Wanted by Sara Shepard

WantedWARNING - Review of the LAST book of the Pretty Little Liars Series, might contain spoilers of previous books.

Just when they thought they were done and over with A, and that Ali's killer was finally caught, Hanna, Emily, Aria and Spencer realize that they don't know the half of it. There are still some very dangerous, twisty secrets hiding in Rosewood. And they still have their own drama to get through.

As per usual, Spencer's family life is less than great, her mother is practically a zombie and her sister lays all the blame on Spencer. Hanna's dad is always taking her evil stepsister's side, and her Mom is so far away she feels a bit forgotten, plus she's sliding down in the Rosewood Day's totem pol of popularity. Emily, I'm not sure what her problem is anymore. And Aria has to juggle her new relationship with Noel Khan - a typical rich Rosewood guy - and living at home with her dad and his pregnant girlfriend while trying to avoid her Mom's sleazy new boyfriend.

Everything grinds to a halt with the arrival of a new girl, Courtney.

And that's all I'm saying about it.

Okay, so I'm not going to spoil you the ending, just say that it was WAY twisted, but sort of fitting for the series. I had a different problem with this Wanted and is that when I say everything grinds to a halt, I mean it. All the girl's problems, which had kept the story going in the last couple of books, suddenly weren't there anymore, it all went to this new story line, and the issues weren't addressed until the very end which felt a lot like an after thought.

So, it's not bad, it's an OK conclusion to the series and all, but it sort of felt rushed and I really wanted to see them solve their problems, not just been told they had.
