Not too intellectually stimulating but, like many of Meg Cabot's books, a good day dream. View all 5 comments. Aug 27, Caitlin Brown added it Shelves: I mean, it's great to constantly improve your mind with salad and oatmeal, but in-between a good candy bar is tasty. The narrator is awesome, awkward and a total dork. It's completely unbelievable and yet believable. A girl saves the president from an assassination attempt. Go high school girls: There are hot boys.

There's a hair-stealing raven named Joe. The girl, like every girl should, has a dog named Manet it was originally Monet, like the artist, but the dog behaviorist said it sounded too negative You'll understand why I made a list. Did I mention how likable the narrator is? Well, it needs to be mentioned again because if you were EVER a high school girl, you can totally relate. Because frisson is what makes a book fun!

View 1 comment. Oct 23, ellemaddy rated it it was amazing Shelves: I love this book. I read it when I was in the fifth grade and when I reread it now it brings back so many old memories, good and bad.

I remember back in fifth grade I had like the biggest crush on these 2 guys who shall remain nameless and I just wouldn't shut up about it. Honestly I'm a bit shocked I got through the fifth grade without getting strangled by my friends at least once.

I talked about these 2 guys so much that I started code naming them Jack and David from the character in All-Ameri I love this book. I talked about these 2 guys so much that I started code naming them Jack and David from the character in All-American Girl. I mean, it was crazy because I'd be like "Did you know that Jack looked back at me on math???

I led such an embarrassing life when I was little. But it wasn't all crazy and horrible, this book actually made me a whole lot braver. I actually got the guts to give one of my crush chocolate on valentines day so I kinda gave everyone chocolates to cover my tracks but his was the biggest.

I tried my best to be subtle about it, okay. I really did. Don't laugh at me because I was like "OK if Sam can finally be brave enough to face David at the art class and she ended up with him then so can i" so I literally threw a huge pack of Toblerone at 'Jack' and I was like 'Here' and he looked positively scared because we've never even talked before and 'Jack' was like 'Whoa.

This is for me? The end. I could relate to Sam because she is a middle child and so am i. Her sister is super popular and so was my sister! We're both treated like we're invisible and there's nothing special about us except the fact that we both just really really love art. I literally acted like Sam the weird artistic girl who cares about stuff no one bothered to care about and I even started comparing everyone I knew in real life to the characters from this book.

That's how much I loved it. I even quoted words from it and spoke like the way the characters in this book did. I read this book at least twice every month and everytime my Mom caught me reading it she would roll her eyes and made a rude comment about me not having a life.

Trust me, those 3 books are the most battered looking book I own and I'm not the kind of person who would treat my books with disrespect. I just loved those 3 books so much that they're almost always with me like a rag doll or something, I even dared to write my name at the first page of those books with glittered pen, curlicues and all.

Samantha is caught selling celebrity portraits at school and so her mother decides that maybe she needs a creative outlet and signs her up for art classes. Samantha does not want to take art classes, she doesn't think that they would be any use to her, and when she runs it by her older sister's boyfriend, Jack whom she's secretly in love with he totally agrees with her.

Samantha decides to just go to the first class and then she'll ditch it, but she finds that it is actually kind of interestin Samantha is caught selling celebrity portraits at school and so her mother decides that maybe she needs a creative outlet and signs her up for art classes. Samantha decides to just go to the first class and then she'll ditch it, but she finds that it is actually kind of interesting, and that there is also a boy her age.

Then one day after she has skipped class, and hung out in the CD store upstairs for an hour she comes out and sees the president walking into a store, but what she also sees is a man with a gun aiming for his head. Before Samantha can really think about it, she tackles the guy with the gun and saves the president's life. Samantha, as she sees it, thinks her life is over.

It made me laugh. I was highly amused by the top ten lists littered throughout the book telling the story of what Samantha had gotten herself into. Some parts of the story were slightly unrealistic and made me want to gag. I didn't care for the age different between Samantha and David. I thought that sometimes Samantha got a little ahead of herself and needed to respect authority more. I thought Samantha's sister was a pretty interesting character.

