My Rating: 2/5
Kara McKormick is told she's auditioning to star in a new teen variety show. But it's what she isn't told that could change her life.
The feisty New Yorker moves to sunny Orlando to participate in a month-long audition, where she'll live with nine other contestants and an eccentric housemother. Kara knows that the show already has a big-time celebrity lined up for the co-host, but she doesn't know who it is.
Chad Beacon quickly rose to fame after winning America's Next Star, but he doesn't want his entire career to be about singing. There is so much more he wants to do-like act. The new variety show sounds like the perfect next step for him, but his parents want him to have a co-star who shares his faith since they'll be spending so much time together.
Acting is high on Kara's priority list. But a relationship with God? Not so much. In fact, she's tried to stay away from anything religious. But God is after Kara's heart and He's put people in her life who are showing her there's far more to Christianity than rules and judgment.
And just when it seems that Kara's going to have to give up her acting dream, God reveals that she may have a starring role after all-in a story so big only He could write it.
When I saw this on NetGalley, I thought I would like to read about a girl trying to get in a teen variety show. I seems like a good read. I decided to read this book because I been reading a lot of paranormal romance books. I thought this would be a great book.
In the beginning was about Chad and his parents trying to agree with the producer about picking the costar for Chad's T.V. show. His parents wanted to choose the girl. His parents wanted a girl who was Christian. The producer wasn't to fond of the idea but he made it work. The idea was to hold an audition for the girls who wanted to be on the T.V show. They decided to keep the secret about Chad being the star on the show because they wanted girls who were good at acting and singing rather then just wanting to just meet Chad. After the audition, they would choose 50 or so girls, then narrow it down to 10. When there are 10 girls picked. Chad's grandma would be staying with the girls for a month and will be picking the girl by her personality not by her talents.
Well Chad is famous because he won the 'American's Next Star'. He's a great singer but this time he wants to be an actor. He's the guy that teen girls would fall for. Pretty much like Justin Bieber. He's blond and tall. He's Christian. He obeys his parents like a loyal son. I hate how he always listen to his parents. It gets annoying sometimes because stuff like that rarely happens in real life. He also hasn't dated anyone yet. He wants the first girl to be perfect and be his wife.
Kara is one of the girls who is auditioning for the T.V show. She has a friend name Addy. Kara meet her at a show called The Book of Love. They were both trying to get a date to prom with the President's son. They didn't win. They get along really well. I feel like Kara is so boring...
Overall the book was okay. I did enjoy the book in the beginning but the ending was really slow. I would talk more about this book but I feel like it's just all negative things. This book is about God and trying to connet with him through hard times. I didn't enjoy it as much but it's alright. I think 10 to 12 years old would love this book!
