Review: Starring Me by Krista McGee

Kara McKormick is told she's auditioning to star in a new teen variety show. But 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. In fact, she's tried to stay away from anything religious. 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:
I was not aware this was a book #2, well I guess it doesnt have to be because it really stands on its own, but since reading there was a book before it where we were introduced to Kara and learned about Addy's relationship with the President's son, I want to read it! 

This story is without a doubt Christian which is obvious from the description. Chad wants to break away from what made him famous but he needs the approval of his parents. Their one demand? A Christian female counterpart. 

Kara find herself in direct competition with a wide variety of girls for a dream position. What she doesnt expect are for so many people around her to focus on God and Christianity. Not only does she have a chance for the job of a lifetime, she also has a budding relationship. As she begins to explore Christianity, she embarks on a spiritual journey she wasn't expecting.

With several underlying teen topics, this is a great YA Christian Read!
