    1. Did you feel that the book fulfilled your expectations? Were you disappointed?The book definitely fulfilled my expectations. Each chapter had an interesting moment in it. At times I was shocked with some of their decisions that the characters made, like when Callie broke up with the boy she was in love with. I didn’t see that coming but the book was absolutely worth the read.2. Did you enjoy the book? Why, Why not?I really enjoyed the book because there was never a dull moment, each sentence was exciting. Each book I’ve read from the “it girl series” never disappointed me, this one definitely didn’t either.3. How did the book compare to other books by the author (or other books in the same genre)?All the “it girl books” are very good. This one was definitely one of the better books because it had more of an interesting plot. In this book, “Waverly” is on thanksgiving break so everyone leaves, while in the other books the setting is usually always at school.4. What about the plot? Did it pull you in; or did you feel you had to force yourself to read the book?The plot was definitely more captivating than some of the other books because the stories main setting is in New York City, which is a very wild city. Whenever I started reading I didn’t want to put the book down.5. Were the characters realistic? Would you want to meet any of the characters? Did you like them? Hate them?If I could get the chance I’d like to meet all the main characters because, they all have different backgrounds, and personalities. The way the author described them was just so detailed. At times, the characters did things that were selfish and rude.6. Did the actions of the characters seem plausible? Why? Why not?A lot of the actions weren’t plausible. At one point Sleigh was at the park and she just started playing with these twins and gave them food. Usually parents wouldn’t mind if you asked but Sleigh didn’t even ask. Another time was when Easy had asked Callie to meet him at the top of the Empire State Building. In the letter he wrote it read “I promised that I’d see you again, so meet me at the top of the Empire State Building at 6 o’clock. Things like that don’t happen.7. How would the book have been different if it had taken place in a different time or place?If the student of Waverly hadn’t left the school for thanks giving break the book would have been completely different. “There’s nothing like spending the weekend in New York and getting away from Waverly”, Jenny said. That clearly shows she was exited to get away from Waverly. New York is a party city so things definitely would have been different. Yvonne wouldn’t have had the party, Callie wouldn’t have dumped Easy, Tinsley wouldn’t have gotten a second chance from Julian and Jenny wouldn’t have met Casey. 8. What are some of the book’s themes? How important were they?I think the biggest theme in the story was friendship. “I’m so happy we became friends”. Jenny, Callie and Tinsley were enemies throughout the other books but they got over it. The theme friendship was an important theme because almost every girl in Waverly would pick their boyfriends over their friends or believe any little rumour they heard. Jenny, Callie and Tinsley put all the rumours fights and boys behind and became very close. 9. How are the books images symbolically significant? Do the images help to develop the plot, or help to define characters?In one part of the book, Callie found a letter that Easy had written her “if you’ve gotten this, I’m probably at military school and can’t get a word out, with this letter is a promise ring. I promise I’ll see you soon”. That symbolizes Easy’s love for Callie.10. Did the book end the way you expected?I did think that the book would have ended differently. “Whoa, dude is it true you hooked up with the Dunderdorf twins?” The way the book was going it didn’t look like Brandon wouldn’t have hooked up with Helga. Also I thought that Sleigh would have for she ruined Tinsley’s chores with Julian, but that didn’t happen either.11. Would you recommend this book to other readers? To your close friends? I would recommend this book series to my girl friends because it’s very girly. It’s all about shopping, boys, friendship and gossip. Not that my guy friends wouldn’t like the books, I just think it’s more appropriate for girls. 12. If you were casting these characters in a movie, what actors/ actresses would play them?If I was casting these characters in a movie Tinsley would be a played by Meagan fox because they are both admired by boys and are very beautiful. They both have long dark hair and remind me of each other. Callie would be played by Blake Lively because they are both tall, blonde, very slim and very pretty. Jenny would be played by Taylor Momsen because the “it girl” series is based sort of around gossip girl and gossip girl is Jenny is played by Taylor Momsen. Easy would be played by Brad Pitt because they are both scruffy looking yet very good looking. Easy’s personality reminds me of Brad’s behaviour in some of his movies. Julian would be played by Zac Efron because they both like sports and are more proper like polite and remind me of eachother. 13. What was your favourite part/scene of the book?My favourite park of the book was at the end when everyone was talking about their thanksgiving weekend. “Is it true you hooked up with the Dunderdorf twins?” “I just saw Tinsley curled up on the couch next to Julian” “Did you hear Callie and Easy broke up for good?” I liked the end because everyone was shocked that all these things happened over the break!

