She believes in doing the right thing, even when it may get her into trouble at times.

Season 1Edit

The A-List follows Anna Percy, who has been raised on New York City's Upper East Side. She has grown up living a preppy, private school life, and was raised with 'rules', which she refers to as the 'This is How We Do Things Big Book, East Coast WASP Edition', though not a real book. Anna is moving to Los Angeles to live with her father for two main reasons. One, her internship in New York City failed, and she is hoping to get an internship in the Entertainment industry. Two, she wants to be different, and thought it would be the perfect place to change who she was. On the plane to LA, Anna is saddled with an annoying seat partner who won't stop talking about himself. Saved from a terrible fate by a cute guy named Ben Birnbaum, the two gradually build a relationship that is promised to continue when Ben invites Anna to the wedding of A-lister Jackson Sharpe, an invitation she accepts. {C}{C After being stood up by her father at the airport and the restaurant he promised to meet her at for lunch, Anna returns home to find Jonathon Percy (her father) passed out in their gazebo with marijuana lying nearby. An angry confrontation between them leads Anna to believe that her father does not want her in L.A. with him after all. {C}{C Later that evening at Jackson Sharpe's wedding, we are introduced to the three junior A-listers: Samantha "Sam" Sharpe, daughter of the groom, Camilla "Cammie" Sheppard, and Delia "Dee" Young. All three host a large-scale obsession for Ben (a fact they have not admitted to each other), and therefore are upset to discover he has brought the new girl Anna along as his date. They spend the evening trying to gain his attention, which leads to Sam's dramatic rejection, a bonding experience between two ignored daughters (Anna and Sam), and Anna's ruined Oscar de la Renta dress. Sam's close-knit friends (and Anna) escape the wedding to attend a Warner Brothers New Year's Eve bash. Cammie manages to convince a bigtime producer that Anna is a hooker, but Anna is not fazed by Cammie's jealousy-induced attempts to break her and Ben up. The party ends with Anna and Ben escaping to Ben's father's boat to have sex, Sam and a group of partiers to her father's house to get drunk, and Cammie to her mother's grave. On the boat Anna tells Ben that she is not ready to have sex and Ben takes it fine. Ben tells Anna to stay put while he go gets his car. Anna is tired and takes a nap and wakes up only to find out that Ben has left her on the boat. {C}{C At a small charity project in Venice, Anna throws up all over Cammie and later learns that she has food poisoning from an expired yogurt she ate for breakfast. While caring for an ailing Anna, Dee admits that people look down on her because she is short and spiritual, and that she is pregnant with Ben's baby. Dee only thinks that she is pregnant with Ben's baby, but she is not. {C}{C Anna is enrolled at Beverly Hills High (the same school that Sam, Cammie, Dee, and their friends attend) when her internship fails to work out. The story ends with her exclusive break-up with Ben and a confrontation with Anna at Beverly Hills High School, and Cammie who seems to be threatened now that Sam and Dee are showing interest in a friendship with Anna.

