Summary from goodreads.com
Book Description: 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.
This is the debut novel from author Krista McGhee. Loosely based on the story of Esther, First date is the story of Addy, a Christian high school girl who is chosen to be a part of a reality show. The object of the show is to become the prom date for the Presidents son. Addy is completely against the whole idea of the show and makes no bones about. But as the story progresses Addy realizes that she was chosen not just by school officials and the show producers but by God to be a light to all involved and watching the show.
I enjoyed First Date! It didn’t start slow and it kept my attention throughout the book. There was a romantic feel to the books but not so much that it took away from the message of the book. In fact sometimes I wished there was a little more (ohh well). Even though Addy was younger than me I learned a lot from her. She always sought God’s view, didn’t judge others and she didn’t conform to her environment just to appeal to a boy. She let her light shine even when she was crowded with darkness, there’s a lot to learn from this story. I wont tell you how it ends you have to read it for yourself J
Krista you did a great job on your first novel and I look forward to Kara’s story!
