The NYC upper-crust kids have returned -- and are acting brassier than ever -- in Cecily von Ziegesar's third installment of her blockbuster Gossip Girl series.
Now that Blair and Serena are best buds again, they've returned as the most envied girlfriends in New York. Aside from looking brand-name fabulous, the two are hosting the annual December Black-and-White Ball, where Serena gets chummy with pop star Flow and Blair sidesteps Chuck Bass. Soon the two are heading down to St. Bart's for some Christmas fun in the sun, but the trouble is, Blair's got her Yale essay and ex-boyfriend, Nate, on the brain, Serena's growing bored with Flow's come-ons and develops a fond affection for Aaron, and Aaron's got a hopeless crush on his stepsister. Add all this to Dan and Vanessa's sex-starved relationship (she wants it, he doesn't) and Nate getting wigged out by Jenny's love professions, and this holiday turns out more delicious than spiked eggnog!
With enough racy details to curl your eyelashes, this Gossip Girl installment will keep the series' fans salivating for more. Shocking developments happen on practically every page, and it doesn't look like the hijinks are stopping anytime soon. Thank your lucky Jimmy Choos for that. Shana Taylor