Still living with her father, Anna receives an intership at her father's girlfriend's new agency but is still forced to attend Beverly Hills High (BHH) and finds herself sharing classes, much to her disdain, with Cammie Sheppard and Dee Young with whom a good impression was not made in the first novel. Her friendship with Samantha Sharpe however blossoms as the two work on a film project for their English class regarding the Great Gatsby. Much to her horror, Sam finds herself developing a lesbian crush on Anna and spends the novel worrying if she is gay. {C}{C In a subplot, Anna's older sister Susan Percy was kicked out of rehab (though she claims she checked herself out) and takes a room in the Beverly Hills Hotel. Anna tries to persuade Susan to stay at their father's house, but Susan only vaguely mentions her reasons for hating their father. Anna is worried Susan will not be able to stay sober and grows even increasingly worried when Susan makes friends with Dee Young and Cammie Shepherd, Anna's nemesis. To add to Anna's troubles, Ben is still pining after her for forgiveness, which she refuses to give, but in the meantime she begins dating Adam Flood, an all around good guy who is a point guard on the school basketball team, whom she met at Sam's father's wedding. However, Anna realizes that she is truly not interested in Adam and cuts off ties with boys in order to focus on her and Sam's Great Gatsby project. Anna volunteers to write the screenplay for the project, despite Sam's misgivings. {C}{C Anna and Sam shoot their film project at Veronique's Spa, with Susan tagging along. On the way there, Anna reveals to Sam and Susan what happened between her and Ben on New Year's Eve and makes Sam promise not to tell Cammie or Dee. Susan encourages Anna not to be afraid of falling in love but admits that Ben sounds like a bit of a "player". Much to Anna's displeasure, Cammie and Dee are at the spa as well though Sam promises they won't get in the way. Two schoolmates, Parker and Monty Pinelli, arrive and they help find actors for the short film. Even though she made a promise, Sam cannot resist and ends up telling Cammie and Dee Anna's secret. Cammie tries to use this information to get Ben back but he rebuffs her advances. To his surprise, Anna calls him later that night but she immediately regrets that decision, but not before Ben is able to check his caller ID and figure out where she is. In the midst of filming, Ben bursts into the sauna the group is in and begs to talk to Anna alone, but they are locked in by a vengeful guest who wanted to punish Susan for flirting with Parker Pinelli. Susan gleefully reveals everyone's secrets in an attempt to get Anna out of her cold and repressive ways: Anna and Adam broke up, Dee had sex with Ben during her tour of Princeton, and Dee is forced to admit that she is not really pregnant. Anna runs away from the scene when they are finally let out, with Ben chasing her. Cammie is annoyed that Ben came for Anna and loves Anna more than he ever loved her whilst they were going out so she he decides to manipulate Susan into falling off her sobriety wagon. {C}{C At the Steinbergs' party, Anna has to accompany a new playwright, Brock Franklin, who was her sister's ex-boyfriend, for Apex, the agency she's interning for. Susan, courtesy of Cammie, becomes drunk and causes trouble at the party, but fortunately for Anna, Sam plays it off as if it is all part of their Gatsby project and rush Susan home. While at Anna's house, Sam realizes that her lesbian thoughts about Anna are harmless and that she's not gay. She advises Anna to go away for awhile and leave her troubles behind. Anna's father, Jonathan Percy, comes home and Anna demands to know what happened that made Susan change into an alcoholic. Jonathan explains that Susan had been going out with a terrible boyfriend who was getting her hooked on drugs. Susan overhears and coldly adds to Anna that the Percy family actually paid the boyfriend to leave Susan, which clinched her descent into addiction. Susan and Jonathan begin to argue until Anna decides she has had enough and tells them that she is going away for a few days and asks them to try to resolve their issues. {C}{C Anna goes off to the Montecito Inn, in Santa Babara, hoping to get away from drama. Then, Ben shows up. He tells her that Sam told him where Anna was going to be and he finally admits why he left her on the boat on New Year's Eve: his father is a gambling addict who lost a lot of money that night and threatened a suicide attempt. Embarrassed and ashamed, Ben concocted a story of a mystery celebrity friend who needed his help. He apologizes to Anna once more and she forgives him. The two go back to her hotel room and Anna loses her virginity to him.

Season 2Edit

The series begins with Ben and Anna in bed at the Montecinto Inn. However, they interrupted by a call from Anna's father who says that Susan is going to back to rehab and wants to say goodbye. Annie considers their farewell to be intimate and is surprised when Ben tags along though she does not voice her displeasure. After Susan boards the plane to her next rehab, Anna must face the consequences of the Steinberg party. {C}{C Margaret informs Anna that her behavior (abandoning a client in favor of rushing a drunk Susan home) was unacceptable and is about to fire her when Clark Sheppard intervenes. He takes Anna as his intern and gives her the assignment of covering the latest hit TV show Hermosa Beach. Anna meets the young but charming co-executive producer Danny Bluestone who actually dreams of writing the Great American Novel and is appalled by Ben's increasing jealous attitude towards him and Jonathan Percy's driver, Django, who has always been friendly to her. Anna is also worried that Ben is dropping his studies for her and tries to get him to go back to Princeton. Their relationship must come to another end when Ben agrees he must go back to Princeton to finish school and not worry about his family so much.

