Reader reviewed by boobookitten

OK, so it is filled with the lives of teenagers who live their lives as if they were in their early to mid 20s with wild and crazy abandon.  True!  With that aside, it is juicy, well written and non-violent.  The characters, whether you like them or not have been deeply developed.  I am 40.  In my day, the juicy books that my parents may not have wanted me to read were sneakily read anyway.  Period.  As was a lot of my own underage drinking, smoking, sex and other stuff.  If you look at me now though, you'd never guess that.  I went through that stuff and turned out ok.

Parents- you might want to read them.  Not to forbid them- good luck!  But to know what your kids will read, and frankly because they were deliciously addicting!  I loved them.  And since I know what's in them, I can talk to my daughter about the stuff inside.  I found myself remembering the corresponding people at my high school and identifying me (a cross of Vanessa and Jenny) as well.  I give the entire Gossip Girl series a 5 star thumbs up!
