My Review:

Weird, Cryptic, Annoying, yet....Surprising.

I don't know how will I review this book.
The first half of it was really boring that I almost gave this up.  However, I was so eager to discover the Truth, unlocking the mystery of what happened with The Liars. I made some guesses of how will this end. Towards the end of the book...


I saw it coming with the help of some clues. Somehow, I was to decipher its mystery. I just couldn't believe the ending. (I removed the spoiler here but you can check my review on goodreads) , at some point, I am annoyed with the Grandfather, he was like one of the characters of a Sidney Sheldon book. He's so manipulative and I hate it. While the rest of the characters are whiny and act like spoiled brats. (except Gat. I love Gat.)

I like the last part of this book, some parts doesn't need to be elaborated and let's just say leave it for good. It's still a thumbs up for me but not my favorite.
