In Rosewood, majestic estates sprawl for acres, and Tiffany toggle bracelets dangle from every girl's wrist. But not all that glitters is gold, and the town harbors secrets darker than anyone could imagine—like the truth about what really happened the night Alison DiLaurentis went missing. . . .

Back in middle school, Ali plucked Emily, Hanna, Aria, and Spencer from obscurity and turned them into the beautiful, popular girls everyone wanted to be. Ali was the best friend they ever had. But she also made them do terrible things and taunted them with their worst secrets. Now, three years later, all their questions about Ali have finally been answered and they can put this awful chapter of their lives behind them. Or so they think.

Not every story has a happy ending, especially when four pretty little liars have done so many wicked things. In the dramatic conclusion of Sara Shepard's bestselling Pretty Little Liars series, Emily, Hanna, Aria, and Spencer could get everything they've ever wanted—unless A has one more horrifying twist in store.

Reading the last book in a series is always hard. You get so used to waiting for the next book to come out, and not really knowing all of the details. The Pretty Little Liars series was no different. I'm going to try to keep this review spoiler free, for those of you still reading.

I was really excited for this book. I gathered up so many questions while reading these books and they were all answered. All of the plot points ended very neatly. Shepard was able to keep this last book very exciting but still pull it all together in the end without leaving us confused.

Now onto the important things. There is a plot twist, one that some people have guessed and in return were called crazy. Now it makes perfect sense. We find out who new "A" is and Ali's killer. I have to say that Shepard did a wonderful job on the whole series. Usually when I read a series there are a few books that just dragged or I just could have skipped without missing anything important. This can not be applied to The Pretty Little Liars series. Every book had me at the edge of my seat.

Overall I have to say that Wanted was a great end to a great series. I am defintely considering reading her new upcoming series.

Do you suggest reading this series? I have been thinking about it, but I don't know if I should.
