The New York Times bestselling hit from Meg Cabot

Samantha Madison is just your average sophomore gal living in DC when, in an inadvertent moment sandwiched between cookie-buying and CD-perusing, she puts a stop to an attempt on the life of the president. Before she can say “MTV2” she’s appointed Teen Ambassador to the UN and has caught the eye of the very cute First Son.

Featuring Meg Cabot’s delightful sense of humor and signature romance that made The Princess Diaries such a hit, this New York Times bestselling standalone novel is sure to please fans and new readers alike.

Meg Cabot was born in Bloomington, Indiana. In addition to her adult contemporary fiction, she is the author of the bestselling young adult fiction series The Princess Diaries. She lives in Key West, Florida, with her husband.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A little cliché This book is a classic teen junk read. Does that make it unenjoyable? Definitely not.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute short series This was a book I read after I started the Princess Diaries series. This was a funny and fast read that the Princess Diaries series is known for. I have picked it back up on several occasions and still laugh as I first did reading the series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Book I had originally read this book when I was in grade 7, and I remember loving it! Now being a young 21 year old I still love this book, it's still holds my grip in the book with funny lines and relatable (if slightly exaggerated) characters!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So much fun! I just finished re-reading this book for the first time since I was about 12 or 13, and back then I absolutely loved it. Upon reading it again at 20, this book surprisingly held its own and was just as good as when I was an annoyingly peppy preteen girl. Some aspects of the main character were a little more annoying than they were when I was 13. I mean why dye all your clothes black and be so melodramatic about being a middle child? Other than that, Meg Cabot remains as engrossing and hilarious as ever, and she is definitely still one of my old favourites. A perfect example of a light, feel-good teen contemporary, Cabot’s humorous writing never ceases to entertain. In this novel, teen Samantha Madison finds her life forever changed when she saves the president of the United States from and assassination attempt. All American Girl is pretty far fetched and of course none of the events would actually happen. Even if you, as a teenage girl, did happen to save the life of the president, I doubt that it would have the effect that it did on Samantha Madison. The Dali Lama would probably not send you well wishes and the Smithsonian would most likely throw out your arm cast, not display it in their museum. Yes, it is far fetched. But that’s what makes it such a hilarious and fun read. Who doesn’t want to slip into the world of a good chick lit every now and again? Seriously, if the president’s son had a crush on me, I would be one happy gal! Definitely recommend if you’re looking for a funny Sophie-Kinsella-like read for a younger audience. Meg Cabot is always a winner and I would recommend any of her books!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not Ever Likely To Happen..... ... but still good. :) It was funny, witty, but at times a little slow, especially the ending. There is a second book that Im looking forward to reading though and I would recommend this one. :)
