This book is amazing! Krista McGee is a Christian young adult fiction writer, but First Date is for anyone who wants to know how to let God use them in their lives. Addy Davidson is picked to be a participant in the reality TV show, The Book of Love. The winner gets to go to the prom with the President of the United State’s son, Jonathon. Addie doesn’t want to be on the show; she wants to be left alone to live her life in quiet. Unknown to her, God wants her to be on this show to step up and speak up for Him. Once she realizes this, she is nervous about speaking of her faith to others who may not believe like she does, but she relies on God to give her the words to say. If you’re nervous, shy, or feel you can’t talk to people about your faith, you must read this book!
I could picture myself in Addie’s shoes. She is a Christian, placed in unfamiliar surroundings, with people who aren’t Christians, and she feels God leading her to share her faith with them. How does she do this? How can she do this? Esther in the Bible is a similar story. She was put in a position for such a time as this. God put her there to do His work. By faith, Ester and Addie step out and talk about God’s love. We know how Ester’s story turns out. You’ll have to read First Date to see how Addie’s story turns out. You won’t be disappointed!
Krista McGee writes with wit, charm, and her love for God shines through this book. Sit back, relax, and enjoy getting to know Addie, Kara, and the other Book of Love contestants. These characters are very well developed; you think about them after the story has ended. Hopefully, there will be other stories coming out about these other characters! I would love to read more by this author. I received this book from Booksneeze in exchange for a review.
