Addy Davidson discovers God's unexpected plans for her life when a reality TV show turns her quiet existence on its head.
The orphaned daughter of missionaries, Addy is quite content to stay in the shadows and never draw attention to herself. But when she's selected for a reality TV show to try to become the President son's prom date-a show she didn't audition for-she's suddenly in America's spotlight.
The lights, the make-up, the competitions, and the blogs discussing every move she makes all make Addy incredibly uncomfortable. But through her time at The Mansion, Addy comes to realize that first impressions aren't always right, that hiding out may not be what God had planned for her life, and that her faith should affect everything she does. It may just be that her selection wasn't random at all and that she's on this show "for such a time as this."

Hello? Have you read An All-American Girls by Meg Cabot? Well, if you haven't you should. I mean, this is so Meg Cabot. Just the part where there's the President's son ;).
This one is such a cute read. Basically, Addy got chosen by her principle to join in the reality TV show to win a prom date with the President's son. But she doesn't want to be on the show... Well, you get my point. She stays until the end of the show.
This book actually did got me going 'When is the betrayal or anything going to happen in here?'. I mean, it did but not really that pressing way that got me sitting at the edge of my seat while waiting for something good to happen.
The down side? Well... it's a little bit too religious for me. So I ended up skipping a few lines. Especially since Christian is not my religion.
But overall? It was pretty awesome :) I'd recommend it... to ones who doesn't mind with a little bit of religion in it ;)
