Today is 1/1/12.

It’s JANUARY 1st, peeps!

And my FIRST Site of the Month in 2012 is all about FIRSTS!

Meet Krista McGee! She’s a debut author with her FIRST novel hitting shelves on January 10th. And guess what it’s called?


I had the opportunity to read this little gem a few months back and adored it so much, I passed around my advance review copy to a couple gals at church.

It’s the story of a small town girl from a tiny school who gets wrangled into starring on a reality tv show. Dreading every minute of it, Addy competes for the coveted role of prom date….

…to the President’s son.

A modern retelling of Esther with lots of snark, a swoon-worthy boy, catty competitors, and genuine friendships, this is a story young adult girls will enjoy. Especially if they are fans of contemporary Christian fiction. A favorite scene of mine includes Addy, a kazoo, and well… millions of viewers.

Show a new author some love! Check out Krista’s website and get your copy of FIRST DATE.

Don’t forget to report back!

I’d love to know your thoughts.
