Samantha Madison is different. She is an artist. Her best friend is far from popular as well. She loves her older sisters boyfriend and her sister is smarter than she is. Her sister tells her parents that she is charging people to have their picture drawn with cartoons and movie stars so her parents force her to go to a art school. Samatha doesn't like the classes and therefor skips which puts her in the right place at the right time to save the presidents life. Saving hom brings on the press and whatnot there is even love in this book!

Meg Cabots novel All American Girl is about Samantha Madison a girl who's into art, black, and indie rock bands. When she saves the presidents life by jumping on the assassins back. Suddenly shes named the teen ambassador of the UN, followed around like a celebrity, and invited to dinners to the White House. The only thing she wants is for her sisters boyfriend Jack to notice her. The bad mood, black wearing, deep thinking prince of her dreams. She meets the presidents son and decides to go out with him to make Jack jealous. Along the way she learns about herself and the boy she really wants to be with.
This is a good teeny chic book. One of those books you will love if you like books with 9th grade romances and quirky main characters.

The book was very unrealistic in two ways. One of which was good and the other bad. The whole saving-the-president-and-his-son-falling-in-love-with-you thing was great. That chosen story line was different and overall very enjoyable. It was fun reading about something that would never happen to me. Meg was very creative while writing this book, but now thinking about it are any of her book realistic? Not really. The part that I didn't like was that Sam was so blind about David liking her. I mean it was so obvious! It kind of got annoying how Sam would get mad or annoyed while David was obviously flirting with her. Also some of the characters were under-developed. I would have loved to get to know Catherine and Rebecca. Overall though the book was very well written and I enjoyed reading it.

This was a satisfactory read. I could related to Sam, the main character, in many ways. Black-clad, sarcastic tongue and with an artistic flair. The plot, though, was cheesy. Sam saves the president and her life changes forever. A modern fairy-tale...no gets worse. She falls in love with president's son, David. The plot may be something to improve on, but the voice and characterization was interesting. It was also extrememly funny. I would recommend this book for people wanting escape from reality. It does as a good job as any fantasy. It also had a sequel, Ready or Not, which, according to my opinion, isn't much better. Still, if you're interested-try the book-despite my strong opinion

This book is about a teen girl who saves the U.S. president from an assasination attempt and get all this attention from the press and the president's son.

I really looked forward to this book but the ending is too predictable. The situation for the heroine is different but the book is too focused on fame and romance. This will be a quick read for those who love Meg Cabot's books, but it's not so great of a book.

In "All American Girl", Sam has a lot to deal with. She's in love with her older sister's boyfriend, her parents are making her take art classes so that she will concentrate more in school, her little sister is a genius, and, biggest of all, she has turned into a celebrity after saving the President of the United States from an assassination attempt. Suddenly, her life changes, some for the better, some for the worse.

I really enjoy reading this book (I've read it about 3 times already) because I can relate to Sam. It is also a very funny book, and I think novels always need at least a little bit of humor in them. While I definitely like this book, I do not feel it is spectacular, hence the 3 stars.
