Back Cover Summary[]

They say love conquers all.

Well, love's not going to conquer ME.


Maggie and her friends have been sticking by Sunny’s side since her mom’s death, but Maggie’s dad doesn’t give up the demanding goals he’s set for her, and right now he’s harping on her to finish reading the script for his newest production, "Love Conquers All", a new Romeo-and-Juliet flick. She could care less that teen star Tyler Kendall has the lead and will be at her home for the launch party.

To Maggie’s surprise, Tyler turns out to be pretty nice and when he asks her out, she agrees, but Maggie is not prepared for the paparazzi.

When their date is blasted all over the gossip columns, she is mortified and when her band is chosen to play for a scene in the movie, she wonders if the celebrity life is more than she can handle.
