Samantha Madison is a typical teenage girl who gets thrown into the spotlight when she saves the life of the President of the United States. She insists that she was not a hero and anyone would have done the same thing in her shoes. Sam struggles with her new popularity with the press and the “friends” she gains at school who really just want their picture in the paper. Sam is also in love with her sister’s boyfriend, loved by the President’s son, and appointed the new UN Teen Ambassador. Through all this she learns what real love is like, how to follow rules yet be you, and how to recognize true friends.
