Hey all you wonderful Gossip Girl fans, it's Alfreda again, and I am just here to give you the scoop on the latest Gossip Girl book that I have read....more Hey all you wonderful Gossip Girl fans, it's Alfreda again, and I am just here to give you the scoop on the latest Gossip Girl book that I have read. Ok well the last book was amazing as many of you know, it had lots of drama and more drama, and did I mention drama? Anyway this book is even more intense then other one I told you about. In this book they had drama with more couples of course, they had drama with themselves too. So if you enjoyed the first essay, I just know that you'll love this one right here.
So let me just start off with a little saying "whatever happens in Vegas stays in Vegas." Well we all know that that's not true, especially when you're a celebrity, and let's face it, the people in the Gossip Girl book are total celebrities in their own little communities. I mean they have a blog dedicated to them, in case you're lost Gossip Girl is this little website that gives you all of the latest scoops on the most popular Upper East Siders that live in New York City. Anyway in this book they all went on vaca for the spring, and let me tell you, it was some drama with a capitol RAMA. People were getting naked and hooking up from the get go. In this book the main characters went to Sun Valley for their vacations, where they partied like rockstars, got drunk, naked, arrested and more. I know you're probably wondering how can people so young be so stupid, or maybe you're not. The point is they got wild and crazy and in the end had to pay for their behavior, well at least some of them did.
Shall we start off with Serena van der Woodsen, I think we shall. Well in this book Serena is like the goddess of all goddesses, everyone falls in love with her wherever she goes. Now she went up to Sun Valley with her bff Blair who was going through her little problems yet again, but we’ll get to that a little later. Anyway Serena, went up to Sun Valley to spend sometime with her big brother Erik for their spring break. What she got was something she definitely was not expecting, her bff Blair started hooking up with her big brother Erik, I mean she didn’t want to say anything about but she definitely was not happy about it. Then this Olympic skier tried to hit on her and was not even into him, and to top it all off she got stuck in a ditch on a sleigh butt naked! I know crazy, and if you want to find out how that happened well then you have to read the book, but enough about Serena let’s move on to the next one.
Well if you’re a Gossip Girl lover like I am, then the next name is definitely one of the first names that pops in you’re head when you think of sexy, It’s none other than Nathaniel “Nate” Archibald. Well he has a little drama of his own, his girlfriend is a drug addict, she gets naked in front of anyone, she’s obnoxious and so much more. His ex-girlfriend is hooking up with someone else right in front of his very eyes, and to top it all off, he has homosexuals hitting on him, that’s how hot he is. Everyone around him including his worse enemy Chuck Bass, they used to be friends as most of us all know but then they stopped. Anyway, everyone around him has seen more of his naked girlfriends body except him, even the police among other random strangers, and just wait until you find out who that hot peace of a mess is. Here’s a hint: it’s the person that you least expect, and if you want to find out you’re going to just have to read the book.
I mean there’s just so much drama going in this book, it’s hard to keep up with it. Blair wants Nate and he wants her, but he has a new girlfriend and her pride is in the way. Serena wanted to spend time with her big bro and her best friend, but she didn’t want them to spend time together the way that they were. Chuck was experimenting and being his oh so charming self. I’m totally being sarcastic. Anyway there’s just so much drama and so little time to cover it, but I think I covered a lot, enough to make you want to read it, right? Anyway I am on the next book “You Know You Love Me” and let me tell you, it is awesome. So until the next time, I’m Alfreda and well you know you love me.

And let me tell the book is jus...more**spoiler alert** Ok, so I'm already like obsessed with the television show, so I decided, hey why not read the books? And let me tell the book is just as amazingly crazy as the show. The drama is just as intense as ever, and if you like drama, especially drama that doesn't involve you this is definitely the book for you. This book has drama, school issues, and of course the boyfriend girlfriend drama. I mean what would be a teen book without it? In this essay I will tell you exactly why you should read this book, if I already haven't convinced you yet.
