Fresh off her latest friendship breakup, shes spent most of her summer break on her own. So when Macys mother decides to go back to college three states away, Macy jumps on the chance to move--anything for a fresh start. But Macys new home isnt exactly what she expected. Her mothers never around and her dads always working. Lonelier than ever, Macy sets her sights on finding a new best friend. When she meets Brynn, whos smart and kind and already seems to have her whole life figured out--down to her future as a high fashion model--Macy knows shes it. The only problem is that Brynn already has a BFF and, as everyone knows, you can only have one. Resorting to old habits, Macy turns one small lie into a whole new life--full of fantastic fashion and haute couture--but it isnt long before everything really falls apart. Ultimately, Macy must determine how to make things right and be true to herself--rather than chasing after the person she thinks shes supposed to be.
