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 goddess--she's a sophisticated city girl, after all!--and will find a boy who can properly worship her. But that's going to be a little tricky since her self-absorbed new roommates, Callie Vernon and Brett Messerschmidt, aren't exactly there to help--unless there's something in it for them.
Hot guys, new intrigue, and more delicious gossip all add up to more trouble than ever for Jenny. But if getting caught with boys and going up against the Disciplinary Committee is what it takes, Jenny's ready. She'll do all that and more to be The It Girl.
In this launch of a new series, a character from von Ziegesar's Gossip Girl series transfers from her New York City girls' school to Waverly, a co-ed boarding school upstate, where more scandals await. Jenny Humphrey gets to room with "supercool" Brett and Callie, whose former roommate was expelled last year. But rumors about Jenny quickly spread through campus, including one that she was a stripper (not entirely unfounded at one of the schools she considered, for instance, Jenny was "offered Ecstacy and had taken her top off"). When Callie's cute boyfriend is caught nearly naked in their room, Callie pressures Jenny to take the blame, even though Jenny faces expulsion. As with the Gossip Girl books, the perspective rotates through several Waverly characters, and readers glimpse not only what they are thinking on the inside, but what labels they are wearing on the outside (readers even learn where to buy the outfit featured on the cover). Unfortunately, the zinger-filled Gossip Girl commentary that separated the chapters in the original series is here replaced by rather dull emails sent from students and staff. Still, the author serves up plenty of juicy plotting, and Gossip Girl fans will likely go for this, too. Ages 15-up.
Great book !!! I got really into it was like I was watching the show
