After saving her friend Marta in Confessions of a So-Called Middle Child, the media is hot for Charlie's story and her star is on the rise. She's even got an agent, and just maybe, a TV show too! But, will a little white lie help make Charlie the celebrity she's dreamt of being, or will it land her in even more trouble? In her words, this is Charlie's story of "how a little tiny white lie came back and bit me on the butt, and boy, did it mess me up, bad!" Charlie has to decide between right and wrong once again, and discovers the true meaning of friendship along the way. And she develops a crush, too! "I'm Charlie C.
