My Review: Kara has the dream to be a star--on tv. When an opportunity comes her
way, she jumps on it. What she doesn't realize is that she's really
auditioning for something else.
This is a Christian fiction novel
that had moments of little preachy parts, but most of the story was
great. Kara has never been religious and it seems that she's ready to
be, since almost everyone she comes in contact with is. She's a
genuinely nice, caring girl. Chad is a star who is very religious, yet
he can't get his mind off of Kara. I thought it was a little weird for
him to decide and stick to his dating policy, especially being a
celebrity, but hey...it worked. There were some mean, catty, deceiving
girls and I loved the descriptions of how snotty they were. To buy this one, click here
