However, when I noticed that this other series, a knockoff of Gossip Girl, sitting right next to the Gossip Gir...more
I've read but didn't enjoy Gossip Girl so I wasn't sure how I would feel about The It Girl but it was way, way better. The characters are all really fun and interesting and actually seemed to have a lot more depth to them than I expected. The narration took a little getting used to- it switches charac...more
I thought this book would be only about Jenny when I started the series, but it has different point of views on the chapters. The narrator is on third person omniscient, so we know the feelings of everybody and their secrets. For me this was a good point because it was fun to know these new people. One thing that also make me like...more
I am pretty far away from high school popularity. I attended high school in a very small town were popularity was incredibly relative. I don't recall any one particular girl whom everyone wanted to be or be with, and if that girl existed, she certainly wasn't me. My high school experience was such a unique one that I'm intrigued by girls who are willing to do and say and wear things outside their comfort zone for the sake of populari...more
The plot is full of drama, money, and deception. I love how each character is so different, but complements the characters closest to them. Brett, a fierce and modern girl seems to bring out Jenny's warm spirit, whereas Jenny seems...more
It girl follows a newbie to Waverly, her name is Jenny and she gets put in a room with two of the most popular girls in the boarding school. She hasn't had the best start though, her stuff has been dropped off in the boys dorm as the school mistakenly thought she was a Mr not a Miss, and to top it off there's already rumors going round that she was a stripper!!
It girl follows Jenny an...more
First of all, I loved Jenny Humphrey from the gossip girl series (even if most people hated her lol) and I thought that a story about her new life at Waverly Academy was beyond awesome.
I loved the drama in the book because I mean, Cecily von Ziegesar definitely writes the BEST mean-girl-drama books ever! I also f...more
I'm a huge fan of the Private series by Kate Brian. I love Reed and the normal girl goes to a rich school and gets through into a dark secretes. Love It! So when...more
I liked it, but yeah, it was shallow. But some shallow books are pretty good, like this series. No offense, Cecily von Ziegsar, but how did she write this book series, the same author of Gossip Girl, a sick, sick series?
My Review: The It-Girl is a fun, slightly trashy, guilty pleasure kind of read. The drama and scandal contained within, you just eat up like candy, while there is enough of slightly deeper stuff involving the characters' inner feelings to make it not completely trashy, and more of a worthwhile read.
When Hooked: Early-On. In the first chapter when we are introduced to Jenny, you are drawn in because of you know you either know her from The Gossip Girl series, or...more
The book was mostly about this girl, Jenny, who is brand new to Waverly Academy, a prepatory boarding school in upstate New York. There she must deal with really spoiled, out-of-control kids who have been alone and practically adults their entire lives'. Jenny is from the city (New York City) and Waverly is an expensive private school the really wealthy go to....more

Well, I finally completed this book today and must say that I'm very dissapointed. I found this book very confusing. I could never tell who was suppose to be telling the story. There really was no plot behind the book other than it being some fancy...more
