In Gossip Girl: Psycho Killer, the Upper East Side turns into a bloodbath. Literally. So, what makes the book’s author Cecily von Ziegesar think her original Gossip Girl characters have psycho killer potential? Read on for Cecily’s take on what makes Blair (as always) a person of interest.
The bitches are back, and now they’ve got knives…! I know what you’re thinking—Gossip Girl Psycho Killer? Is this real? Well, I’m here to tell you that it’s real, I wrote it, it’s very funny, and I love it. Hope you will too.
Could B be a psycho killer? Actually, it’s not that hard to believe…
a) She has closets full of pretty coats with deep pockets, good for concealing weapons and bloodstains.
b) She’s small and can therefore hide in closets, behind skinny trees, and on the floor of taxis.
c) She seems to know where everyone is at all times before they even get there.
d) She has a terrible temper.
e) Her maid is loyal and very thorough, thus dead bodies are not an issue.
f) She’ll do anything to get into Yale.
Inside the heart of every super-competitive private school girl is a cold-blooded killer. If people began to disappear from the Upper East Side, I’d have no trouble pinning it on B. Would you?
