Review: Anna is painfully shy and almost a social outcast. She recently set a girl’s hair on fire--accidentally of course--and fills her lonely times by recreating famous movie scenes with her dog. When her father dates and then becomes engaged to one of the most famous movie stars in the world, Helena Montaine, Anna’s life is turned upside-down. She enlists Helena’s daughter, Marianne, to help her navigate this new world of paparazzi and popularity. Anna must learn some hard lessons while adapting to her new family and the limelight in this humor-laced easy read.
