Miley has always strived to live a relatively normal teenage life, but when late stage entrances, exclusive shopping trips that end in brawling catfights, and ditching friends and family in favor of Hannah appearances become commonplace, Robbie Ray gives her a dose of hometown reality at her grandma's in Crowley Corners, Tenn. Unfortunately, she's followed by British reporter, Oswald. Miley is furious at being tricked into staying at her grandma's, but her bad attitude eventually gives way to resignation. She begins to reconnect with her family. As the days progress, Miley begins to understand her self-absorption.

"In the superficial world of high fashion, image is everything. Styles come and go, and the only constants are the superthin beauties who wear them. How can an ordinary girl - a slightly plump, plain-Jane from Queens - possibly fit in? If you took a moment to get to know Betty Suarez (America Ferrera), you'd see how sweet, intelligent and hard-working she is. But few people do, because in the world of high fashion Betty is the oversized peg in the petite round hole. When publishing mogul Bradford Meade (Alan Dale) hands the reigns of Mode, the bible of the fashion industry, over to his son, Daniel, he specifically hires Betty as his son's new assistant - mostly because she's the only woman in NYC Daniel won't sleep with. Though this "player" is reluctant to accept her at first, Betty's indomitable spirit and bright ideas will eventually win him over. Neither of them really knows the ins and outs of the fashion world, but the two are a formidable team against those who will do anything to see them fall."--Website
