Editorial Reviews

KLIATT - Joanna Solomon
For the girls of the Gossip Girl series, summer appears to be infinite. The newest book takes place over a short period of the summer, before the characters head off to university for the first time. The warm season obviously means even more beautiful clothing and Hampton Beach outings than a normal book in this series. Serena and Blair start out as muses for a famous designer but are quickly bored by lounging by the pool, which leads them to stir up some trouble. Nate is nearby, still doing work for his lacrosse coach to earn his diploma, but the lure of Blair and Serena is irresistible. On the other side of town, Vanessa struggles as a babysitter for two spoiled children, which takes her very far out of her comfort zone (and to Hampton Beach, of course). Dan and Vanessa have broken up (for the moment) and he uses his summer to explore the underground literary world and his sexuality. All the favorite characters are back in this 10th book of the series: they're up to their usual antics and making poor decisions, which makes it a delightfully fun read. Serena, the It girl, has become less of a focus, and Nate and Blair are more central to this installment. In addition, Dan's little sister, Jenny, is in Prague for the summer, practically eliminating her from the plot. The characters are less connected than they have been in past books, but it still reads like an episode of The OC. Light, funny, and gossip-filled, this is more than enough to indulge any Sex and the City fan. Includes some sex, homosexuality, drug use.

While New York party girl, Jenny Humphrey, is off gallivanting around Prague, sketchbook in tow, Vanessa Abrams has made herself quite comfortable in little J's bedroom. But when her job as a nanny gives her the opportunity to flee the stuffy confines of the city - and Dan Humphrey's cheating heart - Vanessa is convinced that this is her chance to try something new. Too bad she's expected to spend her time chasing around two spoiled mongrels, as opposed to hanging out in the sun. But maybe she'll gain a little insight into the lifestyles of the rich and famous, and create a documentary that will make everyone's jaws drop. Maybe not. Dan, on the other hand, is finally settling into life as a worker at the Strand. But when a new co-worker steps into the picture, as well as the creation of a literary salon, Dan's sexuality is tested, and all bets are off. The same questions continue to pop up even as the Gossip Girl crew grows and tries to change. Even if WOULD I LIE TO YOU isn't as strong as others in the series, there is something irresistible about these characters and the mistakes they keep making. Readers will be waiting to see what happens when the gang goes to college.

This is one of the most exciting GG novels in a while. Its starts off with them in the Hamptons: Blair and Serena as designer Bailey Winters house guest. Nate helping out as punishment for stealing, at his coach's house. Serena & Blair tire of the imposters at Baileys home and Nate feels uncomfortable with Coach Michael's flirtatious-touchy-feely wife. They go on a road trip together around the time for Serena's birthday. This becomes nothing but jealousy and betrayal, in a true GG fashion. Vanessa goes to the Hamptons as a nanny, and that ends as quickly as it started. Also brought some comedy to the book. Then she becomes a muse for Bailey Winter which also fizzles. Dan, back in New York meets a guy at work and they end up kissing. So he questions his possible bi-sexuality. This book is really good, and will have readers dying for the eleventh book.

The second last novel of the Gossip Girl series is a definite keeper.Serena and Blair go to the Hamptons to be the muses of Bailey Winter but they discover that Bailey hires copy-cat look a likes of them and the copies are not even half as beautiful like them,maybe some resemble but S and B are definitely not happy!The shenanigans that those two get up to are so outrageous but fun to read about.I cannot wit to snatch up Don't You Forget About Me as this novel left off with B destroying S's confession of love to Nate and letting it fly away in the wind while she goes on the road trip with him,the finale's gonna be something special!

B and S become muses for a half-crazy gay clothes designer and have to keep an eye on their appointed evil twins. N finds work at the Coach's house unbearable when the Coach's wife starts hitting on him and he finds out that B and S are right next door to his Hamptons home. D finds out something new about himself and V finally figures out that being a nanny doesn't pay. S has a secret that she's been keeping in for years and she finally spills. Each gossip girl book is fantastic and has you dying to see what happens next.
