Unbelievable by Sara Shepard

UnvelievableUnbelievable is the fourth book of the Pretty Little Liars Series and it picks up right after the end of Perfect (book 3). Since PLL is not really something one can read out of order, I'm going to assume y'all already know what's going on.

As the book opens, Hanna is in the hospital after being hit by an SUV once she discovers who the mysterious 'A' is. Emily has been shipped off to Iowa to her super strict and conservative aunt and uncle - and devious cousins - to separate her from Maya, her sort of girlfriend. Spencer's memories of the night Ali went missing keep torturing her because she doesn't fully remember what exactly happened that night other than she and Ali got into an argument. And, finally, Aria's life is turning more and more complicated now that her boyfriend and teacher Ezra dumps her after they are caught by the police (her being a minor and he her teacher and all), she has to move in with her father Byron and his girlfriend Meredith and because she's begining to suspect someone in her former inner circle might be Ali's murderer.

A is getting closer to the girls, close enough to do some real damage instead of just spilling out their secrets. Obviously, I can't say how things develope but, by the end of Unbelievable, you know who 'A' was and there is a bunch of other things you're still wondering about.

In this book in particular, there are no new secrets and that was a bit of a let down, because it felt a bit like same old, same old to me though you do find out some new stuff but, at the same time it's not enough to give Unbelievable a sense of 'uniqueness' so to speak.

Characters and plot are still strong enough, though, so I'm going to go ahead and read Wicked (book 5) soon.
