She wants nothing to do with music, but when her roommate
Sophie’s twin brother Jason turns out to be the newest Korean pop music
superstar, Grace is thrust back into the world of fame. She can't stand

but they form a tenuous alliance for the sake of her friendship with
Sophie. As the months go by and Grace adjusts to her new life in Korea,

young adult novel explores what it means to experience first love and
discover who you really are in the process.
