At the beginning of the book Rhys is still pathetic, Baby is searching for herself, Avery wants to find her place in NYC, Owen has the girl but lost his best friendand Jack is still a snob. But as the...
book goes on each of the characters has a epiphany about there lives. Towards the end of the book I started to like Jack. I think she is starting to learn what matters to her in life and what she really wants as are the rest of the group. Even though the new group is not as entertaining as the old group, there are some interesting stories. I cannot wait to see what happens next.
In the third installment of Gossip Girl: The Carlyles, things continue heating up on the Upper East Side and these new scandalous teenagers just won’t quit. Everything has been up in flames since the arrival of The Carlyle triplets and Take A Chance on Me is quite possibly the best in this spin off and dishes us a hefty helping of drama, betrayal, romance and power struggles.
Say hello to your next best beach read, ladies and gentlemen. Although this next generation of kids don’t quite reach the level of awesomeness that our original group did, this installment certainly takes things to a whole new level and is classic Gossip Girl. It’s stylish, witty, light and will have you glued to the pages until the final chapter.
As for the kids…

Now that he is friendless and in a relationship, Owen begins to have second thoughts. Kelsey doesn’t seem to ever want to just talk to him and after Rhys quits the team; he becomes captain to a group of guys who seemed to have picked sides.
