Fifteen year old Zara Renee Coleman collides with fame head-on, when she is taken into foster care in tragic circumstances, after her parents develop severe psychiatric conditions.
Being a famous foster kid who receives more global media attention than Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift combined, is not as easy as it looks. Zara's face is everywhere - on the cover of every newspaper, magazine and on every TV screen around the world; so as well as having good press, she is forced to deal with a swarm of negative comments concerning her mum and dad's mental illnesses. Coupled with this is the inner turmoil she has to cope with, whilst trying to adapt to a new way of life with a new foster carer.
If that isn't enough, the notorious school bullies Frankie Harris and Jodie Mark envy her newfound popularity and declare war at Eleanor May High, to show Zara who's really boss!
Her only real comfort are the fans - The Zedonians, who she chats to online and is mobbed by in the streets!
As she learns how to swallow the backlash from the jealous girls at school and begins to settle down with her new foster mother Rachel, Zara hopes for a brighter future. Can she leave her tragic past behind? Will she ever escape the evil school bullies? And can she make friends and find a decent boyfriend in the new area in which she lives? Most importantly, can she go back to achieving straight A's again, to earn a place at Cambridge University?
Join Zara on this incredible journey as she starts a new life, searches for love and discovers who she really is.
