Publisher's Summary

Once upon a time, on New York City's Upper East side, two beautiful girls fell in love with one perfect boy....And the rest, as they say, is history. It's how Gossip Girl began.

"Hey people! You don't know me yet, but you will soon. I've been quiet until now, but something has happened, and I can't shut up about it: S is gone. Why? Well, to answer that question I'm going to have to backtrack, back to last winter of our sophomore year, when our pretty, rose-scented bubble burst. It all started with three inseparable, perfectly innocent 15-year-olds, S, B, and N. You know you love me, Gossip Girl."

It Had to Be You unveils the secrets behind the hot and sultry summer that a love triangle begins, why Serena really fled for boarding school, and how the legendary Gossip Girl column began.The prequel will undo some of the myths created in the eleven previous novels, so don't believe everything you've read thus far. After all, this is Gossip Girl.

Don't miss any of the gossip!

I loved the show. Did not love the audiobook.

What would have made Gossip Girl better?

I'm not sure. Being more like the show, I guess.

What was most disappointing about Cecily von Ziegesar’s story?

It was not anywhere near as juicy as the tv show.

Which scene was your favorite?

I don't have a favorite.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Annoyance.
