Starring Me - A Review

Kara McCormick is one of ten girls selected to audition in a new teen variety show. The girls don't know who their co-star will be. The ten girls spend a month living together in a house with an eccentric housemother while going through a series of different auditions. Chad Beacon, popular teen singer, wants to expand his horizons and try his hand at acting and writing in addition to singing. With his parents, he's agreed to allow family friend Flora supervise the auditions of the girls who will be his co-star. The biggest condition that the family has is that the girl be a Christian. Kara isn't too sure about God, but He's sure about her. Will she allow the pettiness of the girls in the house to influence her and change her or will the people that God has placed in her life, including Chad, draw her to a forever relationship with the God of the universe?

I was delighted to see a book about Kara. I'd met her in Krista McGee's first book, First Date where Kara was a minor character. Kara is a delightful, spunky, and not afraid to admit that she's skeptical of God. Chad's faith is strong, and it's nice to see a teen male who respects the wishes of his parents. This book was a delightful read and I look forward to Krista McGee's third book due out in the winter.

I recommend this to teens, preteens, and anyone who enjoys a fun story.

I received this book for free from Thomas Nelson's Booksneeze program for the purpose of reviewing. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Rating - 5 stars
