    Book Description

    Carmen got the jeans at a thrift shop. They didn’t look all that great; they were worn, dirty, and speckled with bleach. On the night before she and her friends part for the summer, Carmen decides to toss them. But Tibby says they’re great. She’d love to have them. Lena and Bridget also think they’re fabulous. Lena decides they should all try them on. Whoever they fit best will get them. Nobody knows why, but the pants fit everyone perfectly. Even Carmen (who never thinks she looks good in anything), thinks she looks good in the pants. Over a few bags of cheese puffs they decide to form a sisterhood, and take the vow of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants . . . the next morning, they say good-bye. And now the journey of the pants–and the most memorable summer of their lives–begins. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars I really loved this book
    I really loved this book. My friend had read it so I thought I'd give it a try. Well I did and I loved it! It's about these four girls. Lena's the pretty,keep to herself kind of girl, Carmen,nicknamed Carmen "Carmeena" is the rebel of the group, Tibby's basically the outgoing one who is "not a people person", and Bridget's the athlete who won't take no for an answer. Carmen and Lena are shopping at a thrift store when Carmen buys a pair of pants-baggy,faded jeans, nothing really specail about them. Teh day before they all depart for the summer, they decide that they're going to share the "traveling" pants. Lena takes them with her to visit her grandparents in Greece,Tibby gets them next,working home at Wallman's where she meets a girl named Bailey, who's basically a young Tibby, who's ill with leukimia,Carmen's leaving home to stay with her father , and Bridget brings them to soccer camp, where the pants bring her good luck each game. But Bridget really wants them to spark a relationship with Eric, one of the coaches, who Bridget wants to go out with.
    this book is probably for girls ages twelve and up.That is the age apropriate level. This book is definitely girly-girl,so it's not the best book for book talks if your audience is made up of a lot of boys.
    Hope you enjoy!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants
    This book was very different from any book I have read before. It is about four girls who have formed a tight friendship since birth...also known as "The Septembers." Lena, Tibby, Carmen, and Bridget are spending their first summer away from one another in 15 years. Lena is going away to Greece with her younger sister to visit their grandparents. While there she discovers the boy of her dreams; Kostos. Tibby is staying home and working while she meets a 12-year-old girl that she becomes friends with that is dying of Leukemia. Carmen is off to South Carolina to visit her dad where she shockingly discovers hers and his new family and life. Finally Bridget, she spends her summer in Baja, California in soccer camp, flirty as she is she meets an older consular that she just has to hang out with. Before their summer begins they find a pair of pants that Carmen decided to buy at a used clothing store. They each try on the pants and discover their magic, they look wonderful on whomever wears them. They make rules for these pants, such as never to wash them, and then are off on their separate ways for the summer. They mail the pants to one another and keep in touch via email and letters throughout the summer and wear the pants as their interesting stories develop separately.
    I really enjoyed this book but felt frustrated when I wanted to continue reading about one girl and then it was switched to another. I recommend this book for anyone who enjoys stories about friendship or teenagers and love. It was a quick read and kept your interest. Also there is a sequal, The Second Summer of the Sisterhood, that is about their following summer.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A must read for all teenage girls
    This is one of my favorite books of all time and one every teenage girl should pick up at some time or another. Brashares skillfully weaves together the tale of 4 very different girls' adventures over one summer bringing them together by the means of a magical pair of pants representing their friendship. while the idea of the magical pair of pants may seem a bit farfetched to some, this story couldn't be more true to teenage life. Both humorous and heartwrenching, i enjoyed every page of this book. i especially enjoyed the quotes that appeared at the beginning of each chapter. i think every girl can relate to one of the characters in some way or another. I find it almost scary how much i can relate to Lena. My two best friends (who are a lot like Tibby and Carmen) also love this book and we've started our own sisterhood v. similar to the one in the book, which has made us even better friends.

    5-0 out of 5 stars MUST READ FOR TEEN GIRLS OF ALL AGES
    This book is an incredible look into the lives of 4 teenage girls as they face issues of their own and help eachother work through them. This is the best book I have ever read and I, like many teenagers do not like to read and finished this book within the first week I had it and right after I finished it I bought the sequel which is also incredible. I CAN'T wait for the third!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars I love this book!
    "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants?" you might ask.
    All the people (well, at least, me.) who have read it will say "Yes. This is a great book. The idea is very creative. (Magical Pants?). The characters are fun and believable. Carmen, Bridget, Tibby and Lena were best friends since they could remember.
    They always spend time together in the summer, but in this particular summer, they have to be apart. They discover that the pants Carmen had all along were magical!
    They decided that the pants should be passed around the world to each other so they would be together without actually being together!
    Ann Brashares is a great author, I could almost actually feel the sadness/anger/whatever emotions that the character is feeling!

    This book is not like any other!!! ... Read more

    Book Description

    The Pants first came to us at the perfect moment. That is, when we were splitting up for the first time. It was two summers ago when they first worked their magic, and last summer when they shook up our lives once again. You see, we don’t wear the Pants year-round. We let them rest so they are extra powerful when summer comes. (There was the time this spring when Carmen wore them to her mom’s wedding, but that was a special case.)

    Now we’re facing our last summer together. In September we go to college. And it’s not like one of those TV shows where all of us magically turn up at the same college. We’re going to four different colleges in four different cities (but all within four hours of one another—that was our one rule). We’re headed off to start our real lives.

    Tomorrow night at Gilda’s we’ll launch the Pants on their third summer voyage. Tomorrow begins the time of our lives. It’s when we’ll need our Pants the most. ... Read more

    Book Description

    With a bit of last summer’s sand in the pockets, the Traveling Pants and the Sisterhood that wears them embark on their 16th summer.
    Bridget: Impulsively sets off for Alabama, wanting to both confront her demons about her family and avoid them all at once.
    Lena: Spends a blissful week with Kostos, making the unexplainable silence that follows his visit even more painful.
    Carmen: Is concerned that her mother is making a fool of herself over a man. When she discovers that her mother borrowed the Pants to wear on a date, she’s certain of it.
    Tibby: Not about to spend another summer working at Wallman’s, she takes a film course only to find it’s what happens off-camera that teaches her the most.

