Gossip Girl character Jenny Humphrey is ready to start boarding school after being asked to leave Constance Billard in New York City. Waverly Academy is out in the country and the perfect place for Jenny to start her new persona --- someone who doesn't make embarrassing mistakes or get into trouble. Right.

To start off, she mistakenly has been assigned to the boys' dorm. Then her two new roommates, Callie Vernon and Brett Messerschmidt, are not talking to each other due to some big scandal that went down at the end of the last school year. Both are dealing with some pretty serious issues of their own as well, and Jenny observes it all happening.

Rumors are flying about her past life in New York, and Jenny tries to quash that nonsense while fighting the crush she's developing for Easy, the boyfriend of one of her roommates. He ends up getting caught in her room on her bed --- instead of with his girlfriend, who he had been coming to visit. Now Jenny has to decide if she wants to tell on her roommate and Easy, or go through the Disciplinary Committee hearing, which may get her kicked out of Waverly.

But she likes Waverly. Boy trouble and rumors aside, Jenny has found a talent for field hockey and even makes the varsity team. She is invited to some hot parties and likes the art classes. In order to stay at the academy and remain popular, the New Jenny must deal with a handful --- New York City was never this complicated.

THE IT GIRL is an interesting start to a series that is sure to attract the many fans of Gossip Girl.

This new series is a spin off from the Gossip Girl series (which I recommend if you haven't read any yet).

Jenny Humphrey went to Constance Billard in NYC with the others from the Gossip Girl series and 'kind of' got kicked out. She wanted to start over in a fresh place with people who don't know anything about her.

Well, the popular crowd at her new boarding school Waverly Academy are gossips too. There are already many rumors going around about Jenny and who she really is. She learns that she can just ignore the rumors and have fun flirting and partying like the rest of the popular crowd.

I hope this series stays as good as the first book and doesn't go downhill like the Gossip Girl series did.

This was an amazing book. I could still see some of the Gossip Girl characters repersented in some new people, but it was suddel enough that it wasn't compleaty like a clone. Jenny goes off to a bording school in upstate New York where she thinks her past problems can be fixed. But instead of fixing thme, she gets more. I would have to say i liked Jenny a lot more now. My favorite part was the unexpected twist on the very last page that will defentlity lead to a sequel. I can't wait for the next one to come out!

In Cecily von Ziegesar's new series, Gossip Girl character Jenny Humphrey leaves Manhattan to attend boarding school at the elite Waverly Academy in upstate New York. Jenny is determined to start completely over from who she was at Constance Billard, and create a new, cool, chic persona. Jenny knows she's up for a challenge when her new roomates are the best friends of the former Waverly Academy It Girl, but she's up for it. Nothing can deter her from her path to being elevated to It Girl status. Not her roomates, not the Disciplinary Committe, nothing. This book gives insight into a new side of Jenny Gossip Girl readers had not been previously privy to, and serves up a whole new set of scandals, intrigue, and gossip. Fans of Gossip Girl will love this new read, but it is not neccessary to have read it to enjoy The It Girl.

The It Girl is about a girl named Jenny Humphrey. Jenny is the new girl and will be attending Waverly Academy and is set on climbing to the top of the social ladder, whatever it takes. Jenny's roomates, Callie Vernon and Brett Messerschmidt are the most popular girls in the school. But will Jenny risk getting in trouble to make friends with them?

The It Girl was a book that contained all the essentials in the girl world. Gossip, guys, and intrigue. It also had many innuendos, so I recommend this book for ages 15+.

Jenny who many knwo as dan's younger sister overshadowed by her rocker brother in the gossip girl series has finally shone readers her true colors in the it girl. tHe it girl is the sotry of Jenny goign to a boarding school called Waverly academy where she hopes to start over ad become the "it" girl like sorry a gossip girl reference "serena" or "Blair" i the upper east side. Her first day is a sign she's in for... interesting surprises when se discovere sthat she's been accidentally placed in the boy's dorm not that she'd ave a problem with that. This novel involves love, growing up, hilarious incidents mixed with everyday emabresing moments and the frequent references to designer brands which for some peope might be annoying or shallow. I would recomend this book for beach reading something to do during the summer when your waiting to go somewhere whether it be the milion hour car ride to someplace its perfect!

Do you have 'it'? How far will you go to attain it? One girl will do whatever it takes to keep get and keep it.

Jenny Humphrey, the ever lovable Gossip Girl character, is leaving Constance Billard to go to Waverly Prep, a prestigious boarding school. Its time for her to shine and become the mysterious beauty that shes always wanted to be. New school, new image, new Jenny. It'll be a piece of cake. How wrong she was. Jenny embarks on an emotional rollercoster after being caught with her roomate's boyfriend, facing possible expulsion, doing an embarrasing cheer, and accused of being 'ponied'. Wow, what a beginning of the year for our Jenny.

I absolutely loved the Gossip Girl series, and when The It Girl came out, I was thrilled. I personally thought that this novel was alot more appealing than Gossip Girl since Jenny is someone who many teenage girls can relate to, unlike Blair and Serena, who were divas. Jenny has to overcome so much in this book that you can't not admire her. She isn't always self confident and fabulous, but that's what makes her so lovable. Shes the everyday teenage girl. But what makes this novel as addictive as it is, is that Jenny overcomes most of her problems, and believe me, she has a lot; but The It Girl is not predictable either and it keeps you wanting more.

This is a great, easy read, that's fun and leaves you craving for more.
