Gossip Girl

Picture this: You live in a fabulous apartment on Manhattan's Upper East Side, complete with your own phone line, all the privacy you want (because your parents are never home), and your own bedroom and bathroom. You attend the exclusive all-girls Spenford School. Weekends are filled with parties, fundraisers, and shopping for the latest fashions. You have endless money to spend, a perfect boyfriend, and a first-class ticket to the college of your choice.

Chances are, Gossip Girl is watching you.

Gossip Girl is the anonymous webmistress of GossipGirl.net, where the world can catch up on the lives of New York's privileged teens. Hers is the place to go for the gossip on C, B, and the most beautiful and untouchable of them all: S. Watch out for S, warns Gossip Girl. "If we aren't careful, S is going to win over our teachers, wear that dress we couldn't fit into…and basically ruin our lives and piss us all off in a major way."

Follow Gossip Girl through the melodramas of a charmed life. Among others, you'll meet Jenny, the artistic wannabe popular girl that uses her talents to get her foot in the elite door; her angst-ridden brother, Daniel, with a weakness for the very thought of S; and rebel Vanessa who gets nauseous at the very thought of popularity. This is a sassy, sexy, indulgent book to be read wearing satin pajamas while sitting in bed with a box of chocolates at your side.

Audiobook available, narrated by Christina Ricci.