    5-0 out of 5 stars the second summer is just as engrossing as the first
    With The Second Summer of the Sisterhood, I was delighted to find that entering the world of the four teenage girls of Besthesda, Maryland was just as wonderful the second time as the first. While it starts a bit slow, the plot definitely picks up and gathers momentum as it goes.
    All four deal with family issues and pain in this book. The memory of Bailey, Tibby's young friend who was claimed by leukemia in the first book, is painfully present in Tibby's mind as she struggles with her mother, who appears to be absorbed in the world of her two little siblings.
    Lena uncovers an unpleasant, hidden secret from her mother's past, and has a passionate- yet tragically short lived- reunion with Kostos, her handsome Greek boyfriend.
    Bridget is hardly recognizable in this second summer. After the disastrous event that happened to her in the first book, she quit soccer and dyed her hair brown. To recover her own identity, as well as to reunite with her mother's family, she sets of for Alabama on a life-changing mission.
    The only character I was disappointed in was Carmen. Apparently having learned nothing from her mistakes last summer, she nearly ruins her mother's romantic life. However, I think she- like the others- is even more believable and endearing than before! I definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoyed The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Can't Wait For Summer?
    Ann Brashares became one of my favorite authors after reading the first book, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. I felt that there was someone that wrote down on paper the feelings and emotions that me and my friends go through each day. So, when I found out the the second book was out, I rushed to my nearest bookstore and bought it right away. I finished it the first day I got it and felt so emotional after reading it. Because I read the first book, I could tell that Ann Brashares likes to throw curves in her stories, where the unexpected always happened. I liked that too, it keeps we wanting to move on, to read more, to not put the book down! And that is EXACTLY what you get when you read the Second Summer of the Sisterhood, when I found myself becoming as emotional as Tibby, Lena, Carmen, and Bee themselves! What makes the book all the more better is that it can appeal to anyone, teen or adult because it deals with situstions that are real. I believe it is all the more enjoyable as well because even how it is written, its in the same way that I talk to my friends so I feel more into it as it is hard for me to enjoy a book the way I do this one! Therefore, I definitely recommend this book to anyone looking forward to summer coming up and waiting for new adventures of their own!

    3-0 out of 5 stars Summertime Is Still Sweet....
    I'm a big reader of books of all kinds - teen fare that I can get away with reading, the oh so popular chick lit (a la Bridget Jones Diary), and of course classics and top sellers. So I've got a lot to compare Ann Brashares 2nd offering to - and overall I'd give it a 3.5 stars rather then 4 or 3.

    The story itself picks up 10 months after the last one began - summer break yet again with the girls beginning their yearly tradition of breaking into the gym where their mothers had exercise class together and thus brought the four main characters together -

    Lena - gorgeous but shy and serious, deals with lessons in love and heartbreak via Kostos (her Greek grandparents family friends son) in this novel...my only problem is that she doesn't really seem to change her attitude much from the last book until the very end, and even then she seems unaware that she is growing up.

    Carmen - Rehashes the storyline of the last book in this one with a few plot points changed - basically plays a bratty daughter yet again. Carmen is probably my least fave character in terms of development both plot and characterwise - she never seems to learn anything (which perhaps is a character trait).

    Tibby - Seems to have a much smaller role in this book, particularly towards the end, doens't really grow much but revisits the previous summer in an interesting way.

    Bee - My fave character and in my opinion has the strongest and most interesting storyline - where she impulsively takes off to Alabama to visit her long lost grandmother and to discover more about her bi-polar mother who killed herself many years ago. Its interesting because Bee appears to be the only one who changed OVER the course of the year, and thus you get to watch her become something from those changes instead of just re-visiting last summers experiences and lessons.

    All in all I enjoyed Brashares writing, I love the quotes she uses, and she makes you feel for each of the characters. The only thing I have to criticize her on is the lack of major growth the girls should have experienced during the school year, as the mistakes they made in this book were far too similar to the previous years. Personally the summer before grade 10 and the summer before grade 11 (or grade 11 and grade 12) were completely different times for me, and I think the girls really should've learnt something more then quadratic functions over the year. Another small criticism is that the girls are almost too functioned on their said plot points...Brashares could've created a more 3-dimensional world but granted a book can only show you so much. Finally I think she makes the girls a bit over-emotional at times to the point where it becomes unbelievable. However if you are into the ever popular continuity-necessary teen novel that dominates the market today, then pick this (and the first) book up for some fun summer reads.

    4-0 out of 5 stars The Second Summer of the Sisterhood
    I read the first book in the series and loved it, so of course I had to read the second one. The reason why I only gave this book four stars is because, there were questions unanswered and when I finished the book I didn't know that there was gonna be a sequel. My guess is that all of my questions will be anwered then. Like the first book it;s about four friends, Lena, Tibby, Carmen, and Bridget. But in this book it goes into more depth with the relationship of Lena and Kostos. Bridget also meets a guy a soccer camp. What I guess I didn't like was that Bailey wasn't in this book. She was one of my favorite characters in the book besides the four main characters. I can't wait 'till the third sisterhood book comes out, Girs In Pants, but I guess I have to because it doesn't come out 'till january, 25, 2005. Well I hope this review was helpful. Oh, and sorry about all of the grammer mistakes that I made, i'm not very good at grammer.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Girls Are Back - I read for 8 hours straight!
    I absolutly loved this book, and for that note the one before it also. I don't say that about many books! It was truly touching - I cried for Lena twice!

