Review: I quite enjoyed reading All-American Girl. It was a nice, light read and I found it to be a good book to read after the stress of exams. I really liked Sam but I did not like either of her sisters until near the end. Thats when I started to think that Lucy wasn't too bad. She was just a bit crazy at times.
I love how all of Meg Cabot's books are easy reads that open up insight into other worlds and situations. I found All-American Girl to be no different to any of the other books by Meg Cabot I've read.
One thing that I really liked about All-American Girl was that the whole book was based around perception and as Sam grew as a person it was really cool to see her perception change.
Overall, I think that All-American Girl is the perfect summer read for anyone wanting to spend the day relaxing and curling up with an entertaining, light and short read.
There's also a sequel which I know that I will definitely be picking it up and reading it.
