KILLER is the sixth novel in the PRETTY LITTLE LIARS series.

The story starts off with the girls discovering what they believe to be the dead body of Ian Thomas, the accused killer of their childhood friend, Alison DiLaurentis. The girls hear a snap in the woods and quickly go for help. But by the time the cops show up to investigate, there is no evidence of a body. Nothing remains in the space where Ian was moments ago.

From this point on, the rest of the story is downhill for Spencer, Hanna, Aria, and Emily. Soon, the girls are branded as liars and can no longer go to the cops for help. Besides, Detective Wilden is acting suspicious. The girls uncover a connection between the detective, Alison's brother, Jason, and Ian Thomas from high school. How deep is the connection, and could there be a cover-up of some kind?

Throughout all of the murder drama and hunt for Ali's killer, the girls struggle to move on with their lives. But just as with the police, there are complications.

Spencer is positive she's adopted and is determined to find her birth mother. Only, once again, Spencer is taken advantage of. Emily has a new boyfriend, but his mother obviously hates her. Hanna is in a battle of wits with her step-sister, Kate. They are fighting over Aria's younger brother, Mike, and Hanna is determined to win his heart. And a chance encounter with Jason DiLaurentis rekindles the crush Aria had on him when she was younger.

KILLER is one of those books that is setting up the reader for what is to come in future installments. There is a lot of stuff going on throughout the book, yet it seems that none of it gets resolved by the time the reader gets to the final page.

Format: Hardcover
There is something VERY rotten in the Philadelphia Main Line Suburb of Rosewood.

Dramatis Personae:

Alison DiLaurentis, 13, was a bright leader of a girls' clique. The members of said clique were more like satellites than actual friends as Alison's approval tended to give her peers a social leg up. She has been discovered murdered some 4 years after the summer she completed 7th grade in Rosewood Day, a private school on Philadephia's Main Line. She, along with her satellites drop designer names at the drop of a designer hat. Alison goes missing the summer before she starts 8th grade and is later discovered to have been murdered.

Spencer Hastings, along with the other satellites discovers she has good reason to want to dim the sun around which she revolves. She tends to sputter. In an earlier installment, readers learn that she has had a history of blackouts. Her older sister, Melissa, favored to the point of excess and indulgence treats her like dog droppings. After she comes clean about plagiarizing her older sister's economics paper, she is further ostracized by her own family. To make matters worse, her grandmother does not include her in her will. The old bag stipulated that only "natural born grandchildren" stood to inherit from her vast fortune. That raises the question - is Spencer adopted or is the old bag just as unloving as her son and daughter-in-law? Remember - Spencer did describe her as not being kid friendly in an early volume.

Aria Montgomery had been having an affair with her English teacher, Ezra Fitz. Her theme song is Van Halen's "Hot For Teacher." Back in town after a 3-year stay in Iceland, Aria reluctantly re-enters Rosewood Day School and the consequences of her father's infidelity.

This is by far the best book in the series. Sara Shepard knew excactly where to end the book, leaving everyone hanging, ready for whatever comes next. I finished this book in about 6 hours, and I can hardly wait for the next book!

This series NEVER ends. Don't get me wrong, I love these books, but I am just ready to find out who the killer is, etc.

I thought this book would be the end, but no...

Other than the fact that the series now feels like it is just dragging on, this book was really good. Sara Shepard makes the series so complex, it makes you think. I love it. I love that there is a series about a murder, but it's also about upper class teenage girls. I like all the side plots and secrets the girls each have.

7 of 10 people found the following review helpful A Kid's Review on July 14, 2009
Format: Hardcover
Okay, i loved the book. I liked the story for Emily (i thought the gay-thing was boring after a bit in the other books, so i liked the last two better) and Hanna (finally more interesting than the bulimia/criminal record thing). Spencer's (who buys real estate without checking it out first and then is surprised by being screwed over?) and Aria's (Jason? god, she was dumb) stories were a bit irritating, honestly. And the ending? Shocking, maybe, but i knew it was only a matter of time before that was used. I mean, that was a little dry as well as over-used in these kinds of books. I think it was a grasp to make it more interesting,and it didn't work for me. She should have been able to do a good job without resorting to that. (I personally don't think it's back from the dead for the character at the end. I'm leaning toward, like, twin or something no one knew about.Or freaky mass hallucination. [Wouldn't be surprising, these girls are seriously beginning to lose it.])

So yea, i really liked the overall story, but it could have been better. A is getting less interesting though, and these stupid girls keep alienating/ignoring the advice of/being bitches towards their boyfriends. Psh. But the author is good enough, and the storyline is rich enough, that the book was still great. I had my favorite parts. And i had my i-want-to-strangle-these-characters moments.

Buy it :) (btw, it says kid cuz i'm not over 13, i am 13. using a parent's account. but i don't want you to think i'm a 9-yr-old reviewing it.)

More About the Author

Hello! I'm from outside Philadelphia, lived in New York for a long time, Arizona for less time, and now I'm in Pittsburgh, PA, which is way nicer than it sounds.

I've always been a writer. I made up stories about my sister's blanket, BeeBee, when I was four. From there I wrote about squareheaded creatures, an environmental saga about little yellow men who live in vegetable gardens, teenage dramas well before I was a teenager, a book series about a Japanese girl who finds out her ancestors are samaurai (and she must be one, too), a bunch of arty short stories, and some books that maybe you've heard of. The PRETTY LITTLE LIARS series is based on my experiences there...kind of. Sort of a hyperbolic version of them. Plus some random stuff thrown in.

I've also written THE LYING GAME, which is about a dead twin and an alive twin, THE HEIRESSES, which is about a rich family's curse, and THE PERFECTIONISTS, which is about five somewhat strangers who get everything they wanted...but that comes at a price. I wrote THE VISIBLES, which is about jackalopes and mental illness, and EVERYTHING WE EVER WANTED, which features a guy who discovers his ex lives on a commune.
