6th grader Mitch Mathis moves from the midwest to Hollywood, California with his parents.  Everyone in his school is involved with some facet or another with the entertainment business.  On a whim he auditions for a tv commercial and lands the part.  Thrust into the spotlight, Mitch begins to attend cool parties, learn to “work” the room and start signing autographs.  When he realizes that he’s neglected his friends and become someone he doesn’t like he ultimately decides he would rather be a normal kid then be a part of Hollywood stardom.  Williams creates a hilarious comic read that readers will enjoy.  The story is fast paced and has some unexpected twists and turns.
