It Girl (It Girl #1)
Popular Gossip Girl character Jenny Humphrey is leaving Constance Billard to attend Waverly Academy, an elite boarding school in New York horse country where glamorous rich kids don't let the rules get in the way of an excellent time.
Determined to leave her Manhattan past behind her, Jenny sets off to Waverly with big plans of reinventing herself. She'll be a goddessshe's...more
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
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!!

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
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
Getting expelled from her last school, Constance Billard, Jenny Humphrey enrolls into Waverly Academy, a boarding school, and attempts to reinvent herself as New Jenny.
I thought it was a great idea to create a spin-off series to Gossip Girl. And it was great that Jenny was the character from Gossip Girl who became the protagonist, along with new characters, such as Callie, Brett, Easy, Brandon, and Tinsley (who do ...more
I was hoping to be able to relate to it because well I like books which I can relate too.I'm hoping to be really into this book, so far I am, because it's really hard for me to be interested in books or perhaps find a book that interests me.

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
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
