E with is a punishment I don t understandOddest Misunderstanding of Sexuality 1 Emily hadn t even been offended and that worried her too if gay jokes no onger bothered her did that mean she wasn t gay No Why would the gender of the people you are sexually attracted to be inexorably inked to your tolerance of jokesharassment Also why is Emily so stupid Oddest Misunderstanding of Sexuality 2 So does this mean you rebi Or what I don t know what I am Emily answered uietly Maybe I just ikepeople Maybe it s the person not necessarily their gender So bi then Like he said What exactly does Emily think bisexuality means if not exactly what she just specifiedOnce again the majority of this book was just rephrasing of previous scenes from the series with occasional new nonsense sprinkled in Surely there has to be some significant new plot development in the next book to keep this series dragging on 35 stars spoilers for the previous books in this seriesThis series has always created mixed feelings for me and rightly so It s a thriller but at the same time its pitched for its entertainment value and that really is its best feature I never know what to expect going into this books something simply amusing or something with a but chill factor Wicked was the first book that I can happily say that managed to create a perfect blend of those two elements The book started off a ittle slow and with an almost hesitant tone But I understood that the readers were heading into uncharted territories and the author had to carefully set everything up for the new disasters about to fall the girls but not hint at anything too much after we thought that everything was practically over While the plotline acked the action of some of the previous book it made up for it with the an incredible Natural Blonde level of suspense and just general eeriness Ioved the final third and have to say that while it wasn t scary I definitely had goosebumps and was eagerly flipping the pages with anticipation I also enjoyed most of the subplots for once though they were a ittle repetitive and some were simply rehashes of the ast book s secretsI was a ittle dissatisfied with the ack of character development though especially concerning Hanna and Emily I find them both irritating and I am always tempted to skim their sections Hanna was just too bitchy as always I didn t Land of a Thousand Hills: My Life in Rwanda like the way she treated Lucas and theack of exploration into her grief frustrated me There was a great opportunity there for some tremendous character development and I was saddened that wasn t tapped Emily s excessive giggling and crying bothered me ike always Spencer and Aria remained consistent though and I still adored reading about them both Overall not much happened in this seuel but the suspense factor worked wonders I m eager to pick up Killer as soon as I can Reviewed by Jaglvr for TeensReadToocomIan Thomas is in jail awaiting trial and the girls are able to relax and return to their ives Or can they Just when the reader thought that the mystery of A has been solved at the end of UNBELIEVABLE bizarre events await the girls of Rosewood Hanna Spencer Emily and Aria slowly try to settle back into their normal ives Hanna is working through the trauma of earning that her best friend tried to kill her She tries to If My Love Were a Fire Truck: A Daddy's Love Song live with her soon to be step sister Kate and build up new friendships at school Spencer is dealing with the cold shoulder she is receiving from her family And through her grandmother s will Spencer has justearned that she might be adopted Aria has ventured to an art exhibit on her own only to Write It When I'm Gone: Remarkable Off-The-Record Conversations with Gerald R.

Finally behind bars the girls think they're safe But those who forget the past are condemned to repeat it And they should know by now that I'm always watchi. Spencer s grandmother dies and Space Kid leaves each of her grandchildren 2 million except for Spencer I was too distracted by the disgusting privilege of the Hastings family to care why but I assume it s because Spencer will turn out to be illegitimateadopted Meanwhile Aria s new inappropriateove interest turns out to have all the combined flaws of her Circumstantial Evidence: Death, Life, and Justice in a Southern Town last two being both older and involved with someone she knows in this case her own mother Since absolutely nothing of interest came of the previous two unsuitableiaisons I don t have high hopes for this storyline Ian is released on bail due to his mum developing Plot Convenient Cancer and immediately afterward the girls all receive another A message This means that A 2 is obviously not Ian but naturally we have to sit through page after page of various people assuming that it is and telling the police as much After all they all saw him on the news report putting his hand into his pocket And what s kept in pockets Mobile phones obviously Case closed The usual nothing much occurs Emily takes up a ot of pages falling in ove with stereotypical sensitive musician type Isaac who is as intensely boring as she is Hanna decides to be best friends with her three worst enemies which is hard to care about if you re not 10 years old and an idiot Aria s family bond with her mum s new boyfriend over their mutual hatred of all Icelandic people who are apparently weird Hanna continues to drop her boyfriend every time she has any friends and then expect him to pick up the pieces when she falls out with them Ian suddenly appears and tells Spencer that there s something very important she doesn t know related to Alison s death but he can t tell her what it is yet because it s not near enough to the end of this cycle Mike continues to harass Emily for being a Every Drop for Sale: Our Desperate Battle Over Water lesbian Spencer jumps onto the prophetic dream bandwagon seeing a vision of an older and a younger Alison aged 13 and 12 respectively arguing with each other over Ian Luckily she can tell the difference because she is able to match any outfit of Alison s with the time and date she wore it anywhere up to 4 years ago As can all of Alison s other friends Obviously It increasingly seems that I am supposed to believe that Alison isiterally haunting people s dreams whenever the plot is getting a bit thin although why she can t find anything better to do as a ghost than offer the vaguest of useless clues and bicker with herself over boys I m not sure Alison s family