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.
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 the most about who she is . . . and who she was meant to be.
The story is fun and light-hearted. It's like a modern fairy tale story. I like the pace of the story, not too fast and not slow at all. I like to see how much Addy has grow throughout the whole audition period. And she's lucky to have Kara as her roommate. Despite all the spotlight, Jonathan surprisingly is a humble and kind gentleman. The moments between Jonathan and Addy are sweet and adorable.
I like the way the story is being tell. Slowly, more and more about Abby and her past are being unfolded. The entries from her mother's journals are very touching. And it's interesting to see how the author has included the religion element in the story. It's very refreshing. I enjoy reading it very much.
I rate it 4 out of 5 stars.