Meanwhile, Adam tells Cammie that they should slow down their relationship because he still has feelings for Anna. Enraged, Cammie plots to sabotage Anna, who is somewhat enjoying her internship, despite the unfamiliar terms and erratic actors. Soon, it all comes crashing down when Clark accused Anna of leaking sensitive information to the press. He fires her and forbids anyone from work associating with her. Anna tries to explain to Danny her side of the story but he sadly tells her that he can't been seen with her or else he will lose his career. Sam makes Anna realize the true culprit and the two plot a plan for justice. In the meantime, Cammie organizes and throws her sweet 18th birthday party on her own (since Sam and Dee have been too busy to help) and is horrified when her credit and debit cards are denied by the party planner. Even worse, her BMW is towed and when she returns home, Clark reveals that he knows Cammie was the true culprit behind the leaked information and is going to be punished for so, thanks to Mia who collaborated with Sam and Anna to clear Anna's name. {C}{C In the morning, Adam shows up to comfort Cammie and the two go on a quiet date to the park while Clark half-heartedly apologizes to Anna for the mistake and offers her job back. Anna politely declines and then surprises Danny at the office. He leaves work early for her and the two go on a date.

At the beginning of the series, Anna is at the beach with Danny, the producer she met whilst interning for Clark Sheppard on Hermosa Beach, learning to surf but just can't seem to get it. Their relationship from the previous episode, Blonde Ambition, doesn't seem to go more than beyond friends even though they shared a few steamy kisses in the third book. Whilst sitting on the beach Danny spots a gorgeous red-head and waves to her. Anna notices and wonders why. Danny tells her that he met her at a party and they had a one night stand. This leads on to Danny and Anna having a conversation about one night stands and Danny saying that Anna wouldn't have one. Anna says that she would and that she doesn't think casual sex is bad even though she has only had sex once with Ben who has returned to Princeton. Her relationship with him is not certain between both of them but Anna thinks that them two have broken up. {C}{C Once Anna returns home she finds her mother and father on the couch in her father's house in Los Angeles having a drink. She finds this shocking because her parents had a divorce and couldn't stand each other. Her father explains that her sister Susan is coming out of rehab and that her doctor there suggested that they meet her there as a whole family. Anna doesn't agree with this since she knows that Susan can't stand either one of her parents but doesn't say it out loud. When they get to the airport Susan is nowhere to be seen and they all are worried. They search the airport but finally give up and go back home. A few minutes after they arrive home Anna receives a phone call from Susan saying that she took another flight from when she landed at LAX since she knew their parents would be there and she couldn't deal with it. Anna is okay with what Susan has done but her mother disapproves. {C}{C Anna had enough of the drama of her sister and parents so decides to take a nap upstairs in her room. Unable to sleep and having her phone ring a few times causes Anna to check her messages to find one from Ben calling from Princeton. He says that he thinks that him coming back to school was a good idea and that he still thinks about her. Anna is confused after this and tries and fails to figure out what her and Ben are.

Anna sees her father and mother again and quite close since their divorce. She finds this uncomfortable and asks her father once her mother leaves what was happening between them and if they were getting back together. Her father gives her a cryptic answer which does Anna no good. Thinking of relationships Anna calls Ben hoping to get voice mail but he picks up and she freezes. She hangs up after saying nothing to him. She remembers her father asking her whether she wanted to go to Las Casita's in Mexico to help him see if he should invest in the place. She decides to go.

Before Sam arrives at Las Casitas, Anna had been flirting with the surfing instructor, Kai, and almost has a one night stand with him remembering her conversation with Danny on the beach and her being not able to do it. She tries to prove him wrong but in the end doesn't have sex with Kai because of her over thinking things. {C}{C Once Sam arrives though things get fun. They go all around Las Casita's and a street party where afterwards they to the beach and go skinny dipping where a man spots them. In the morning they meet him. His name is Eduardo and he places an interest in Sam. Eduardo is the son of a very wealthy and classy Peruvian politician and likes Sam for her and not her name. Sam does not believe him despite his attempts. She eventually agrees to brunch where she sees his honesty. Later they make plans for dinner since he flies back to Paris the next day. But before that Anna and Sam go shopping in La Trinidad and get drunk on some intense homemade mescal and the worm that goes in it. They get lost in the desert where they then find out that they had not got their jewellery, cell phones or watches. A storm approaches and they find shelter at a very big house. Back at Las Casitas, Eduardo and Kai are meant to meet Anna and Sam but they are both no shows since they are stuck in the desert. Eduardo learns to find that they both did not return to the Las Casitas bus and is very angry and demands to speak with the girls' families.

