Boy life can be boring in a
small town. Not much to do. But all that is about to change
for Jen Greenley. Up to this point, her major excitement has been
keeping her identity as the advice columnist for the school paper a secret.
She didn't mind though. That's just the type of girl she is.
Well, her life is about to change. She has been asked to escort a
new student around school. But this is no ordinary student.
This is Luke Striker! You know. The movie star. Well,
most people know him from the tv show he used to be on. The one where
he plays the minister's son. He practically grew up on television.
And Jen can't tell anyone who Luke really is. He is there to research
a new movie role and he needs to be incognito. Can you imagine?
Sure, just put some glasses on him and put him in a plaid shirt and no
one will recognize him. It just isn't that simple. Jen is not
prepared for what happens. What happens when a movie star and a small
town girl spend time together? What do you think?
Jenny Greeley, high school
junior, secretly writes an advice column in the school newspaper. Chosen
by the administration to escort a new student Lucas Smith (aka Luke Striker,
heartthrob movie star), Jenny braces herself to dislike him. However, as
Lucas/Luke researches his role in an upcoming movie, Jenny finds herself
warming to the human being. Lucas/Luke sees Jenny as a leader and encourages
her to use her position as one of the “popular” girls to make some changes.
For instance, taking Cara “Cow” under her wing as far as a much needed
change in clothes and social skills. Every girl in town – except Jenny-
is ga-ga over Luke/Lucas. But Jenny has her own love dilemmas . Read Teen
Idol by Meg Cabot to see how it all turns out. (Prepared by: Joy Danigel,
