Anna, Ben, Sam, Cammie, Dee, and Adam made readers fall in love with THE A-LIST. Now it's time for those A-Listers to take a bow and the next generation to take the stage.

First there is Amelie Adams, the Hollywood starlet. Famous for her role as the Fairy Princess, Amelie has little girls screaming, asking for her autograph. Unfortunately, starting out as an actress on a child's show never benefits you when you're trying to land a more mature role. Amelie is ready to grow up and break out of her good-girl shell. She is ready to show the world that she has more potential, but is the world ready for her?

Then there is Myla Everhart. Famous just for being adopted by Hollywood's golden couple, Barbar (short for Barley) Everhart and Lailah Barton, Myla has the paparazzi tracking her every move. Every time she turns around, not only is a picture taken, but it seems like her parents adopt another child to be her sibling. However, that really doesn't matter to Myla, since the only thing she cares about right now is her longtime boyfriend, Ash.

Ash Gilmour, the son of record producer Gordon Gilmour, has everything going for him, but his laid-back exterior gives no sign of it. Together, Ash and Myla are Hollywood's next golden couple. Of course, this is Hollywood, and relationships always take a turn for the worst. Are they any different?

Next is Jacob Porter-Goldsmith. With a mom as a publicist, Jacob knows who is falling and who is rising in Hollywood. Jacob has always been the geek, the one who never has had a girlfriend, the one who has never had a girl even look his way. But that has all changed. Back from math camp, Jacob has an entirely new look, going from looking like a dork to being transformed into a complete hottie. He knows now he can get any girl he wants, but will a certain starlet he has an eye for look his way?

Last but certainly not least is Jojo. Nowhere near the other A-Listers, literally, Jojo has managed to adapt to her normal life with two dads and a wardrobe that isn't fit for a celebrity. Her life takes a major turn when she discovers who her biological parents are. With that kind of connection she just entered into the A-List world by default. But is the A-List that welcoming? It's not going to be easy, but Jojo is determined to be accepted, even if she has to play a little dirty.

This new cast of A-Listers are just as devious, scandalous, and gorgeous as the first, something fans of the first generation have grown accustomed to. Fans of the original series will not be disappointed. It will be good to see how this series progresses - can it possibly outlast the original?

Overrated

My friend suggested this book to me, and of course I read it. It absolutely sucked, and was very poor and overrated. Now my friend has been acting out of control, and I can totally see why. I suggest you read the books I have recommended.

    Just awful...

    This book if filled with shallow, rich girls that live in California and just fight over boys, go to parties, etc. This book was not only boring it was just overall filled with snotty stuff. Please do not waste your time with such a supercilious and overrated book.

    HORRIBLE!!!!!!

    *WARNING* This book is very inapropriate. Its all about the material world, teen girls should care more about somthings that are important to real life like getting a job, not spending your daddy's money. This is just a message from a concerned mom!

    gossip girl...

    This series is a total Gossip Girl wannabe. However, these story lines are boring and the characters are just immature and stupid, and you get tired of reading about them. I personally like California from visiting there, but I would hate it from reading this book. Gossip Girl is sooooo much better: it's more entertaining, mature, beleivable, and sexy. The A-list is just trashy!!!

    horribly written

    I read this book because of positive reviews and comparisons to the terrific Gossip Girl series. However, A-List has a horridly predictable plot and predictable characters. The real downer to this book is Anna. She is patronizing and believes herself to be moral and above the superficiality of high society, yet she owns Oscar de la Renta and probably other expensive clothes. The development is slow and emotionless, except for the graveyard scene with Cammie visiting her dead mother. The characters are one-sided. Definitely skip this one.
