First Date by Krista McGee

About the Book
The last thing Addy Davidson wants is to be on a reality TV show where the prize is a prom date with the President’s son.
She’s focused on her schoolwork so she can get a scholarship to an Ivy League college, uncomfortable in the spotlight, never been on a date, and didn’t even audition for it.
But she got selected anyway.
So she does her best to get eliminated on the very first show. Right before she realizes that the President’s son is possibly the most attractive guy she has ever seen in person, surprisingly nice, and seemingly unimpressed by the 99 other girls who are throwing themselves at him.
Addy’s totally out of her comfort zone but that may be right where God can show her all that she was meant to be.

My Thoughts
At first I didn't realize the fact that this story was based on Esther from the Bible, but as time wore on it became really evident. I could really relate to the main character, (with her dislike for attention, love of solitude and reading, and fear of sharing her faith,) which is always a cool thing to find. 
Overall the book was pretty good with likable and believable characters and I pretty cool plot, though the fact that the author was trying to make it like Esther made a couple scenes seem a little fake and forced. But in the end I did really enjoy the book and it was a really fun easy read.
I received this book free from the publisher through BookSneeze®.com
