Overview

After a whirlwind first week on the Upper East Side, the Carlyles have made their mark on Manhattan's Golden Mile. Owen is new BFFs with Rhys Sterling, but what will happen when they both fall for the same girl? Baby stole resident it girl Jack Laurent's boyfriend...and then Avery stole Jack's popularity. Now Jack is on the warpath, and she wants nothing more than to send the Carlyle girls packing their Louis Vuitton trunks. Is the UES big enough for all their drama?

Editorial Reviews

Cecily von Ziegesar's Gossip Girls have bantered and battled through multiple volumes, but fans still wonder how the Blair/Serena/Nate love triangle really began. It Had to Be You: The Gossip Girl Prequel unlocks that mystery and several others. Suffice it to say that this backstory will reconfigure your sense of the Gossip Girl galaxy.
Children's Literature - Kathleen Foucart
The second book in the "Gossip Girl: The Carlyles" series picks up with Baby being allowed to stay at Constance Billard, and a lot of drama. Baby's "punishment" is to work on the school's literary magazine, where she meets kindred soul Sydney and the two become fast friends. The only problem—Baby's boyfriend JP does not exactly fit in with her new bohemian friends, and when Avery loses her hold over popular Jack, her social circle falls apart… except for the old ladies on Constance's board! While Owen continues to pine silently for Rhys's ex-girlfriend, Rhys plans to get her back, but one little date auction will change all of the Carlyle's relationships for better or for worse. Like many of the "Gossip Girl" and "It Girl" novels, there is too much under-age drinking without consequences, so readers who are uncomfortable with those situations should be aware before picking up this series. "Gossip Girl" fans will nonetheless eat up this newest addition to the collection, and new fans might find their way into the series along with the newcomers, the Carlyle triplets.

This book was good and all, but I don't think I'll be reading any more from this spin-off series. The plot isn't interesting enough to keep my attention like the original Gossip Girl series did. It's becoming a bit too predictable.

hey everyone! This is not a review but a question (sorry about this but I don't know anyone who has read these books yet and was hoping someone who has already read this book could help). I was wondering does this book have anything to do with the 1st book's characters? For example: Jenny,Blair,Dan,Serena,etc. If you answer my question thank you.Have a great day.

P.S who are Baby, Owen, and Avery?

The Carlyle triplets are back in the spotlight and shaking up Manhattan.

Baby's decided that Manhattan looks good right now, and that includes J.P. With that decision made, she has to worm her way back into the heart of Constance Billard. All she has to do is revive the school's art magazine. Will her bohemian ways match the artsy direction of the magazine and push her further away from the elite crowd?

Avery's busy with board meetings with ladies at least fifty years older than she is. The almost daily meetings consists of gossip and very little else. It's hard to imagine that Avery's almost friendless, but will the last remains for her reputation be shot now that the word is out that she's never had a boyfriend?

Owen's having his own love troubles. He's still hung up on Kelsey, but since Rhys adores her, he's trying to stay away from her. But sooner or later, they're going to have to confront their emotions.

The scandalous secrets flow from the new socialites and they'll do almost anything to stay on top. How far is too far?

This is one series that will grab your attention and not let go.

i agree with the white roses person, i think rhys should be with avery.. cause she does need a guy in her life. but i think the gossip girl books are really good and they keep me wanting to read more. i hate how it takes a long time for the books to come out, but its not that big of a deal

This book was really good and I always think everyone in the book is 21 because they act like the girls from the mtv show the hills. If you like the show the Hills and gossip girl and the new 90210 then you will LOVE this book!
Avery is a girl who acts like she was born in 1932! She is smart and classy and she wants to be just like her famous grandmother. She is described as so beautiful that she is one of those super pretty girls who never have a boyfriend and you would think because she is so pretty she would have one. I think she might go well with Rhys Sterling or J.P.? Or a new guy should be added to the story.Avery wants a boyfriend but I think she will learn that she can be happy without a boyfriend and she will learn to be happy without a guy.
Baby is Avery's younger sister by 7 minutes. Baby is bohemian like her mom Edie. She is also very pretty and she seems like one of those girls who just goes through boyfriends and she is learning about herself and what kind of guy is best for her.
Owen is Avery and Baby's brother and he and Kelsey seem like a good pair but Jack has a major crush and I wonder if the series will have Owen be in love with both girls? And the girls will be friends and find out? he might be the guy the girls fight over.
Kelsey seems like she would be a good friend to baby but Kelsey likes Owen and Rhys? So she will start drama for a little.
Jack reminds me of blair from gossip girl.
I can't wait to find out what happens next! This series is really good!
I love reading about the city ,fashion, and, drama!

Dear Anonymous of 11/2/08:

How can you possibly judge a book--so brutally, no less--when you cannot even write a complete, gramatically correct sentence? If you are a teen (please say yes), you better start paying attention in school, because that sort of writing will never make it in the real world. Get your act together before you spout off about someone else's work.
