From the coauthor of Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist comes "a slick and enjoyably glitzy read" (BCCB) that captures the struggles and glories of an ordinary teenage girl's climb to celebrity. When fifteen-year-old Wonder Blake is plucked from her job at the Dairy Queen and given the chance to become a teen idol, it seems like a dream come true--even if it wasn't her dream, but her older sister Lucky's. Lucky was on her way to becoming a pop star when she died, and Wonder and her family are still trying to recover from their loss. Offered a recording contract, Wonder jumps at the chance to escape from a dead-end town, her fractured family, and worst of all, high school. Suddenly she has it all: a hot new look, a chart-busting hit single, a tour opening up for superstar Kayla. But stardom isn't all glamour--it's also lots of work. And maybe what Wonder really wants is as simple as a guy who likes her for herself. As Wonder rises through the pop-princess star-making machine, she also learns that there's a price for fame--and that maybe being an ordinary teenage girl isn't so bad after all.
