Hey everyone! A few weeks ago I read Starring Me by Krista McGee, which was an ARC I received from NetGalley and I am here today to give a review on it. Also, it come out on July 10th! Let's get started!

Goodreads Summary

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.

I thought this book was a cutie summer read. It didn't really captivate me, or make me feel anything, and the topic of religion wasn't really discussed maturely. The characters were fun and well developed, but they all seemed very cliched. They were teenagers who really had everything laid out for them; they were on TV shows, and got these great auditions, who were like professional actors. They weren't very believable.

Also, the topic of religion was very cliched as well. They made it so that the main character, Kara, didn't believe in God, but all events fell into place, so that by the last chapter she thought God was amazing and wonderful and there for her and she got the role and the boy hurrah!! It was so predictable and it got on my nerves.

The only thing good about this book was the witty dialogue when there was some, which wasn't very often. But i didn't really enjoy this book. It wasn't something that I would read again, and I wouldn't recommend it.

1/5 stars.
