Pretty Little Liars: The Strong Shall Survive
For fans of the popular young adult mystery series Pretty Little Liars comes a tense, teasing suspense thriller that will have readers up in arms … and up all night.
Glamorous, brilliant, casually mean Alison DiLaurentis collects her teenage friends’ darkest secrets, using them to keep Emily, Hanna, Aria and Spencer anxious and in line. All the girls have grown to fear texts from the vengeful, mocking A – maddeningly frequent, humiliating messages that remind them all of past embarrassments and misdeeds. Then after Alison mysteriously disappears from a group sleepover and is later found in a deep, presumably disabling coma, something strange and truly frightening happens; somehow the cruel, knowing text messages from A continue. But how is that even possible? Did their friend Alison betray them to someone else? A more troubling question: was Alison ever really their friend?
With ringleader Alison momentarily out of action, her puzzled, uncertain victims join together to compare notes and come to a chilling, inescapable conclusion: Maybe it’s best if their vindictive antagonist never wakes up. But still, even with Alison DiLaurentis gone, her troubled friends have one more agonizing question to consider: will getting rid of Alison take care of the mysterious A?
