All American Girl and Ready or Not are the first two books in the All American Girl Series by Meg Cabot. In All American Girl, Samantha is an outcast. Red hair, all black wordrobe, and an artist. But when she saves the president from an assassin, her whole world changes. All American Girl is one of my favorite books. I love Samantha's outlook on the world. She's bad ass and caring at the same time. Amazingly well written.
In Ready or Not, Sam has to make a hard decision about if her and her boyfriend, David's (who happens to be the president's son,) relationship, and if it's worth possibly losing her virginity. Things are moving fast and Sam has to make a decision whether she's ready or not. Almost as good as the first one. This book reaches all of the stresses and decisions teens deal with, and how to deal without completely losing your head.
