Inside OutEdit

Inside Out is the tell-all novel and exposé chronicling the lives of the Upper East Siders by Daniel Humphrey. While Dan's first novel, Inside, was fiction, Inside Out is basically a retelling of those same events using real names, detailing what actually happened behind the scenes. As he could not find a publisher willing to buy the work unedited and in its entirety, Dan resorted to having Inside Out published in The New York Spectator before reaching a deal with Vanity Fair. However, the book's final chapters, as well as the reveal of Gossip Girl's true identity, were once again published in The Spectator.

Film adaptionEdit
