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.

What a pleasant surprise! This book was very very good! Krista McGee really has some talent! First of all, this is my first book by this author, and I am quite impressed, to say the least! The characters were very good, especially Kara and Addy. The story and writing was very good, and it flowed well. The dialogue was wonderful, if a bit confusing at times (but you soon get over that once you get the characters straight). The Christian aspect was well thought out,and I enjoyed it! Although some may see it as "overly religious", I personally found it encouraging and eye-opening. Very good. I plan to read "First Date" next.

I really enjoyed this book. Maybe it's because it was a light-fun read with tons of laughing moments, or because of the refreshing Christian-based read, or the characters with their different personalities and voices, or the fact that the author gives you a glimpse into the lives of pop-stars and auditioning actors/actresses. Whatever my reason, I really love this book. It was fun to see Kara's journey to God and acting. It had enough laughter and mystery to keep me reading. I recommend this book to anyone wanting a fun comedy book with Christian based beliefs.

After winning America's Next Star, Chad Beacon quickly rose to fame and became a favorite pop-star, but he doesn't just want his career to be focused on singing. He gets an offer to be on a new variety show that he'll be singing, acting, and writing some of his own scenes. It's the perfect thing for him. But since he'll be spending most of his time with a co-star, his parents want someone that shares his faith.
Kara doesn't believe that God is real, and even if she believed that He existed she doesn't want to serve someone that is all about judging and rules and will ultimately bring destruction on your life. But friends surrounding her do believe in God, and they believe that though bad things happen in life, God there's to take you through it. They also believe that somehow, through some circumstance, Kara will realize that there is indeed Someone who cares about her and won't judge her for her mistakes.
Ever since she was a contestant on The Book of Love, Kara has wanted to act again, and not just in front of your typical teen play. So, when she is given the chance to come down to Orlando to audition with nine other girls for a part in a teen version of Saturday Night Live, she readily accepts. She'll be living with the nine other girls and a bizarre housemother. If she wins she'll be starring with a big-time celebrity, whose identity is a secret, and if she loses, she'll be forever wondering what she could have done differently. When she arrives in Orlando, she begins to doubt herself, her heart, and even her own beliefs.

Seventeen-year-old Kara McKormick hung up the phone and screamed. And screamed.
