It’s been six weeks since Anna Percy left New York to live with her father and become one of Beverly Hills’ elite teens. In that time, she’s been emotionally entangled with two boys, made friends and enemies. Zoey Dean chronicled these events in three previous parts of The A-List series.
Tall Cool One is the fourth installment in the best-selling set. Fans will appreciate that the story picks up right where Blonde Ambition left off. Anna has a bad case of Ben on the Brain. Not helping matters is the sight of her previous crush Adam hitting it off with self-centered Cammie. Anna makes a spontaneous escape from all that troubles her.
Sam can’t bear to share a house with her famous father and pregnant, 21-year-old stepmother. Bizarre preparations for the impending birth drive Sam to flee reality as well.
While Anna and Sam rest at an exclusive resort, shallow Cammie experiences true feelings of love for the first time. However, insecurities and lies jeopardize her relationship with Adam.
Tall Cool One has all the juicy developments of its predecessors. There’s some drinking and implied sex, but the scenes are minor. The dramatic ending is corny and fun. Dean dangles a couple of cliffhangers that will have readers coming back for more. This series is geared toward teens, but is also a secret guilty pleasure of adult females as well.
