From the back of the book: Addy Davidson is the last girl in the country who wants to be on the new reality TV show to win a date to prom with the President’s son. She’s focused on her schoolwork so she can get a scholarship to an Ivy League college, uncomfortable in the spotlight, never been on a date, and didn’t even audition for it.
But she got selected anyway.
So she does her best to get eliminated on the very first show… right before she realizes that the President’s son is possibly the most attractive guy she has ever seen in person, surprisingly nice, and seemingly unimpressed by the 99 other girls who are throwing themselves at him.
Addy’s totally out of her comfort zone—but that may be right where God can show her the most about who she is . . . and who she was meant to be.
My review: It took my brain a few pages to become acclimated to a teenage fiction book, but once it did, I really enjoyed the book First Date by Krista McGee. The plot was not really reality, but one that a typical teenage girl would love. I loved Addy's character immediately and her honesty made me laugh. Teenage girls will be able to relate to the spiritual struggles that Addy has as well as be encouraged in their own spiritual walk. Ms. McGee has based this story loosely on the story of Esther which also adds to the fun of the plot. I look forward to reading more books by Krista McGee and will certainly be saving this book for my own daughter to read in a few years. I received a complimentary e-copy of this book from Thomas Nelson Publishers through their Booksneeze blogger program in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
