Synopsis: In idyllic Rosewood, Pennsylvania, where Burberry earmuffs keep diamond-studded ears warm, four very pretty girls have done some very wicked things. . . .

High school juniors Hanna, Spencer, Emily, and Aria have paid dearly for their sins. A stalker named "A" terrorized them for months and revealed their darkest secrets. But now that A's true identity has been revealed, the girls can finally go back to their pretty little lives.

Only, once a pretty little liar, always a pretty little liar--and these girls just can't help but be bad. Hanna will do anything to be Rosewood's queen bee. Spencer starts stealing . . . from her parents. Emily can't stop thinking about her new boyfriend. And Aria approves a little too strongly of her mom's taste in men.

As the secrets get darker and the scandals juicier, the consequences turn deadly. After all, girls who forget the past are condemned to repeat it. And in Rosewood, someone is always watching. . .
My Review
Spoiler Alert! Because this is the fifth book in the Pretty Little Liars series, there will be spoilers. So if you haven't read these books yet, come back to this review when you have.
Because this is the fifth book in the series, I'm going to keep my review of Wicked really short. I really enjoyed Wicked. The characters are still the same, and the writing style and idea of the plot are still the same. And overall, I didn't really have any major problems with it, but I did have a couple small ones I wanted to talk about.
1. The fact that we still don't know who Ali's killer is: I honestly thought it was Ian, but after finishing the book, we're told its not. I mean, seriously, how long is it going to take to find out? Will we finally find out in book ten?
2. The characters are getting boring: After five books of their dark secrets, they just aren't really that dark anymore. Each character practically does the same thing they did in the previous book.
3. Some one always dies at the end of each book: Come on, is it really necessary.
Rating: 5/5 worms
Other than those few things, I really enjoyed Wicked. My rating may have been a little lenient, but I loved the other books so much.
