All American Girl
Samantha Madison is an average, cool, Washington, D.C., teen: She loves Gwen Stefani (who doesn't?), can draw like nobody's business, and enjoys being opposite to her sister's annoying ultra-social personality. When she ditches art class one day, however, she doesn't expect to be jumping on the back of a wannabe presidential assassin.
Soon, the young hero is receiving worldwide acclaim for her bravery, having dinner with her family at the White House, and is even being named teen ambassador to the UN. As if this weren't enough, she and David, the president's son, strike up a friendship that everyone wants the dirt on, which starts to give her romantic "frisson" feelings.
Unfortunately, Sam thinks her sister's boyfriend, Jack, is the true love of her life, and she makes a few wrong turns that could screw up what she's developing with David. Will she ever stop following what she knows and start following what she sees?
This series is a great read that, once again, Meg Cabot has delivered in a humorous style that keeps you laughing, deep in thought and deals with issues that lots of teenagers deal with, but, the main character, Sam Madison has to deal with publicly, which ensures laughing...
This book is one that is hard-to-put-down and will have you running to the bookstore to get the sequel and always wanting more of Meg Cabot's witty writing style.
I recommend this books for any teenage girl for 13 upwards to about 17
This New York Times Bestseller is a must-read for the summer.
