GOSSIP GIRL took off like a rocket with teen girls, full of high school cliques, backstabbing, dating, lying, partying and more. Its followup, YOU KNOW YOU LOVE ME, continues the trend, with the trendy New York high school characters making things more complicated and more sordid every step of the way.

At the core of the story is Blair, whose mother is getting married to man Blair cannot stand. Not only that, but he's bringing along his reggae-wannabe son, who is nearly Blair's age but not exactly in her social class. Blair's former best friend, Serena, is every photographer's dream - and every boy's dream as well. Blair's boyfriend is cheating on her with a freshman girl. Throughout it all, Blair wishes she was Audrey Hepburn and tries to get into college.

The buzz for this book series continues to grow, and so do the secondary characters. Thankfully, they get a little more fleshed out in this story. The mystery surrounding the identity of Gossip Girl, the chic chick online who always has inside information on the group, continues. She knows who's hot and who's not - and this book is certainly hot among teen readers.
