I'm Mackenzie Wellesley, and I've spent my life avoiding the spotlight. But that was four million hits ago. . .Blame it on that grade school ballet recital, when I tripped and pulled the curtain down, only to reveal my father kissing my dance instructor. At Smith High, I'm doing a pretty good job of being the awkward freshman people only notice when they need help with homework. Until I send a burly football player flying with my massive backpack, and make a disastrous--not to mention unwelcome--attempt at CPR. Just when I think it's time for home schooling, the whole fiasco explodes on Youtube. And then the strangest thing happens. Suddenly, I'm the latest sensation, sucked into a whirlwind of rock stars, paparazzi, and free designer clothes. I even catch the eye of the most popular guy at school. That's when life gets really interesting. . .."Fans of Meg Cabot will find Marni's voice equally charming and endearing."--Julie Kagawa, New York Times bestselling author

I liked this book alot. Some parts were a little TOO crazy and unrealistic, but a good book overall. McKenzie is somebody we can all relate to, somebody who feels awkward and weird, somebody who will never fit in no matter how hard she trys. It's a fun little book to read on a rainy day. I read it in a short amount of time, it's not very long at all. Pick this one up, I can't read to read the sequel about her friend, Jane!

i really enjoy this book i was funny and though nothing like this has ever happen to me i can relate. i doubt something like that would happen to most people and would happen to make alot of people famous but i still love the drama, comedy and "action". :)

I really enjoyed this book, It was funny, and even though nothing like this has ever happened to me I could still relate. At points it could be a little bit predictable but not in a bad way and there were other parts that I never saw coming. I would totally recommend this book.

"I'm just doing this to clear the air," I said, but I couldn't help wondering if this was true. It was the reason I'd given myself to see him, but part o me, the stupid part, had hoped everything would work out between us. That I could go back to being his tutor and Chelsea would dump him again and the two of us would be together. Stupid. Very stupid.
