Rowena's review of First Date by Krista McGee.
Main Character: Addy Davidson
Love Interest: Jonathan Jackson
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'sI went into this book thinking that it was going to be a bunch of fluff and I wasn't wrong. This book follows Addy Davidson as she goes on a reality TV show (pressured into doing the show is more like it though) to try to win the chance to go to the prom with the President's son. She gets roped into going on the show by her Principal and then her Uncle, who all said that it was God's plan for her to do this. I thought that was strange since I can't imagine God sitting up in Heaven thinking, "Yeah, I think this reality TV show is the perfect place for Addy Davidson." Reality television shows with a whole lot of backstabbing and bullying isn't something that I thought God would want a good Christian girl to be at, but well, that's what Addy was told in this book.
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.
