10. It's by Meg Cabot, the brilliant woman behind The Mediator Series, The Princess Diaries and other stuffish.
9. It's a nice break from all those SUPER SERIOUS SMART BOOKS you read and, let's face it, you need a break and some good chick lit. I mean, it's great to constantly improve your mind with salad and oatmeal, but in-between a good candy bar is tasty.
8. The narrator is awesome, awkward and a total dork.
7. It's completely unbelievable and yet...more

It's really good, and really sweet.
I love ne kind of teen romance novel.
If U like to trick things up a lil' bit, wat u can do is when your reading a teen love story, make/Imagine the main girlfriend, or girl as u, and the boyfriend, or the guy love interest, as someone u like. Like a boyfriend, or even a singer or actor like I do :).
But I LOVE this book.
I'm writing my own teen novel write now, and I made the guy's name David, just like the guy's nam...more
#5 : Sam lives in Washington DC, a hop-skip-and jump away from the White House (ergo, perennial traffic jams caused by the never-ending presidential motorcades)
#4 : Sam is the middle-child, stuck between the perky-cheerleading elder sister Lucy and girl-genius-going-to-special-school younger sister Rebecca (ergo, she is the source of constant disappointment to her parents, teachers and the rest of her school-mates)
#3 : Sam’s...more
This was also the most UNREALISTIC story. And because of that, even little things, like how the little sister received an amazon package on a Sunday (I don't think so. There's no post on Sundays.), really started to bug me.
BUT I had to give it mor...more

Samantha Madison isn't the type of normal teenager who other people think she is. Her relationships with people are unbelievable, including the things that she's done. Both her older and younger sisters are known for being the most popular girl in school and for being the smarty pants genius, respectively. Her life isn't simple and actually, many things are happening to her, which makes her life always fill...more
This is a really light, sassy read. Sam is a spunky main character who is not afraid to stand up for what she believes in (even to the President of the United States). This girls has some serious guts, but is having some trouble managing her own life.
After saving the president and becoming a national hero everything start to go downhill for Sam. She starts to realize that things she though she knew and felt, she didn't really understand. I really liked Sam's character though a...more
Samantha Madison was the middle child stuck between her older sister’s effervescent popularity and her younger sister’s precocious intelligence. Now, I was never a middle child, but I do know how much the middle sucks, whether that middle is a line at the DMV or a seat on an airplane. Bein...more

Between the unexpected fame, art classes that aren't going well, and her romantic troubles, what will Sam do? This go...more
First, I am going to analyze the title with you. This is going to become something regular because titles are an important part of writign. They have to catch your eye from a book-shelf or a book list. So they must be grabbing (if you will.) Titles are just as important as the content that you write, so this is a very important subject.
All American Girl. Hmmmmmmmmm................?????????????????
For this book, the story is about an American highschool girl. (Named Samantha Madison) Huh, I think...more
What did I think?
I'm no good writer but this book was alright, and I kind of liked it.
This is what you'd call a light read - one that didn't give me a headache, well, apart from the main character, Sam.
Sam, in my opinion, freaked me out. I mean, she's obsessed with her sister's boyfriend Jack, and thinks he will dump Lucy, the eldest sister, for her.
Yeah, he loves art. Yeah, he's a rebel. So what? Doesn't mean you have to go overboards. I gotta admit, that was pretty weird.
Stuck up cheer...more
Here's the basic premise. A girl winds up taking and art class. In the art class there is a guy she finds somewhat familiar but she can't place him. He compliments her on her comba...more
Meg Cabot was born on February 1, 1967, during the Chinese astrological year of the Fire Horse, a notoriously unlucky sign. Fortunately she grew up in Bloomington, Indiana, where few people were aware of the stigma of being a fire horse -- at least until Meg became a teenager, when she flun...more

It really is. All the signs are there. I can't sleep- not even burgers. Every time the phone rings, my pulse leaps... But it's never for me, it's never him.”