    As far as books go, this is certainly not a bad one. It's not too far out there on the unrealistic side, and I did like the fact that I read it thanksgiving weekend-and it's about thanksgiving weekend.I didn't like the whole switch-between-plots thing because my favorite plot was Brett and her family!Brett goes to a posh boarding school, and her father is a plastic surgeon and her mother is the queen of tacky new jersey. Brett misses her train and has to hitch a ride with a guy she tutors for extra credit. It turns out Seb (the guy she tutors) actually knew her before they went to boarding school. Sort of. So when Brett finds that her parents and sister went all preppy stuck-up to impress Brett's sister's boyfriend, Willy-Brett's just plain annoyed. They have covered up the tacky decorations and locked the chihuahuas in the laundry room. Brett's sister, Brianna, is no longer Bree-she is now Anna. Brett is ashamed of her family's tackiness, but loves them for it anyway-so she devises a plan. Let the chihuahuas out! Wear her tackiest clothes! Stain the couch covers! And invite Seb over-he's a junior jersey mafioso. Meanwhile, at Yvonne's blowout thanksgiving party, Tinsley, Callie, and Jenny figure out their priorities in love, and get a sense of where they are. This book really helped me understand the characters, although Seb is my favorite character and I wanted more about him!!!!

    I'm kind of over the are they, aren't they status of most of the couples the It Girl series keeps throwing together and then breaking apart. Callie and Easy are back on, but apart, and then... they aren't. One minute Callie's a little too into Easy and the next she's breaking up with him. Right. Of course. It's weird to transition from TV Jenny back to book Jenny, but book Jenny is still such a sweetheart that I don't mind the momentary whiplash. I'm hoping she gets to go back to maturing a little more than she did in Infamous.Bonus points for finding a bigger bitch than Tinsley, and the Heath/Brandon bonding was just the right amount of funny to keep the rest of the book on track.

    I wouldn't say this series is extremely good but there is something about it that just leaves me wanting to read more. In this installment, I believe it was the first time that the majority of the novel was based somewhere outside of Waverly Academy. As well, the story was surrounding Thanksgiving. I found the read pretty decent with descriptions and some of the characters are quite humorous in the way they act.

    This book is okay. I read ALL the books before this one and used to bet into it all the time, and it's okay, but it's kind of boring!(:

