Content - *May Contain Spoilers* Addy wants to share her faith in God but is afraid and tends to be angry with other people with her predicament of being on the show than showing his love. The host hates Addy for some reason as well as the other girls and they make that very clear to her. Addy prays for God to help her in what she is there to do.

Personal Opinion - So I started this book for something more light hearted and simple than my more intrigue, action, lots-of-little-details-that-you-have-to-remember books and found myself in a whirlpool of a charming, engaging, funny book that I couldn't put down. I found myself identifying with Addy in a number of ways; nervous about talking about my faith, shy, tend to think and not respond to the person I'm with. I also loved her friends and could identify with them as well. It was realistic and well put together. Something I didn't like was sometimes events, important events, would get jumped over and recapped latter. I would have preferred reading about them even if they made the book longer but this is definitely a book I have fallen for and will eagerly be searching out this author's next book.
