All-American Girl by Meg Cabot

Title: All American Girl

Author: Meg Cabot

Published: New York : HarperCollins Publishers, c2002

Pages: 247

Series: All-American Girl, Book 1

Snippet: "Being brave is when you have to do something because you know it is right, but at the same time, you are afraid to do it, because it might hurt or whatever. But you do it anyway."

Summary: A sophomore girl stops a presidential assassination attempt, is appointed Teen Ambassador to the United Nations, and catches the eye of the very cute First Son.

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.


  1. Thanks for the review. I love Meg Cabot's Princess Diaries so I think that this book would be a good read for me.
    I need something light to read after next week because I will have like 3 exams during 2 days. I will definitely look for this book from the library. :)

  2. Great review, I really liked this book, but I'm sad to admit that the sequel was a disappointment, to me anyway.

  3. Loved reading the review. The book sounds very cute. Tonight the movie princess diaries is on tv, yeah going to watch that. Sorry, nothing to do with your review..:)

    I like the cover of this book..I think my nieces will love this one.

  4. I really enjoyed this book. PS- you have a blog award on my blog!

  5. I'll be interested to read what you think about the second book in this series. I loved the first but the second I ended up giving away after I finished it (I still have the first). I have to admit I'm a Meg Cabot fan, they're great for those easy, fun reads!
