Description

Fifteen-year-old Dani Truehart is living a life that is not quite her own. Driven by her mother’s desire for fame and fortune, she has spent her childhood dutifully training for a career as a pop star. On the brink of discovery, doubts begin to creep into Dani’s mind as she questions her own desire for fame, and wonders if she can trust the motivations of the adults who are driving her forward.Following a brilliant audition arranged by her vocal coach and former ’80s pop icon Martin Fox, Dani leaves her friends, family and scheming mother behind to move with Martin, who has become her legal guardian, into the Malibu compound of her new manager, Jenner Redman. The former swindling manager of Martin’s boy band, Jenner leverages what’s left of his depleted fortune to launch Dani’s career.Isolated from her life at home and trying to stay apace with her demanding schedule, Dani struggles to keep in touch with those she loves, connect to her withholding mother and find her voice as an artist
