It Had to Be You is the prequel to the original Gossip Girl novel series by Cecily von Ziegesar.


The story of the It Had To Be You: The Gossip Girl Prequel focuses on characters lives before the events of Gossip Girl the television and book series. The book also contains notes from the author detailing ideas for the characters she later scrapped. For instance, series protagonist Blair Aldorf was originally an African American teen from Harlem named Roni Martin, and Chuck Bass, the series' bad boy, was originally a professional rhythm gymnast named Chip Wiskers. These characters were reportedly more closely based on people in Cecily von Ziegesar's real life, and were changed in the final draft to avoid potential lawsuit.
