9781401684891: Starring Me

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.

“Spunky chick meets dreamy boy and auditions for a teen version of Saturday Night Live. What’s not to love?” ―Shannon Dittemore, author of Angel Eyes

“Ripe with the glitz and glamour of celebrity, the drive of ambition, and the angst of peer pressure, Starring Me is the perfect book for teenage girls.” ―Nicole O’Dell, author of The Diamond Estates series

From School Library Journal:

Gr 7-11-Former reality show contestant and aspiring actress Kara McKormick, 17, has been chosen to participate in a monthlong audition to star in a new teen variety show with a secret celebrity cohost. The contestants are to live together while, unknown to them, their characters and religious qualities are being assessed as much as their acting abilities. Kara does not know that her potential costar is Chad Beacon, the America's Next Star winner, whom she can't stop thinking about since she met him at the White House with her friend Addy, who is in a relationship with the president's son. Chad is enamored of Kara, but because she is not a Christian, he can't see a future with her. Chad's devoted family assistant, Flora, goes undercover as the housemother to evaluate the girls' potential for the variety show and as a potential friend for Chad, and the relationship Kara forms with her is central to the plot development. Many people will root for Kara's conversion to Christianity and watch it unfold in an organic way. This story is well paced and easy to read. Scripts from Kara's many auditions are included. In general, this novel provides moral guidelines for youngsters in an increasingly reality-TV-filled world. The "Reading Group Guide" in the back matter states that the book is "loosely based on the story of Isaac and Rebekah in Genesis 24."-Danielle Farinacci, Sacred Heart Cathedral Preparatory, San Francisco, CAα(c) Copyright 2011.