In the morning Anna and Sam find themselves lying in the bed of the house they found and are discovered by guards that work for the person who owns the place. They are saved by Jackson who came by helicopter for them and return to Beverly Hills. While packing their things, Sam sees Eduardo at her casita but he seems angry and annoyed. {C}{C On the way back Anna realises that she did not work out anything while she was in Mexico even though that had been her plan. She was also upset when she got back to the airport that her father had not come to Mexico to save them even though Sam's had.

Season 3Edit

Back in Black finds the A-List crew in Las Vegas! They have decided to forgo the school sponsored trip to Washington D.C. in favor of a far more exciting adventure.

During this whole adventure Anna is pining for Ben who is away at school, and trying to convince him to join them in Vegas. Anna's best friend Cyn turns up with her boyfriend Scott Spencer. The crew decides to visit a hypnotist, this book is also and secrets and surprises are revealed, that no one expected that leads to cat fights, and revelations that were much more appropriate kept inside. Dee of course has decided that instead of partaking in all the sinful action of the city that she is going to reform the sinners of the sin city, which leads to an ending and a breakdown that makes everyone forget what was said at the hypnotist. At the end, before they go back to Beverly Hills, Ben shows up and Anna stays behind with him. They have a chance to talk about what happened between them. Ben confesses that he's seeing someone at school, Blythe, but its not serious. In the end Anna and Ben decide to get back together.

Maddy, a girl who's a junior in high school who has just had Gastric bypass surgery is staying with the Birnbaum's, and to Anna Percy's disdain, has quite the (newly) curvy figure. Adam discovers a shocking secret about Cammie's mom, one that will shake both her and her friend, Sam.

Anna explains to Ben that he should get off his horse and that she doesn't need saving. He says he loves her because she doesn't need saving. Between most of the couples in the A-List, on prom night, they are the only two that end the night without any problems.

Season 4Edit

It is graduation time for the A-List crew. That means lavish yacht parties, designer caps and gowns, and saying bye-bye to high school for good. Despite the festivities, Anna is not in a partying mood. Ben has been acting distant and she is worried. Maybe her father's hot tattooed intern, Caine Manning, will help cheer Anna up! Ever since her illicit kiss with Parker, Sam has been Eduardo-less and heartbroken. But hopefully Sam will use her brains and considerable means to get creative about winning Eduardo back. And infamous Cammie? She could not care less about graduation, not when she is so close to unraveling the mystery of her mother's death. She will stop at nothing to find out the truth. The book starts out with Anna driving to Sam's pre-graduation party on her father's new yacht. While talking to Cyn, her best friend from New York, she stops to let a couple cross the street, and a woman hits the back of her car.

Heart of Glass begins after High School ends for Anna, Cammie, Sam, and Dee. The girls have finally graduated and are looking forward to enjoying a carefree summer. But, while Anna and Sam are housesitting, Cammie convinces Anna to trespass on a neighbor's property. This neighbor has a vendetta with Cammie's father, the famous agent Clark Sheppard. Cammie and Anna are arrested. While Cammie remains unfazed, Anna is nervous. Fortunately, the girls' attorneys make a deal with the DA and they only have to complete some community service—helping run a charity fashion show for New Visions, an organization to help less-fortunate girls. {C}{C {C Meanwhile, Eduardo and Sam are now back together, but Sam can't help feeling jealous and insecure over their relationship as Eduardo acts friendly towards a fellow Peruvian, a beautiful designer named Giselle. Anna and Ben are taking some time apart, and Anna is now dating her father's hot intern, Caine. Adam Flood has decided to spend the summer in Michigan, leaving a lonely Cammie alone in LA. Dee is still with Jack Walker.

When Cammie and Anna attend their first day of community service, they meet a younger girl named Champagne. Champagne is very beautiful, but comes from a lesser family than the girls. It is clear that Champagne is interested in modeling, but because she is too petite, she is often dismissed. Virginia Vanderleer, an older woman who is the head of New Visions, tells Cammie and Anna that Champagne is accused of stealing a dress not too long ago.

