"First Date" by Krista McGee
Aimed at the younger YA, "First Date" by Krista McGee is unexpectedly delightful. It is so much fun that I devoured it in one sitting. Yes this book talks about God, but it does it in such an underhanded way that it is simply a pleasure to read it. This means you do not have to be a Christian to read this book. If you like a sweet romance mixed with wonderful characters that will grab hold of your heart, then you will love this quick read. The orphaned daughter of missionaries, Addy Davidson is not like your typical teenage girl but she is someone I would love to meet in real life. Unlike every girl her age Addy does not want to join a reality television show even if the winner gets to go to the prom with the President's son. She would rather live her quiet life in a small town and not draw to much attention to herself. But God has unexpected plans for Addy and as uncomfortable as the spot light makes her she might just be touching more people than she knows. This is a wonderful light read that is written in such a beautiful way.
