Gossip Girl: Don't You Forget About Me by Cecily von Ziegesar

On the Back of the Book

Welcome to New York's Upper East Side, where my friends and I get what we want, when we want and who we want - even if they're already taken.

Enter the world of Gossip Girl - a world where throwing a going away soiree means renting out the Met for two hundred of your closest friends, and jealousy and betrayal are the guests of honour.

Forget the tearful goodbyes, people - let's get on with the fabulous farewell parties! We're almost off to college, and these last days are like a perpetual New Year's Eve ball drop - total kiss-who-you-can-now insanity. So will everyone break down and spill their secrets at the last goodbye? I'll be there to find out, and I certainly can't keep quiet...

You know you love me,
gossip girl

My Thoughts

This book doesn't have the easiness of the rest of the series, it's a massive 100 pages longer than the rest of the series and I failed to see why. There wasn't anything particularly exciting happening and so the book just dragged on.

There's not much character development as they're all just getting ready to go to college and continue on with their perfect lives. It's pretty easy to see why the characters were all altered so much for the TV show.

This is easily one of the worst books in the series if not the worst. It dragged, it took me nearly a whole week to read it and that's never happened with a Gossip Girl book before. I don't know why they brought out two more books after this but more on them when I review them.

My Rating

2.5 stars - By rights I should only give this 2 stars but I'm being generous and giving it the benefit of the doubt, although I am likely to take it down to 2.

A Final Note

This book also contains a lot of sex, swearing and drugs. Not recommended for teenagers under the age of at least 14. Even then, it's up to the parent to decide. I just share this important information.
