Nothing ever happens in Little, California. Which is just the way Carter Moon likes it. She's planning a low-key summer of days working at her parents' restaurant and nights spent stargazing with her best friends Alien Drake and Chloe, all while avoiding even thinking about life after senior year. But when Hollywood arrives to film a movie starring former child star turned public relations mess Adam Jakes, everything changes. Suddenly, Carter's beautiful, sleepy town has turned into a giant glittery set and, much to Carter's annoyance, everyone is starry-eyed for Adam. Carter seems to be the only girl not falling all over herself to get a glimpse of the stunning star. Which apparently makes her perfect for the secret offer of a lifetime: playing the role of Adam's girlfriend while he's in town, to improve his public image, in exchange for a hefty paycheck.

Her family really needs the money, and to her own surprise, Carter finds herself saying yes. It'll be just like any other summer job, right? But keeping a secret this big from her friends isn't easy, and it turns out, Adam isn't at all who she thought he was. Worse yet, she might actually be falling for him. As they grow closer, their relationship walks a blurry line between what's real and what's fake, and Carter must open her eyes to the scariest of unexplored worlds -- her future. Can Carter figure out what she wants out of life AND get the guy? Or are there no Hollywood endings in real life?
