Kara McKormick is told sheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s auditioning to star in a new teen variety show. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s what she isnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t told that could change her life.
The feisty New Yorker moves to sunny Orlando to participate in a month-long audition, where sheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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 doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know who it is.
Chad Beacon quickly rose to fame after winning AmericaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Next Star, but he doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t want his entire career to be about singing. There is so much more he wants to doÃ¢â‚¬â€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 theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be spending so much time together.
Acting is high on KaraÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s priority list. But a relationship with God? Not so much. But God is after KaraÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s heart and HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s put people in her life who are showing her thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s far more to Christianity than rules and judgment.
And just when it seems that KaraÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s going to have to give up her acting dream, God reveals that she may have a starring role after allÃ¢â‚¬â€in a story so big only He could write it.
