Review:

Summer is over and school is back in session! Continuing right where Volume Five left off, "Secret Life of the American Teenager: Volume Six" is made up of the final twelve episodes of the third season of this ABC Family hit. This show just keeps dishing it out. The six volume opens up with Adrian (Francia Raisa) and Ben (Kenny Baumann), newly expectant parents, trying to hammer out exactly what their relationship is. At first, they agree to be friends, in the hopes that one day it may lead to something more. Ben gives her a $50,000 friendship ring which he got from his stepmother. But as Adrian's due date gets closer, the pair began to realize their feelings for each other, prompting them to get engaged. Instead of a big wedding, Ben's father buys the young couple a condo to raise their daughter in. Meanwhile, Grant (Grant Harvey) and Grace (Megan Park) contemplate taking their relationship to a new level. Ashley(India Eisley) opts to do home-schooling because of her anti-social behavior, and meets a fellow anti-socialite to bond with. Amy and her baby daddy, Ricky (Daren Kagasoff) are dating (finally!). Amy, much more mature from her adventures in New York during the beginning of the season, tells Ricky that if he refrains from sleeping with other girls, then they could make their relationship work.***

To everyone's surprise (including his own), Ricky does. But the never-ending competition between Amy and Adrian throws tension into show, causing Amy to attempt to seduce Ricky, unknowingly, in front of her father, and then spontaneously propose to him when she learns of Ben and Adrian's wedding. The competition climaxes as Amy and Grace organize a baby show in Adrian's honor. Because Adrian doesn't have many friends, they are unsure of who to invite. Adrian takes offense and the fight snowballs from just between Amy and Adrian to between Amy, Adrian, Grace, Ben, Ricky, their boss, and Ben's and Amy's fathers. After an explosive secret-revealing session in the hallway at school, Ben apologizes to Amy and the girls apologize to eachother. The shower is a success and the competition seems to be over. But, as this show is so good at, just when you think it's over, you are smacked in the face with a shocker -- and in this case, it's a heartbreaker.. --

Special Features:

Unlike past volumes of "Secret Life of the American Teenager", this one contains no special features. But you can play dress-up with your iPhone, if you feel so inclined.

Final Words:

At times, the constant competition between Amy and Adrian is annoying, but they are girls in high school. "Secret Life of the American Teenager: Volume Six" holds true to the standards set in place by the previous volumes, giving laughs with it's over-the-top teenage drama, and tugging tears out with strong performances from the cast that remind you what this show is really about.
