Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Spring break has come to Gossip Girl world, so the season is naturally ripe for a ski vacation in Cecily von Ziegesar's fifth fabulous episode of her bestselling series. Loaded with more eye-popping scandal than Page Six, I Like It Like That follows several of the brat-packsters as they make way to Sun Valley to hit the slopes and hot tubs in their skimpiest best (and for whacked-out Georgie, in nothing at all). As Blair and Nate wonder if true love can ever bloom between them again, Serena is busy dodging the cops when Chuck and Georgie do some naked tobogganing. And of course, everyone is cozying up to the blond, blue-eyed Dutch Olympic snowboarding team. Meanwhile, back in New York, Jenny and Vanessa are wrapped up in their own dating issues, while Dan has a new internship at the hottest literary mag in town. Phew! This installment has more juicy drama than ever before, and fans will be lapping it up. If you think this one reveals Gossip Girl's true identity, however, think again, but between your guesses, you'll thank your lucky stars to be snickering over fiascos at the Frick and mastiffs in pink leather booties. Shana Taylor
VOYA
This fifth series installment features a relatively large continuing cast of high school friends, monitored by the anonymous gossip girl who posts tidbits about their activities on her Web site. The book is set in a contemporary Manhattan fantasyland, where parents are absent, wealth is enormous, and high school poets get published in the New Yorker. Part of the action takes place during spring break at a posh vacation home in Sun Valley. Blended families, internships, and anxiety about college acceptance letters-all aspects of modern teenage life, regardless of economic status-appear in the story, but relationships and sex are the main issues occupying the characters. Slice-of-life episodes take the place of a plot, but there are some surprising elements, such as the revelation that one character has elderly parents and lives a middle-class life and the appearance of a hippie found-art family that refuses to compromise their ideals. The book is not entirely self-contained, and it is hard to keep the characters straight without knowing the entire series. The gossip girl Web postings that appear at intervals act as a narrator, summarizing the plot thus far and sorting out the people. This book belongs to the literary tradition of escapist literature. VOYA CODES: 2Q 4P J S (Better editing or work by the author might have warranted a 3Q; Broad general YA appeal; Junior High, defined as grades 7 to 9; Senior High, defined as grades 10 to 12). 2004, Little Brown, 208p., Trade pb. Ages 12 to 18.
—Jenny Ingram
KLIATT
Follow the continuing exploits of Gossip Girl (who is she, really?) and her friends as they drink, get stoned, and spend their parents' money on lavish spring break activities. Blair temporarily moves in with Serena to escape her pregnant mother and the loss of her bedroom in preparation for the baby's arrival. Nate struggles to stay off drugs while he watches Georgie destroy herself with any substance she can get her hands on. Looking for success as a poet, Dan suffers through a disastrous internship at the offices of the prestigious literary journal Red Letter. Best friends Jenny and Elise spy on Leo to discover his secret—is he as rich as they think he is? As each subplot unfolds, the lives of these jet-setting teens are revealed to be full of angst and alcohol. This book reads like an adolescent soap opera, with each chapter serving to introduce a new, equally one-dimensional scenario. Physical description of the world each person inhabits serves as a substitute for any character depth. The author wastes much of each page on discussion of shoes and clothing. Recommended for series fans only. (A Gossip Girl novel). KLIATT Codes: S—Recommended for senior high school students. 2004, Little, Brown, 17th Street Productions, 201p., Ages 15 to 18.

    #5 I Like It Like That

    The fifth book in this series is just as fun as the others. We learn even more about the characters and their crazy lives. <BR/> This book focuses on spring break. Everyone has got somewhere amazing to go and they can¿t wait to get out of town. Well almost everyone¿ Jenny, Dan, and Vanessa all are staying home during break. They are still keeping busy though. Jenny has a new boyfriend, Leo. Leo is very mysterious and strange. We don¿t really know much about him but I don¿t think anyone really does to tell the truth. She finally finds someone she thinks is amazing and she is really happy, but then she gets very confused and doesn¿t know who the real Leo is. Will he be the man of her dreams or just a mysteriously strange boy? Dan is busy working, or acting like he is working, as an intern for a writer¿s office. He seems very unhappy and just can¿t get the hang of working. Vanessa has moved on from Dan and is now hanging out with a boy that is totally not her type. Does she really like him or does she just want some company?<BR/> The ones that went out of town seem to be having a ball. Blair, Serena, Nate, Nate¿s crazy girlfriend, Georgie, and some others have all headed out to Sun Valley for some skiing. Blair is really excited because Serena¿s brother, Erik, is going, who she all of a sudden developed a huge crush on. This trip turns out to be very action-packed and dramatic but, what would expect with that group though?

    GOTTA READ! :

    This was the first Gossip Girl book I have EVER read and I look forward to reading more. In this novel it covers Spring Break for the schoolgirls and boys. Blair is supposed to be going to Hawaii with her pregnant mother and step dad and family. Serena 'her best friend' invites Blair to come to Sun Valley with her and her hot brother 'according to Blair' Erik. Nate and his girl friend Georgie who is in rehab are also going to Sun Valley for Spring Break. The Danish Olympic snowboarding team just happens to be in Sun Valley too. Vanessa tries to keep her films hidden from her parents and the fact that she got accepted early to NYU. Jenny tries to figure out why her boyfriend Leo is so mysterious. Blair still doesn¿t know what college she is going to go to. Serena is almost arrested while in Sun Valley with Georgie and Chuck, who actually got arrested. While all of this is going on Blair still obtains her website and is able to write a new page almost everyday. ¿Gossip Girl You Know You Love Me All I Want Is Everything Because I¿m Worth It I Like It Like That You¿re the One That I Want Nobody Does It Better Nothing Can Keep Us Together¿ 'In the cover of the book' ¿No gossip ever dies away entirely, if many people voice it: It too is a kind of divinity.¿ -Hesiod, ca. 800 B.C. 'In the cover of the book'

    Love Love Love It!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Gotta Read!

    This was a great book! The Sixth one was even better. If you like romantic books and love stories and stuff like that you should definitely ready the whole series! This book is a must read! But I would advise mature 11 year olds and up to read this book. Maybe mature 12 year olds.

    Gossip Girl series is not for younger teens or preteens at all.

    I started reading the Gossip Girls series way too young and I stopped reading them for awhile. I was older when I read this particular book and it was good but Gossip Girl books just aren't for the younger girls. The books have way too much R and PG-13 stuff in them. This book was good though because it had a lot of crazy stuff happen.

    Okay Book

    This book was okay.. it was very confusing because of all the characters. Every chapter were different people doing totally different things. Also, they used initials instead of names and that bothered me quite a but. I recommend this book to older teenage girls who can really focus and be able to pay attention to what is going on.

    INTENSITY

    i think this book was intense out of the first five of the gossip girl series. the author is great though, no doubt. she makes you feel all the emotions the characters are in the book. this book makes is easy to get too excited and want to skip some parts, but it's worth reading the whole thing.

    WOW

    Wow! I loved this book. It was very intriguing and kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. I read it in one day! Everyone, this is a must read book. It tell about the lifes that most of us live far away from, however, as you read, you realize that they have the same issues as us. My advice, jump in to the lives of Blair, Serena, Nate and the rest of the gang.
