The It Girl: Devious by Cecily von Ziegesar

From Amazon: The ninth book in the New York Times bestselling IT GIRL series. Jenny Humphrey could have lost everything she'd worked so hard for when the reality show her adoring freshman fans were filming backfired on her in the most publicly humiliating way...but it meant she found out who her friends were - maybe Waverly is big enough for four IT girls?

Devious shakes things up for Jenny and Co., and after eight books, it's just what the series needed.

Isla and Isaac are two new characters introduced, and immediately make the whole of Waverly talk, gossip and speculate. While Isaac and Jenny hit it off, sister Isla befriends party girl Tinsley. They're both pretty unlikely pairings, and do nothing but stir up trouble in true It Girl style.

If i'm honest, I thought this series would be winding down and getting worse by now. Instead, it just gets better and better, and each book surprises me. They're the most fun reads, and although they aren't the most popular, they are, without a doubt, in my top five series. All this coming from someone who has no interest in clothes, brands or fashion -- if that doesn't give you an idea of how addictive this series is, I don't know what will!

It'll be a sad day when The It Girl is no more, but I'm hoping there are at least a couple of books to go. They're consistently entertaining and, at the end of the day, that's what a good book is all about.

I read four books of this series. Here, Brazil, they will publish the fifth in January, 2010. At least is what they say, but it's not like this always. These book delay too much to be released here. I want them. I've thought about buy them by Amazon, but is a little expensive. This series ROCKS!
