Jamie longs to be popular, but she never dreams of the fame that is suddenly hers after a private journal entry accidentally finds its way to her teacher, then a publisher, and her career as a bestselling author is kicked into motion. In no time at all she is caught in a swirl of book signings, power lunches, and photo ops. And the hottest guy in school finally knows her name! Could it get any better than this?

Girls who love wish-fulfillment fantasies like The Princess Diarieswill relish Jamie's foray into a world of glamour and glitz, which she ultimately decides is not nearly as satisfying as just being herself with her BFFs (best friends forever).

About the Author:

Julia DeVillers lives in Columbus, Ohio.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

High school freshman's manuscript sells to Parker Press following a frenzied bidding war. According to a Parker spokesperson, the manuscript by Whittaker High School student Jameson Bartlett will be the lead title on its summer list. . . . I dropped the pager on the desk.
Buzzing, my head is buzzing. . . .
"I think she's going to pass out!" I vaguely heard Malik say. "Stand back, everybody!"
"Jamie, breathe!" Harmony said.
Breathe. Breathe. Book. Sold. Lead. Title. Jameson. Bartlett. Me. Breathe.
So, yes, well. That was how I found out that I was about to be a published author. I got more details in the principal's office. Principal Litagaki and Miss Gallagher were in the office, jumping up and down. No, seriously, you never would have known it was a principal and an English teacher. They looked like they were trying out for Poms. They gave me the scoop. The agent had sent my story to some big publishing companies. They got all excited over it. They had an instant bidding war, which is what happens when more than one publisher wants to buy your book. So there I was in school all day, worrying about gym, not knowing I was involved in some publishing battle. I felt kind of like Helen of Troy.
Un. Be. Lievable.
