In American Beauty, Anna's boyfriend, Ben started acting all weird on her for a reason that Anna couldn't understand. Anna then started to hang out with her father's new and tattooed intern, Caine Manning who is just a friend. Sam concocts a shocking yet funny to snag Eduardo back and succeeds, but with a little help from Parker. Cammie confronts her dad in his Hermosa Beach office embarrassing him in front of his entire crew. She finds out more about her mother's death after asking her father by visiting Sam's mom. While this was going on, the BHH a-list attended a party held by their enemies, Pashima and Stephanie. Cammie, Sam, Dee, and Anna devised a plan for revenge. All in all, the seventh a list is an enthralling book with tons of suspense. (You don't really find out about Cammie's mom's death until near the end of the book)

Zoey Dean keeps her story of the A- list going in American Beauty. In this book, the seniors on the A-list are graduating and that means hanging out with friends, and going to parties. Anna is in a car crash and her dad sends his new intern Caine to come help her. Anna becomes good friends with Caine. Also things with Ben aren't doing that well, and they get into a fight at a party. Cammie tries to find out more about her moms death and Sam helps her by meeting up with her mom from North Carolina. Sam finally gets Eduardo back and they agree never to kiss anyone again, other than those two. Everyone goes to a girl from another school, Stefanie, and they set her up to get revenge, for what she said about Sam in the past. In the end they graduate and Anna chooses to hang out with Caine instead of Ben. Zoey really keeps her readers interested in this series.

American Beauty
A-list novel # 7
By: Zoey Dean
Publisher: Little, Brown and Company.
ISBN: 0 - 316 - 01094 - 4
Rating: Must read!

American Beauty is a delicious treat for anyone who loves drama, romance, and betrayal of the young and rich if you love the Gossip Girl and The It Girl series you will love the A-list novels. There is just as much drama as there are top name designers. However the A-list is set in good old Los Angeles, California, which works well for the series.

In American Beauty we are once again following Anna in her quest to be more outgoing since her initial move from New York to LA in the first novel The A-list in this seventh fascicle we follow Anna and her new friends Sam, Dee, and Cammie (who is actually her enemy but they are in the same circle) as they prepare to graduate from high school and move on to the next stage of their lives.

We have Anna who seems to be the main character of the book that is privileged and has come from old money originally from Manhattan she is modest and well-mannered. She was raised much differently from the girls in California which is what gives this series such a nice contrast because it really is about her coming to California to change herself.

Then we have Sam who is the first to befriend Anna. She is the total opposite of Anna she comes from new money her father is a very famous movie star and she is spoiled, popular, and dramatic but she is also very loyal and has a big heart. Although she only lets her friends see it because in Hollywood, it is very important to show people you have the power.

Then there's Cammie who has been Sam's best friend since they were little.

I have read the A-list from the beginning and there is one main reason why it became one of my favorite guilty pleasures. Two Words: Sam Sharpe. This is my favorite character, I just love they way she developed, her approach to things, her cynicism that hides a very emotionally troubled young woman. She is the less cliched of all the four main characters (Anna...classy, prim and proper Hampton girl, yawn..., Cammie the uberbitch always on the verge of redeeming herself and Dee the real LosAngelino character, with all her ingenuity, incense sticks and sojourns in the loony bin). These stories, developments and characters are totally unreal, but hey people, this is FICTION! And meant to be FUN! The characters won't cover their heads in ashes, donate their money to the poor and join Mother Teresa's nuns...It is so exaggerated that it is fascinating for a European like yours truly...

Only CAVEAT: I would actually NOT recommend this book to teens, because many of them could mistake it for reality, or set their goals way over the top.

A Kid's Review on August 28, 2006
Format: Paperback
This book was totally awesome! It was definitely my favorite book of the series! I loved how Anna, Cammie, Sam and Dee come up with such a fabulous plan to get revenge on their enemies. You find out some more details about Cammie's mom's death, but I won't tell you what happens. I definitely recommend anyone to buy this book if they want a good and juicy story.

Zoey Dean knows how to write a great book and keep a reader really interested. Of course, when something climaxes she would switch gears to a different character's drama leaving you wanting more. This type of character set is really fun to read about even though I'm definitely not teenager anymore.
