Caitlin Myers's greatest ambition is to be a star, and she can outshine anyone at her school. But then Lianne comes to town and starts to give Caitlin a run for her money, even getting top billing in the school play. So when Caitlin's offered a bit role as the bikini girl in a low-budget slasher flick, she ignores the warning bells (and her parents), lies about her age, and takes the part. It's not long before Caitlin finds herself out of her element when it comes to bossy directors and experienced film crews. Her only way out is to fess up about her age, but if she does, she'll have to come clean to her parents, her friends, and her boyfriend about the things she's done.

[Fry reading level - 3.7

"an intimate glimpse into the dangerous and damaging problems into which naive hubris can lead one."

- Karyn Huenenmann Resource Links

"A short but gritty story finds a teen stymied by her relentless pursuit of her dream... [Handman's characterizations ring true, adding even more punch to this alluring character study and morality tale... punchy and highly effective"

- Kirkus Reviews
