Willa’s string of good-hearted but ill-conceived thefts at her former high school catapulted her into a life she hardly knows. She became a cult hero, but soon afterward, her mom disappeared, leaving only a cryptic message. When Willa hit the California highway to find her, she discovered a dark family secret: Joanne Fox is not who she says she is-and neither is Willa. Now, Willa and fellow trouble-maker Aidan must race to St. Louis, Missouri, Willa’s birthplace. There, they hope to find answers about Willa’s past. But uncovering the truth requires solving a decades-old murder case.
Unfortunately, the perps are still out there . . . and willing to do whatever it takes to keep the case cold. With Willa’s face on the nightly news and the police hot on her trail, it might not matter that Aidan and her friend Tre are there to help. Willa’s only hope is to find the truth before it finds her first.
Pretty Wanted is a great end to this trilogy. Unexpected things happen and things are a bit more dangerous than Willa ever thought they could be.
Willa grows so much throughout this trilogy. She needs to find out what happened to so many years ago. She’s also struggling with keeping Aidan in line. He tends to do things that will bring attention to them. He gets on my nerves a lot in this one, and we find out what he did to get kicked out of school. Tre is a character that I’ve loved from the beginning. He tries so hard to be Willa’s voice of reason.
There is definitely action in this one as Willa begins to find answers. There are certain people that are connected in crazy ways. She didn’t expect to be put in the middle of an old situation, but she was all the same.
Pretty Wanted is action packed, and will have you turning the pages to find out the truth.