    The girls - Lena, Tibby, Carmen, and Bee - Are off again on another exciting story! I was touched by all of them equally (except for Tibby, who didn't have THAT much substance in the book but it was still good! I loved that they brought Bailey's spirit back into the book! I also am glad Kostos came back, even if.... em I didn't like the end... But it was very good and I enjoyed it!!!! ... Read more

    This book, the latest in the hugely popular Chicken Soup for the Soul series, contains stories,poems, and cartoons relating to the specific troubles that traumatize teenagers everywhere. There are plentyof stories about dating ("HE KISSED MY TEETH!"), friendships (don't gossip), and school.But Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul doesn't shy away from the big issues either, with essays onsuicide, dying young, and drunk driving. This book stems from the knowledge that teens know their ownconcerns best—thus, much of the book is written by teens themselves, which gives the book a veryaccessible, informal tone. Also, the authors had each piece evaluated by as many teenagers as possible. Thecare shows. Teenage Soul is always respectful, and doesn't minimize any of the dramas ofadolescence. It does, however, mete out plenty of perspective. This wise, tender, funny book is filled withwisdom useful to teens (and everybody else, too). ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing
    "Chicken Soup for the Teenage soul" is about teenagers who go through some bad & good times. The book is also about teen love, friendship, sad poems and also some stories. The book helps other teenagers realize that they're not the only ones who go through rough times. It also tells teenagers to not take life for granted, and that there is only one life to live. If you mess up you can't go back. The book has teenagers who tell their stories about bad times and it gives them inspiration to keep on trying. The stories & poems the teenagers write show other teens that life is not always fair and can be difficult at times, but no matter what they always don't give up.

    To Me this book is a really interesting and fun book to read. This book has also taught me that everybody has problems no matter what it is. The book has also taught me to share what I feel and how to express my self. This is why I like the book "Chicken soup for the teenage soul letters" so much. I would really recommend other teenagers to read this book, because it tells you how to deal with your problems with out hurting your self or others around you. I really don't hate anything about this book, it is very good to read, and it really does help you. I think the Author wrote a very good book. I will be reading all of the books they publish. The book really touched me, and made me look at life from a different point of view.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Most Touching and Inspiring book I've ever read!
    When I first heard about Chicken Soup For The Teenage Soul, I was not in a hurry to purchase or even read it. Later though, my freind bought it and I read a story he told me too. WOW! That one page of what he went through totally changed my perspective on life. I went home and bought the book that night. When I began to read it I relized what I had read was just the beginning of a renewal on the way that I treat and look at my life. Day after day I read a few stories at a time. There were stories that caused my to laugh, cry, smile, frown, get scared, think, and love. If there were more stars beside just 5, I would give them to this book. I feel like this book has renewed so many things in my life that I believe i am a different person. I also have learned many lessons about family, life, freinds, and many many other things. I would recomend this book to anyone that needs a little hope, inspiration, renewal, or just a nice read. Thank yo for your time and if you read Chicken Soup for the Teenage soul I hope that you enjoy, wait, I know that you will enjoy every story in there. Thank You!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Very good
    This book is oacked with awesome stories about growing up. I recommend it to all teens.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Chicken soups
    The Chicken Soup for the Teenagers soul books I think are the best book to tell teenagers how it really is, the peer pressure, love, loss, friendship, and family. If I didn't have this book or any of the others I don't think I would make it through my teenage years. This book has helped me with the loss of my grandpa, my family problems, and my relatonships with guys especially with the ones that didn't work out.

    The book Chicken soup for the soul is a really good book to read. It is a book that cover almost every topic that comes up in a teenagers life. This book is written by many people and all are great stories and poems. Also, this book is said to have lead some people in the right path. Maybe you are caught up in some stuff and you don't know where you are going to end up, I would advise that you read this book.
    I enjoyed reading this book a lot. It showed me many things in a new point of view. It showed me how words can hurt other people and that any kind of gossip is bad gossip. In the book it says " It is easy to drop your words but not pick them back up." In many ways this book has help me to be a better person.
    I really didn't have any dislikes about this book. Other than talking about hugs and kisses, it was a really fun book to read. One story called A simple Christmas card really touched me. It was about this girl that had no friends and had problems at home. She joined this club, but she could tell that they didn't like her. So the girl had decided to jump off of a bridge. So she was going to leave her parnets a letter in the mailbox, but when she opened it she found a letter from one of the people from the club. They had wanted to be friends with her. So she went back inside and thought to herself that someone really did care about her and her life.
    My favorite part of the book is the story named Anne. It was bout a young girl that was a teenager and laughed and cried like everyone eles. The only thing that was different was that she spent two years hidding in an attic. On August 1, 1944, two months after her 15th birthday, Nazi police burst through the door. yanking open drawers, ripping mattresses, the police stuffed jewelry in their pockets and looked for any hidden money. Then, shoving Anne and her family down the steps, into waiting cars, they drove off. Anne's sister died of malnutition, and her mother of exhaustion. Anne herself died at the age of 17. She never thought that no one would be interested in her life , but she was wrong. To this very day people still read the story about a teenager called Anne Frank. This and many other stories showed me how many people do care about you even if you don't know it. ... Read more

    Wanna know how the other half lives? From the viewpoint of a teenager? Then Gossip Girl will provide! One part internet gossip site and two parts rousing commentary from rich Upper East Side private school-ers. Gossip Girl is a lot of fun; the characters are smart, spoiled, selfish and too big for their britches; and the storyline, which takes place in the matter of a week or so, spotlights the best mix of teen angst in a grown-up world.

    Serena van der Woodsen is back in town after a year of boarding school in Connecticut, and things couldn't be worse. Seems something is amiss with Serena's old friends. Blair, Isabel and Kati have better things to do besides wonder what Serena did to get kicked out of boarding school. However, not everyone is upset over Serena's return: Blair's boyfriend, Nate, is having a hard time being faithful; Nate's slimy friend, Chuck, is hoping the rumors of Serena's promiscuity are true; and Jenny, Dan and Vanessa find things in common with their new friend.

    Not sure if this book would be for the young adult set or not, but it would be a great book either way. A different teen novel where no one gets carded, everyone smokes and fundraising parties (complete with Kate Spade goodie bags) are hosted by illustrious teenage committees. Very quick read and simple writing that doesn't sound like a high school essay. I recommend this novel with two manicured thumbs up! Hope there is a sequel in the works.

