Octavia Clairbrook-Cleeve wants just one thing: to be normal. But what chance of that at Darlinham House School - where t'ai chi, feng shui and media studies are the biggest subjects on the curriculum and where she's surrounded by 'the Darlings' - loaded 'blonde pygmies' like India, Asia, Twinkle and China! Octavia's mum - star of a U.S. sitcom - despairs of her daughter's lack of hunger to be photographed at the right party, in the right dress, on the arm of Mr Right. But then Octavia meets handsome, A-list Alexis - and finds herself catapulted suddenly, horrifyingly, right into the glossy, name-dropping world she has tried so hard to avoid. Can an oversized, under-glamorous girl like Octavia ever really belong at the top?
