Every now and then, it’s good to take a break and pick up an easy, mindless book to read. Since this book is classified as Young Adult, it definitely fit the bill. I was able to read it quickly, but still really get involved in the story. I really enjoyed getting lost in this book after some of the other books I’ve read lately!
The story is well written and the characters are easy to relate to. In addition, I would have no problem passing this on to any young adult I know. It’s a much better choice than a lot of the other Young Adult titles on the market right now. It is modern and relevant and tells a great story without having to stoop to some of the smut that is marketed to teens.
Here’s what thomasnelson.com says about the book:
Kara McKormick is told she’s auditioning to star in a new teen variety show. It’s what she isn’t told that could change her life.
The feisty New Yorker moves to sunny Orlando to participate in a month-long audition, where she’ll live with nine other contestants and an eccentric housemother. Kara knows that the show already has a big-time celebrity lined up for the co-host, but she doesn’t know who it is.
Chad Beacon quickly rose to fame after winning America’s Next Star, but he doesn’t want his entire career to be about singing. There is so much more he wants to do—like act. The new variety show sounds like the perfect next step for him, but his parents want him to have a co-star who shares his faith since they’ll be spending so much time together.
Acting is high on Kara’s priority list. But a relationship with God? Not so much. But God is after Kara’s heart and He’s put people in her life who are showing her there’s far more to Christianity than rules and judgment.
And just when it seems that Kara’s going to have to give up her acting dream, God reveals that she may have a starring role after all—in a story so big only He could write it.
