Book 14 in the Pretty Little Liars series opens with confirmation of what our favorite little liars—Spencer, Hanna, Aria, and Emily—were slowly piecing together: Alison DiLaurentis is A. The actual Alison, not her (late) twin, Courtney, or even Alison pretending to be Courtney pretending to be Alison. If that last sentence creates whiplash, the rest of the novel might, too, and the reveal of “Helper A” also pulls threads from much earlier in the series. In retribution for the Liars going to the police with A’s notes and threats, the girls face very grave consequences for the death of Tabitha (remember her?) in Jamaica. Ali sends the police a doctored video of the girls beating Tabitha, which lands them in legal and personal trouble. However, before they are shipped off to face charges in Jamaica, the girls find themselves in one more deadly confrontation with A and her helper. Devoted fans of the series will rejoice knowing there’s more to come in the next installment. Grades 7-10. --Courtney Jones
From the Back Cover
In Rosewood, news vans lurk outside gated drives and FBI agents are knocking on every mansion door—and it's all because four very pretty liars simply don't know how to be good. Spencer, Hanna, Emily, and Aria have been keeping killer secrets for an entire year . . . things that could land them in jail if A ever told. And now A has.
One by one, the girls' worst deeds come out, and their worlds come crashing down around them. Spencer gets kicked out of Princeton. Hanna gets kicked out of her dad's campaign—and his heart. Emily gets kicked to the curb. And Aria may get kicked out of the country.
The girls are the lowest they've ever been. They've lost everything. But A's not done yet. If A's deadly plan succeeds, the liars will have told their last lie. . . .

I felt that the past few books in the PLL series were starting to drag; it was really starting to feel like Sara Shepard was stretching the story out in order to sell more books. However, Deadly does pick up the pace and doesn't seem quite as desperate. While still predictable from time to time, Deadly does have some interesting and unexpected twists.
Without revealing too much of the plot, I will also say that it is nice to see the girls finally making some smart decisions. In the past, it has been frustrating to see the girls make the same mistakes over and over. I start to wonder how long this bullying would continue before the girls actually work with some adults to put an end to it.
And while I'm willing to suspend a certain amount logic when reading, PLL can just ask too much of me at times. Unless "A" is a super-genius (and I mean that literally), Shepard just takes it too far. Somehow "A" is everywhere and know everything. "A" can hack computers, phones, e-mail accounts and perform other types of high tech magic. And of course even though "A" is always causing so much havoc, no one can ever catches "A." While some of the PLL series have been more believable than others, I feel that Deadly's story line gets pretty unbelievable (even by PLL standards).
Although I felt this book took an already hard to believe story line and stretched it way beyond what I was able to swallow, I did feel that Deadly was faster paced and less predictable than the last few PLL books.
Pros: new changes to the story line, PLL finally seem to be learning from some of their mistakes, faster pace
Cons: way too far-fetched (there's zero forensic evidence left behind; one or two people can do everything, like hack computers and phones, tamper with videos, etc.)
This is a fantastic read. This has to be hands down one of the *best* Pretty Little Liars books. It seems that the Liars have had enough of A, and all of A's bulling, taunting, and threats. The PLL's go looking for A. As the saying goes, be careful what you wish for, because you just might get it, and the PLL's do. A isn't anyone's coward, A takes the PLL's head on. Pretty soon, other people are looking for the PLL's. A isn't just one step ahead of the PLL's, A is more like 5 or 6 steps ahead of the Liars. Then when the PLL's need help the most, the people they most trust, turn on them, and they're alone. All alone.
What makes this work is the emotional aspect to this book. We get to the the effect of the psychological mind games that A has played on the liars, and pushes one of the liars to her limits. That was a very emotional scene, and my eyes got misty because my heart for broke for the PLL that was pushed to the edge of the abyss.
This is just so much more I want to say about this book, but it would just be spoilers. Just trust me, if you've read the books in the series, then you must read it, you'll thank me later. If you haven't read the series yet, then start with the first book, and enjoy the ride.
As usual with the hardback books, if you look under the dust jacket, you get a special message from A. I love that touch to the series.
