This book is the kind of book you either love or hate there is no in between. Its set in Upper East side of manhattan and the main characters are the Creme de la Creme the snottiest richest and prettist of them all. Even thought all of them are in high school their problems aren't about school or college its whose best friend is sleeping with whose current boyfriend. It gets boring after a couple of books in the series and the t.v. series is waayy better than the books.
