I loved this book. Not only was it a great read with a fun story and interesting characters, but the book had a great message behind it. I highly recommend it to any teens who want a cute romance story :)
Addy Davidson has been chosen as the representative for her school in the new TV reality show, The Book of Love, with the prize being a date to the senior prom with Jonathon Jackson – the son of the President of the United States. Addy is an orphan, bought up by her Uncle Mike, and although she is a Christian, like many of us, she is nervous about sharing her faith, so she doesn’t want to be on TV representing her Christian school, least of all on a show where the ‘prize’ is a date with such a public figure. But as the competition progresses and she starts getting to know Jonathon, Addy finds herself wanting to stay on the show. First Date is a fun YA retelling of the story of Esther. I had to remind myself of this a couple of times when the plot seemed to veer off into overly-contrived situations – but situations that were consistent with the Biblical story. First Date has celebrities, reality TV, vote-offs, tears, nasty contestants, an even nastier host … all in all, quite a few lessons about the nature of 'reality' TV, underpinned by a clear Christian message.
