5 stars: Another Great Book by Meg Cabot
If you liked “All-American Girl” ,then you’ll like this book. It’s a great sequel and Cabot deals with issues that teenage girls face today.
It’s true that the main character, Sam, spends a good time thinking about her relationship with David. This of course, includes whether or not she’s ready to have sex. This is something that all teen girls, and for that matter- all teen boys, think about. I think it admirable that Meg Cabot chose to include such a topic. If the author had not touched upon this, it would be an unrealistic look at a teenager’s life.
This book has been recommended for grades 9 and up. I’d agree with that. By that age, most young adults are mature enough to read about the topic of sex. And while many things influence the decision of whether or not to have sex (friends, movies, alcohol), there is no reason to skip this book for fear of it deciding for them.
Meg Cabot has written many other books including The Princess Diaries series.
