Wanted (Pretty Little Liars #8) by Sara Shepard

Wanted (Pretty Little Liars, #8)
Blurb (from Goodreads):
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.

My rating: 3.75 of 5 stars

Wanted (Pretty Little Liars, #8)(Source: I own a copy of this book.)
Ali’s killer is in jail, but more surprises lie in wait for the pretty little liars.
Is Ali’s killer really in jail? And what really happened the night Ali died?

This was another interesting instalment, where everything was finally revealed – who killed Ali, and all the twists that went along with this story so far.
It’s really difficult to talk about this without dropping spoilers, but basically everything we thought we knew was turned on its head in this book, and all the theories about who killed Alison and why were also thrown out the window.
I did think that the girls were maybe a little too gullible in this book, but it was easy to understand why they believed the things they did, and I couldn’t see all the twists that suddenly came out of the woodwork so I can’t really blame them for not putting the puzzle together either.
When all was finally revealed, boy was it a bit of a convoluted mess, and also pretty far-fetched, and it did coast on the edge of believability at points. This was a good story though, I liked the mystery, and I liked that things were finally revealed. I am a bit puzzled as to where the story will go from here though!
Overall; an interesting end to the mystery of what happened to Alison.
7.5 out of 10.
