{Synopsis} –It's springtime in suburban Rosewood, which means iced soy lattes, fresh manicures in shimmering pastels—and prom. But while everyone else is flipping through the racks at Saks in search of the perfect dress, Hanna, Spencer, Emily, and Aria are on a different kind of hunt: They're looking for A. . . .

Hanna puts her campaign for prom queen on the back burner to volunteer at the burn clinic, where one of A's victims is recovering. Emily digs into Ali's past at the mental hospital with some very crazy consequences. Spencer contacts a private eye to help her stalk her stalker. But when their sessions get a little too private, they may forget to keep their eyes on A. . . . And Aria's worried that A is even closer than she thought. When her dark secret from Iceland finally comes to light, she discovers that maybe, just maybe, the one person she's been trying to hide the truth from has known all along.

The liars are finally taking the fight to A. But no matter what they do, A's always one step ahead, ready to crush the girls completely.

{My Thoughts} – This book is full of more lies and deceit between the girls. They always seem to have someone that they assume to be “A” and it always turns out that they are wrong. Some of the things they choose to do has consequences and some of the consequences are terrible. I am beginning to wonder just how brilliant of a character “A” is given the fact that they seem to be every where and know everything. It logically isn’t possible for one person to be in so many different places at the same time. This series use to be enjoyable to me, but I am not so sure anymore. The end of the book leaves the readers with a bit of a bombshell that will make you say huh?

Final Conclusion: 2 Star Rating.
