it was ok

It took me about 6 months to read this book. I'm not sure if that's because I'm having a tough schoolyear or because I'm bored of the series.

I think what Ziegesar has done with Gossip Girl is admirable. In my experience, kids that hate to read are reading and that's not an easy feat. I think it would be more helpful if she took something like the ability to capture a teenager's attention and made it teachable like throw a bunch of figurative language in there along with the cursing, sex, and marijuana. Otherwise, isn't it just gossip? I dunno...maybe I'm being too conservative and "teacher-like." I just can't help but roll my eyes as I get through one of these anymore.

Be careful though...so trashy that they're addicting. I'm not even into the series anymore and I'll have to read the other 7 or however many more are in the series.
