Gossip Girl: It Had to Be You
The Gossip Girl Prequel
Welcome to New York City’s Upper East Side, where my friends and I live in luxe Fifth Avenue apartments and attend Manhattan’s most exclusive private schools. We’re smart, we’ve inherited classic good looks, we wear fantastic clothes, and we know how to party. We can’t help it-we were born this way.
Our story begins with three inseparable, completely gorgeous fifteen-year-olds, Serena van der Woodsen, Blair Waldorf, and Nate Archibald. Blair’s loved Nate and his glittering green eyes since she was in Bonpoint onesies. Too bad Nate wishes Blair’s beautiful best friend, Serena, was the one with the crush. And Serena has a secret she’s keeping from them both. Hmmm, something tells me these best friends may not be as close as we thought. . . .
How do I know all this? Because I know everything-and lucky for you, I can’t keep a secret. So sit back while I untangle this messy little tale and tell you how it all began.
Admit it, you’re already falling for me.
You know you love me.
