Four pretty little liars' charmed lives, have turned into living nightmares.Emily's being shipped off to Iowa to live with her uberconservative cousins.Aria's boyfriend is behind bars-because of her.Spencer's afraid she was involved in Ali's murder.But Hanna's fate is far worse : She's clinging to life in the hospital because she knew too much.If these girls don't start listening to me, Hanna's going to look like the lucky one. ~A.
In the beginning of the book, Hanna is still in a coma and when she finally wakes up, she can't remember anything from last night.In fact, the only thing she remembers, was receiving Mona's "gift", and wearing it to her party.Girls try to push her to remember who A. is, since she told them she knew everything, before she was hit by a car.When Hanna does remember, though, they'd wish they had never found out the truth.
I absolutely loved Unbelievable!I never wanted to put it down, as I read page after page like mad.The plot is so gripping, you're bursting with anticipation every time a chapter ends.It's the first PLL book, that I didn't have a favourite character-whatever happens to each girl is very important to the story.That's what I liked best about Unbelievable. Sara Shepard chose this book to be the conclusion to A's story, and she did a very good job at it.Some things were a bit off though, like Emily's story.From her very short trip to Iowa, to her unexplainable behaviour towards her parents, who finally accepted her for what she is, and towards Maya.All that though seem like tiny details, once the story starts to unravel.Sure thing is, that Shepard's very clever writing will constantly keep you guessing who A is until the very end!
No need to fret, however.The much anticipated conclusion to A's story, doesn't necessarily mean that everything is right with the world again.Far from it!Girls must face new and terrifying ordeals, as a big question troubles everyone's mind : Could Ali still be alive?
