As far as books go, this is certainly not a bad one. It's not too far out there on the unrealistic side, and I did like the fact that I read it thanksgiving weekend-and it's about thanksgiving weekend.
I didn't like the whole switch-between-plots thing because my favorite plot was Brett and her family!
Brett goes to a posh boarding school, and her father is a plastic surgeon and her mother is the queen of tacky new jersey. Brett misses her train and has to hitch a ride with a guy she tutors for ex

I wouldn't say this series is extremely good but there is something about it that just leaves me wanting to read more. In this installment, I believe it was the first time that the majority of the novel was based somewhere outside of Waverly Academy. As well, the story was surrounding Thanksgiving. I found the read pretty decent with descriptions and some of the characters are quite humorous in the way they act.
Roberta love youuuu
This book is okay. I read ALL the books before this one and used to bet into it all the time, and it's okay, but it's kind of boring!(:

Thanksgiving day is a day where you spend time with your family and the people you are thankful for. But in Waverly Academy, most people would be spending time with their friends, and the rest would spend time with their families member. Infamous is the seventh book of the It Girl series. Cecily von Ziegesar used many great vocabularies such as, reupholstered. She described each scene very well, l

It was pretty boring up until the last 75 pages where things started to pick up with Tinsley and a secondary character. I just wished more things would happen between the two instead of having an abrupt ending. Everyone got their dream guy at some point. At this point I'm just trying to finish the series.

This was not my favorite installment in this series. Yes, it got me through a transcontinental flight, but on the whole, it was a bit dull. The whole each-book-only-gets-you-through-like-three-days thing is getting a bit ridiculous -- it's still only Thanksgiving of Jenny Humphrey's sophomore year of high school! In spite of all the drama they've had, time is moving at a crawl. In a weird way though, that almost makes the books truer to how high school is -- and particularly small, private high ...more

Infamous was part of the It Girl Series, this one including several old stories -and characters-coming back and meeting each other. Brett goes to New Jersey for Thanksgiving break, while Brandon and Heath stay at Waverly (the boarding school) to search for the "Swiss Misses", a school legend. Tinsley, Callie, and Jenny go to New York (Jenny lives there, Callie is vacationing there, and Tinsley lives there part-time) but instead of sleeping over at Jenny's Upper West Side apartment, the girls "c ...more

As the series goes on, I think that the books just keep getting better because there is so much character development. If I were to cast people to make the book a film I would cast Taylor Momsen as Jenny Humphrey. The reason being is that the Gossip Girl series is a TV series also, and the author of the Gossip Girl series pulled Jenny out and made a whole series about her life, not on TV. So Jenny Humphrey needs to stay as Jenny Humphrey you know? Then for Tinsley I would have Vanessa Hudgens, j ...more

This book is the 7th book of the It Girl series. It's Thanksgiving break at Waverly and everyone is getting ready for an interesting weekend. Callie, Tinsley, and Jenny are off to New York and they are partying! They thought they'll have a cozy dinner and family time with their families but change of plans! Callie is excited seeing Easy again, Tinsley's mission is to win Julian again, and Jenny's mission is not to fall in love again. Brett has a new mission caught up on her own in her house. Br ...more
New friends Jenny Humphrey and Tinsley Carmichael are determined get Callie Vernon out of being upset- it's been weeks since her boyfriend Easy Walsh was kicked out of school, and they're sick of her moping. They go to Yvonne Stidder's Thanksgiving party, during a snow storm in New York City.

I can connect to Jenny, Callie and Tinsley because my Thanksgiving is always crazy. It is also really fun like theirs but definitley as much.

