Jenny has left her Manhattan school to attend Waverly Academy, an elite boarding school where glamorous rich kids don´t let the rules get in the way of an excellent time. Jenny sets off to Waverly with big plans of reinventing herself. She´ll be a goddess - she´s a sophisticated city girl, after all! - and will find a boy who can properly worship her. But that´s going to be a little tricky since her self-absorbed new roommates, Callie Vernon and Brett Messerschmidt, aren´t exactly there to help - unless there´s something in it for them. But if getting caught with boys and going up against the Disciplinary Committee is what it takes, Jenny´s ready - she´ll do all that and more to become The It Girl.
Cecily von Ziegesar grew up in New York City and attended a private girls´ school. She always wanted to be a writer, and she was always a gossip, so the GOSSIP GIRL and THE IT GIRL novels were inevitable.
