Think you're awkward? Compared to Mackenzie Wellesley, you're as smooth as the Queen of England. Clumsiness is a way of life for this charming heroine, and what's worse, she's about to become a YouTube sensation...for tripping a football player and unnecessarily giving him mouth-to-mouth. Cassandra Morris gives a smash performance as this all-too-adorable teen. She embodies Mackenzie's wide-eyed innocence in that pitch-perfect teen cadence. Being a high school student isn't easy for anyone, and young adult listeners will certainly identify with this story while they laugh out loud at - or with? - Mackenzie.
I'm Mackenzie Wellesley, and I've spent my life avoiding the spotlight. But that was four million hits ago... Blame it on that grade school ballet recital, when I tripped and pulled the curtain down, only to reveal my father kissing my dance instructor. At Smith High, I'm doing a pretty good job of being the awkward freshman people only notice when they need help with homework. Until I send a burly football player flying with my massive backpack, and make a disastrous - not to mention unwelcome - attempt at CPR.
Just when I think it's time for home schooling, the whole fiasco explodes on YouTube. And then the strangest thing happens. Suddenly, I'm the latest sensation, sucked into a whirlwind of rock stars, paparazzi, and free designer clothes. I even catch the eye of the most popular guy at school. That's when life gets really interesting...
