Synopsis by Barnes and Noble:
Welcome to The A-List, a wickedly funny and risqué paperback original novel that takes readers behind the scenes of the intoxicating world of Hollywood glitterati. Seventeen-year-old Upper East Side blueblood Anna ("pronounced Aaaanah") Percy is on her way to Beverly Hills, California, where she'll live with her estranged dad for the rest of the school year while her mother travels to Europe with a friend. On the plane, Anna drinks too much champagne and gets hit on by record producer Rick Resnick. Luckily Princeton student Ben Birnbaum is there to save her and he invites Anna to famous actor Jackson Sharpe's wedding, where Anna meets the cast of rich and famous characters who are soon to be her classmates at Beverly Hills High.
The fast times of Beverly Hill's most beautiful and glamorous people drive the page-turning action of this juicy new novel.
My Thoughts:
I took a break from my New York drama and came back to the west coast in this book. This was another book that I never planned on reading but I must say I am glad I did. The story has the same sort of a feeling as Gossip girl, but it is completelydifferent and entertaining in it's own way. The story is fun, flirty, and enthralling. I loved the new setting of Beverley Hills. I also enjoyed the characters in this book. Anna was smart, which was an amazing change. She had a good head on her shoulders. I am excited to continue on in this series. I find it entertaining and again am sucked into the lives of these characters!!
Recommendation: Anyone who enjoyed gossip girl!
