I chose the book Gossip Girl because I have watched the show many times and it is one of my favorites. Also, Ellen and I were in the library looking for a book and we picked something we could read together so we both got a Gossip Girl book. This book is about the rich kids of the upper east side in New York City, and all their drama during high school and their crazy famous lives. I’m reading the third book in the series, and it’s focused on the main characters going on college visits to choose what college they want to go too. There are many main characters, but the two biggest ones are Serena Van Der Woodsen and Blaire Waldorf. The girls are best friends and do everything together, but they also despise each other at times and fight all the time. The book starts off with Serena and Blaire walking to their school, Constance Billard School for Girls. They talk about where they are going for a summer vacation. The girls are very spoiled and only want to go where they want to go and nobody else. Blaire complains to Serena that her mother wants to go to Oahu, Hawaii but Blaire doesn’t want to because she has already been their before. The girls and all their friends are all worried about what college they want to go to and if they will be accepted and waiting for their letters of acceptance. The reason for the name of the novels and the show “Gossip Girl” is because an unidentified member of the circle of wealthy kids has a blog on the internet where ‘she’ posts about all the gossip going on in ther lives, all their secrets, and their personal info. All of the Upper East Side is obsessed with reading her posts and sending her tips.
