Unbelievable

Unbelievable (Pretty Little Liars, #4)Unbelievable by Sara Shepard
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

BLUH! i can't believe this ending...

Aria, Emily, Hanna, and Spencer are mourning the death of their friend Alison. Before she died, Ali collected secrets from all the girls and threatened to expose them to their friends and families. Now, the girls are being blackmailed by the mysterious “A” who knows all those secrets and more. “A” is always watching the girls and sending them threatening texts. We are left wondering “Who killed Ali?” and “Who is A?” No one is above suspicion in this addictive series.

We are at the halfway point of the Pretty Little Liars series, and this may be the most satisfying installment yet! When we last left off, Hanna had a breakthrough and had figured out the identity of “A.” Unfortunately after the car accident she can’t remember. She starts dating Lucas, who seems good for her and I thought made Hanna more likeable. Emily’s parents try again to stifle her homosexual tendencies by shipping her off to relatives in Iowa- this after sending her to a program unsuccessfully in Perfect. Aria is dealing with the aftermath of her parents split and her doomed relationship with Ezra. And Spencer is trying out therapy to help sort out her memories.

Amidst all of the usual drama and mayhem, there are some major answers revealed. Including the identity of Ali’s killer and the circumstances of her death. As well as the identity of “A!” This was so exciting to get some answers in the series. There were some definite hints along the way that cast suspicion on “A” and finally a small mistake got “A” caught. However, we are only halfway through the series, so I’m left wondering if there is not more to the story. There’s more plot twists at the end of Unbelievable to keep you wanting more.

When you have an overarching mystery such as in this series, it’s usually a letdown when the mystery is resolved. However, Sara Shepard does a great job of setting up the next mystery and it feels like there are still more intriguing stories to be told.
