A tome that continues to stand out frankly from the series which, by comparison seems gentillette. At the beginning of the book Hanna is in a coma, Emily is sent to DesMoines at her aunt anti-sex, the plagiarism of Spencer was unmasked and she discovers violent (with memory loss, cf previous tome) and wonders if she Was able to kill Ali, when at Aria, she has no roof since Sean caught her with Ezra (who spent the night in jail). Except for Em and Aria, the girls do not seem to have friendly contacts at the beginning of the book (what a contrast but what a contrast !!)
Then everything accelerates abruptly and even goes a little too fast … Many false leads, and it’s pretty messy 🙁
For the girls :
Aria: it is a little non-existent in this tome from a personal life perspective … On the other hand I liked his discussion with Jenna. I was very surprised at the reality of what actually happened the night Jenna lost sight and on how the character of Toby is written at the base … The relationship between Byron and Meredith also takes a turn interesting.
Hanna: I prefer the one of the series, this one is superficial and rather hollow. I find it difficult to find it sympathetic and I find it much less touching than in the series. On the other hand I like his relationship with Lucas and the absence of Caleb (which does not exist, at least for now). The end also promises an interesting sequel for her.
Spencer: Waouhhhh I’ve always loved Spence but I think it’s the best-worked character. I really like the complexity of her relationship with Melissa. As well as passages with Ian obviously …
Emily: really not very interesting, I liked the passage with Trista but the character annoys me in general.
For the rest: the identity of A is revealed in this volume and to my surprise, A knows a tragic end. Ian is arrested for Ali’s murder. The girls also find their friendship (it took 4 volumes). Unlike the series, there are deaths.
The most: a history less sweet pink than that of the series. Heroines much less “nice”
The less: always a lot of placement of brands and for the blow a story that goes way too fast to my taste.
In short: Always as entertaining and pleasant to read, despite a little too quickly settled intrigue. Girls much more “human” and therefore credible.
My rating: 7/10
