Holly has everything it takes to be a star—the voice, the dream, and the dedication—but she lacks the means to break away from her humble Texas upbringing. Then she gets the chance to attend a prestigious art and music school on the East Coast and her future suddenly looks bright though she must compete for the star spot with the snobby Angela. Luckily Holly has the support of her mother and her roommate Ditz who prove that being a star has nothing to do with fame and everything to do with faith, family, and friends.
