Summary: Samantha Madison is overwhelmed with problems. It’s hard for her to juggle between her boyfriend who is also the president’s son, her life drawing art classes, her job, and her sister who is also having boyfriend problems. Will she and her boyfriend break up? Will she have to quit art classes? Will she get fired? And what will happen between Lucy and Jack?

Why I Started the Book:

I started this book because, as I was reading the back and looking at the cover I noticed that it was a sequel of All American Girl. So, I decided to read it, but it wasn’t as great as I thought it would be.

Why I Quit this book:

I didn’t finish this book because, most of this book is about sex. I (being only 11) have no interest what so ever in this topic. Kissing is good, the rest is not. That made most of this book kinda awkward. Some of the ideas mentioned were just gross, and I did not want to hear about them.

As I mentioned in the All American Girl review, the words “I mean” are used a lot. For instance (and this particular example is not in the book): “I love my new shows, I mean, just because they’re from Payless doesn’t mean they aren’t quality shoes. Know what I mean?” It was annoying and ridiculous. I understand it’s a play on stereotypical teenage talk but it was too much.

I thought that as I listened to more of the book it would get better, but instead it got worse. Eventually I just had to stop.
