Emily is pregnant with the baby. And so to the present. The sulk is broken temporarily when her sister Beth turns up, but since she is completely indistinguishable from her sister Carolyn I doubt it will make too much difference. Spencer is now living with her violent patriarchal stepfather-to-be and his daughter Amelia, who quite reasonably hates Spencer for getting her brother sent to military school and bullying her mercilessly.
Spencer in turn cannot get on with Amelia because she is a girl, and worse yet not even stylish. Other events include Aria being dumped by her awful for boyfriend for being pathetic and unpleasant, which is hard to care greatly about, and Hanna confessing to her father all the terrible secrets she was keeping from him, which formed a major part of the previous book.
She and Emily attend a monster-themed fancy-dress party as the Statue of Liberty and a flapper, for some reason, and Emily immediately meets a new love-interest called Kay, who is dressed as a mermaid.
Spencer meanwhile is busy with the school play we have been hearing about for some time, in which she is risibly cast as Lady Macbeth alongside new student and motorcycle bad-boy Beau. Also they only have roughly 8 students in the entire year-group 10 if you count Alison incarnations , so the choice is limited. He also excuses his total disappearance from the narrative since Book 4 by explaining that his e-mails were hacked a year ago, and thus he has been unable to contact anyone.
Nobody does much about this though. And Emily continues chastely dating Kelsey, because she never takes any action or does anything. It sounds truly awful. Rather than finding it intensely creepy or demanding some of the potential royalties since a massive amount of the text is simply culled from her conversation, Aria is delighted — attention from others can only be positive, especially if it includes prurient physical flattery.
Shepard continues to misunderstand the concept of irony. The media reports the Tabitha case incessantly, as presumably there is no other news in America. Hanna shifts focus from fake suspect one Kelsey to fake suspect 2 Kate for no particular reason. Spencer reminds us that Kelsey is her preferred bet. Emily does absolutely nothing. The girls get together and decide once again that actually they prefer Kelsey as a suspect, with Emily as the inevitable lone voice of dissent.
Eventually The Scottish Play is ready for its single performance. Spencer totally loses her inability to act due to stress, leading the director to actually threaten to change her for another actress between mid-play, despite that being shockingly stupid.
Then she suddenly remembers how to act again, is amazing, and is rewarded with yet another kiss from Beau. At the do Emily tells Kelsey about Spencer framing her. Aria is uncomfortable being stalked by an ex-teacher at a school event, so Ezra descends into yet another sulk and gets off with evil pneumatic sex-puppet Klaudia behind some bins in an alleyway.
Spencer mistakenly thinks Kelsey is trying to kill her and reasonably tries to strangle her to death with her bare hands. We then return to the victim-trapped-in-car-with-potential-killer storyline again, but this time with Emily and Kelsey in the respective roles.
The other girls race after them with their usual disregard for road-safety and innocent bystanders, and everyone ends up once again at Floating Man Quarry, death-site of A 1 all the way back in Book 4. Kelsey drones on-and-on about secrets and bad deeds without naming any specifics before deciding to jump from the quarry and kill herself.
She is then saved by Spencer, but commences to OD on her stupid fictional speed pills in a manner both oddly-timed and untenable. The usual convenient ambulance arrives and she is borne away, leaving the four girls behind to discuss with relief how no-one will ever believe her supposed murder-accusations, since she is now a known drug user and everything she says will be written off as substance-induced -hallucinations.
This has no place this near to the end of the book and serves only to reduce what little tension or narrative thrust there was. Another plot lurch leads to a passing mention to a new forensic procedure which will prove that the body on the beach was in fact Tabitha, even though that has never previously been in doubt.
The II is also brought up again, in readiness for the next book. Kelsey is now a classic TV-movie lunatic, all matted hair and circles under the eyes.
She now admits that she had drugs in her room anyway the night when Spencer planted some there, and so apparently totally deserved to go to jail and have her life ruined. Although Spencer seems to have escaped that judgement. It then turns out that Tabitha was also at the Preserve, which is pretty crowded with identikit teenage girls, and was exactly the same age as Alison. This is significant for some reason. The end.
