Seventeen-year-old Char loves music, but never considered a singing career until her singing went viral online. Now instead of participating in the Gay Lesbian Alliance, Char devotes herself to seeking fame. When she is viciously bullied online she finds an app that supports victims of cyber-bullying.

Naming herself @Charming, Char gets to know the app's creator, @Cinders. @Cinders inspires Char to reconsider her obsession with online fame. When @Cinders turns out to be Ash, a girl at Char's school, Char must show Ash how much she means to her.

Charming is a modern retelling of Cinderella, where Prince Charming is a girl who learns the nature of fame and love.
