Anna Percy finds no comfort in her designer clothes when her longtime secret crush falls hard for someone else --- her best friend, in fact. The only thing standing between Anna and the end of high school is an internship at a literary journal, and she couldn't be happier to get away from that scene.
When the internship falls through too, Anna jets out to L.A. to live with her father, hoping to find an internship at an entertainment agency. She's totally ready to break out of the boring East Coast prep life she's been stuck in.
Her adventures begin on the plane, where the fabulous Ben spares her from a lounge lizard seatmate. Upon landing, they have plans to go to a Hollywood wedding that night! But even in the land of eternal sunshine, Anna is experiencing some problems. Her father keeps blowing her off and Ben's old female friends, the A-List, are like a coven of witches. Everything she was looking forward to in her new life slips away and Anna is left wondering how to start over.
THE A-LIST will not disappoint GOSSIP GIRL fans; in fact, they will eat it up! Zoey Dean has crafted a plot that is filled with surprises and humor, and Anna is a three-dimensional girl whom readers will sympathize with --- even as they fantasize about her lifestyle.
