First Date by Krista McGee
This book starts out with telling about a young girl (Addy) and how she is chosen to go on a reality dating show to win a prom date with the President's son. She doesn't want to do the show but goes anyway thinking that God must have a plan for her. She runs into all sorts of issues with the other girls, her feelings about being on the show, and one very cranky producer who seems to have it out for her from the very beginning. Addy ends up learning more about her self, her deceased parents, and her faith in God than she ever imagined she would. Not only does she make a friend for life out of the deal but she is able to channel God's love through her actions and really show other's what it means to be a true Christian.
I absolutely adored this book. I read all 320 pages in one sitting and to tell you honestly would start it over and read it again if I had the time. Addy was a shy person in the beginning not wanting to step out of her well scheduled box and I can relate to that. I know what it's like to not want to be in the spotlight and just fade into the back. It was an eye opener for me to read what she had gone through by just putting herself out there and trusting in God. This story is a loosely based around the Esther story... but with up to date additions... I recommend it.
