Overview

Jenny Humphrey has attended some crazy parties at Waverly Academy, but none as hot as the bash at Miller farm, where the barn went up in flames. Literally. So when Dean Marymount announces that someone is going to be expelled, it's every owl for him- and herself.

Tensions are rising, rumors are flying, and pretty soon everyone is a suspect. Jenny is worried about her adorable, shaggy-haired new crush, Julian, whose lighter was found at the scene of the crime. Callie is afraid she and Easy will both get kicked out, because they were in the barn-together-when it caught fire. And Tinsley knows she'll take the heat for organizing the wild party in the first place.Luckily she's come up with a way to keep from getting in trouble: by blaming Jenny. Of course.

After all, Waverly's girls always fight fire with fire. But watch out, ladies-in a battle like this, someone's bound to get burned.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Janice DeLong
For readers who want more "New York Times Bestselling Series" fluff, here is title five of the tabloid-quality "Gossip Girls." Waverly Academy is the by-now familiar setting for recreational sex, deception, lying, vengeance, alcohol (including under-age drinking ), blackmail, gutter language (all of the four-letter words with some five-letter words added just for effect), and other adolescent mayhem. In this tale, Tinsley Carmichael is scheming to rid the campus of Jenny Humphrey and to dispose of her victim is not above reminding Dean Marymount of his own nasty little secrets. Easy and Callie are rolling in the hay and losing their virginity while Kara and Brett are looking for privacy to express their lesbian bonds to each other. Floating around the edges of all of these intriguing relationships are not-so-subtle commercials for Ralph Lauren, the Gap, L.L. Bean, Yves St. Laurent, LeTigre, Polo, Costume National, Cartier, Banana Republic, BMW, just to mention a few brands, dropped in at the oddest places. This title is part of the "Gossip Girls" series.

    FIRE!

    After the fire at the barn, the school is in an uproar trying to figure out the culprits of who started it.

    As readers of this addicting series already know, ever since Tinsley Carmichael came back to school she has had it in for Jenny. Jenny wasn't the one who started the fire, but that doesn't mean anything as far as Tinsley is concerned.

    Bret and Kara have rumors flying about them! What will they do to stop them?

    The boys are getting into the usual amount of trouble. Will they help stop the rumors of who started the fire? Or fuel them?

    This weekend the prospective students are in town, meaning those already attending the school have to be on good behavior. But do they really know what that is? And does one of the new students have a dirty little secret?

    LUCKY is the fifth book in the IT GIRL series, and should be read in order. I wouldn't want to let you ruin such an addictive series by reading them out of order!

    I Also Recommend:

    not the best but still REALLY good

    Out of all the It Girl series, I have to say this has been my least favorite. There's was too much about all the other characters and not enough about Jenny. There was a lot of intrigue, mystery, and drama though, so loved that!

    Nice Choice

    While reading this book, I have somewhat seen how the other side lives. I Love this book and all the other books in the series. In this book there is a lot of drama about the burning down of the Miller barn. Then there's the secret behind who paid off Mrs. Miller to say the fire started from one of her cows and in turn to save Jenny. I would have to say that this book is for high school students because of some of the language. Yet I would say that every girl that does read this will most likely like the book and all the books to follow!

    The best book ever!

    This is one of my favorite series. LUCKY! Full of suspense of what the next gossip is going to be. So many juicy secrets! It was perfect the whole way through! At the end, it was sad, but then it became good again. I was just reading and can't wait to get to the next page...the book ended!! I can't wait to read 'Tempted', the next book in the series. Gotta keep reading! ttfn

    Great series...

    She did a great job with this series. I understand that alot of people may think some of the material is 'innapropriate'. They just need to realize that yes reading this book does take a certain level of maturity. Its a great series, and i think everyone can realate to atleast one charecter. I love how her writing style doesnt follow 1 charecter the whole time, and instead gives everyone's points of veiw. So in case you cant tell im in love with this series and would recomend it to anyone looking for a good book, or five (soon 6 :])

    Please Don't Stop Writing

    Please don't stop writing Gossip Girl or The It Girl. They are both fantastic series that many people can understand.

    Impossible to Put Down

    One of my favorite series. As soon as I get these books, it is impossible to get the book out of my hand. I am always determined to read it in one day, even if that means staying up until 1am. Amazing characters. If you havent read this series, you missing out!
