Editorial Reviews

KLIATT - Paula Rohrlick
To quote the review of the hardcover in KLIATT, July 2005: Readers first met Samantha in All-American Girl, in which she foiled an assassination attempt on the president's life and ended up dating his son, David. In Ready or Not, Sam and David have started an art class together that features nude models, to Sam's shocked surprise. David has invited her to Camp David for Thanksgiving, which Sam interprets as meaning that he wants to take their relationship to a new level and have sex. Then Sam learns that the president's innocuous-sounding Return to Family initiative includes a proposed bill that requires parental consent for teen contraception, and she objects to it on national TV—making it sound like she and David are already having sex. In the end, David isn't the one pushing to have sex; Sam takes the initiative, and wins praise for speaking out, too. Cabot, the author of the popular Princess Diaries series and other novels for YAs, has a knack for creating convincing, down-to-earth teen characters and incorporating many pop culture references. Lots of heart and humor here, and despite all the talk of sex, no real details, though this may still prove to be a controversial title in some regions.