I didn't care for Samantha's sister's boyfriend, I thought that he needed to grow up and get over himself, I also couldn't see what her sister was doing hanging around this kind of scum. I thought that the fact that Samantha was "in love" a little unrealistic for someone that young.

Overall I enjoyed this book. I'd probably recommend it. Audiobook rating: I really, really enjoy this audiobook. A sweet reminiscent of what my taste as a tween is like!

I definitely couldn't appreciate this book as much as I appreciated it as a silly little girl, but I think it's still a reasonably good book to read for a silly, angsty tween: Sophomore Samantha Madison is redheaded, a middle child, left-handed, and, in her opinion, one of the only teenage girls left who have not succumbed to the soul-sucking fashion trends of modern-day society. She's a wannabe radical: Sam thinks it's the end of her already lousy world when, as a punishment for bad grades, her parents send her to art lessons at Susan Bo Sophomore Samantha Madison is redheaded, a middle child, left-handed, and, in her opinion, one of the only teenage girls left who have not succumbed to the soul-sucking fashion trends of modern-day society.

Sam thinks it's the end of her already lousy world when, as a punishment for bad grades, her parents send her to art lessons at Susan Boone's. Sam's a good artist, but she doesn't take well to criticism, and so when on the first day Susan Boone accuses her of not drawing what she knows, Sam decides not to come back.

The president awards her the position of teen ambassador to the UN, and his cute son David who is also in Susan Boone's art class thinks there's something special about Sam.

Only Sam knows there's nothing very heroic about what she did. And she doesn't understand why David's being so nice to her, or why her heart skitters when he smiles at her, or why she feels so bad after David finds out she had used him to make Jack jealous at a party. Because she's totally in love with Jack.

People of all ages will enjoy this book. Samantha is an amazing protagonist, and her narration will pull you along like nothing ever had. Highly recommended!

All-American Girl Book Summary and Study Guide

Mar 09, Bitchin' Reads rated it liked it Shelves: I haven't read this in years. It isn't exactly as I remember, but still entertaining. I am really glad I got through the phase of being like Sam fast when I was growing up--the lack of maturity, the know-it-all demeanor May 14, Spencer rated it it was amazing Shelves: Samantha is genuinely funny. She has a great sarcastic quality.

Samantha is a bit of a badass. Yes, she jumps on the back of a man with a gun, but even more brave than that was when she confesses how she feels about David. Samantha's confused and messed up and anxious about boys specifically Jack and David. She's exactly like I was with boys when I was in high school. Samantha has a wonderful family.

All-American Girl

They are supportive even her sisters, which is amazing and rare. Her mom and dad are a perfect balance of strict but loving. David is book boyfriend goals. He is sweet and determined. He is forgiving and funny. He is smart and witty. Even after he finds out some not perfect aspects of Samantha he still likes her. Samantha isn't your typical heroine where she is perfect and knows what she wants.

She's imperfectly perfect. She has failures along the way but she learns from them. Susan Boone. That is the art teacher I wanted.

She's not only a great educator but when her student of three weeks shows up with bread at her house randomly, she's super cool with it. Samantha is a great bestie.

She's supportive of Catherine wanting to date a guy from the local arcade, even going as far as going to a popular girl she hates her party so that Catherine could feel cool. Samantha is completely confident in who she is as a person which is super crazy for a high schooler.

She doesn't care that she's not popular. In fact, she doesn't want to be popular. She just wants to be who she is, which is someone that likes Gwen Stafani and painting and wearing black clothes.

When she realizes she's wrong about something Jack she not only apologizes bit she goes above and beyond to make up for her wrongdoings. There really are probably more, but I'm guessing you may not have made it through the whole lost anyway lol.

But, seriously, it's an amazing book and you should definitely give it a try if you haven't before Feb 09, Qian rated it really liked it. Samantha Madison was an ordinary teenager who has a great talent for drawing, but she has a weird habit is that she only wears black no matter what.

