Twisted (Pretty Little Liars #9) by Sara Shepard

Twisted (Pretty Little Liars, #9)
Blurb (from Goodreads):
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.

Twisted by Sara Shepard

My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

Twisted (Pretty Little Liars, #9)(Source: I own a copy of this book.)
Ali may have started the fire, but did she die in it? What happened to the girls in Jamaica? And what happened to Emily last summer?

This was an okay story, but I really wasn’t sure about certain plot-points.

This book surprised me a bit because I thought Ali was behind us now, but for some reason she was still playing a huge part in the girls lives, which considering she’d been absent for over a year was a little strange. When the girls once again started receiving messages from A. I was a little uncertain as to what was really going on. Do we really have yet another new A.? And does she know Gossip Girl? Because in this book they seemed eerily similar.
I was a little unsure about the Jamaica part of the storyline as what the girls were claiming was going on just seemed a little unlikely, and other things seemed a little unlikely too.
We did get some non-Ali storylines, but even these were swayed by the infamous A., and some of the girls decisions weren’t the smartest either.
The ending to this was okay, but again, I’m not sure where this series is really going now.
7 out of 10.

  1. Even though not all the books are great, I still think this series seems to be good overall for you. I might have to pick it up.
