First Date by Krista McGee
A competely out of the box read. A "bacheloresque" theme with the presidents son. How intriguing. This book is fairly well written and enormously entertaining. When I first saw the blurb I wanted to read it. But, I, personally think that the blurb was a little bit misleading. Still a great read to pass the time. Here's the Blurb:
Addy Davidson discovers God's unexpected plans for her life when a reality TV show turns her quiet existence on its head.
The orphaned daughter of missionaries, Addy is quite content to stay in the shadows and never draw attention to herself. But when she's selected for a reality TV show to try to become the President son's prom date-a show she didn't audition for-she's suddenly in America's spotlight.
The lights, the make-up, the competitions, and the blogs discussing every move she makes all make Addy incredibly uncomfortable. But through her time at The Mansion, Addy comes to realize that first impressions aren't always right, that hiding out may not be what God had planned for her life, and that her faith should affect everything she does. It may just be that her selection wasn't random at all and that she's on this show "for such a time as this."
I give this Book Three Stars. I received this Book via NetGalley.
