of each of the four girls. Readers who haven't read the other books in the series may have trouble keeping up with the previous plot developments, many of which are turned on their head in this conclusion. The characters are shallow and somewhat stereotyped, but the fast-paced plot spirals wildly to the end. Fans of the series will probably find satisfaction in the happy, though somewhat open, ending. Product placements and branding abound in this story of rich girls behaving badly, but with a television series to help it along, expect this teenage soap opera to fly off the shelves.

Children's Literature - Haley Maness
Four former friends—Hanna, Spencer, Aria, and Emily—have been reunited after the disappearance of Allison, the fifth member of their group of friends. After the girls reunite, mysterious text messages containing well-buried secrets begin to arrive. This book was published after the "end" of the "Pretty Little Liars" series, to which it belongs. This series also formed the basis for a popular television show. Readers originally enjoyed this series for its quality writing and intriguing plot twists. While the plot of this book is still intriguing, the quality of the writing has clearly diminished since publication of the first novel. The plot is like a last attempt by a bad soap opera to avoid cancellation. Although it may be a compelling beach read, much of the dialogue and plot twists can be found in the author's earlier novels. Many racy themes are found throughout this title, which clearly function as plot fillers. Readers should expect a disappointing read lacking in depth when they bring this book to the beach. Teenagers who enjoyed the original books in the series would also enjoy the TV show. Reviewer: Haley Maness