    5-0 out of 5 stars AWESOME
    The first Gossip Girl book was incredibly addicting. It was also very funny and entertaining. Blair Waldorf, one of the most popular and wealthy girls at her school in New York, is a character that people love to read about. Yeah, she's very bitchy, but it just makes the book a lot more addicting and hilarious. This first book in the series is about Blair's best(ditzy) friend Serena coming back to NY after a year at boarding school (of which she was kicked out). Blair, who is mad at her, decides to take revenge on her former best friend. Awesome light read.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Incredibly stupid
    I dont know about the rest of you but thid book is pretty pitiful. These people in these book are incredibly sad and dumb. They put on shows for everyone else and never show true feelings. Yeah they're all rich and well-off but its absolutely ridiculous. The gossip is the dumbest thing i've ever heard. And thats mostly what they do: gossip. The parents the kids, everybody. If this was reccommended to you from sisterhood DO NOT READ IT. Its crap and a waste of time trust me. Read Sloppy Firsts or The Black Book: The Diary Of a Teenage Stud

    5-0 out of 5 stars OMGosh! This book is so incredibly addicting!
    I love to read and I must say that this is one of the most addicting books I have ever read. Once you start to read it you just can't put it down. The lives of these Upper East Side teens are just so juicy! Serena is the greatest but Blair is just so.... b****y. (But she gets nicer ;) )Keep reading this amazing series and if you haven't started yet then do so now!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Surprising
    By the first three chapters, I was convinced this was the most immature book I've ever read. I thought it was a waste of time. As I continued, it became addictive. Now, by the time I finished, I'm can't wait to start book two. It was stupid, but I still loved it. The entire attitude of the characters and situations makes you think, "I can't believe this!" but still gets you wanting more, you just can't get enough. ... Read more

    The GG books are the greatest books written. Between Blair and her jelousy and Serena with her flings there was just so much action. It was non stop amazment and I think it only fit that every teenage girl experiance the GG phenomenon, it's worth the time spent in your room to read these amazing books!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Extraordinary Books!
    I absolutely love the Gossip Girl book series! I read all five of the books in about 8 or 9 days ... they were that good!! Although the characters in the Gossip Girl series are mind-blowingly rich, it seems that they deal with the same problems as average teens, such as drugs, back-stabbing friends, and break-ups. When you think about it, that's really the messege of these books: that we're not all as different as we think we are. Also, Cecily von Ziegesar is such a convincing writer, sometimes I feel like I know Blair, Serena, Nate, and the rest of the gang, instead of them just being fictional characters! I recommend the Gossip Girl series to anyone who enjoys romance, drama, comedy, and rich people making fools of themselves!

    4-0 out of 5 stars It's actually pretty good!
    Ok...This book wasn't like OMG I love it, but it was a really good book for teenagers. It has plenty of characters that you can get a feel for. It's a great book once you really get into it. You're kind of always wondering what's going to happen next.

    5-0 out of 5 stars AWSOME BOOKS!!!
    this is such an awsome book, if your into girlie girlie type books...'ve 3 of them and am currently reading the 4th...you should tottally read these books. they're a little hard to get into but once you do your hooked! i hear the 5th is best so get reading...also i suggest the A-List novels...those are WAY better then these even though these books are good.

    5-0 out of 5 stars THE best books ever!
    My friend gave me the first book. I was reluctant to read it. It didn't look great. The next week i had finished all 5 of them. My new favorite series. I loved them all sooooo much. i instantly felt compassion for blair, hatred toward serena, and attracted to nate, except for the weed. They were characters almost no one can relate to, but we love them anyway. If you haven't read these 5 treasures, do it now or regret it forever. ... Read more

    Book Description

    This latest offering in the best-selling Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul series explores a host of challenges faced by today's teens. Within its pages teens will find portraits of life's complexities expressed from the viewpoint of their peers. Teen contributors share their thoughts and feelings on difficult issues, ranging from poor self-image to thoughts of suicide, from family discord to coping with the loss, from peer pressure to school violence.

    Teens ranked stress as one of their top concerns (along with child abuse and STDs). Oftentimes, the pressure can feel overwhelming, whether they involve worrying about an upcoming test, competition sports, family responsibilities, dating, or more extreme issues such as depression, suicide and school violence.

    The first three volumes of the Teenage Soul series and the companion journal illustrate the ongoing popularity of this series (unit sales exceed 11 million). Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul on Tough Stuff and the Spring 2001 release Teenage Soul Letters will undoubtedly follow suit as the next best-sellers in a phenomenally popular series.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I Love the new Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul!
    Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul on Tough Stuff was a book I feel all teenagers and for that matter adults should read. It really touched me. At times I cried, and at times I laughed. This book really touched home. It reminded me that no matter how bad my day was, there is someone that has gone through the same thing and maybe worse things that same day. I have all the Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul books and this is my favorite.

    I hope others can recieve that same joy I recieved from it. This book like the others will serve as a devotional for me. Each story has some meaning or lesson that will touch home.

    I thought this was an excellent book. It talks about true stories that happened to people. It makes people feel better to know that other people out there are going through and dealing with the same situations. It makes people realize how good their life really is, and also how bad it could be. I would recommend this book to anyone, no matter what types of books they liked.

    5-0 out of 5 stars addictive
    Gossip Girl series is about a girl basically spying on these teenagers in high school, either freshmen or seniors, living in New York City's Upper East Side. If you read the first gossip girl, you'll read the fifth, even the sixth... even if it's only because you are wondering if Blair got into Yale or ever has sex with Nate. Or if you are dying to know about how Serena got kicked out of private school... well in the fifth one, I Like it Like that, you find out neither of those things. But you do find out more about Jenny's boyfriend and Dan being a poet. I Like It Like That is as good as the other four, and it makes you wait until the sixth comes out. It shows no signs of Gossip Girl series ending, and it kind of makes you wonder when you will ever find out the stuff you really want to know. But it's Gossip Girl... you know you love her.

