Blair, Serena, Nate, Dan, and Vanessa went off to live their lives.Now they're coming home for the holidays.
A lot can change in a few months . . . but some things never do.
It finally happened: we went to college. We started over. No one knows who we've coveted, what we scored on the SATs,where our parents live, or when we became debaucherous. We've learned new things, made new friends, and maybe even met the loves of our lives. We've changed.
Or at least, some of us have. But old habits are hard to break-especially when faced with your former besties and former flames. With everyone back in the city for the holidays, this break is guaranteed to be filled with makeups, breakups, and shakeups.
Lucky for you, I'm here to report all the scandal as it happens. Let the games begin!

This is the final Gossip Girl novel but with the previous three efforts not living up to expectations I wasn't expecting much from this one. I was pleasantly surprised. Gone where the endless designer references and the childish behaviour (mostly). They've all grown up and are a lot more mature. This book made me remember why I liked Gossip Girl so much in the first place.
This book has a really nice pace once you've got into it but it struggles a bit at first. The character development was a breath of fresh air. I was so sick of reading about people who didn't change. It was almost as though time stood still for them, in a bad way. So yeah they've grown up and this made me a very happy bunny.
This is definitely one of the better Gossip Girl novels and is worth a read if you've read the rest and weren't happy with the initial ending. (A bit like I wasn't.)
My Rating3 stars - Overall it's a really enjoyable, quick read. Saying that it takes a while to get into it and I don't think I'd have finished it so quickly if I wasn't feeling ill. I'd say that this was for hardcore fans that made it to the end of the series.
A Final NoteSwearing, sex, drugs, it's a Gossip Girl novel, I think you've got the message by now.
