Overview

The New York Times bestselling series about the scandalous lives of rich and famous teens in Beverly Hills, California.

High school is officially over and that means one thing for the A-List: time to party! But the celebration is cut short when unlikely pair Anna and Cammie find themselves in an even more unlikely situation—caught trespassing on a celeb's beach estate—and are forced to don steel handcuffs along with their Tiffany tennis bracelets. Luckily, the girls are spared a summer stuck in tacky orange jumpsuits when their hotshot lawyer lands them a cushy community service gig: helping plan a fabulous charity fashion show! But while it may seem like a plush job, Anna and Cammie are in for a challenge. Can the girls handle the pressure of the vicious fashion world? Or will they fall to pieces faster than a cheap Louis Vuitton knockoff?

Editorial Reviews

Anna Percy loves bracelets, but uncomfortable steel handcuffs are definitely not her style. Her high school graduation festivities are abruptly terminated when she and Cammie find themselves arrested for criminal trespass. Fortunately, her Dream Team defense gets her off with a cushy community service gig: She and her gal pal are sentenced to plan a charity fashion show. Zoey Dean's well-coiffed A-List Series continues its hip chic run.
Children's Literature - Heather Robertson Mason
Designer clothes, expensive cars, champagne, and Tiffany jewelry. The teenagers in this story are rich and spoiled but, in the end, good at heart. Annie and Cammie are not really friends; they are only connected through mutual pal Sam. When the two of them are caught trespassing, they are forced to perform community service. Of course in this world of glamour, that means they help out with a charity fashion show. In between choosing outfits, selecting models, and drinking champagne, they meet Champagne, a teen from the opposite life. When clothing starts to go missing and Champagne is accused of stealing, the two girls band together to find the real thief. The main star of this book is the lifestyle: rich teens spending a lot of money. There is only the glimmer of a lesson at the end, and many of the side stories are left unresolved. Despite these flaws, girls will love this book. They will treat it like a good piece of gossip. Reviewer: Heather Robertson Mason

The A-List #8: Heart of Glass: An A-List Novel 4.4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 44 reviews.

In the last book in the A-LIST series (AMERICAN BEAUTY), the gang had finally graduated while discovering some juicy secrets. Cammie had discovered more information on what really happened to her mother. Sam was finally reunited with Eduardo, and Anna met Caine, who was nothing like her boyfriend, Ben. And Ben's dirty little secret wasn't a secret any longer.

The A-Listers are back again in HEART OF GLASS, and this time with a little twist.

Anna and Cammie have to work together - that's right, together - on a charity fashion show. But they got off easy, since this little community service project was the result of getting caught trespassing on a celebrity's estate. No worries, these two can work together, right?

Anna and Caine are getting a little closer, while Ben doesn't seem to worry so much. While Adam and Cammie are trying to make things work, we're hoping that opposites really do attract. Sam is still trying to adjust to living with Poppy, and maybe trying to get rid of her at the same time, while making sure nothing goes wrong with her and Eduardo. And Dee, well, she's Dee, trying to get back on her feet.

The gang is back and it's going to be one sizzling summer.

Eighth in the series, HEART OF GLASS is still filled with secrets, lies, and plenty of drama. The best thing about this series is that the material is never old and it still keeps you guessing and on the edge of your seat. The cast is still great and you just love Anna more and more after each book. Lets just say that HEART OF GLASS is more appealing than another episode of a certain teen drama on a new network - at least I'm experiencing something I haven't seen before!

Heart of Glass A-List Novel#8 By: Zoey Dean Publisher: Little, Brown, and Company ISBN: 0-316-01096-0 Rating: Absolutely Amazing! ¿Heart of Glass¿ blew me away; it was by far the best book in the series yet. To start with, the cover pulled me in. It is very colorful and has a Cinderella feel to it, with a very pretty girl in a green corseted dress walking barefoot down a staircase. The book had quite a few elements that the others lacked. This one showed new sides to characters that I think a lot of readers have been longing to see. It had very touching moments. Which I will discuss later in this review, but this book was truly an enjoyment to read. It was a very fast read, once I started it I couldn¿t put it down. ¿Heart of Glass¿ has very memorable characters and very memorable scenes. In this volume we follow the outrageously different group of characters in their first summer after graduating high school. Some pretty unbelievable and amazing things happen to all of them as well as some pretty terrible things. Anna and Cammie find themselves in some legal trouble, that even the most expensive lawyer cannot get them out of without doing community service. However if you are thinking orange jumpsuits and picking up garbage on the side of the road for these two fashionistas, you are very mistaken. Even these girls¿ punishments are glamorous. They end up helping to organize a charity fashion show, for a charity called New Visions to help at risk teens set their lives on the right track. It seems to be a pretty cushion filled job for Cammie and Anna but there are lots of twists and turns that could very well knock these girls right off their extremely expensive stilettos. Cammie and Anna surprisingly got along in this book for the most part and end up helping each other out a lot through this book. Anna brings out the good side in Cammie and Cammie brings out the wild side in Anna. The girls bonded over helping one New Visions girl, Champagne reach her dream of being a model. Although the question is after the fashion show is over will Anna and Cammie go back to hating each other? Sam is back with Eduardo and couldn¿t be happier except she is convinced that Poppy, her stepmother is cheating on her father. So she asked Parker to help her bust Poppy in exchange for three scenes in her father¿s new movie Ben-Hur; but how far will she go to take Poppy down and will it be worth it? Dee and Jack are getting serious, a little too serious for either of them to handle but when another guy, Aaron moves in on Dee with Jack fight to make it work or just let Dee go? Anna was so sure she was done with Ben in the end of the last book, but Ben isn¿t nearly done with Anna. He is planning to wait around until she comes to her senses, even though she¿s dating someone else who is covered in tattoos. But when Anna finds out some possibly incriminating information about Caine will she go running back to Ben? Cammie is tired of being put on the back burner for Adam¿s precious Michigan. It will only be a matter of time before Cammie¿s horns start to poke out again and demand attention. ¿Heart of Glass¿ showed a new dimension to the A-List characters. I can honestly say that I fell in love with this book. Just when I thought I had something all figured out, I was thrown for another loop, some parts I was so shocked that I couldn¿t even put it into words and other times the brilliance in the scenes just blew me away. I have loved this series

After the first book in this series, it is my favorite and I loved it. I think it is really never ending drama and the writer is pulling you through the book. I am scared about what will happen to ben and Anna. She is "dating" Caine and Ben, but i know that Anna and Ben are meant for eachother. Cammie will go after Ben for sure, even though Adam still has a chance to come back, I don't think he wil make it bac in time for Cammie. I think Sam and her boyfriend are perrrrfect, and a little surprise in store for the next book. I hope you love the book as much as I did.
