What happens when a bratty teenage star and a hardworking waitress get a taste of each other's worlds? Featuring the bestselling Dyan Sheldon at her snarky, entertaining best.
Paloma Rose is sixteen and already a major TV star. She has money, franchises, adoring fans and an agent and parents who are dependent on her success to sustain their very comfortable lives. But all that could come to an end when Paloma becomes more famous for her bad behavior than for her acting, and her show's sponsors threaten to cancel the upcoming season if things don't improve.
Meanwhile, Paloma's worried agent happens upon Oona Ginness working in a coffee shop. Maybe she's not as tall or as blonde as Paloma, but small details aside, they really might be twins. So a plan is born: what if they sent Paloma to a boot camp to become a better person, and put the malleable and much nicer Oona in her place? Oona thinks it's a stupid idea, but the money is hard to resist, given her family's dire circumstances. What does she have to lose?
But plans don't always work out the way they're supposed to...."
