    I cannot even begin to tell you how shocked and angry I was after reading this book. Meg Cabot has gone down and I don't think she'll be able to earn my respect again. This is a sequel to All American Girl, which I thought was a nice read, if not for a couple flaws that made it a less then desirable book to be recommended. But this book was nothing like I expected it to be.There is a spoiler warning here because I will spoil the book's ending, I cannot avoid talking about it because it and all t [...]

    Reviewed by Me for TeensReadTooIs this book controversial? You bet! Is it funny! No doubt about it. Is it appropriate reading material for all ages? Depends on what you deem appropriate. I've read with interest the other reviews for READY OR NOT, Meg Cabot's sequel to All-American Girl. I even agree with a lot of them. But before I start my review, let me remind you of one salient point--this book is a work of FICTION. It was written by a HUMAN who has her OWN views of life. Just as everyone on [...]

    bad sequel to a great book that didn't need a sequel

    I was so so so disapointed in this book its not even funny! This book not olny was a let down but it angered me too because It sent a terrible message to the millions of young women who read it myself included. I read the book before this one and enjoyed it as a nice light sugar read and so I figured the sequel would be along the same lines but I was shocked and outraged by this books out right support of casual sex. The message any young women would get from reading this book is that there is n [...]

    Heard not-great things about this one before I read it, but I had liked All American Girl so much that I felt like I needed to give Meg Cabot a shot! I have to say that I'm with the critics on this one. Story and believability are sacrificed by agenda driven theoretical sex education. I could not empathize with Samantha at amu point beyong Chapter 2 or 3 since her conflict is entirely mentally fabricated and could easily have been resolved at any point with some simple communication. While I am [...]

    I liked the first book, All american girl, so I was looking forward to the second book. I was disappointed! Although the book tries to make some feel good about yourself and don't let other people define you and rebel - protest, etc, the other half was about her obsessing about naked guys and having sex with her boyfriend. She is in highschool, and although they don't get into the steamy parts, I can't believe she did it with him. Yeah, there is info on using 2 types of protection, but please I [...]

    I don't like it when authors push an agenda, especially in young adult books. to me, this book was all about a young girl deciding when to lose her virginity. i'm not promoting censorship, but this book does not have a good direction for its audience. with parents unaware of activities, an older sibling willing to purchase contraceptive, and the professions of the two children being 'in love', why would any young reader not think this is acceptable, and even desirable? the girl is 16, her boyfri [...]

    2.5Okay so in this book, I wanted to straight up kill Sam.This whole entire book is her debating with herself whether or not she was ready for sex, and it was a misunderstanding between her and her boyfriend David.He invited Sam to join him and his family at Camp David for Thanksgiving break to spend time together and play games.Samantha immediately jumped to the conclusion that the board game Parcheesi was a code word for sex or something. So throughout the entire book, she's flipping back and [...]

    I don't understand all the bad reviews about this book. Most justifies the one star they grant it by the "wrong" sexual topics for teens the book contains.Well, what a bunch of prudes.I was really scared about this book when I started reading it because of these said reviews. And I'm not going to lie that I was a bit surprised by the open, blunt sexual content I found right from the beginning. But it was not "wrong", or too explicit for teens. It was all right.And furthermore, most of the other [...]

    So I was just telling my husband last night how much I like Meg Cabot's YA books b/c they don't have cussing and sex in them. Boy, was I WRONG!!! So I liked All American Girl, but this sequel has something to be desired of. The WHOLE book is focused around Samantha (the main character) trying to decided if she's "Ready or Not" to have sex with her boyfriend (the President's son) because she THINKS he indicated that he wanted to when he never really did. So during the whole debate she talks to he [...]

    I really was not expecting this book to address the issues that it did, so that was a pleasant surprise. Unlike many reviewers I've seen, I did not mind that our main character, Samantha, has grown up a year since the events of the first book. That was refreshing and realistic. And I didn't mind the sex part either--but what really bothered me was the ending, where she does decide to have sex with him. Ironically, I had been rooting for that the whole book through, but the way it happened was ju [...]

    Is it a bad thing I'm not surprised by all the bad reviews?Anyone?Ok. maybe not such a bad thing. So I downloaded All American Girl: Ready or Not when I was looking for something new to listen to while I was at work. I personally prefer to listen to books when I'm at work because music ends up being a distraction and I inevitably start dancing in my chair which is always a bad thing in my case. So, I downloaded this one, remembering how much I liked All American Girl when I first read it. The st [...]

    Sigh…To be honest, I had no plans on reviewing this one until I started reviewing the first (see introduction).Was it as horrible as I remembered?Well, yes and no. I didn’t like how blatant it was essentially a sex ed book. But at the same time I can’t completely fault it for trying to give out relevant information for teens who’s sex ed classes pretty much consisted of having sex will make you go to hell.Then I guess that means everyone’s birth parents are going to hell.I digress.Read [...]

    Very disappointed in the way sex is addressed in this novel. The writing is juvenile and the main characters easily swayed in their "ideals". This character goes to such lengths to make statements about her political views and her individuality that the entire books just seems contrived. I quickly read this one by the way, skipping through boring and unnecessary dialogue and chanting in my head "shes going to make a mature choice, she going to grow up and decide to wait". But alas, she succumbs [...]

    Habe ich mich immer aufgeregt über Samantha. Wiederholend (bis zum kaum aushalten) Panik schieben anstatt einfach mit ihrem superboyfriend David zu sprechen. Lucy ist doch eindeutig die coolere der beiden!

