Pretty Little Liars 12: Burned by Sara Shepard

It's spring break, and the pretty little liars are trading in Rosewood for a cruise vacation. They want nothing more than to sail into the tropical sunset and leave their troubles behind for one blissful week. But where Emily, Aria, Spencer, and Hanna go, A goes, too. From scuba diving to tanning on the upper deck, A is there, soaking up all their new secrets.
Emily is smooching a stowaway. Aria's treasure-hunting partner is a little too interested in her booty. Spencer's going overboard trying to land a new boy. And a blast—or rather, a crash—from Hanna's past could mean rough waters ahead for everyone.
The liars better tighten their life jackets. A perfect storm is brewing, and if they aren't careful, A will bury them at sea. . . .


Oh Lordy, but isn't it about time Miss Shepard gave up these books!


As much as I love reading the series it really has gone past it's heydays. I'm a firm believer of coming out while you're still on top but it seems Sara Shepard is not. I'm wondering is it her as a writer wanting to keep writing this or is she under some sort of pressure from the TV show writers who want her to keep the story going.

Repetitive. That is what this novel is. We've heard the same story several times over now. More drama happens to the Pretty Little Liars, they foolishly try to cover it up, A stalks them, they jump to all the wrong conclusions, something goes down at a big gathering toward the end of the story, and as another twist to the plot is revealed right at the end they all receive the same text from A. Hasn't this been the exact format of every book up to now?

It's gotten so ridiculous now that I have zero sympathy for these girls. They are actually committing crimes and should rightly be hounded for doing so! In my opinion I'm actually on A's side now! 

And how many times can Emily meet a new mysterious girl, fall for her and she turns out to be gay/bisexual too??? I mean COME ON!!!

Step it up or give it up Sara....
