I waited for about 2 years for this book to come out and was eagerly anticipating it's availability. I actually bought this book while in DC and couldn't believe my luck when I found out that the bookstore had signed copies (love signed books). Unfortunately, I did not enjoy this book as much as the first. Perhaps I had unreasonable high expectations after loving the first book but Sammy's Hill seemed a lot cheesier and off the wall compared to their predecessor. Where I found I could relate to a lot of Sammy's thoughts and issues in the first book, this book left me far behind. I reread Sammy's Hill a lot and I have reread this book twice now. It was better the second time. Despite my disapointment, I recommend reading this book simply to find out what happens to Sammy, RG, and her love interest. I still like Kristen Gore as an author and hope she writes more in the future.
