Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

In All American Girl Meg Cabot shows that she is comfortably carving out a niche for herself as an author of teen-chick-lit, albeit with the same plot line: an ordinary American girl who thinks she's not ordinary becomes an involuntary celebrity and realises life's the same whatever. This time, rather than becoming princess of a small fictional nation, as Mia does in The Princess Diaries, the heroine Sam saves the American president's life. Perhaps when Cabot's on her fifth ordinary heroine who thinks she's not ordinary, becomes an involuntary celebrity etc the idea may lose its lustre, but this book is fun, witty, cynical and realistic enough to ensure that the idea still shines.

Sam lives in Washington DC, is the middle teenager between two very annoying sisters, and dyes all her clothes black. She has a best friend, she's not cool like her big sister, she doesn't have a boyfriend but thinks she's in love with someone, and she likes to draw. Her credentials as an "ordinary" girl who thinks she's a misfit (black clothes, not a cheerleader) are established immediately, and the story flies from there. Sam's appeal lies in how she's bothered about making things genuine in her life, whilst Cabot's winning touch is in her realism--the president is a normal guy who likes cookies; the plot where Sam saves him is not impossible; the resulting fuss is boring and her priorities lie elsewhere (making lists of Top Tens, worrying about who she wants to go out with, going to her drawing classes).

Fans of Princess Mia will probably read this book in one sitting, and become equally attached to Sam, with her usual teenage desire to feel unusual. For now Meg Cabot's star of an idea continues to shine brilliantly. --Olivia Dickinson

Format: Paperback
This book has to be my favourite EVER! It is great for any girl who enjoys teenage reads! When I read it I was blown away! I really didnt expect it to be so good, but believe me, it was!

Sam is an ordinary teenage girl who loves Gwen Stefani. She has an older sister who she cant stand, not only because she is a perfect, popular cheerleader, but also because she is going out with the boy that is Sam's soulmate. When her sister grasses her up for something, Sam is forced to attend art classes with Susan Boone who she can't stand. Then she meets David, a boy who, like her, is into Gwen Stefani and Reel Big Fish. What she doesn't know is that he is the presidents son!!
PLEASE READ THIS AS YOU WILL LOVE IT. An interesting, but predictable book that even teaches you a bit about art!!

This is a excellent book, and i've only got one bad thing to say about it, there's no sequel.
Sam is an ordinary teen, who views Gwen Stefani as her role model. One day when ditching art class, Sam manages to save the life of the president! She attends dinner at the white house in her honour, and begins noticing the first son, David. She thinks she likes him, but there's only one problem. She's completely and totally in love with her sister's boyfriend Jack, or so she thinks.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes Meg Cabot's other books, The princess diaries. Personally I think this book is about 100 times better than PD, but you be the judge.
If you don't read this book you'll fully be missing out. Everyone can relate to Sam, and you'll want to read this time and time again.

Format: Paperback
When Sam Madison saves the life of the American president she doesn't realise what she has got herself in for. Being the Teen ambassador to the UN isn't all it's cracked up to be, deciding between childrens paintings, attending dinners and staying in the White House for three hours after school every Wednesday isn't fun! Especially when you are in love with your sisters boyfriend Jack and you have to go to Susan Boones every Tuesday for an art lesson. Then there is the small problem of everyone thinking that you are in love with the President's son David. Even Sam's sisters Lucy and Rebecca think theres a bit of "frisson" going on between Sam and David. This book is witty, heartbreaking and realistic! It is a great read and a great buy!!

This is a wicked book, v. funny, I just can't decide if it's better than the Princess Diaries. Sam, the heroine, is great. She has to live with two sisters, Lucy (a cheerleader, yuk) and Rebecca, a child genius. Sam is an aspiring artist but is soo not impressed by having to take art classes, so she skips out to hang in a record store - and just happens to save the president's life accidentally. This is an ace, hilarious book and the people like Catherine and David are nice. READ IT.

I loved this book! Sam Madison saves the life of the President and is catapulted into a world of fame and glory. Anyone who loved 'The Princess Diaries' will love this. There were only two faults with this book. These were that it was predictable, and it was very, well... American. Full of cheerleaders, nerds and putting the word 'fully' in every sentence (eg. "I fully think you should read this"). Other than that, this was one brilliant book. I laughed out loud too many times to count.

This book is fab. It has everything a teenage book needs, comedy, romance, suspense. Me and my friends took it in turn to read it and we all loved it. The story is about Sam Madison an American teenager and ispiring artist. At first she isn't anything out of the ordinary until that is she saves the life of the president of the united states- this is where her life changes and the book takes an exciting twist. She visits the whitehouse and becomes accepted by the in-crowd (both of which were very unexpected.) She spends the book chasing her sisters boyfriend but when David comes into the picture who will she choose?! My favourite characters are Susan Boone and Teresa. Fantastic book- read it and find out for yourself!

I'm a big Meg Cabot fan, and have read most of her books, but, in my opinion, this falls short of the excellence of some of her other novels. I lost interest in the character and the plot a number of times, and found it very easy to put down - not normally a reaction I have to Meg Cabot's books. It's an okay read, but not as good as Avalon High or Teen Idol and doesn't even come close to the brilliant The Mediator 1: Love You To Death: No. 1 series. There's a sequel, but I honestly can't be bothered to read it. If you're in between books, this might be a good filler, but it's certainly nothing exceptional or memorable.

Don't get me wrong, this is an amazing book, see the four stars i awarded it, but sadly it's much the same as the princess diaries. The plots guessable, the characters are like those in Princess Diaries and the Mediator, and the whole thing just feels like you've read it before. Although not outstanding, this book is worth it, it's funny, sweet and has a slither of romance. It has left me wanting more, and i'd recomend anyone to buy it, i just wanted to point out that it is very similar to those books which Meg Cabot has already written.
