Unforgettable: It Girl Series #4-Cecily von Ziegesar @ 7:33 AM
Having a roommate at elite Waverly Academy means nightly sleepovers and double the designer wardrobe. But Callie Vernon never really liked late-night girl talk or swapping cashmere sweaters with her younger, rosy-cheeked roomie, Jenny Humphrey. So when Jenny stole her longtime boyfriend, Easy Walsh, Callie didn't feel that guilty about turning right around and kissing him behind Jenny's back. Okay, maybe a little guilty, but it certainly didn't stop her from enjoying it. Now, if only Easy would stop being so irritatingly indecisive and dump Jenny already!While the two roommates are sharing a boyfriend, the rest of Dumbarton's residents are sharing their feelings at the newly founded Women of Waverly club--aka, WOW! Everyone is totally bonding, revealing their most personal secrets, and hugging out their past rivalries. But despite the sharing-is-caring vibe, there are some things these girls aren't spilling--like who's making special late-night trips to the crater . . . and with whom.Now it's only a matter of time before all the newfound girl power explodes into a massive girl fight. But this battle goes well beyond the ivy colored brick walls of Dumberton--it's about who will be Waverly's next It Girl.
Description in one word: Drama-rific
I didn't necessarily have extremely high hopes for this book when I first picked it up, just because I figured it would be like all the other books in the series, but when I started reading, I realized that it wasn't similar in some ways. There was a lot of drama in the novel, so it always kept you on your toes, waiting to see what would happen. I felt like I could relate to a lot of the characters in the book, especially Jenny, even if they were written as high-society New Yorkers. I could really feel what she was feeling while reading the book, and I enjoyed that aspect of it.
The idea for this book is not very unique, but it had its own special flare that sets it apart from all the other books intended to be drama-filled. I enjoyed that Cecily von Ziegesar made the novel unique in her own way, adding different types of drama into the book, and keeping me reading until the end and then pushing me to go and get the next book in the series.
Unforgettable is a stunning novel that keeps you on your toes, and involves a series of complicated relationships. There's betrayal, love, pure anger, and happiness involved throughout the entire book. I would recommend reading this book if you enjoy the Gossip Girl series, The Clique series, or The A-List series, or are just looking for a quick, fun read. I would not recommend this to you if you do not enjoy predictable books that will keep you bored just because you know what will happen.
