Book Review: Starring Me by Krista McGee

****--4 stars.
Kara McKormick is told she’s auditioning to star in a new teen variety show. 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. 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.
 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 worked. There were some mean, catty, deceiving girls and I loved the descriptions of how snotty they were. To buy this one, click  here .
