However, all It Girl fans will have to buy this book - just because we want to be ready for the 6th book.
Also... I don't like the cover. But now I'm just being picky.
So when we return to Waverly, Dean Marymount is beginning an investigation as to who was guilty - and he eventually comes up with a hit list of students.
During all this stress, there are prospective students shadowing them and being charming and annoying in equal measures. Heath has a mini-me following him around - which is just what Waverly needs, right? The girls are passing around their own prospective from person to person as they try and each get some time alone with their favorite male Owl.
When Marymount releases his short list of suspects, Heath decides to throw a party for the Usual Suspects - isn't that the best response to possible expulsion? Somebody has to take the rap for this. Will it be Jenny? Everyone is plotting to see her go. Callie, who was smoking with Easy in the barn? Julian, whose lighter was found on the scene? Tinsley, the actual guilty party? Or one of the other names on the list?
The series seems to be really picking up. I didn't care for the first few very much, but they are addictive enough I keep reading. The fourth and now this one seem to be taking off, and the characters are developing nicely.
A who-done-it mystery about a fire has been over-done and over used in teen books and tv shows throughout the years. If it truly was an arson-why were the police not handling the investigation? It was not on school property, it was on private property-so why the Dean has the ability to decide who the suspects were and punish the culprit with expulsion and not prosecution did not add up. Not one of the privileged pupils at Waverly called their parents to step in with the family attorney (as students of status often have) as soon as they were named as a suspect. The ending a la Big Brother was predictable, and again, with a crime as serious as arson-why were the proper authorities not involved and why was such a silly tactic used to attempt to finger the suspect?
I suppose the "big twist" is at the end and will continue in the next book. While I enjoy the exotic (but slightly tacky) fantasy world that Gossip Girl transports you to- this novel did nothing for me.
