Book Description

For years scandal has rocked Rosewood, Pennsylvania—and high school seniors Aria, Emily, Hanna, and Spencer have always been at the center of the drama. They’ve lost friends, been targeted by a ruthless stalker named A, and narrowly escaped death. And it’s not over yet.

Aria’s love life is on the fritz. Emily’s exploring her wild side. Hanna’s kissing the enemy. And someone from Spencer’s past—someone she never thought she’d see again—is back to haunt her.

But none of that compares to what happened last spring break. It’s their darkest secret yet and guess who found out? Now A is determined to make them pay for their crime, and the only thing scarier than A is the fear that maybe, just maybe, they deserve what’s coming to them.

5.0 out of 5 stars A is Unstoppable! December 6, 2011
Format:Hardcover
I was at my local Barnes and Noble when they opened to get my copy of Ruthless. I just finished it, and man, what a ride!

In this go around, all of the Pretty Little Liars are trying to put what happened on Spring Break in Jamaica behind them, but A knows what happened, and won't let them forget it. A is still a controlling factor in their lives.

Emily - In the past, she's been the perfect friend, perfect daughter, and perfect student. In the last book, Twisted, Emily started exploring her "wild side" and she continues to explore and and be a wild child, and is pretty much out of control. To make matters worse, she's getting taunting notes from A, and that just adds to Emily's troubles. She meets a new friend in Ruthless, and this friend has secrets of her own.

Spencer- This girl is in a slippery downward slope, and moving at a fast pace that's out of control. Someone from her past meets up with her, a person that Spencer has long forgot about, as usual, some secrets don't stay buried. In fact, sometimes, they bite you on the butt. With all of this is going on, Spencer has to prepare for a school play. It was interesting to see what is happening with her. A is there to witness all of it.

Hanna - She's helping her father get elected to public office, but started up a friendship with an unlikely person. She tried to fight the demons of her past, and A makes sure all of the demons are out and about.

Aria - Aria is a mess. Someone is after her boyfriend, someone from her past comes back and that just complicated things and A is there every step of the way, just to make this that much harder for Aria.

What I really like about this is the development of the characters.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun, if not a little repetitive December 19, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
What I Liked: 1) Reading PLL is like reading a tabloid, for me. Like, you can't possibly imagine how all of these crazy things are happening, yet you can't stop reading. I love being able to indulge in something like that every once in a while. It is unapologetically unbelievable, and I love it for that. Like one of those horrible reality shows when you wonder, "are you like that in real life, or are you only acting that way because there is a camera on you?" 2) Once again, we were met with more questions than answers. That's something I like about the series, but there was something different about it in Ruthless than some of the others. In Ruthless, we were met with a definite answer about one of the issues. I thought at one point everything might be all over, but of course it can't be. It was almost as if there was a story within a story. And while the main story continues, the other one was over. 3) I liked the direction the plot is going, though there were a few times I questioned the motivations of the four girls.

What I Didn't Like: 1) It almost felt like we were reliving parts of some of the other books. That was one thing that really just bothered me. I would be reading along and think, wait, didn't this already happen, just with another character? That disappointed me some, because I've always found Miz Shephard's storylines to be unique and creative. 2) Why does every book start with, "well, I don't really hang out with my old friends anymore..." How many times are they going to have a girl break-up, only to have A tie them back together. When will they figure out they are stronger as a group?

3.0 out of 5 stars Like Crack! March 25, 2012
Format:Hardcover
This series is like crack. No matter how bad, ridiculous or infuriating it gets, I always come back begging for more.

3 crack-addicting, bad decision making stars.

Perhaps you've never heard of Ms. Shepard's "Pretty Little Liars", or maybe you religiously watch every episode that airs on TV and have read all ten (now eleven) books multiple times and you are a die hard fan.

Me? I'm somewhere in the middle of the madness. I don't watch the show, but I have read all of the books (only once). No matter how awful they get, I always find myself going back for each new book. I've even read all of the books of her latest series.

I believe that does say something about the author herself. While I don't think many of the situations that occur with the girls are logical or realistic, Ms. Shepard does it in such a way that you can't help but feel deliciously intrigued. These books may never win an award, but there is a reason for their popularity.

One of those reasons is that Ms. Shepard is an author who keeps her readers on their toes. She always ends her novels with a plot twist and a cliff hanger. It may not be the strongest of endings, but her sales can certainly testify that they work. Another is that her characters are all incredibly relatable. I absolutely refuse to believe that there is any human being alive capable of making as many bad choices as all of these girls - but the fact that they do make these choices also makes them vulnerable. And vulnerability is reassuring.

Overall, if you enjoy a quick, beach read and are willing to not dissect these books too much and end up hating them, I would recommend them. I have every intention of reading the next book in the series.

3.0 out of 5 stars The central story plot in "Ruthless" is flawed, otherwise fine
While not a bad entry, the premise of "Ruthless" was flawed. My main issue is with the "primary new character" which in this case, is Kelsey. Read more

More About the Author

I am originally from outside Philadelphia, and PRETTY LITTLE LIARS is based on my experiences there...kind of. Sort of a hyperbolic version of them. Plus some random stuff thrown in.

Well, after many years of avoiding the area, I've moved back to suburban Philadelphia again. I spend most of my time eating chips and cereal straight out of the bag. I am also a proud hypochondriac. I took out my tongue piercing when I was eighteen because I thought it was giving me a sinus infection. And I often think I have a brain tumor when it's really just a headache.
