Poor Joanne. She's failing school, her parents have grounded her and worst of all, Rob has ditched her for another girl.
But Joanne's got a secret - she's a natural actress. Who else but Brooke Shields could win Rob back? And who but Barbara Walters could get an A in journalism class? Joanne can play them both and lots of other stars as well. And as long as she's acting, things go great.
Now Joanne thinks she's got her problems licked... all she has to do is play a part. But then she meets Cliff and he wants to know the real Joanne. But will she be able to drop her "act" and let Cliff see her secret self?
