** spoiler alert ** Unbelievable by Sara Shepard is my favorite book the Pretty Little Liars series. It is the fourth book in the series after Pretty Little Liars, Flawless, and Perfect. Unbelievable is the most intense and eventful book so far.

I had my theories and I thought I had figured out who A was until I started reading this book. It continues following Hanna, Aria, Emily, and Spencer as the mysterious “A” stalks them. A’s threats became more frightening after a slip when Hanna discovers who A is from an unblocked number. On her way to inform her friends, Hanna is hit by an SUV, which puts her in a coma.

Emily is shipped off to Iowa after her “de-gaying” fails. She is sent to live with her very strict aunt and uncle but she discovers that her cousins actually go out and party all night. She sneaks out with them and meets a girl named Trista who she becomes close friends with. The following morning, Emily and her cousins get caught but they put the blame on Emily causing her to run away back to Rosewood. Trista follows Emily back home and Maya, Emily’s girlfriend, sees them almost kissing.

Spencer continues to lie about writing the essay that won her the Golden Orchid award. She plagiarized her sister, Melissa’s, essay but her parents don't want to fess up to it because they don't want to ruin their image. Spencer gets into a fight with Melissa and pushes her down the stairs yet she blacked out when it happens. She discovers the she has been blacking out since she was younger and blacked out the night of Ali’s murder causing her to believe she had something to do with it.

Aria’s relationship with her English teacher, Ezra had come to a stop. Aria’s ex boyfriend followed her to Ezra’s apartment and calls the police. The police show up and arrest Ezra, leaving Aria to go live with her father and his mistress.

The suspense of this book leaves you wanting to know more after every chapter. The readers find out a great deal about the “Jenna thing” that haunted them and caused Jenna’s blindness. Her stepbrother, Toby, touched her while Ali was setting off the firecrackers. Ali saw this and misfired them causing Jenna’s blindness but Hanna’s best friend Mona was there to see it as well. Mona turns out to be the mysterious A and takes Spencer into her car and drives to the Floating Man Quarry. Mona tries to kill Spencer but they fight and Spencer pushes her off the cliff, killing her. Readers are left unsure about whom Ali’s actual murderer was but Melissa’s boyfriend, Ian, is convicted of the crime for dating Ali at the same time. Ian pleads guilty but is stuck in jail until proven so. But at the end of the book, Emily swears she saw Ali, which sets the stage for Wicked.
