From the book jacket...
"I'm going to have to come up with something brilliant to get you back into the public's good graces. I have no idea what, but trust me. I'll think of something.
Well that's what Theodora pays her agent $100,000 a year for, isn't it? Theodora Twist is the girl everyone want sto be. She's Hollywood's hottest young actress. Producers court her. Fans mob her. And the tabloids cover everything.
Emily's life is boring with a capital B. She's a sixteen-year-old nobody to everyone, including her own mother. The only thing remotely interesting about Emily? She lives in Theodora Twist's former house. And she's about to get Twisted.
How? On a reality show meant to clean up Theodora's party girl rep -- with Emily's family as host. For Theodora, it's just another role. But Emily is in panic mode. For her, this isn't just a part... it's her life."

As the year progresses and finals exams loom, the three girls experience various ups and downs: Nat finds that all is not smooth sailing in her relationship while Sofia thrives in hers, and Lise struggles with an eating disorder that leaves her isolated and afriad."
