Welcome to New York City's Upper East Side, where my friends and I get everything -- and everyone -- we want. Snagging the latest Marc Jacobs bag or your best friend's boyfriend isn't pretty, but it's always hot...It's almost graduation and our lives are really heating up. Everybody's into college and it's obviously time to party -- as if we hadn't been doing that already! Will Blair and Nate's love affair continue? More importantly, will Blair finally get into Yale? Or will Nate and Serena hook up in New Haven and leave Blair alone in the city?And as for the juiciest scoop of all, what's this we hear about Jenny leaving Constance Billard to go to boarding school? Only time will tell how everyone will end up, but one thing's for sure: love is in the air, and it smells a lot like Gucci Envy.

The gang’s back from the previous Gossip Girl novels, as is all that drama! Blair and her friends have almost reached graduation, but their senior year will be full of backstabbing, cheating, lust, kisses, and just more action! Can they all make it to graduation day?

Poor Blair walks in on her friend Serena kissing her (now former!) boyfriend, Nate in the bathroom during a party! Angry at her friend’s betrayal, Blair refuses to talk or hang out with Serena. But Serena and Nate’s relationship isn’t exactly a smooth ride—they may look like the perfect couple, but Nate can’t stop crying and the two aren’t completely happy. Maybe a quick dip in Nate’s coach’s Viagra will help…so long as Nate isn’t caught!

Jenny is out looking for a wild boarding school where she hopes she can grab as much attention and popularity as Serena, who attended a boarding school herself before (it was rumored) that she was kicked out!

It looks as if Serena and Nate aren’t the only naughty ones out there! Seems as if one boy isn’t enough for Vanessa, and soon Dan starts coming over for frequent visits, as is Vanessa’s boyfriend, Aaron. Will Aaron find out Vanessa’s been cheating on him, or will he not, and still take her on the road trip they’ve been planning?

The tension between these two former friends is further strained when both girls go for an open casting call for a new movie, and only one is called back! With this be an all-out war between the two beauty queens, or can they muster the dignity to breeze along as if nothing’s wrong?

Lucky for Blair, she soon finds herself in the arms of a handsome English lord who is staying at the same hotel as her! Who cares about Nate and her other troubles when she has sweet Lord Marcus? Being with the English nobleman has its benefits, like meeting designer Oscar la Renta and being fitted by the famous designer himself!

Can Blair and Lord Marcus stay together, even though his lordship is due to return to London soon? And could those nasty rumors that Marcus is already engaged possibly be true?! Will Blair suffer another heartbreak?

With all this action and gossip, will anyone concentrate on their final exams? Of course not! Who would rather study for biology when they could be swapping the latest juicy tidbits on the hottest couples out there?

When the big day comes for the seniors, it’s all about the big party at the Yale Club afterwards—will this be a happily-ever-after ending for the gang, or will it be heartbreak central? With last minute changes, lovely white graduation dresses and graduation suits, breakups and more, all this drama will end with a bang!

For Gossip Girl fans, this book won’t disappoint! Steamy relationship, rumors, and hot kisses galore! But I would only recommend this to the older readers, as there are lots of mentions of “it” as well as plenty of smoking and drug use.

I have read all of the goosip girls novels, and they were all very good, but this book was not has good has i had believed it to be. I have found that this story has gotten to be unrealistic. The fact Nate was so strong and endearing, but now all he does is break down and cry, that turned me off. Now i am totally happy that Blair finally found someone other than Nate and all the other rejects. I am very interested to find out will happen in the next book, but as usually i have to wait more than 6 months. Now yet again the ending made me almost not to want to read the next book considering ti was totalyl unrealistic, and out of character compared to the other books. Also the loud sex on the roof between Vanessa, and Dan turned me off, because yet again it doesnt seem like something that would happen. I would recomenned other gossip girl novels, but this one i am unsure of, but if you must read the book.

This is another good gossip girl book, probably the best one. Blair and Serena are finally graduating. Serena and Blair are fighting and not speaking. Seeing different people and leading different lives, Blair meets her new prince charming (literally) and Serena is going out with Nate. When the final day of highschool comes and the graduation party is happening, its impossible to stay mad for too long.
