Fashion, music, glamour-and the wealthiest teenagers in New York City-collide in an edgy multicultural coming-of-age tale filled with the decadence and drama that make Gossip Girl so addictive The esteemed Walburton Academy on Manhattan's Upper West Side educates some of the most elite-and most hormonal-teens in the city. Kennedy and Reagan are twin sisters who are polar opposites except for their taste in boys. They ruthlessly compete with each other for the attention of the hunky newcomer, rapper Lucas Williams. Lean and luscious Madison Reynolds, meanwhile, is a top model living under the watchful eye of her domineering grandmother, the former grande dame of the fashion world. But it's not the photographers, agents, and designers that her grandmother has to worry about. It's the boys at school who are the real predators, like überrich party animal Ian Reinhardt and former child star Peyton Granger. When these privileged students are thrown together under one roof, in one crazy city, anything can-and does-happen. . . .