I gave this book 3 stars because I thought that this series is ge

This book is the seventh book of the It Girl series. I quite enjoyed the book. When I first started this one, I thought it was really boring, but as I reached the middle of the book, it started getting really interesting. As a result, overall, I like the book and looking forward to reading the eighth book of this It Girl series. I think many teenagers, specifically girls can relate to this book because the main characters are girls and they deal with problems in relation to friends, significant ...more

This book was super-fun. It's just such a great read when you want to feel good about yourself and you kind of get sucked in with Callie, Tinsley, and Jenny having crazy adventures in the streets of New York. Brett's Thanksgiving in New Jersey is really entertaining, especially with the whole scheme using Sebastian to get rid of her sister's boyfriend's uptight, snobby parents. If you're looking for something light and funny, this book is definately for you!

I'll put this in the juicy bitch book category. It's when you have a bunch of power- and boy-hungry, shallow, rich girls who turn on each other and start wars constantly in the petty setting of a high school. It's pretty juicy and relatively fast-paced. Surprisingly, some of the characters can be pretty likable when they own up to things and there are definitely some sincere moments between characters.

You do not read these books because you are interested in deep thoughts. You read these books because they are fun, and not too badly written, and in this particular case, because they pass the time before you're meeting people for dinner downtown.

As far as these go, it's actually slightly better than usual, though, because there's a vaguely interesting (which is to say: not entirely love or hate) relationship between the main characters.

It was good to take a break of all that school drama, even it still had 'boys problems'. I was sad for Callie. I am not used to Jenny and Tinsley's friendship, it's weird, I'm just waiting to some misunderstanding to them get back to be rivals (but I'm not sure if I want it).

For a moment I thought that someone from Gossip Girl's series would appear.

Everything seems better when the main characters aren't going against each other. I just wish Brett was with the other three girls, too. Things were starting to get interesting when Tinsley's former nemesis Sleigh showed up. I admit I liked Julian better with Jenny. But well, Tinsley actually seemed to like him a lot. Let's see how their relationship turns out in the next book.

This wasn't a good one for me in the series, as much as it needed to happen, I can't help but want all of the books to be set in the school. I suppose that's because I want as many characters shoved together as possible creating as much havoc that they can muster.
Didn't like this as good as some of the other books, but it was a quick, mindless read and that was what I needed at just that time. Had it not been for the fact that I was seeking a quick, mindless read, I would probably give this book a 2-star rating.

I prefer this series over the Gossip Girl series. This one has just as much hooking up and drinking, but there's a sweetness to this series that I don't recall the Gossip Girl series having. The characters seem to think about their actions more. I'm glad I stuck with it.
Didn't love this one as much as the first few I read. Maybe at some point, the silly musings of high school kids get a little too much. Of course, it's a series for that age, so I shouldn't be surprised. I hope it doesn't end with this one, because it'd be a crappy place to end.

This book was pretty good. It wasn't as exciting and upbeat as the others, but definitely a nice change of setting.

By the way, ..
Whoever wrote the description of the book, has got it wrong.
The description is from "Tempted" (The book before this one).

I have given up on Gossip Girl and it looks like this will be my last It Girl. I don't know if I am outgrowing the genre or just getting tired of the vapid characters. Jenny and her rich friends are stranded in New York during the Thanksgiving holidays.

Recommends it for: Teens, Pre-teens
The girls are on holiday and some seem to be stranded. They have to find a fun place to stay that's at least warm in the middle of this blizzard. For others it the regular get together with the family that the dying to have but with an unsuspected addition that's making everyone act crazy.

Lol these books are like, barely about how they're battling out to be the It Girl of Waverly. Don't get me wrong, the series is still AWESOME. Especially if you liked the Pretty Little Liars series or the Private series.

I liked it, I just thought it was a little pointless. It was just all about Thanksgiving.. But the relationship between Brett & Sebastian was really cute! I can't wait to read what happens in the next part!

i read this book and it is really great. it tells the life of rich girls but at the same time you see that they go through the same things we deal with as regular people when it comes to boys, family, etc. this book shows that money cant buy happiness.

Infamous was pretty unexpected. But I was so hoping Sleigh would come to Waverly! It would be hilarious to see Tinsley ruin her! And Brett was actually enjoyable throughout the novel.