Comparing to her two extraordinary sisters she is always the one who is being left out and forgot, but I guess she was satisfied with her life now. Her younger sister is also remarkable because she is a genius who attend some special school f Samantha Madison was an ordinary teenager who has a great talent for drawing, but she has a weird habit is that she only wears black no matter what.

Her younger sister is also remarkable because she is a genius who attend some special school for people who are highly intelligent.

All of a sudden, Samantha Madison becomes a national hero. This book is a great teenager drama book which I personally enjoyed reading it so much. As for the sudden change of her life, she can not be herself again because her peers and people in the nation look up on her and was holding a high expectations on her which she has never experience before and she was not sure about she should be doing what she want to do while her sense tell her to do the other.

Try hard to keep up the expectation of the others is a good thing, but try not to push yourself too far because there is a limit on how far you could go and if you go past that limit you might get a negative effect instead and you might not always know what you have to gave up.

Mar 26, Nasty Lady MJ rated it really liked it. I think this book is very interesting to look to from a political perspective. Well, like political time capsule perspective. Ultra patriotism, right wing administration, pop culture references. That is purely a Meg Cabot thing. Not a political thing. But still,interesting to see how things have changed in ten years.

I really did like this book, even after all this I think this book is very interesting to look to from a political perspective. I really did like this book, even after all this time though. I think what I love best about All American Girl is that it gives a stupid character consequences for their bone headed idiocy. And Sam tries to make up for being a turd. And boy is she a turd throughout a good chunk of this book.

There are band references that only someone who liked the same music Sam did during that time period are going to get. The romance, of course, was wonderful. When is it not in a Meg Cabot novel? And I really liked the portrayal of Lucy, a popular girl that is not a jerk but a good person. You hardly ever see that in YA.

Also, I've noticed that most of Meg Cabot's teenage female protagonists are very nearly the same. Sure they look different, but they all asks the same questions, they all have the same tone, most of them are outcasts, and the boys they fall in love with are the boys that correspond to each other in the books.

Another thing they all have in common? Like Please Kill me, I can't take any more of this annoying. Samantha Madison sees a gu 3. Samantha Madison sees a guy pulling out a gun and preparing to shoot the president while she skips her art class. So she jumps him, saves the president, breaks her wrist, and meets the president's son.

That pretty much sums up the entire book. Aside from the attempted assassination, it's pretty fluffy and annoying. Throughout the entire book, Sam sits there just moping because she thinks her older sister Lucy's boyfriend, Jack, is her soulmate. All us readers are like Helloooooo idiot. Knock knock! Anyone home upstairs? David is right there. Yoohooo, David! Give her another chance. She's just being dumb! Anyways, there isn't much to talk about. I don't like Jack. Rebecca is weird.

I like Lucy. Her parents are okay. David is great. Short and to the point. View all 4 comments.

Lustige Story mit einer symphatischen aber doch manchmal nervenden Hauptcharakterin. Zu fixiert auf sich selbst! Und gewisse Top Ten Listen waren ein bisschen langweilig. Sep 13, Bipasha rated it really liked it Recommended to Bipasha by: Especially people who look down upon Chick Lit.

I know, i know, I couldn't get any more obvious and cheeky in the prefixes. My Math Exams tend to do that. And now she's bein 3. The president's son just might be in love with her. I totally love Suburgatory Sam Madison has always been totally ordinary.

Apart from having two weird sisters, of course. But then she does something utterly out of the ordinary - she stops a crazy pysco from assassinating the American President. Now Sam's an insant, world famous celebrity. I led such an embarrassing life when I was little. But it wasn't all crazy and horrible, this book actually made me a whole lot braver. I actually got the guts to give one of my crush chocolate on valentines day so I kinda gave everyone chocolates to cover my tracks but his was the biggest.

Okay this paragraph is not appealing. Yoohooo, David! Especially people who look down upon Chick Lit. Samantha, as she sees it, thinks her life is over. Her parents are okay. EWW Disgusting.
