TheA-List

Notable Plots Edit

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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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.
