5.0 out of 5 stars Love these books! May 14, 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Confession: I am a 37-year-old woman who loves to read YA. Beginning with Judy Blume when I was a pre-teen and rekindled by the Hunger Games trilogy a few years ago, my affinity for these books runs deep (and I suspect I am not alone in my demographic).
I enjoyed Pretty Sly, the second in this series, even more than the first book. What it comes down to is that Elisa Ludwig is a great writer--the books are in turn funny, suspenseful, unpretentious and just the right amount of edgy. She has really fleshed out the character of Willa, creating a flawed yet sympathetic protagonist, and damn if I'm not totally caught up in the romance/love triangle part of the storyline. To call a book a "page-turner" is a total cliche, but that's the best way to describe Pretty Sly. The bummer is having to wait for the next book!

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than the first! May 5, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition
In Pretty Crooked, we met fifteen-year-old Willa Fox as she stole from the rich kids and gave to the poor ones at Valley Prep high school. In this sequel, things have escalated beyond high school theft. Willa is now infamously known as the Sly Fox, with her own fans and paparazzi to boot. Not only has her life been thrust into the public’s eye, but her house has been ransacked and her mom has disappeared leaving only a mysterious note. Her friend/crush Aiden offers to help, and they end up both violating their probation and skipping town in hopes of finding her mother. Now on the lam, Willa soon realizes that not all is as it seems and they are in far more danger than she ever could of imagined.

Full of mystery, sweet teen romance, road trip adventures, and nail-biting suspense- Pretty Sly is a great sequel! I enjoyed it better than I did Pretty Crooked, because the events of the first book were really just leading up to what happens in this one. Things get way more interesting as Willa delves deeper into her past and learns more about herself and her family. The only thing that holds me back from loving these books is that the characters were simply too immature and petulant for me to like. That being said, I thought Aiden was the perfect partner-in-crime for Willa—cute, persistent, and up for anything. Willa was again hard to like, but I found her to at least be a little more tolerable than she was in the first book (probably because I sympathized with her more). I can’t really say a lot more without spoiling things, but I will say that this ending will surprise! I am definitely anticipating the next and final book in this trilogy.

Just as with the first, Pretty Sly was a fun quick read.

(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss.)
This is book 2 in the 'Pretty Crooked' series, and kicks off where book 1 left off.
**Warning – some unavoidable spoilers for book 1 'Pretty Crooked'.**
Willa has just come home to find her house trashed, and her mother gone, and she's not sure what to do.
When she then receives an email from her mother saying that she's left and not to try and find her, Willa decides to do exactly that – not only violating her own terms of probation, but also dragging her remaining friends down with her.
What has happened to Willa's mother? Why is she running? And what from? Can Willa find her? And will she like what her mother has to say when she finally finds her?

This was an interesting sequel, and I did think it was slightly better than 'Pretty Crooked', although I still didn't agree with a lot of Willa's thoughts and ideas.

Willa continued to have some pretty strange ideas in this book. In the first book I didn't like how she thought that stealing from someone rich and giving it to someone poor was the 'right' thing to do, and didn't think she was really thinking rationally, and in this book, she continued with this slightly deluded way of thinking. Just when she'd say something and I'd think that maybe she was starting to feel guilty over her actions, she would then say something to totally contradict that.
It kinda floored me how she felt that she should be proud over her stealing, and then later followed this up with 'Stealing was wrong. So wrong. But it was so exciting.' - I think she maybe has a little adrenalin addiction forming there.

The plot line in this one was quite different to the plot line in 'Pretty Crooked'.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Mystery, could have done without the romance March 20, 2014
By Jill
I received a copy of this novel for review from the author, so I really wanted to love this novel. And I really tried to love it. I did not love this novel. I did like it. But I wasn't dying to sit down and read it, keep me up late at night, that kind of read. And here is why (I think). The novel jumped all over the place trying to be two different types of novels and it never really married into one novel. At times Willa was in love with Aiden. Cow eyed, stars in the sky, head over heels in love with Aiden. Yes, it's insta love. But I believe when you're being chased by cops and thieves and the FBI and breaking all kinds of laws that it adds to a heightened sense of feelings. There could be no feelings at all between them when the story is over. There is just this desperation right now that Willa feels and Aiden and her had something kindling before the trouble in this book started. And then, Willa does a 180 and decides she can't trust Aiden because he has these secrets and he won't tell her what they are and she reads his text messages which puts her in a tizzy. Really, if you aren't prepared for what might be in the text message, DON'T READ IT!

I know this isn't my format I usually use but it just doesn't work for this review.

The other novel, in this novel, was the straight up mystery. Now that was a good story. I couldn't imagine why Willa's super protective mother would leave her alone at the age of 15. She was supposed to live with Cherise's family. But Cherise wasn't speaking to Willa. And did she ask Cherise's parents? Who does that?
Apparently Willa's mom. But that is just the tip of the iceberg. Ludwig does a great job of leading Willa and Aiden (sometimes others) on a scavenger hunt for clues as to where to find Willa's mom.