    I love everything Cecily, but this is the worst book out of all. Here's why:1.Sage. She has a guy, who would basically do anything for her and she dumps him? Sorry for not spanking your ass Sage, but if you want something from him - talk to the guy, he would do anything for you.2.Most chill parents. Jenny tells her over-protective dad she would be staying at a hotel, yeah cool. Tinsley gets dumped by her parents last minute. Um, phone calls? Callie just calls to say she's not coming for Thanksgiving and it's okay. And all the other parents of the characters seem to be okay with their kids not being with them on Thanksgiving. Besides, did anyone noticed none of the parents called on Thanksgiving?3.Yvonne. This nerdy unpopular girl throws a party, everyone shows up and everyone magically happens to be in New York. Also, how did her parents allow her to stay there on a family holiday? Personally, to me the whole sleepover weekend was too sugary, too fluffy and too cheesy. That's not The Sleepover Club. It was kind of unrealistic to have everyone stay at one apartment at a girl, who they don't like.4.Tinsley/Julian/Sleigh. Starting off with Julian, he is super annoying. If he really was into Tinsley, he would've liked her because of her bitchy side or despite it. Then even though he judges Tinsley for her games, he plays one the whole weekend. He was just testing to see how she would act around Sleigh, um yeah, sure Cecily. And then she snaps at one little thing and he is like 'I see it now, she is the biggest bitch'. Then Tinsley is ready to change herself for some guy, who is just described as with a great body and gorgeous. Okay, Tinsley, if you are that pathetic. And it's weird how at one small thing Sleigh breaks her 'cover' and disappears. If she really hates Tinsley that much, she would've held herself when Julian told her about him and Tinsley, or would've found a way to get back in the game. But I was really disappointed in Tinsley and found Julian really, really, really annoying.5.Brett. She is the character I am least irritated with, but... I do understand where she is coming from and did enjoy her irritating the Coopers, but Sebastian...Couldn't she just texted asking him for help? Or when Bree caught her alone, just don't admit? Like, I didn't invite Sebastian to irritate you, or something like that. A plan as carefully thought out, wouldn't be blown away just like that.6.EVERY.FREAKING.GUY.IS.GORGEOUS.AND.HOT. Cecily I go to a private school and most guys still don't have abs and are not that good looking. It is impossible for every single guy in this book to be handsome and have abs. 7.Callie. Ugh, Callie, Callie, Callie. So she whines about Easy, plans their wedding, then loses her ring and because she didn't spend 10 hours thinking about the ring dumps Easy. Then at the end she says, she wasn't ready for something serious. Girl, if it was open and you had the time, you would've stopped at Vera Wang to pick a gown. And wear it to the ESB. 8.No Gossip Girl reunion? We did see Rufus, but was it so hard to add Dan or Vanessa? Just for one scene? Dan leaving because of the craziness in the apartment, or Vanessa taking a late flight/train/cab to whatever boring place she was because of Rufus' guests? And how it is possible for Jenny not to run into somebody from the original characters? Look down the window and see Serena passing by? Or run into Blair somewhere outside. Or maybe just a hint at seeing some of them? It was a shame.9. Know your limits, guys. Brendon could've just said no thanks, I'm pretty buzzed by now, or something like that. Although Brendon and Heath's story is the only one I did not find annoying and I wasn't screaming at how stupid they were.10.Jenny. Jenny runs from a guy to guy. She changes the love of her life faster than Taylor Swift her boyfriends (I'm a Swiftie, I'm allowed to make this joke). Most of all she is really annoying. And Jenny, if a college dude is texting you that you could stop by his school someday, it's a bootycall. And Jenny, you are generally annoying.10.Their stomaches were growling all the time. EAT PEOPLE! It's not TV, you are allowed to eat here because the public won't see if you gain weight. And Tinsley, eat your croissants by yourself. Why would you want to treat that bitch to something sweet? And you so don't deserve Julian. I had to read 100 pages by the end this morning. I thought I was going to finish it tomorrow, but when I realized this was the worst book in the series so far, I got motivated to finish it to write a bad review.

    Infamous2008 little, Brown and Company NY Bostonpgs.240 $10.99Cecily von ZiegesarISBN: 9780318025072Thanksgiving day is a day where you spend time with your family and the people you are thankful for. But in Waverly Academy, most people would be spending time with their friends, and the rest would spend time with their families member. Infamous is the seventh book of the It Girl series. Cecily von Ziegesar used many great vocabularies such as, reupholstered. She described each scene very well, leaving you reading the book non-stopping. In the previous book, Tempted Jenny almost got expell from the Waverly Academy by Tinsley and Callie, but a boy rescued her. But in Infamous, Tinsley and Jenny are like best friends forever, no one in Waverly Academy belives this. As for Callie she is still waiting for her prince charming to come and save her. Easy was expelled from Waverly Academy, and now is attending a military school. Will a promise ring save Callie and Easy's relationship? Or not? Brett Messerschmidt lost everything, now for Thanksgiving she has to spend time with her family in Jersey McMansion. Spending time with her family on Thanksgiving day is the very last thing on her list to do. I really enjoyed reading Infamous, because it's very interesting and you can learn a lot about relationship and friendship, if they are loyal to you or not. Do not skip the series to just read Infamous, if you don't start from the very first book of the series. I'll promise you that you'll be very clueless and will be lost.

