Book By: Meg Cabot
Have you ever done something totally crazy, brave, and completely out of character for you? Well in the book "All-American Girl", By Meg Cabot, Samantha Madison does just that. Sam is a confused and rebellious teenager, and she doesn't fully appreciate her life. Until one day, while ditching her art class, she manages to save the President of the United States from assassination. As you can imagine this gives Sam a lot of attention, and she does not want any of it. However, that is the least of her worries. On top of all that she has been appointed teen ambassador of the U.N. Sam thinks all of that is awful, but the biggest and most unexpected problem that she will face is that the president’s son may be in love with her. Sam thinks she may be in love with him. In the end she learns to embrace new challenges and not take things for granted. I really enjoyed reading this book, though it was very farfetched and unrealistic; it contained some great life lessons.
