All-American Girl by Meg Cabot

A book review by Faith Thompson

 

Samantha just wants to draw pictures in her own way and not get in trouble for being in love with her big sister, Lucy’s, boyfriend. But when Lucy is the most popular girl at school and her younger sister, Rebecca, is a nationally certified genius, Sam feels forgotten by everyone.

Things begin to look up when Sam skips art class and ends up saving the president from an assassin. But when Sam realizes that the president’s son, David, is in love with her and that she’s been named the Teen Ambassador to the United Nations, things get way more complicated.

Teen Summer Comic Book Premieres

The writers and illustrators of this summer’s APL Presents Super Special No. 3 held their premiere party yesterday here at the Library.  This summer’s staff was comprised of eight teens who each created their own character and together they created the villain, T.E.D. (That Evil Dude).  To see more about the production as well as photos, visit Mike Jordan’s website, bigredapress.com.  If you are interested in obtaining a copy of Super Special No. 3, call or stop by the Reference Desk at the Library.

We are currently talking with Mike Jordan regarding the possibility of creating a quarterly magazine if there is enough interest.  If you like writing and/or illustrating comic books and are between the ages of 12-17, call or stop by the Reference Desk to let Donna know.

Thanks to the staff for their work on this issue: Daisy, Brianna, Madison, Kacie, Cassidy, Bryce, Graesyn and Xander; and special thanks Mike Jordan and Jennifer Babineau for their time and care of this project.
