Book review: Twisted (Pretty Little Liars #9) by Sara Shepard

My edition: Hardcover, published in 2011 by HarperTeen, 305 pages.

Description: It’s been a year since the torturous notes from A stopped and the mystery of Alison DiLaurentis’s disappearance was finally put to rest. Now seniors in high school, Aria, Spencer, Hanna and Emily are older, but they’re not any wiser. The Pretty Little Liars have more secrets than ever - twisted secrets that could destroy the perfect lives they’ve worked so hard to rebuild.

Aria’s jealous of her boyfriend’s new exchange student. Spencer’s getting a little too cozy with her soon-to-be-stepbrother. Hanna’s one scandalous photo away from ruining her dad’s Senate campaign. And Emily will do anything to get a swim scholarship.

Worst of all: Last spring break in Jamaica, they did something unforgivable. The girls are desperate to forget that fateful night, but they should know better than anyone that all secrets wash ashore... eventually.

Rating:



I was surprised to find out another book in the series had been published (and there are a fair few more to come apparently) as the last one closed of the Ali storyline properly and it seemed the girls could finally live their lives without looking over their shoulder for A all the time.

But I was wrong, as once more Ali rises from the grave (or does she?) to terrorize the girls and many more secrets and lies get revealed along the way.

The books continue to be awesome and clever and I have no idea how Shepard writes both this series as well as her new The Lying Game books so quickly (with at least a new one being released each six months) without the quality of them being tainted. But I do hope she keeps it up as I cannot wait for the next installment in the series!

One thing that was different for me while reading this book compared to the previous Pretty Little Liars ones is that I am now watching the series on television and it's odd reading about the characters and imagining the actors, as they are not always identical.
