A great read, 4 April 2008
'It had to be you' is the fantastic prequel to the Gossip Girl book series from Cecily Von Ziegesar. The book goes back to the Summer before the original series began, concentrating on the original love-triangle of Blair, Serena and Nate - and also on the lives of Dan, Jenny and Chuck.
This book is a great read and opens up the door to the original relationships between the characters, back when they were a few years younger. It's funny, riveting and a great read for the older teenager-young adult reading group. Cecily's writing is genius, and even though she's writing about this preppy, annoying, rich-kid, spoilt group, it's just fascinating to read and you'll be unable to put it down.
