" I have to tell you something, Blair." Nate's voice shaking. "There's something important I've been keeping from you." " I didn't get my diploma," Nate blurted in a rush, as if hoping she might not catch the words. " I have to repeat senior year at St.Jude's." (page 125)

This quote is important because this is when Nate finally decides to tell Blair that he did not get his diploma from highschool so he will not be able to go off to Yale with her and Serena in a few short days. Blair is so mad that she just dosnt know what to do so she throughs something at Nates head. Nate decideds it would be best to leave Blair alone untill she calms down a bit and so he decideds to go and talk to Serena. Nate thought that Blair may have already told Serena about him not getting his diploma but she hadn't. When Nate gets to Serenas house she was going through more pictures for the going away party slide show. She then decides that this would be a good time for her to ask Nate about the love letter that she had wrote him because she was still wondering if he had ever got it. After he said that he had not gotten the letter he asks her what it had said and she told him that she loved him. It took off from there and they ended up sleeping together. Not only for the first time eather but for the second. Nate then tells Serena about how he is not going to be able to go to Yale with Blair and her. Serena then tells Nate about the offer she had gotten from her movie producer. Her first movie had just came out and her boss already has about 3 more movies lined up for her. Serena herself is now debating wether or not she should go to Yale and get a college education or if she should stay in New York and become a famous actress.

Don't forget about me- A gossip girl novel. week 2 post B

" Nate stared at him, openmouthed. He'd never really considered that not getting his diploma would mean he'd actually have to repeat senior year. Maybe take a year off, do some "community service" building outhouses on a beach in Costa Rica or something , but another year of high school? Taking the same boring classes, doing the same boring things, while his friends were all off at college, having fun without him?" (page 54)

In the same chapter as this quote Nate has gone home for the first time sence his trip out on the sea with Blair. When Nate was soposed to graduate from highschool he stole something from his principal so the principal did not allow him to. When Nate left for his trip he was the only one who knew that he had not gotten his diploma so he was nervious that his dad now knew... and he did. His dad was a Captain in the navy and he threatend Nate that he was going to make him go and deal with Captian Chips White who worked with his dad on the ship. Soposedly hes really harsh and mean. Blair and Serena still think that Nate is going off to Yale with them in a few short weeks. So Nate is trying to decide how hes going to tell them that now there all going to be seperated offically for the first time in forever. Not only does Nate have to find out how to tell Serena and Blair he now has to come up and think of a way to some how be able to go to school in a few weeks. Sence these familys are all very wealthy he will probley just try to pay off every one he can including the principal and some how encourage him to give him his diploma. The other main point in this section is that one of the boys that Nate, Blair, and Serena have gone to school with for a very long time has just come out and said that hes gay. This guys name is Dan who just happens to be one of Serenas ex-boyfriends. Dans mom couldent be more excited about the whole thing so she decided to send out an e-mail to his entire graduated class and she invites them all to a suprize party for his coming out.

" Oh my God, you have to burn this one!" Serena held out a picture of her first-grade self in a fuzzy alligator costume and dug her feet into the butter-soft forset green Pratesi sheets covering Nate's bed. (page 77)

In this quote Nate and Serena are going through old pictures for Blairs suprise slide show thats going to be playing at her going away party. Blairs mom asked the two of them to go through and pick pictures to put in the slide show sence they have been best friends for ever and she thinks it would be more special for them to do it.

"So," Serena started agian, focusing her gaze on the gray Abercrombie T-shirt Nate had had for as long as she could remember- anything to avoid looking up into his glittering green eyes. She shuffled her flip-flops against the floor and steeled herself for the queshton she knew she had to ask, no matter how much the answer hurt." (page 37)

This quote is one of the most important in the book. Serena, Blair, and Nate have all been best friends ever sence they can remember. They have been through the best and worse of times with eachother and no matter how many fights they have gotten in they have always come out strong and as one. Before Blair and Nate left for there one month trip out on the ocean blue Serena had written a love letter to Nate letting him know that she liked him. Little did Serena know Blair had found the letter before Nate in Nates car. When Blair and Nate had gotten home from their trip Serena was at Blairs house helping her mom plan a suprise going away party for Blair and her step brother Aaron. When Blair and her mom were talking in the other room Serena and Nate got to catch up on their summer ( or the past month). Its at this time when the quote from above comes in and the queston that Serena is wanting to ask Nate is if he ever got her letter but then he inturrups her and she never gets around to asking him if he had ever recived the letter.

"Well, don't you look happy?" He wrapped his arms around her tiny waist, burying his face in her dark, windblown hair. "You even smell nice, for once."
Blair squealed as he began to tickle her, squirming away.
" Thanks a alot!"
Nate just grinned as he slid his feet into the black worn Teva flip-flops he'd worn every day at sea.

This quote basically sums up Blair and Nates realtion ship. They had just gotten off the yaht they had been on together for the past month just the two of them. They are now more then ever in love and are even closer then before. Blair and Nate have been together sence they were just little kids and now are headed off to college for the first time ever in just a few short days.

A Piece of Cake FINAL! FINALLY!

In the last section of my book Cupcake is in rehab trying as hard as possible to get clean. She is doing every thing she is told to do by the staff. But she had ended up having a relapse when she was about 20 days into a 30 day get sober program. She then called the leader of the groups that she went to at the rehab center , her name is V, and V told her to come in the next day and to attend the class. Here at these classes is where she meet Brett. They started dateing and then they got engaged. But while Cupcake was getting better Brett was getting worse it was hard for Cupcake to try and stay sober when majority of the time Brett was not. So after two years of being sober Cupcake ended her engagement with Brett who she said " was the best man I ever had". After Cupcake was sure that she was clean she decided to go to school. She applied to SDSU and got in! And she thought things couldent get better untill just a few years later she had decided she wanted to become a lawyer. Now Cupcake Brown is part of one of the nations largest law firms and is a resident of San Francisco. At the end of the book Cupcake sends out all of her thank yous to the people who have helped her along the way and shows the people that always doubted her how wrong they were.
