They're the teens you love to hate, and yet it's not all trash. Beneath the designer name-obsessed veneer and the nasty soap opera quality of Gossip Girl novels, there's plenty that's true and real for any teenager. Angst, creative passion, love, college applications, drinking, smoking, sex�?ure, these kids are obnoxious and spoiled, but their core issues are not a million miles away from every other teen's. And you know you love it.
“I have a sort of evil sense of humor and I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to do a dark comedy—darker than the comedy that is already in Gossip Girl novels…New characters are brought in for the sake of dying. I did want this novel to be original, though it’s funny in that the first novel was very loosely based on The Age of Innocence, so in a way this is a mashup of a mashup.”
