It is time for a FIRST Wild Card Tour book review! If you wish to join the FIRST blog alliance, just click the button. We are a group of reviewers who tour Christian books. A Wild Card post includes a brief bio of the author and a full chapter from each book toured. The reason it is called a FIRST Wild Card Tour is that you never know if the book will be fiction, non~fiction, for young, or for old…or for somewhere in between! Enjoy your free peek into the book!
You never know when I might play a wild card on you!

AND NOW…THE FIRST CHAPTER:
I loved this book every bit as much as Premiere, book 1 in this awesome new series for young adults. Once again, we are taking back to the runway and the life of Erin and her wannabe actress sister,Paige, and the lessons are flowing once again, with trying to live a Godly life in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Hollywood. The sisters are still their happy, loving self, but are dealing with the issues of everyday Hollywood life. Once again, Melody Carlson does not pack this full of issues like pregnancy or sex, but she fills it with lots of drama, romance, family and God, to help show young adults that you can live a life for God and make it in the fast paced, hectic world of Hollywood and acting.
This book is definitely another 5 star read. It is easy to read- I read it one sitting, easy to follow-it could be read as a stand alone if you didn’t get to read book 1, and is perfect for young adults AND adults. There is a strong spiritual message as well as wonderful lessons in life that we could all learn from and take to heart. I am super excited to continue to read this series and am anxiously awaiting the release of book 3, Rendezvous!