    4-0 out of 5 stars You Know You Love Me
    I Like It Like That, the fifth novel from the Gossip Girl series was the least eventful out of the five but still kept me on the edge of my seat. Blair, Serena, and Serena's older brother Erik spent their spring break on the slopes in Sun Valley while Aaron and the rest of Blair's family is off surfing on one of the many Hawaiian Islands she has already frequently traveled to. To Blair's dismay, her ex-boyfriend Nate, his current girlfriend Georgie, and Chuck were staying at Georgie's Sun Valley mansion the exact same dates. Blair developed a crush on Erik as their trip progressed which landed Serena in an uncomfortable position. Back in New York, Dan began to lose interest in his poetic partner Mystery and realized he was still in love with Vanessa as she realized the same. Jenny became overly obsessed with her boyfriend Leo and stalked him while he was meandering through the busy Upper East and West sides of Manhattan taking care of his jobs chores and job as a dog walker. Jenny's best friend Elise was attracted to Jenny's brother Dan but Dan knew it was not appropriate to have feelings for a girl his younger sister's age. Nothing serious happened between Blair and Erik which Serena was relieved to learn. After break, when school started again, as always, many rumors floated about regarding the flawless duo. I wonder if Blair is still secretly lusting after Nate and does he has feelings for her? I am looking forward to reading all the future Gossip Girl books and discovering whom the secretive gossip queen actually is.

    In my opinion, the first four books in the Gossip Girl series were more enjoyable and had deeper plot lines. I would recommend the entire Gossip Girl series for girls age thirteen through fifteen years old. They are a quick read and the entire series could be covered in just a few short weeks. This is great summer reading full of flirty fun and romance. The books are entertaining and easy to toss into a beach bag or suitcase. Blair, Serena, Dan, Nate, Vanessa, Jenny, Erik and the rest of the Gossip Girl characters are loveable and find themselves in situations that girls can relate to. Okay, Cecily von Ziegesar, bring on Gossip Girl number six. I know that I will be ready to sink my teeth into the next novel as soon as it is available.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Dangerously Addictive
    The whole Gossip Girl series has all the gossip anyone could ever want in a book. The tales of socialites lives are just so interesting that you want to be part of the story. It is extremely difficult to even put the book down until the final words are read, and even then you just want some more of it.

    1-0 out of 5 stars i dont like it like that...
    After seeing quite quite a few reviews and a woman clearly over thirty buying this book, i decided to give it a go. The book revolves around a few disgustinly stuck up socialites. It's all about wearing designer clothes, partying, and of course-getting adorable rich boys. Gossip girl seems to be filled with things people gossip about. Silly things. Stupid things. And for lack of better words, this is a horrible book. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars What do I think? -Clark PLC-
    Having read the first book in this series, I understand Cecily Von Ziegesar's writing style. I am a fan of how she writes about bizarre occurrences which fall in the way of her characters path of life. By writing mostly about upper-class families, this book is alluring to most teens and I recommend it to all girls who are looking for a fun story. The diverse personalities of Von Ziegesar's characters, makes this novel more dramatic and entertaining to read. The young adults in the book have to deal with many hardships and obstacles to make it through graduating and applying to colleges. They must attend interviews which they aren't quite yet prepared for, and must use wit and charm to overcome the slack and nerves that they have gathered. Dan, a writer who is too involved in his up scaled girlfriend Serena, plays a big role in this story while being not as well-off as his companions. Other than having to deal with Dan's emotional poems, Serena must try to bring back her lost relationship with her old best friend while being stuck with her after a horrible wedding of an imperfect couple. Throughout this climactic novel, all characters must find a way to be victorious in their strenuous battles of being a graduated teen.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A complete guilty pleasure!
    After a stressful junior year full of books like The Scarlet Letter, The Great Gatsby, and The Grapes of Wrath, I was eager to fill my summer with some lighter literature. I found the first Gossip Girl book (...)and read it about five times. After what seemed like an endless wait, the second novel came out, and I ate it up. Although you may not want to do your AP English 4 book report on it, You Know You Love Me is an awesome book if you're into gossip, money, shopping, scandal, and relationships (and who isn't???). The storyline, about a group of devious high society New York kids, may not relate to many people, but that's why we love it so much! However, I WAS able to relate to some of the things the characters are going through, especially their college applications and interviews (...). I would definitely reccomend this book, and the first Gossip Girl, to any teenage girl who's looking for a book that will make you smile but not make you think too hard.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Another great and addicting Gossip Girl novel!
    This great book in the series was so addicting, I literally couldn't put it down. I took it everywhere with me! The lives of our favorite Upper East side teens get even more intense and realtionships really start to get interesting in Gossip Girl #2. These books just bring out the gossiper within us all.Keep reading, I know I can't wait to get my hands on the next one!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Gossip Girl at her best
    The title, YOU KNOW YOU LOVE ME, is most likely derived from the way Gossip Girl signs her web posts on her site, gossipgirl.net. All the fans know this!

    Blair may be bitchy but she does have the most depth out of all the characters - and she is bright, unlike...

    ...Nate, who acts like an utter jerk at Mrs. Waldorf's wedding, the worst day of Blair's life, a time when she reallllly needs some support. He takes it up with Jenny Humphrey, a stalker freshman at Constance Billard, a prestigous all-girls school where she gawks at and aspires to be the kinds of girls Blair and Serena Van der Woodsen already are without any effort required on their parts. All Nate does is smoke weed and he expects to get into Brown because his interviewer convinced him to apply early action. So suddenly, right before the application date, he's completely diligent and absorbed with his school work. Nate is instantly drawn to Jenny because he feels he doesn't need to strive to impress her, which is the opposite of the state of his relationship with Blair.

    Serena is no longer the leper she was in book one. Nope. Now she is officially cool again, despite the fact Blair hates her guts. Now that Serena is herself again, boys flock to her as if they have been beckoned. She is beautiful, graceful, and lithe, just like a delicate nymph. Still, she is the source of a lot of Blair Waldorf's anger and frustrations, especially with her constant nonchalant and carefree attitude. She too wants Brown admission. She too has mediocre grades. So she figures she'll win the film festival and show Brown she's something more. With Vanessa Abrahms, film lover and admirer of Dan, who once swooned over Serena (romantic triangle!!!), things work out in Serena's favor. Even if they didn't, you know she'd persevere. And if Brown doesn't want to accept her, "&@#$ it!" as her hot older brother and Brown enrollee, Erik, tells her.

    Dan is pathetic. He writes poetry expressly for Serena, all about his "love" for her. Alas, Serena wants no more than friendship. Dan and Vanessa get together over his caffeine and nicotine fix, and suddenly, everything is peachy and Serena is old news. I love how GG's pressing issues are always solved, if not in the first, then usually by the next. Except for...

