Shortly after Manhattan’s famous It Girl, Serena Van Der Woodsen, returns from her ‘boarding school’, the police discover the body of Alison DiLaurentis exactly a year after her disappearance. Ever since, rumors have been speculating about the connection. Serena’s been under investigation by the police, along with the four girls that were Ali’s best friends: Aria Montgomery, Spencer Hastings, Emily Fields, and Hanna Marin. To top it off, there has been a secret swap between two identical twins: Emma and Sutton.
It’s no secret that Sutton Mercer is adopted, but the fact that she has a secret twin named Emma Becker and that she’s switching places with her to search for Becky (their mother?) definitely is. Emma Becker, who is no actress, has never seen such jewels and diamonds and is suddenly thrown into the hectic life of a socialist. Now, she’s expected to act like a bitch, and befriend all those other It Girls that attend the Constance Billard School for Girls: Serena Van Der Woodsen, Blair Waldorf, Hanna Marin, Charlotte Chamberlin and Madeline Rybak, the preppy jocks of St. Judes, while making sure that her family - especially her “sister” Laurel, doesn’t suspect a thing.
Once these dirty little secrets get out, lives will be turned around. People will get hurt, arrested even, which is why all of these socialites are doing everything in their power to make sure no one says a single word. But when there’s a determined stalker like -A, constantly following you around for nothing but the pleasure of revenge and ruining your life, you’ll soon discover that it’s not that easy to keep your mouth shut.
To make matters worse, a new anonymous blogger comes up on the scene with the alias Gossip Girl. And while Gossip Girl isn’t -A, and has no affiliation with -A, they have the same motives: ruin your life.
Are you ready to join the dramatic, backstabbing, power-struggling lives of the Elites?
