Yen Press has announced it will adapt the popular New York Times bestseller Gossip Girl into a manga series.  The monthly series will follow the lives of girls at an elite New York City private school beginning in January 2010.

Kurt Hassler, Publishing Director of Yen Press says:  “There are few series in the publishing world that have been as impactful or successful as Cecily von Ziegesar’s GOSSIP GIRL.  The novels have captured the imaginations of young women around the world, and we look forward to demonstrating with GOSSIP GIRL: FOR YOUR EYES ONLY that graphic novels as a medium can be just as welcoming to girls as it is to boys.”

Currently, there are 13 Gossip Girl books, as well as the CW television series.
