Classic is the tenth and final novel in the It Girl series, and is a great end to what is definitely one of my all-time favourite series. There's all the usual drama I've become accustomed to, as well as brilliantly funny dialogue (Heath Ferro should be immortalised forever), new scandals and a look at the many Waverly relationships.
Classic sees Jenny Humphrey's last semester of her first year at Waverly, and as usual nothing runs smoothly. Valentine's Day brings brings with a whole host of stress amongst the students, thanks to the school's 'Perfect Match' survey. People are partnered with who the computer thinks is their perfect match, and though some people are happy, others are miffed by who they're supposed to be with. As you can imagine, this creates some serious havoc for the Waverly girls, and I loved every page of it.
Relationships, both romantic and platonic, are tested in Classic, which is par for the course when it comes to Jenny and her super-hot, super-rich friends. Tinsley and Brett devise a diabolical plan to take down a fellow student, Callie is stuck in the middle of the most frustrating love triangle with Easy and Brandon, and Jenny finds out just what it's like to be lied to. Honestly, if I were any of these girls, I would have upped and moved by now, probably to a convent somewhere. How they've stuck through 10 books of tumultuous relationships, bitch fights and drug-induced clinches is beyond me, but somehow they have. Well done, girls - you made it through the year!
I'm sad this series has now finished, and I'm really going to miss it. It's in no way a literary classic, but I absolutely love it. It's like Gossip Girl but better, and I think it's quite unusual for a spin-off series to outshine its source. It Girl has, though, and kudos to Ziegesar's ghost writer. Whoever you are, you've managed to entertain me for 10 books, and for that I thank you.
with valentines day approaching everyone is looking forward to some partying as they have been under house arrest after the infamous "party" and everybody is excited for Perfect Match. Relationships are tested and rocked but whats meant to be will be. after reading the book which is set in Feb the epilogue set in late may with all the girls packing to go home for summer is seems like this is last in series and thats diappointing but hopefully some new will arrive!
I am a fan of all the it girl books, ive read them religiously and always brought them as soon as they were released. this is the last in the series, and i cant help but feeling it was a bit rushed. the books length is fairly short compared to the other books. the characters just seem to sail into the sunset...i cant help but true it girl fashion would to have let the underdog stay the underdog whilst the queen bee grows even more powerful....
