Wanted is the 8th book in the Pretty Little Liars series by Sara Shepard. As usual the novel picks up where the last one ended. What I enjoyed about this book was how neatly Shepard tied up the mystery. After 8 books you finally get all the answers you’ve been looking for, and the final Big Bad is revealed. In the synopsis according to Amazon:
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.
This book was one of the best in the series, and was extremely difficult to put down. What I don’t like, however, is that Shepard continued the series after it was brought to its conclusion. I haven’t read the other books past book 8, and I’m not sure I will. Though they seem interesting the main reason I read the series was to find out the identity of “A,” and be able to compare the book to what is happening on the show. If you continue, just be aware that the later books have nothing to do with Alison DiLaurentis’ murder .
