I absolutely LOVED this book! This is one of Meg Cabot's best books! It did sometimes go on to more mature topics but overall it was wonderful!
Age rating for me would be: 14+
I love reading Meg Cabot books because they are so much fun and easy to read. This is a quirky love story complete with a multitude of top 10 lists. I just loved it!

When Sam is sent to take art lessons, she thinks she's ruined. While she's ditching the lessons, she notices something strange about the man next to her. Next thing she knows, she's tackling the trench coat man, and saves the President. From there, Susan, the art teacher, blackmails Sam into coming to the lessons, which she grows to love just as much as her growing feelings for David, the Presidents son. Another enjoyable novel by Cabot, that all teens will enjoy.

This book is about Sam who saves the president's life. She turns into a national hero and is thrown into the media light. Then if thats not bad enough, the presidents son falls in love with her.
This book is really good! Its really funny and thought provoking. This could really happen in real life but is not probal. Its really good and I recomend it to anyone who wants a light read and a funny read.
A Truly Awesome Book!

ahhh a book not about a papered princess who spends her days shopping and nights partying...
i loved how the book title wants you to believe that when it's really about a punk-rocker girl with a passion for art. she's different from the other girls i read about. she's forced by her parents to join art classes, but ditches to go to her favorite record store. she then stops a killer from assassinating the president. she becomes famous for that. she falls in love with the president's son but also with her older sister's boyfriend. this book has a mix of things that wouldn't normally be together but comes together in a great way.

All American Girl-
The book was about a normal unpopular girl, Sam. She is a wonderful artist, who can draw almost anything. When her parents find out she has been drawing, instead of focusing on her foreign language, they force her to join local art lessons. While waiting for her ride to go home she sees the presidents car stop and go in to the local cookie store, a man standing beside her pulls out a gun&&..
This book was a very good book! I loved it&and I cant wait to read the sequel!!!

This book was great! It was definitaly one of Meg Cabot's best books. I could not put it down.
Skip art class to listen to music and end up saving a presidents life what are the chances?
Samantha ends up doing just that and ends up becoming and overnight celebrity.
Her life gets more complicated when she falls head over heels for the President's son.
It's a MUST read for ALL girls Canadian, American, European or African. Wherever your from you NEED to read it!