    This was not my favorite installment in this series. Yes, it got me through a transcontinental flight, but on the whole, it was a bit dull. The whole each-book-only-gets-you-through-like-three-days thing is getting a bit ridiculous -- it's still only Thanksgiving of Jenny Humphrey's sophomore year of high school! In spite of all the drama they've had, time is moving at a crawl. In a weird way though, that almost makes the books truer to how high school is -- and particularly small, private high schools. People are so intimately involved in each other's day-to-day lives, that every little incident and entanglement is blown out of proportion and probably could generate 100 pages' worth of material. That said, do I want to read every piece of minutiae? Possibly not. Overall, the most entertaining plot in this book is the one with Brett, which is truly enjoyable if predictable; the one with Heath and Brandon (which is the most far-fetched) is probably the most disappointing.

    Infamous was part of the It Girl Series, this one including several old stories -and characters-coming back and meeting each other. Brett goes to New Jersey for Thanksgiving break, while Brandon and Heath stay at Waverly (the boarding school) to search for the "Swiss Misses", a school legend. Tinsley, Callie, and Jenny go to New York (Jenny lives there, Callie is vacationing there, and Tinsley lives there part-time) but instead of sleeping over at Jenny's Upper West Side apartment, the girls "crash" or stay at Yvonne Stidder's apartment while her parents are away. It's all about old characters being drawn out, new fights, and old relationships. Some relationships/ friendships are rekindeled or re-newed while others are put to the test. Very good book.

    As the series goes on, I think that the books just keep getting better because there is so much character development. If I were to cast people to make the book a film I would cast Taylor Momsen as Jenny Humphrey. The reason being is that the Gossip Girl series is a TV series also, and the author of the Gossip Girl series pulled Jenny out and made a whole series about her life, not on TV. So Jenny Humphrey needs to stay as Jenny Humphrey you know? Then for Tinsley I would have Vanessa Hudgens, just because I feel like she has the type of poker face that you never know what she is thinking. Easy would be Chad Michael Murray because he is gorgeous and in the book Easy is gorgeous to everyone. Callie I think would be Anna Sophia Robb because she is so pretty and innocent.

    This book is the 7th book of the It Girl series. It's Thanksgiving break at Waverly and everyone is getting ready for an interesting weekend. Callie, Tinsley, and Jenny are off to New York and they are partying! They thought they'll have a cozy dinner and family time with their families but change of plans! Callie is excited seeing Easy again, Tinsley's mission is to win Julian again, and Jenny's mission is not to fall in love again. Brett has a new mission caught up on her own in her house. Brandon is trying to get over his break up with Sage, and is willing to date his teacher's daughter. This book takes exciting twists and turns. Thanksgiving break seems awfully fun. I loved this book! i can't wait for the next book and see what happens next.

    New friends Jenny Humphrey and Tinsley Carmichael are determined get Callie Vernon out of being upset- it's been weeks since her boyfriend Easy Walsh was kicked out of school, and they're sick of her moping. They go to Yvonne Stidder's Thanksgiving party, during a snow storm in New York City. I can connect to Jenny, Callie and Tinsley because my Thanksgiving is always crazy. It is also really fun like theirs but definitley as much.I gave this book 3 stars because I thought that this series is getting a little to repetitive and boring. I am probably not going to read anymore of this series.

