Gossip Girl

Ziegesar, Cecily. Gossip girl : a novel. New York: Little, Brown, 2007.

Annotation:  Upon being expelled from boarding school, Serena van der Woodsen plans to reunite with her old friends and share in having fun as they use to have.  She soon discovers that life has moved on, especially for her closest friend Blair who is determined to do everything in her power to keep Serena away from herself and her boyfriend.  Even if it means she has to believe in some very vicious gossip.

Book Talk:  Gossip is a very vicious thing especially when it’s written by an anonymous person with a lot of followers.  For Serena van der Woodsen, gossip found her among the people she most loved and trusted.  Although all the girls want to be her and all the guys want to be with her, she soon finds out that your friends can become your enemies when you are just trying to be yourself.  As the gossip keeps flowing, Serena must find a way to restore her friendships that have been ruined by rumors of a life she never lived.  Will she be able to rise above the rumors or will she fall victim to the Gossip Girl?

Kerry - Age 17: "My favorite genre would be fictional drama or romance. I like these books because I believe that you can really get into them, and put yourself in the shoes of the characters and feel what they feel and even learn from them."
