First Date

FIRST DATE
By Krista McGee
When 17 year old Addy Davidson is picked by her principal to represent her school in the new reality show The Book of Love Addy is anything but thrilled.  Addy has avoided the spotlight and has instead focused on her school work and getting into college.  But everyone thinks this is a great chance for Addy.  Principal Lawrence feels Addy would bring attention to their struggling school.  Uncle Mike feels that Addy would be a light for Christ just as her parents were.  Addy’s BFF Lexi thinks any chance to appear on TV is fantastic and with the chance to possibly date Jonathon Jackson, Addy would be a fool to turn it down.
But Addy is determined to get off the show as quickly as possible and with 99 other girls trying to stay on it should be no problem.  But Addy’s attempts to get kicked off back-fire and make her America’s Overnight Sweetheart!  Unlike the other girls Addy doesn’t try to be something she’s not.  
As the show progresses Addy becomes friends with Kara McKormick, one of the other contestants; Eric, one of the assistant directors; and even Jonathon Jackson the President’s son!  But no matter what Addy tries the other girls and the show’s host Hank Banner are openly hostile towards Addy when the camera is not rolling.
Can Addy find the strength to depend on God and share her faith or will The Book of Love becomes Addy’s Book of Missed Opportunity?
First Date is a modern retelling of the book of Esther.  When a threat against President Jackson is uncovered a Mordecai / Haman situation arises.  First Date is an interesting story that shows God will take us out of our comfort zone so that we may be used by Him for a greater good!
