First Date by Krista MeGee

Book Description:  Addy Davidson is the last girl in the country who wants to be on the new reality TV show to win a date to prom 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.

My Review:  I loved this read!  A quick, light but filled with "meat" read!  
This is a modern day Esther story.  Addy is a great, all American girl and the last girl who wants to be on a reality show AND, to boot, a show she never even watches! But Tampa Christian School in Florida is randomly selected to send a student for competition on First Date, a reality show in which the grand prize is attending prom with Jonathon Jackson, the president's son. Tampa Christian's principal picks the quiet, academic Addy Davidson, a reluctant contestant at best, who agrees so the financially struggling school might get national attention but still hopes to be one of the first girls cut. 
Addy is the orphaned daughter of missionaries and lives a relatively quiet life with her uncle.  She goes to school, studies hard, leads a Bible study and has a wonderful BFF.
Jonathon, is the First Son, the son of the president.  Addy isn't very nice when her first impressions are presented on TV, for all of America to see.
After Addy meets Jonathon and they "hang" together for awhile, Addy begins to think that he isn't so bad after all. Well, Jonathon is cute, well mannered, and funny.  What's not to  like.
Addy never really questioned God's plan for her life but like Esther can she make a difference in another world, another place and in some other person's life?
This is a fun YA read but some adult readers will enjoy it too!  A great book for a rainy afternoon!  Or just a "smile card" to cheer someone.