    ...Blair's Yale admission. It's her father's alma mater. Blair is gorgeous and has brains to boot. She could probably even do Harvard if she felt like it. But she only has eyes for Yale, which is a shame since she totally screwed up her interview. Of course, she can always blame her stepbrother, Aaron, being he had her in a cheesy motel room eating Chee-tos and chocolate bars and didn't wake up (and wake her up) until a half hour before the very interview began. Still, she can't blame Aaron for the fact she KISSED HER INTERVIEWER! ::ouch::

    Aaron is laid back and Ivy League bound. The son of fat and rosacea-faced Cyrus Rose, his existence thrives on herbal cigarettes. He's a good character addition to the series and although Blair seems to loathe his existence at first, by the end of the book, she's coming around to being okay with him, in the tiniest way imaginable, that is.

    Now for Mrs. Waldorf's wedding to homely Cyrus! Everyone has a part in it, whether it be a guest or a maid of honor, like Serena, Kati Farkas, and Isabel Coates. Everyone will be there, including the staff of Vogue magazine, to take pics for an upcoming issue. Blair seemingly at first has no support or a way to channel her teen angst and anguish over the fact her mother is marrying a rich nitwit. Rich, yet a nitwit nonetheless. Nate is no help, as he totally blows her off and then goes off to smooch with Jenny behind her back. Mrs. Waldorf herself is urging Blair Cornelia Waldorf to become Blair Cornelia Waldorf-Rose. Until Serena finds her amidst a hysterical sobbing fit, complete with mascara-laced tears, it seems as if Blair is destined for doom.

    I love that Blair and Serena rekindle their friendship in Blair's time of need. You knew their reconciling was going to pop up sooner or later. Everything usually does go right in the world of Gossip Girl. :) Read this one. Von Ziegesar has her great and okay Gossip Girl books and I have yet to hate an installment of the series. This second book is one of the better novels!

    5-0 out of 5 stars You know you love me is the best book ever!
    The book You know you love me was the best. My friend Kelly told me about it while we were talking so I decided to give it a try. I am a senior in high school so many of the things that Blair and Serena experienced I may have to experience sooner or later that's why the book was helpful to me. In New York it seems a lot different than California, I understand that the girls attend private school but there is still a big difference in schools. I attend Narbonne High School in Harbor City, California and, there are still 'cool' people and then there are the losers. At my school there is "DA POLE" where all the cool people hang out and well every where else is just there. I hang out there and I don't think that I'm a better person because of it I really enjoy the attention at times. At other times it can be rather frustrating. Buying a pair of jeans one week and the next four other girls have them I hate that. I am sure Blair has gone through that plenty of times. But that is the least of her worries in this book. With Nate cheating on her with a younger girl that has to hurt. All of this at the most important time in her life, her mother is remarrying, her father is Gay and she is ready to lose her virginity. My instincts tell me that she is glad she made the decision that she did. With this book now being my favorite now I would recommend it to anyone whom loves gossip. Sure no one loves gossip when it's about him or her but who doesn't like to hear a good story from time to time. Read it, it will change the way you look at things. It definitely changed me! ...

    S and B and J and N are back, along with A, D, V, and assorted other rich, catty Manhattan teenagers in this third installment of the Gossip Girl series. An omniscient and anonymous narrator keeps track of the scene in www.gossipgirl.net (now an actual site), where the rumors fly, backs are stabbed, and celebrity sightings are dutifully reported. Serena (S) and Blair (B) are best friends again, shoring each other up as Blair faces life without her ex, Nate, who has hooked up with a sweet, busty 14-year-old, and Serena fends off advances from drop-dead-gorgeous rock star, Flow. Life’s rough. Meanwhile, Vanessa and Dan play the will-he/won’t-he game of sex, and Aaron tries to thwart his own crush on new stepsister Blair.

    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…sure, 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. (Ages 14 and older) --Emilie Coulter ... Read more

    This book, along with the other Gossip Girl novels, are some of the few extremely good books i have read. Cecily Von Ziegesar knows how to truely make you care for these materialistic, sterio-typing teens.
    I was completely happy to see that for once, things were going good for Blair, and i was eve more happy to see that Nate was coming to his sences and realizing Jenny didn't even compare to Blair. I have already bouth the fourth Gossip Girl novel and I am planning on startng that very soon!

    Until next time
    You know you love me!

    5-0 out of 5 stars This is all I've ever wanted!
    Okay I finished reading "All I Want is Everything" about a month ago and it's still buzzing in my head. Blair and Serena become so happy together. Blair made me laugh out loud with some of the stuff she thinks and Serena's beauty and... blondness is hilarious. Nate is absolutely wicked in this book which makes me love him more. Jenny turns into a creepy physco. Aaron brings in the picture his hot friend Miles who gets dirty with Blair... hint hint. This is absolutely captivating and I finished it in half an hour. You just want more and more. This is the best book yet personally. There's way more clothes, drinking, sex, and drugs in this one which makes it even more juicier. You're steaming over who's Gossip Girl and you get a few hints. Every gossiper should read this book.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I can really relate to this book!
    This book was really good! I loved every moment of it. I normally dont read that much but I read the whole thing in one night. I thought it was really cool cause Jennifer in the book is like me. My name is Jeninfer, I'm short with brown curly hair, and a freshman liking a senior.

    I think any high school girl can relate to a lot in the book. The whole thing about seeing your ex boyfriend with another girl bothering you and stuff like that.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Good, but not great.
    Okay, I'm only 3/4 through the 3rd installment of this witty series, but I'm beginning to get bored. The problem with series is that they just become embellishments of the intro novel. Gossip Girl #1 was AWESOME because all the characters were new and exciting. Now, I'm just plain tired of reading about Nate's constant state of 'baked-ness', Serena's 24/7 'hotness', Vanessa's rebelliousness, Dan's torturedness, Blair's whininess and Chuck's sliminess. Having an international rock star hot for 17 year old Serena is just plain unbelievable.