appear now and again and we are informed that they are behaving weirdly although nothing in the writing indicates this After endless running away crying and making a scene in public places Emily finally tells her new boyfriend that she used to go out with a girl and he graciously accepts this which is exactly as you would expect from the smug type of Christian he representsThe trial is eventually reached but unfortunately doesn t get very far as it turns out that Ian has escaped the Rosewood police who are on typically effective form and disappeared In response the police amp up the security on the girls although for some reason this personalised security only applies when they re at a party Spencer fails to tell the police that she has seen Ian basically because she can t be bothered Everyone continues to drone on incessantly about the flag hunt thing from 4 years ago which they have suddenly simultaneously decided is massively relevant The magical website which Spencer joined automatically finds her a potential birth mother by using only Spencer s name and address which seems a touch unlikely Hanna continues to be stupid that a normal human mind can comprehend Spencer joins in by deciding to dig up the bin bad they buried at the beginning of the book because she thinks Alison told her to do so in a dream Inside it she finds a sketch Aria drew of Alison and Ian 4 years ago and uses it as actual concrete evidence of their feelings and emotions at that time The only actual clue she finds is yet another hint about the flag hunt thing which I very much do not care about Meanwhile in yet another example of Rosewood s excellent parenting Hanna s father punishes her for bullying her step sister by decreeing that they can now only attend social events if they are together Which I m sure will resolve matters Then for some reason the girls all end up running

mysteriously disappearedcue eye roll here Somehow it continues There s another A We still don t know who killed Alison It s almost as though the previous four books were a total waste of time And Cycle Two beginsIn the flashback prologue we are re introduced to every single Rosewood Day student whose name has ever been mentioned in the books all of whom are entranced by some nonsensical annual treasure hunttime capsule thing the magnitude of which Shepard assures me does not need explaining ALL I LEARN FROM THIS IS I earn from this is the whole of the school grounds must be full of buried flags which no one either currently or in the future could be interested in I suppose the whole matter can serve as a microcosmic representation of Rosewood s attitudes in general though the focus is entirely on the privilege of winning the competition and the glamour of being recognised but no one stops to think what the actual purpose of burying time capsules full of decorated flags is since there is no purpose It s all just fuss and glamour around an empty centre designed so that someone can be the best at something and everyone else can be osersAt any rate once we have heard once again about how embarrassed both Hanna and Emily are of their hair colour poop brown and chlorine greenish respectively as we are told repeatedly in each book the story proper begins The four girls are now having group sessions with a grief counsellor which means we have to hear
every plot point from the previous four books reiterated The counsellor s advice is to put all the items which remindplot point from the previous four books reiterated The counsellor s advice is to put all the items which remind of Alison into a bin bag and bury them which is not only uite stupid but also pretty much what they decided to do off their own bat at the end of the ast book So I m not really sure what their families are paying the very best grief counselor in the Philadelphia area for Particularly since none of them seem especially grief stricken Still I suppose they may as well waste money on unnecessary pseudo therapy as on anything else The rehashing of old events from the previous books drags on tediously for some time eavened with the occasional new development Apparently the A blackmail notes have become a nationwide phenomenon which seems rather wishful thinking on Shepard s part Otherwise nothing much is happening Hanna is so stupid she keeps trying to send Mona texts about mani pedis forgetting that Mona is in fact dead and that prior to her demise she tried to kill Hanna Mike continues to be a sexual pervert but a girl has unwisely agreed to go on a date with him Aria does the talking to someone at an art show and realising too ate he s the artist storyline but she s not concerned because she can tell by the way the artist in uestion sexually assaults her just after they meet that he thinks she s sexy and since he is a man this is flattering and she would Old Yeller like to sleep with him Spencer is annoyed that she is beingightly punished for the essay competition cheating thing which is still being mentioned as though it was in any way interesting Spencer s male euivalent Andrew continues to clumsily express sexual interest in her despite her numerous previous rebuffs Emily watches a Christian rock band at her Flying by the Seat of My Pants: Flight Attendant Adventures on a Wing and a Prayer local church and notices that the maleead singer has the same shoes as her She then gets a feeling Lincoln: An Illustrated Biography like electricity flowing through her and is suddenly not aesbian any Apparently Jesus can cure gays after all I m uncertain how much of this is deliberate and how much is down to massive stupidity uite a On Being Human: Reflections on Life and Living lot of time is taken up with Hanna wondering how she could possibly have failed to notice for 3 years that her best friend was a deluded psychopath who knew all her secrets and wanted her dead even though they were incredibly close andoved each other Frommers Irreverent Guide to Walt Disney World like sisters Hanna is pretty thick but it does stretch credulity that even someone as dense as her could have been completely unaware of the situation Strangely however having the characters of the book as baffled as the reader as to how they are supposed to take the plot seriously does not make the books anyess awful The new plots continue the sub soap opera awfulness of the earlier books. In idyllic Rosewood Pennsylvania four very pretty girls just can't help but be bad Hanna will do anything to be Rosewood's ueen bee Spencer's digging up her.