    This book is the seventh book of the It Girl series. I quite enjoyed the book. When I first started this one, I thought it was really boring, but as I reached the middle of the book, it started getting really interesting. As a result, overall, I like the book and looking forward to reading the eighth book of this It Girl series. I think many teenagers, specifically girls can relate to this book because the main characters are girls and they deal with problems in relation to friends, significant others, as well as family members. I would recommend this book as well as the It Girl series.

    This book was super-fun. It's just such a great read when you want to feel good about yourself and you kind of get sucked in with Callie, Tinsley, and Jenny having crazy adventures in the streets of New York. Brett's Thanksgiving in New Jersey is really entertaining, especially with the whole scheme using Sebastian to get rid of her sister's boyfriend's uptight, snobby parents. If you're looking for something light and funny, this book is definately for you!

    I'll put this in the juicy bitch book category. It's when you have a bunch of power- and boy-hungry, shallow, rich girls who turn on each other and start wars constantly in the petty setting of a high school. It's pretty juicy and relatively fast-paced. Surprisingly, some of the characters can be pretty likable when they own up to things and there are definitely some sincere moments between characters.

  • Nancy

    You do not read these books because you are interested in deep thoughts. You read these books because they are fun, and not too badly written, and in this particular case, because they pass the time before you're meeting people for dinner downtown. As far as these go, it's actually slightly better than usual, though, because there's a vaguely interesting (which is to say: not entirely love or hate) relationship between the main characters.

    It was good to take a break of all that school drama, even it still had 'boys problems'. I was sad for Callie. I am not used to Jenny and Tinsley's friendship, it's weird, I'm just waiting to some misunderstanding to them get back to be rivals (but I'm not sure if I want it).For a moment I thought that someone from Gossip Girl's series would appear.

    Everything seems better when the main characters aren't going against each other. I just wish Brett was with the other three girls, too. Things were starting to get interesting when Tinsley's former nemesis Sleigh showed up. I admit I liked Julian better with Jenny. But well, Tinsley actually seemed to like him a lot. Let's see how their relationship turns out in the next book.

    It was pretty boring up until the last 75 pages where things started to pick up with Tinsley and a secondary character. I just wished more things would happen between the two instead of having an abrupt ending. Everyone got their dream guy at some point. At this point I'm just trying to finish the series.

    This wasn't a good one for me in the series, as much as it needed to happen, I can't help but want all of the books to be set in the school. I suppose that's because I want as many characters shoved together as possible creating as much havoc that they can muster.

  • Jessica

    Didn't like this as good as some of the other books, but it was a quick, mindless read and that was what I needed at just that time. Had it not been for the fact that I was seeking a quick, mindless read, I would probably give this book a 2-star rating.

  • Sara W

    I prefer this series over the Gossip Girl series. This one has just as much hooking up and drinking, but there's a sweetness to this series that I don't recall the Gossip Girl series having. The characters seem to think about their actions more. I'm glad I stuck with it.

  • Jennifer
    2019-04-16 08:05

    Didn't love this one as much as the first few I read. Maybe at some point, the silly musings of high school kids get a little too much. Of course, it's a series for that age, so I shouldn't be surprised. I hope it doesn't end with this one, because it'd be a crappy place to end.

    This book was pretty good. It wasn't as exciting and upbeat as the others, but definitely a nice change of setting. By the way, ..Whoever wrote the description of the book, has got it wrong. The description is from "Tempted" (The book before this one).

    I have given up on Gossip Girl and it looks like this will be my last It Girl. I don't know if I am outgrowing the genre or just getting tired of the vapid characters. Jenny and her rich friends are stranded in New York during the Thanksgiving holidays.

    The girls are on holiday and some seem to be stranded. They have to find a fun place to stay that's at least warm in the middle of this blizzard. For others it the regular get together with the family that the dying to have but with an unsuspected addition that's making everyone act crazy.

    I liked it, I just thought it was a little pointless. It was just all about Thanksgiving.. But the relationship between Brett & Sebastian was really cute! I can't wait to read what happens in the next part!
