Devon, the hottest chart-topping sixteenyear- old diva, has just landed in the south of France to film her Hollywood movie debut. With her French Caribbean beauty and ethereal voice, she aims to secure her newest crown—blockbuster box office—but she discovers sometimes a girl can’t get by without a little help from her friends. So when she befriends Livia Romero, the producer’s insanely gorgeous and insanely spoiled daughter, whose slammin’ new body is thanks to dropping two hundred pounds via stomach-stapling surgery; and Casey West, a personal assistant to the rival star, an entourage is born. And the paparazzi can’t get enough of them.
