Cecily vonZiegesar launched a set of bestsellers with the publication of Gossip Girl—a fictionally light look into the world of New York City’s richest, most beautiful teens. Each book in the series is an instant hit upon publication. The eighth installment is aptly titled, “Nothing Can Keep Us Together.” Graduation is around the corner. Lifelong friendships were tested in Nobody does It Better. What does the future hold?
The author tempts and teases readers with two love triangles. Blair must deal with the fling between her former best friend Serena and ex boyfriend Nate. Popular oddball Vanessa also juggles romps with Aaron and Dan.
Jenny the freshman, who stole the spotlight in #7 with her party girl antics, has several scenes in this book as well. She’s shopping boarding schools after being kicked out of Constance Ballard prep school. Jenny fans will be happy to know she’s now the It Girl in her own series by vonZiegesar.
Nothing Can Keep Us Together is one of the better books in the Gossip Girl series. Senior year is winding down and the individual fates of our favorite characters are unknown. Some are heading off to college; others want to experience life outside of school. VonZiegesar leaves readers with plenty of questions and (thankfully) the promise of a ninth Gossip Girl book.