Ben attempts to steal Anna back from Caine, whom he detests. He arrives at Anna's house and they talk. Later that night, Anna and Caine go on a fun date to a Ferris Wheel.

Then, Sam, Cammie, Anna, and Champagne visit PacCoast, a modeling company, where Sam has connections, to pick models for the New Visions fashion show. Cammie decides to take Champagne under her wing when Champagne reveals some of her aspirations for her future. Anna, as well, is surprised and impressed by the girl's sincerity.

At a Ben-Hur cast party that Poppy throws, Dee and Aaron become closer friends. Parker reveals to Sam that his flirting with Poppy was successful, and Poppy had given Parker her private cell phone number. Also, Jonah Jacobson, the son of motion picture mogul Andrea Jacobson, approaches Sam about a script he had written and given to Jackson's company. As part of Sam and Anna's job working for Jackson, the two read scripts and evaluated them. However, Jonah Jacobson (under the pen name "Norman Shnorman") had written a terrible script, and in return, Sam had given it a terrible evaluation. Sam is frightened that Andrea will take revenge on Jackson for the cruel words written about her son's script.

Cammie, Anna, and Champagne go shopping, and the good side of Cammie emerges. She agrees to help Champagne, giving her kindhearted advice, and buying her new, expensive trendy clothes. Then, Cammie calls Adam, but their conversation makes her depressed, as Adam reveals that he is not ready to return to LA anytime soon and wants Cammie to come to Michigan instead. He admits that he is having second thoughts about his college and is considering the University of Michigan.

Anna sneaks into Jackson's office with Caine on a mission to change the evaluation that Sam wrote about Norman Shnorman's script. They successfully fix everything, and Caine attempts to seduce Anna on a couch. Anna resists, telling her she isn't ready for that. Caine does not seemed disturbed or upset, and immediately stops and the two exit the office.

While in Cammie's Lamborghini, Cammie tells Anna about her plan to help Champagne. Anna agrees to help and enlists some of her old connections from back in New York to help.

For the fashion show, all of the models are trying new looks. Anna tries on a short dress, which looks stunning on her. Later, she bumps into Ben, who comments on how beautiful she looks, and tries to win her over yet again. Anna resists, but cannot deny the feelings she felt. The two share a kiss.

Anna uses her East Coast connections to pull a deal with Lizbette Demetrius, an upscale cosmetics company CEO. Cammie sends pictures of Champagne from a modeling shoot to Lizbette.

To find male models, Champagne takes Cammie and Anna to The Firehouse, a restaurant/bar that her cousin Bryson works at. Bryson and the other handsome waiters/strippers that work at the Firehouse agree to be models for the show. Cammie and Anna are enjoying their visit, until one firefighter catches Anna's attention: Caine. Anna confronts Caine, who does not see what the big deal is. Anna tells Caine to take her seriously, and he agrees.

When Anna returns home, she finds an email from Lizbette, who explains that she was quite pleased with Champagne's pictures and is interested in using her, and plans to attend the fashion show to meet Champagne in person.

Anna confronts Caine and Ben simultaneously, telling them that she wants to date both of them at the same time. Caine agrees. Ben is incredulous, but eventually he kisses Anna sweetly and agrees, because he doesn't want to lose her.

Cammie announces to Anna that if it doesn't work out between her and Adam, Cammie will go after Ben.

QuotesEdit

Etymology Edit

  • The name Anna is commonly thought to be a variant of Hannah, a Hebrew name. In Hebrew, the name is Hannah and in Latinate form, the name became Anna, losing the initial 'H' and also the 'h' at the end. The name appears in the Bible and has many variants in English as well as many variants in other languages. In the Bible, Hannah was a devout and sincere woman and the Hebrew name means something similar to 'gracious'. As such, the name is a very popular one when naming baby girls. Both forms, Anna and Hannah remain at the very top of the charts for baby names for girls.
  • The name "Percy" derives from the village of Percy-en-Auge in Normandy from which was derived the British surname, first taken by the Norman lords of Northumbria. From there it came into use as a given name.
