This was such a good read. If you've read the books up until now, then you know what to expect.
In this go around, there are a few High Schools that are going on an eco friendly cruise, and some of the things they do on the cruise will be used for class credit. Rosewood is one of the schools that goes, and where Rosewood goes, A is sure to follow.
Hanna-A good part of the story is focused on Hanna. Something she does early on in the book plays a key role on the plot. Something happens, and Hanna and the Pretty Little Liars thinks nobody saw it, but of course A did, and uses it as a weapon against the Pretty Little Liars. When she's on the cruise, she runs into someone from her past, and trusts her, but is that a mistake?
Spencer-She continues her friendship with Reefer, and someone besides A, sets their sights on Spencer and will do anything to take her out.
Aria-She starts us a friendship with someone, but at what cost? Then she's given something that will change her life.
Emily-Is getting very close to someone she met on the cruise, but this person has secrets that she has to keep to herself, at all costs.
With all of this going on, the Pretty Little Liars realize that A is on the ship and they try to find out who A is. The problem is that A is set to spill all of the Pretty Little Liars secrets at any given time. That's all I really want to say about the plot, anything more, and I'd be giving things away.
I was glad to see that The Jamaican Thing is still in play. We learn more about that, and some pretty hard choices that The Pretty Little Liars have to make.
This book sets up the next on in the series, Crushed, beautifully. Again, I can't say too much because it would be spoilers. Crushed comes out June 4, 2013. Now, that being said, on Jan. 2, 2013 comes out Pretty Little Liars:Pretty Little Secrets Book 2. This is a prequel to the series, and its' from Ali's point of view.
If you buy the book, and take off the dust jacket, you'll get a special message from A!
If you've read all the books, then you know what to expect, and won't be let down. Let's face it, this is A's world, and we just live in it.