    Also, this series said that these kids are consumed with drugs, drinking, smoking, partying and sex. I've seen a LOT of the first four, but where's this 'sex' thats so touted? So far, no one's had sex, although its been 'alluded' to (Nate and Serena in the first novel and Blair and Nate TRYING to, but....thats it. Its made to seem like its a constant orgy, which its not.

    I will continue this novel and also read the last two, if only because I feel an attachment to these kids, but I hope their plots aren't contrived and predictable (I'm tired of shopping at Barneys, smoking pot in the park, etc.)

    I hope the last two installments are fresher than this one. Ho-Hum. The one thing that keeps me smiling is von Ziegesar's wit and humor, especially describing these kids' thoughts of the other kids (especially Blair's thoughts about Serena's eternal lovliness) and Cyrus and Blair's mother's PDA. Hilarious!

    5-0 out of 5 stars This Book is on my top 3 fav. books!!!
    I loved this book! When i went to the book store and just bought it i didnt think it would be this great!! Most of the book was great but when it came to the end between jenny, nate, and blair it was sorta stupid, there should've been a waaayyy better ending. But other then the weird ending the book was totally great! I just love this book, it's addictive, its fun to read, especially how it describes how rich they all are! ... Read more

    For those many readers who liked the first edition of Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul, here comes yet another helping, with 101 more stories on subjects such as love, friendship, random acts of kindness, etc. This volume contains even more poems that you can read quickly when you just need a boost of self-confidence. This book has even more stories on relationships, how to overcome obstacles and learning important lessons. I have to say that I liked this Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul better than the previous ones, because there is even more stories dealing with tough stuff such as anorexia, divorce, etc. Each story is unique in its own way but one thing is for sure: each story touches the reader and makes them stop and think about how all of their actions have consequences, some good, some bad.

    Jennifer Love Hewitt contributed yet another story for this book, as well as Andrew Keegan and Elisa Donovan. I strongly encourage teenagers, pre-teens and even adults to read this book in order to better understand the feelings teenagers' are experiencing, and how to deal with these often confusing emotions. Lovers for the Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul will not be disappointed, especially when they learn that a Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul III is also in stores.

    Chicken soup for the teenage soul II¡Xa book of love, life and learning by Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen and Kimberly Kirberger made the #1 New York Times bestseller list and made my list of meaningful books.
    In a way Chicken soup made me feel that I am not the only one left alone with all my teenage problems. There are a lot of kids my age out there who are dealing with the exact same problems and more.
    The importance of this book is not to read all those love or sad stories that you usually see in movies, but actually to relate many of these real experiences in your life! It¡¦s like a guidebook, an instruction book or a reference guide that you can always flip back to when you¡¦re having a hard time. These experiences can be used to consult the way other teens have struggled through situations that we might encounter and help us to develop our own path to solving our problems.
    Another reason I would recommend this book is that its inspirational stories can help counter all the negative stories we get from the media. It gives people the other side of the story that there is hope for the human race.
    There is one shocking story of bravery that stuck in my mind called ¡§Hero of the ¡¦Hood¡¨, about Mike Powell, whose mother, Cheryl, was fifteen when she had Mike. Fonso, Mike¡¦s father, had psychological problems, and after he was released from prison, he forced Mike to do pushups for hours when Mike was only four. When Mike was barely eight, Fonso was murdered, and Cheryl brought home Marcel who was even worse and got her hooked on cocaine. Marcel was violent and often did horrible things to all Cheryl¡¦s kids. Cheryl began not to return home more and more often, leaving only Mike to take care of all his younger brothers and sisters. When it was the right age for them to be educated, Mike encouraged them to go to school, get good grades and be model citizens. At last Mike and all his seven other brothers and sisters were rescued and went to live with their grandparents. Though they still struggle, the children are in a loving environment, and Mike is pursuing his goal to start a small company that can help street kids who were like he and his siblings once were.
    When I read these real life struggles for decent life, I feel that my problems are really not so insurmountable, and that if people can keep hoping and have confidence that what they are doing is right, even though the path is so difficult, then they will succeed.

    Chicken soup for the teenage soul II was a fun book! THis book never got boring, it always had something interesting to learn about. Many of the stories made me cry, laugh and left me wondering of what happen to the person in the story. These are the stories that real teens want to hear about because, they come from teens that have experienced some struggles along their life, and want other teens to learn from their mistakes. I give this book an A+ for the awsome stories that make you not want to put the book down. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Burning questions left unanswered.
    Will Nate and Georgina, his new rehab pal, end up being an item?
    Will Jenny and her new man live happily ever after? Will Jenny's new best friend Elise interfere?
    Will Blair get into Yale? Will Elise's father ever get the chance to explain why he tried to get with Blair romantically? Will Blair stop loving Nate?
    Will Serena continue to be famous, ditzy, and wanted on all the runways?
    Will Dan and Mystery Craze, the yellow-toothed and yellow nailed poetess, fall madly, deeply in love?

    Will Vanessa, Dan's girlfriend, find out that he hasn't merely been cheating, but CHEATING CHEATING??? Will she survive?
    Is Chuck Bass bisexual?
    And, the most burning question of them all...
    WHO IS GOSSIP GIRL?
    All of these questions are left unanswered till book number five. Quite frankly, it's infuriating. What leads to the end is suspenseful and enthralling - you will be so absorbed you'll be unable to put this book down till it's over. Nate ends up caught for his weed smoking and is forced to attend rehab meetings, where he meets a beautiful Snow White lookalike named Georgina Sparks. Blair decides she wants to go to rehab too for her bulimia, yet really wants to be close to Nate again. She sees him with Georgina and her entire plan is thrown off. Not only that, but she finds that a handsome Yale graduate who she senses has feelings for her is the FATHER of one of her younger classmates at Constance Billard. Dan, on the other hand, thinks he is in love with Vanessa until he meets eccentric Mystery Craze and ends up cheating. Clearly, his fame over his poetry has diluded his mind. Jenny meets her admirer and bonds with Elise, her new best friend, over nude figure painting and 'experimentation,' which she deems 'overrated.' Serena lives a carefree, no-worries life, becoming a model and having success practically knock at her door. So much more happens in this book, you'll be dying to read the next so that all of these loose ends can finally be tied together. Recommended age: 13 and up.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Sex, fashion, drugs and...Yale?!
    This, in my opinion, is one of the better Gossip Girl books, despite some of the less kind reviews. The GG gang makes a plethora of effortless achievments: Dan's published poem in the New Yorker, Serena suddenly transforming into a glam model, Vanessa's film being used as a backdrop for the long-anticipated NYC fashion show.

