Unbelievable by Sara Shepard

I just finished reading the final book in the Pretty Little Liars series by Sara Shepard. Unbelievable was just more of the same really. I really think that the series could have been condensed and not so dragged out. When the climax of the story finally hit, it was over instantaneously and then ended rather abruptly. It's one of those books I wasn't sure why I was reading because it aggravated me so much, but at the same time I HAD to know who A was. I even cheated and flipped to the back to look because I was getting so impatient. It also had lots of my number one pet peeves--pop culture references. I know they make teen books seem edgy and trendy, but they also date them really quickly if not done right. There was once reference to supermodel, Petra Nemcova's tsunami tragedy that I found flat out offensive. Am I being too sensitive? Or am I just getting too old to read teen books? (I hope not!)



But now I've moved onto Meg Cabot's Airhead, which so far has me perplexed and intrigued. I can't wait to read more....
