When thirteen-year-old actress Maddy Brown moves into town and picks her as a friend, Holly is thrilled, since her best friend has just moved away. But now Holly wants more than ever to trade in Paisley for a more traditional mom. Even though Maddy's popularity can pull Holly into the "in" crowd at school, does Maddy really want her as a friend, or is she just acting? And what is the real reason she moved to their town? One thing is certain: Maddy's friendship will be lost if she discovers that Holly Gerard is only the tinker's daughter.