    And then there are some things not to flaunt and take pride in. Like Blair's botched Yale interview and Nate's getting busted for smoking weed, for example. Blair tries to redeem herself by speaking to one of the Yale alumni and prospects of him putting in a good word for her seem good. But then, an affair begins between them (innocent type, I'd say). As for Nate, his landing into a clinic for problem teens introduces Georgina Sparks, an ethereal Snow White-type beauty who has an ugly problem with prescription drugs. They chill at her grandiose palace and Nate saves her from nearly dying of a prescription overdose. Blair, meanwhile, realizes her sexy leading man isn't the Clark Gable to her Audrey Hepburn she thought he was. When Blair tries to win back Nate's love, she humiliates herself at the clinic, first by admitting to her bulimia. Plus, she meets her new competition. Now, Georgina Sparks is vying for Nate's affections, only the vying really seems to be over with. Georgie's clearly won.

    I find it irking Serena has no real issues in any of the books, unless you count her almost being a leper when she first returned to New York from boarding school. Still, she was quickly able to bounce back from that "trauma." Now, she debuts as a runway model in the fashion show, one in which Christina Ricci is a guest. Meanwhile, she's fallen head over heels in "love" with Aaron, Blair's sexy, herbal cigarette-smoking stepbrother.

    Vanessa submits Dan's poem, "Sluts," to the New Yorker. "Sluts" proceeds to head on towards worldwide fame. Mention the title and instantaneously, the New York population knows just what you're talking about. And despite the fact that Dan is angry at Vanessa (he channeled the anger into the poem), he is pleased to have that recognition - it goes to his head. Proof of this is his affair with Mystery Craze, the yellow-toothed and yellow-nailed poet who Dan finds incredibly sexy for some peculiar reason. Also proof of his insanity is his agent, who feels the need to use the expression, "%$^& me!" in almost every sentence. I wanted to smack her, strangle her, or both.

    In conclusion, Von Ziegesar's novel can either make you yearn to be one of the members of the GG gang or feel sorry for them. Their parents are self-centered and don't care at all for the well-being of their children. These spoiled Manhattanites are permitted do do whatever they want, whenever they want, as long as they keep up their appearances up so that it doesn't reflect badly on the family. No matter what, however, this novel is entertaining and an ideal addition to the GG series.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great book!
    I really love this book. Being 17, being their age, really makes it a lot more enjoyable to read. I even suggested this book to my 14 year old cousin! It truly is a pretty accurate representation of teens today, even though these teens are uber-rich, super cool, trendy, and did I mention rich? I love the interesting, dynamic people (even though Serena is pretty shallow, I still think she'd make a pretty awesome best friend), and I like the way the author balanced the super rich kids (Blair, Serena, Nate, etc.) with the kids that live in their world, but live in it rather on the outskirts (Dan, Vanessa, etc.) I loved this book so much, I couldn't resist buying the newest Gossip Girl (number 5!) a few days after it was released. Super read, pure fun, great beach/teen fiction!

    5-0 out of 5 stars addictive
    these books are so addictive! i read them in one sitting (usually becuase i cant tear myself away from them) i suggest if you want to read one, get the other ones because you will want to read those ones too!
    i am so pissed that lindsey lohan is playing blair in the gossip girl movie. i just dont see her as that part at all. shes a little too---immature, i guess. i mean shes a good actress but she just doesnt fit the part. i think that someone like samarie armstrong of rachel leigh cook should play her. it will probably be rated like PG even though the books are more PG-13-R.
    ANYWAY i really reccommend these books to everyone they are light easy addictive funny and amusing. Have fun!

    5-0 out of 5 stars This Chicken Soup Book Warmed my Soul!
    Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul: Journal, was one of the most moving books I have read. It's directed towards adolescents, and deals with issues every adolescent girl faces. It's a blend of stories, quotes, poems, and spaces to write your thoughts. This book has many different sections such as: family, love and kindness, learning lessons, and though stuff. My favorite section, however, is "loving yourself". This book gave me a chance to deal with issues and see that I'm not the only girl whom faces such issues. Chicken Soup is a book that I am able to pick up at any time if I need some inspiration on a situation, or some reassurance. Other issues helpful to me were on drinking, self-esteem, eating disorders, and how to deal with my past. The best part about this book is that a lot of it is compiled with texts written by teenage authors. There are spaces for friends to write about you, and spaces for you to express how you feel about certain things. Chicken Soup allowed me to realize I was not the only girl who had experienced some of the feelings that I did. After reading this book I knew I wasn't alone! I do highly reccomend this book to any teenage girl. Adolescence is a hard time to get through, and many girls need inspiration. You do not have to read the book cover to cover; you can pick it up any time and read whatever section you desire.

    5-0 out of 5 stars This is a great book!
    my mom bought me this a few christmas's ago. I wasnt really a diary type person so I figured I wouldnt like it. But one day when I was bored, I opened it up and looked and realized what I had been missing. this is definitly a great book for teenagers. Its not just a blank journal, it gives you lots of interesting ideas to write about and asks questions that make you think. I love writing in it if I'm bored. And it's big so it wont get used up fast. Also, even though there are sections, you dont have to do each one in order, you can just skip around if you want. the sections are similar to the ones in the chicken soup for the teenage soul books. and for some of the questions, they give alot of space to just write whatever you want. I especially liked the section where your friends, boyfriend, etc. could write to you and the part where you can put your pictures. I highly recommend this journal! its great! I hope they come out with a second one

    This book has just about every question you can image asking yourself. I am 20 now and I got this book maybe 4 years ago. I filled up every line and space. It would make a great gift for a teenager, but would probably be more appreciated by the teenage girl in your life. Very helpful for bad days...good days...dream jotting. Well worth the money! ...
