Rating: 4 stars
In picture-perfect Rosewood, Pennsylvania, ash-blond highlights gleam in the winter sun and frozen lakes sparkle like Swarovski crystals. But pictures often lie— and so do Rosewood's four prettiest girls.
Hanna, Aria, Spencer, and Emily have been lying ever since they became friends with beautiful Alison DiLaurentis. Ali made them do terrible things—things they had to keep secret for years. And even though Ali was killed at the end of seventh grade, their bad-girl ways didn't die with her.
Hanna's on a mission to corrupt Rosewood's youth, starting with a very attractive sophomore. Aria's snooping into her boyfriend's past. Spencer's stealing— from her family. And pure little Emily's abstaining from abstinence.
The girls should be careful, though. They thought they were safe when Ali's killer was arrested and A's true identity was finally revealed. But now there's a new A in town turning up the heat. And this time Rosewood is going to burn.
I've seen quite a few reviews sayig that they didn't think this book was very good, but to be honest I liked this book. This book seems to keep coming back to one flash-back to when Alison was alive and how the other girls are trying to steal her piece of a flag for something called the "Time Capsule" but it's all explained in the book. Anyway, I thought this book was really, really good I thought that reading the same storyline for six books, but Shepard has made these books so entertaining and mysterious that you can't put them down and this book is definitley no exception. The one thing I didn't like about this book was the last page, it was very unrealistic, but even though it was very unrealistic it completley changes what you think is happening in the books so it's not a bad thing. Overall I thought this book was really good and I can't wait to read the next one, and I also think if your looking for a break from the whole Vampire/Wolf craze or just want to read a fun kind of "girly" series for a change this may be the series for you.
