Only a couple of the people I follow on Goodreads have read this one so far, but they both absolutely loved it. It’s being marketed for fans of Gossip Girl, which has me cautiously intrigued. A TV show is already in development and the book isn’t even out yet, so I definitely need to get my hands on this ASAP.
