I like it more than the other editions I've read, mainly because it is time to say goodbye.
In this book, the seniors in St. Barts and Constance Billard prepare for the next step of their life journey; college. Everyone has been accepted mostly to Ivy league universities, and high school graduation is coming up. However, it ain't Upper East Side brats without the drama. Sure, it is everyone's dream to be enrolled in Yale, but when you're young and rich and have the world at your feet, you can not go to college, right?
The ending is quite surprising, and it is certainly sad. There will be new young socialites replacing them in the next editions, though, so this will not be the end of the still-anonymous Gossip Girl.
Again, the book takes me back to high school years, when thinking was certainly not a requirement in everyday life....more

Before you judge me for reading the series (yes, I am addicted and I do have all the GG books), let's see what the book offers.
The series begins with this pilot edition. The main character, interestingly, remains anonymous. Going by the obvious name, Gossip Girl keeps the reader updated on what is going on in a New York clique of rich, beautiful people who think that the world is at their feet. They go to private schools, ride around in a limo, wear the latest, just-off-the-runway fashion, and their biggest worry is how to make use their parents' wealth this week.
On-and-off friendship, demanding parents, scandalous relationship, with fashion emergencies in between; those are the things readers will find in the book. There is the highly-attractive girl that stuns every person she passes; the pretty, naive-yet-bitchy best friend; a lost, rich, gorgeous boy who is clueless about life; the quiet, artsy boy who does not belong; and of course, an innocent girl who tries so hard to belong. Those are just a few of the characters.
It does not require thinking, and it is so addictive that I think you will only need a little time to finish a copy. Which is why I always cannot wait for the next edition to come. Somehow, the book keeps me feeling like I am still in adolescence years, even though please note that does not necessarily mean I was like one of them back in high school.
This book is nice for pure entertainment. xoxo....more
