This series definitely weighs on you after a while lol. Anna is so exhausting and annoying. The constant brand names and recaps about characters/past books is just not necessary. I like books involving the end of high school but it's not easy to relate to that premise with characters like these. I'm eager to finish off the series and still generally enjoy it.

This book is about a group of rich girls living in a full of drama world. When i was reading this book, i felt that i was watching one of those reality T.V shows. There were people fighting over a guy, someone trying to get her boyfriend back, daughter to father problems, and many more.

I like reading these kinds of books because it's really realistic and i can relate some of these problems to my life. For example, one of the girls in the book lost her mother. This can relate to my life because

American Beauty is the seventh book in the A List series by Zoey Dean. I'm not sure how I keep allowing myself to get through these nauseating books, but they are a little bit addicting. The A List refers to a group of four girls who attend Beverly Hills High, all of whom are extremely wealthy, extremely attractive, or both. And the incessant descriptions of the characters' outfits and surroundings constantly remind the reader of this fact. Of course this is the appeal of the books. They go hand ...more

So like the other A list books, this is a continuation of the series, picking up where the other one left off. In the last book, Eduwardo catches Sam drunkly making out with Parker on Prom night. He was supposed to surprise her, but he ended up being surprised himself. Sam didn't even have time to explain herself. Anna on the other hand, is back with her on and off again boyfriend, Ben who came for the summer. Cammie is still trying to search for her mom killer, although she got some answers. Th ...more

If you look at my "currently reading" or recently read books, yes, it's depressing -- it takes me ages to read "real" books, but I can polish off an A-List in just a couple of hours. Sigh.

In any event, this volume in the continuing A-List saga was surprisingly unhorrible. I think the biggest difference is they have finally made Anna much less of a focus for the books, so there's less about her patrician looks, whining about Ben, thinking about how her mother does things, etc. Instead, we get mor

Cammie comfronts her father about her mothers death, and Sam Comfronts her mother while trying to win Eduardo back. Anna is back with Ben but notices that something isn't right. At Stephanies party Sam gets her ultimate revenge and Anna finds whats been up with Ben. After graduation Anna becomes her own heroine and walks away from Ben and goes with Caine.

I can connect to Anna because sometimes when I feel like something isn't right I follow my insicts and try to fix it. Just like Anna did and fi

It's graduation time for the class from Beverly Hills High. Anna's worried because Ben is being distant. Cammie's trying to track down her suddenly absent father so she can ask him what really happened the night her mom died. Sam embarks upon a mission to win back Eduardo, complete with 100 cell phones while Dee embarks on a mission to have sex with Jack in as many unique places as possible. Fitting fluff for those who have been following the series thus far.

well there were no editing errors here that i found but it wasnt all that great anyways. For all of its shock value promises there wasnt anything that got more emotion out of me than "hmm thats interesting." everyone is still exactly the same as the first book. anna is still wishy washy, cammie is still bitchy, sam is still insecure, and dee is still nuts (though less so than previously) so glad to be nearly done with this series

to think, 7 books done and it is just 6 months of time. i liked this book, more than the last, but it is still leaving me wanting to read the next book. there might never be closure for these characters, but i wish there would be. on to the next.

The 7th novel of the A List Novels. Do I really need to write a review for this one? The "gang" graduates with lavish parties and yachts galore.

As I get farther into the story the more the books drag. It could be that I can barely keep my eyes open right now because I stayed up really late last night but this one is the worst yet.

Zoey Dean is an amazing author. I enjoyed this book a lot, but, like every book, there are some boring parts. The whole Adam & Cammie discovering her late mom got old to me after a while.

Recommends it for: fands of The A-List, It Girl, Gossip Girl, Clique
This book wasn't excruciatingly horrible, as some other "teen ckick lit" I've read lately. My advice: don't read it unless there is nothing else lying around to read.
