"Ready or Not" Time for Another Giveaway

Since for my last giveaway I gave the choice between Meg Cabot's All-American Girl or it's sequel Ready or Not, it's time to giveaway the second half.

Paige the winner from the last giveaway chose All-American Girl so this time we have Ready or Not.
Ready or Not (All-American Girl, #2)
A year ago Sam Madison saved the President of the USA from assassination. A year ago she became a teen celebrity - and started dating David, the First Son. Now, one year on, everyone thinks Sam is ready - for just about anything. Her art teacher thinks she's ready to draw naked people. The President thinks she's ready to present his Return to Family bill to the American people on live TV. And scariest of all, David seems to think he and Sam are ready to crank their relationship up to the next level. They are ready to Do It Everyone thinks Sam is ready - except Sam herself. 
But will David be prepared to wait for his All American Girl?

 Top ten things Samantha Madison isn't ready for
10. Spending Thanksgiving at Camp David
9. With her boyfriend, the president's son
8. Who wants to take things to the Next Level
7. Which Sam inadvertently announces live on MTV
6. While discussing the president's dubious policies on families, morals, and, yes, sex
5. Juggling her new after-school job at Potomac Video
4. Even though she's already the (unpaid) teen ambassador to the UN
3. Getting accosted because she's "the redheaded girl who saved the president's life," despite her new ebony tresses
2. Dealing with her popular sister Lucy, who for once can't get the guy she wants
And the number-one thing Sam isn't ready for?
1. Finding out the hard way that in art class, "life drawing" means "naked people"

This installment was met with a few complaints stating that Sam was behaving the way teens shouldn't behave. And I'll admit that's probably why I gave it a higher rating. Just because teens should behave a certain way doesn't mean they do.
While, I'll admit, slightly hard to relate to, what Sam goes through is what a lot of teens go through.

I'm about to go on a rant here, so I'll just say all in all it is a good story and I actually wish there was more to it. And there are books that go way further.
