First Date

One of the most memorable verses in the book of Esther for me is “for such a time as this.” What would it be like to be chosen for a special task–a task that would glorify God, and yet take extreme courage and faith to complete? In Krista McGee’s book, First Date, Addy Davidson gets the chance to find out.

Addy, whose missionary parents were killed when she was just a little girl, lives a quiet life with her uncle. She likes to be organized and study–her big dream in life is to go to an Ivy League school. Addy does not want to be in the spotlight.

So, when she is chosen by her principal to represent her school in a Bachelor type television show where the son of the president will choose his prom date, Addy is not happy, to say the least. But her principal and her uncle persuade her that this is a task that she was chosen for. She must represent her school (a Christian school in need of funds) and her faith on national tv.

Of course, Addy ends up falling for the handsome son of the president, who isn’t as shallow as she assumed him to be. There are moments of humor throughout the book that made me laugh out loud, but also moments of bare honesty as Addy struggles with living out her faith.

I really enjoyed this book, and I highly recommend it for teens. It’s a fun read with a great message.

PS. I received a free e-copy of this book from Booksneeze in return for my honest review.
