Starring Me, by Krista McGee was such a fun read! It was definitely written for the younger generation, teens and young adults, but I truly enjoyed it. When you have a busy schedule and just need something fun to read, it is nice to be able to pick up a book like this that is fun, fresh, and easy!
Kara McCormick (also a character in the First Date, starring Kara‘s friend Addy Davidson, which I read and enjoyed) is trying to get started with an acting career and has the opportunity of a lifetime to do so with a new Comedy Show. When she gets the chance to audition, she heads to Florida (home of her friend Addy) and begins the audition with many girls who have their noses stuck up in the air (to put it nicely). Kara stays true to herself throughout the auditions, and never gets a “big head”.
Chad Beacon, who just won America’s Next Star, a singing competition similar to American Idol is going to be the male lead in this new comedy show, even though many say he is throwing away his career. His parents want a Christian girl to be his co-star, and the search begins.
With whit and humor, the book unfolds. I was able to make pretty solid predictions throughout, however, I was engaged in the story the entire time. The characters are very enjoyable and you find yourself wanting the best for each of the characters.
I don’t want to give anything away. If you want a fun read or have a teenager who simply is searching for a newfound relationship with God, this is a great book for you or them.
Thank you Booksneeze for the opportunity to read this book.
