Review ~ #PLL Unbelievable by Sara Shepard

TITLE: Unbelievable 
AUTHOR: Sara Shepard
COPYRIGHT: 2008
TYPE: young adult
PAGES: 335
SERIES:  yes
1. Pretty Little Liars
4. Unbelievable

REASON FOR READ:
Well come on I read the first 3 and had to know what happens. PLUS I love me some PLL show so I wanted to catch up on the books.

SUMMARY (from back of the book):
Emily's been 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. 

Who are the MAJOR Characters?
(OMG who isn’t?!)
Hanna
Aria
Spencer
Emily

Who are the MINOR Characters?
Again I ask who isn’t?!
Sean – Aria’s boyfriend
Mike – Aria’s brother
Aria’s mom, dad and dad’s girlfriend
Mr. Fitz AKA Ezra – Aria’s forbidden love
Lucas – new one that was just introduced
Hanna’s mom
Officer Wilden – Hanna’s Mom’s boyfriend
Mona – Hanna’ BFF
Mona’s new BFFs
Melissa – Spencer’s sister
Spencer’s parents
Emily’s sister, mom, dad
Maya – Emily’s girlfriend

Did it flow with the last volume was it a connection story or did it just start a new story with same characters? Yeah actually it really did. It picked up right where we left off and ran with it. There were a lot of pieces to try and fit together, but the author did a fantastic job of doing that.

What is this story about? It is about 4 girls who lost their BFF in 7th grade and now someone is harassing them with all their dirty little secrets

When is this story taking place? Junior year of high school

Where are we at during this story? Rosewood High and neighborhood

Why is the character acting the way he is or why is this happening? The girls are trying to figure out who A is and navigate through the roughest prep school ever. Add to that they have the CRAPPIEST parents known to man.

How does it get resolved (SPOILERS MAY BE INCLUDED)
A is dead
The liar's lives seem to be going back to normal

Will there be another? yes

Favorite part or line from story:
I have to say the part with Hanna and Lucas are really cute and I think this might be the relationship that the show uses for Haleb (Hanna + Caleb)

Overall thoughts:
HOLY CRAP. Well shitballs I didn't see this coming and I really, really want to go into the differences between this and the show. Needless to say I guess in the books
SPOILER ALERT
Toby is freaking dead for good. That was as shocker. Jenna knew what Ali was going to do and planned it with her b/c Toby was molesting her WTF?! Then as if that wasn't enough Mona is A (which she was in the show so no shocker there) but in the books SHE FREAKING DIES she's dead seriously and yet there is still another A OMFG as if that wasn't enough Hanna's mom is moving to SINGAPORE seriously?! so Hanna now has to live with her dad and horrible step everything. Aria's mom finally realized what she did was HORRIBLE and freaking Meredith is prego with Aria's new 1/2 sibling MIND BLOWN.
SPOILER OVER
Needless to say this book kept me up WAY past my bedtime

FINALGRADES:
Plot/Story: A this one blew my freaking mind
Character Development: B the girls are still making the same damn mistakes and yet they seem to be learning from them
Emotional Reaction: A there were a lot of OMG did she? No she didn’t? Freaking A she did? How in the hell is that going to work? Moments.

Final Grade: A

Would you recommend this story? Sure if you like to read about drama but I for sure wouldn’t let girls younger than 15 read it.

Is this a part of a reading challenge? No.
