Grace's dream is to become an actress. Her parents, her brother and sister, her best friend, and her new boyfriend seem determined to discourage her.
After a successful experience at a summer drama camp, Grace sets her mind to changing her image. She plans to make her junior year one to remember. She plans to get a serious boyfriend for the first time, and along comes Hunter, one of the most popular boys in school. Her next plan involves trying out for the school play. Again, success--she lands the lead role in "Grease."
It seems that Grace's dreams are coming true. However, with success comes challenge. There is a rocky relationship with her parents. Her best friend appears to be unable to cope with Grace's success. Tom and Sonia, Grace's older siblings, bring their own problems into the picture. Will these obstacles derail Grace's newfound fame and happiness?
