This book review is for the novel "First Date" by Krista McGee.
I wasn't sure at first how I felt about this book. While it wasn't my favorite read ever, I did still enjoy it.
Addy Davidson is concentrated on one major thing...excelling in school and getting into an Ivy league college. That comes to a screeching halt when her principal calls her into the office to tell her she has been selected to appear on a reality show called Book Of Love. She will be competing with 99 other girls for the chance to be the President's sons prom date.
However, the last thing Addy wants is to be thrown into what she deems the lions den. She has no desire for television fame and fights tooth and nail to not have to go on this show but against her very wishes she feels like God is leading her to do this.
Grudgingly, she does what she feels she should but still struggles with her attitude once she gets there.
Will Addy let go and let God work it all out for her good? Will she be obedient and bendable to God's will?
I liked the fact that this was loosely based on the book of Esther and that Addy still had struggles just like a normal human.
Happy New Year All!!!
