GOSSIP GIRL, VOL. 1: FOR YOUR EYES ONLY
Baek is the perfect artist to bring the gossip girls to life! The visual pizzazz and vibrancy are memorable. With this first book in a series, Baek sets up new Gossip Girl adventures.
It’s Blair’s birthday party and Vanessa shows up — uninvited. The girls used to be best friends, now Blair doesn’t want to have anything to do with Vanessa, and lets her vindictiveness loose. Neither of them are prepared for what life will show them about each other when they become stuck together in a very memorable set of scenes. Though it has occasional flashes of adulthood, this is a trip down high school lane with all of its partying and discomfort. (YEN PRESS, Aug., 240 pp., $12.99, Manga, ISBN: 9780759530263)