    Puke-tastic and vomitrocious. That's about it. Awful, trashy piece of filth. Should have known, and thankfully I got rid of it after realizing that it wasn't going anywhere but in one direction. The entire freaking novel was fixated on sexual intercourse and the potentiality of said action between two characters. Utterly inspid and tasteless. That does not count as literature, though maybe a one hundred and twenty-third rate rag would publish it. Also, this sort of book makes up a large portion [...]

    I liked this book, but it wasn't as good as the first book. It's still a good and funny book, but the whole thing is basically about sex--it doesn't have much of a plot. Then, I expected the end to be more moralistic, but it was just like "And then we had sex. The end." It was kind of weird, like Meg Cabot didn't know how to end the book.

    (This is my first-ever full-length review, so if it sucks, cut me some slack, 'kay?)So, Meg Cabot. The Queen of Contemporary Young Adult. I've been wanting to read her a long time, and kept putting it off, since, thanks to the deluge of books of hers in bookstores, I could never decide which one to pick up. So, when I found All-American Girl #2, I picked it up based on the first book, a sample of which I'd read up on and adored. The first book wasn't available (that happens a LOT on Paki bookst [...]

    OMG SHE HAS SEX! I can't believe this happens in a YA book! And i love this book for that very reason. I remember the first time I read it i was so so incredulous. This time i read all the bad reviews first, so i thought my surprise hid some of it's flaws. IT DID NOT! I think some of the haters have never read meg cabot books before and perhaps have never been teenagers. First, all of meg cabot's characters talk that way, get over it. secondly, this was entirely her own decision, there was no th [...]

    This book was terrible. The whole book basically revolves around Samantha's misinterpretations of her boyfriend David's intentions when he invited her to go away overnight with him and his parents (his father's the president). Samantha was an annoying protagonist for many reasons, one of them being how oblivious she is to everything and how she always thinks everything David says has to do with sex. For instance, David says his mom needs to know if Samantha can go with them to Camp David, becaus [...]

    Okay. This book was, um interesting? First off, the reason I read this book today was because I remember reading it when I was about 11 and it was one of my favorites at the time. Reading it today, I can honestly say that I probably should not have read this book at such a young age. While I did not remember about 98% of the book, I now realize where so much of my preteen notions about sex came from: this book. While, now, I read it and notice some of the good points it makes on various sides of [...]

    What was Meg Cabot thinking?! Impressionable tweens are reading and drawing inspiration from her books. This story suggests that 16 year old girls should be having sex with their boyfriends, and that it is "no big deal" in the end. Really? Because it should be a very big deal. Regardless of your religious affiliations or moral beliefs, we should be teaching the younger generation more control and responsibility than this book suggests is "normal." I was completely offended by this story and will [...]

    could only make it part way through because I was so disgusted at what was presented for a young teenage girl to readd i'm in my 20st appropriate for younger girls to read.

    Ooh, one of the books to which I devoted a whole outraged blog post. This should be fun, let me just dig that up for you:[disclaimer: I did not read the first book in this series.]2006Remember that step in How To Write a 21st Century YA Novel, "name-drop like mad"? I think Meg Cabot is attempting to break some kind of Guinness World record. Surely these are not all necessary. I'm exactly twenty pages in, and so far by my count she has managed to drop at least 14 pop culture references. Meanwhile [...]

    This book, in retrospect, actually had a huge influence on me as a 16-year-old growing up in conservative Christianity Like it's all about sex positivity, it has a subplot about slut-shaming, our heroine goes to bat for teenage access to birth control, AND there's a scene with in-depth female masturbation instructions

    This book's alternative title should be "Creating a Problem Where There Is None." Lucy and David continue being fantastic characters; the story is hilarious, and the book is an enjoyable read.

    This book isa horror to me. To imagine my young niece reading this book doesn't make me happy at all. In fact, the copy I'd read was hers. And this makes me a bit angry towards the author. With the first book filled with wit and made us (me and my niece) laugh, this sequel is rather a shock and very disappointing. And I feel cheated by Cabot, thinking that my young reader was save reading her book.With the first book was good for any age, why, over all the topics she could write for this sequel, [...]

    Pretty good book.Character Reviews:Sam-I don't feel she's changed much and that's a good think, because she's still a rebel. And she speaks for what she truly believes in. She still did grow up a lot though. As seen in that scene when she and Catherine went to help out Kris for the MTV show at their school. Normally she woulda dumped the paint on her head, but apparently she matured enough to just kick it on her shoes. Relationships?:Romance-Her and David just seemed so lovey-dovey in this novel [...]

    I am so very board in Auckland, but I have found that the library is a great place to waste an afternoon as I have been there every day this week, just reading crappy YA books. Good times! I sat there a few days away and read this one, a novel by Meg Cabot (you may know her from the Princess Diaries series). This is the second book in another series she wrote and unfortunately, this library does not carry the first book, so I had to jump in with the second. Whatever, it was way to pick up what w [...]

    The topic of this book surprised me. Cabot usually stays away from overtly talking about sex. Having said that, it ended up being quite a thought provoking book. I have five children, two of whom are married, and three whom are in their twenties. Our Christian religion believes that sex outside of marriage is wrong. I had sort of stayed away from the controversies this book targets because all the places we have lived (several different states) have sex education as a requirement in high school. [...]