First of all, all of the school issues. Now I know that when you hear about school you think, please not that place again, but I promise nothing is boring about this school. For all of you non Gossip Girl fans out there, Gossip Girl is this website where you find out all of the dirty little secrets about the rich little Upper East Side kids that you either love or hate. I personally love them and all of their drama that follows. So in this book the seniors are getting their college acceptance letters back. Now you would think that getting an acceptance letter back would be a simple yea or nay, but not with the people in Gossip Girl. If one didn't get accepted to a school but their friend and boyfriend, you better believe that there will be blood. Not literally, but you know what I mean. For example Blair who's like the queen of all queens at Constance B. high school applied to Yale, now Yale is her dream school, and she feels as though if she doesn't get into Yale there's no point in even going to college. Now her hot, hot boyfriend Nate applied to the same school as well as her bff Serena, now while both of them got accepted she got wait listed. Let me tell you she was not a happy little rich shopper in mall land. She basically broke up with her boyfriend, and treated her best friend like she was her worse enemy. Gossip Girl had a field day with this one. Well to some it up a little, the teens had to go up to the schools that they got accepted to, to find out a little more about those schools. Now some how Gossip Girl found out about their sitings. She knew that Serena kissed a guy at Yale, Harvard and the other colleges she visited, Blair got her hair dyed and her legs shaved, by a bunch of drunken virgins, but some how people said that they were having sex for money and they all got rug burns. Nate was said to have had sex with one of the female scouts from Yale. Now how they find out all this information is beside me. Are you convinced yet?
Well if not, here's a little more, now not only do they have school issues like me and you and the next teen in high school, but they also have the typical boyfriend and girlfriend relationship problems. Now as I mentioned earlier Blair and Nate weren't on speaking terms, but that's another story. Anyway, Blair and Nate have been dating for a while and they've been on or off so many times, it's hard to keep up with. Now Nate wants to have sex where as though Blair's not ready yet, just like any relationship that causes problems. Serena on the other hand, doesn't have a boyfriend, but she is definitely looking for love. So as you can see even though they are rich they have problems in their relationships just like us regular people, they might even have more because of all the money. After all you heard the saying, "More money, more problems." Still not convinced?
After all of that, if you're still not convinced then here it is lat on the table. You wanted drama well here you go. Let's start with Ms. Queen B Blair, now Blair is on her way off to college next fall, her mom just got remarried and now she's like eight months pregnant. Now because of the new baby, Blair got kicked out of her bedroom so that they could make room for the new baby. She just got accused of being a prostitute, she almost got kicked out of school because of these rumors, and now when her mom has to come up to the school to talk to the principal, she's go into labor. Of all places to go into labor, you go into labor in your daughters principal office, how embarrassing? Now moving on to Serena, she basically just has been called a slut for kissing one guy form each college that she visited, her best friend won't acknowledge her existence because of the whole Yale situation that I mentioned earlier, she has no boyfriend and she just basically feels all alone. Nate's girlfriend broke up with him, he's always high off of smoking pot, he probably just ruined any chances he had of getting into the colleges after sleeping with the scouts and then treating them like dirt, all because his girlfriend broke up with him. Now that's just minor drama, if you want more you gonna have to read it.
Now if you're still not convinced you must have been under a rock while this was all going on, or you're just flat out nuts! Now I told you about the school issues, and the boyfriend girlfriend problems, not to mention the drama. Now I know you had to love it, and as Gossip Girl would always say at this point "You know you love me, xoxo, Gossip Girl."

When I first started to read this book I thought here we go again another boring book, why are doing this to me? I got more into the book as time went by, and wound up actually liking it. This book had become interesting and it was like no other book that I had read before, which was a good thing. In the next few paragraphs, I will tell you why I liked this book.
My first reason for why I like this book is because, it takes you to a certain time in history when things weren't so great for our society. When you read this book it does at first seem like this another old boring school book, but then you get more into it and realize that it is actually interesting. In the book the author tells you about how malaria took over everyones life. No one was safe from it whether you were rich or the poorest of the poor, you had a chance of getting infected. At the same time this movie wasn't just about a diseases that was spreading it was also about family. This girl and her grandfather had to leave her mother behind because she was infected with malaria. On their way to their destination, they became closer because they had no choice but to survive on their own. So not only is this book about a disease that took over at one point in time, but it's also about how this disease brought families closer together.
My next reason for liking this book is for the simple fact that out of every book that I had ever read before having to do with any African Americans during that time, this book did not give them this title as being worth nothing at all. I wouldn't go as far as saying that they were treated as equals, but they did have jobs that they got payed for and they had homes and friends who were whites. I had gotten to a point where I got tired of reading about how useless African Americans were, when in fact in the book they portrayed one black woman as a hero in my eyes. She was there for this family when they needed her and she made sure everything was ok until the threat was over.
This book was just different and it opened my eyes up to books like this that I have never thought that I would ever want to read in my life. If you ever read this book maybe you will feel the same as me or either you will feel completely different. Either way Fever of 1793 is a book that I would recommend to anyone.(less)
