Her whole life, Alexia Garcia has been told that she looks just like pop star Kari Kingsley, and one day when Alexia?s photo filters through the Internet, she?s offered a job to be Kari?s double. This would seem like the opportunity of a lifetime, but Alexia?s mother has always warned her against celebrities.
Rebelliously, Alexia flies off to L.A. and gets immersed in a celebrity life. Not only does she have to get used to getting anything she wants, she romances the hottest lead singer on the charts, and finds out that her own father is a singing legend. Through it all, Alexia must stay true to herself, which is hard to do when you are pretending to be somebody else!

Janette Rallison is the author of the bestselling All’s Fair in Love, War and High School and a number of popular romantic comedies. She lives in Chandler, Arizona.From School Library Journal:
Gr 7-10–Half-Latina Alexia Garcia lives in Morgantown, WV, with her mother, a hotel housekeeping supervisor, and her grandmother. Now 18, she has long wondered about the identity of her father. After seeing Lexi's picture on the web, rock star Kari Kingsley's publicist asks Lexi to play Kari in concerts so she can complete an album. The reason that the teens so closely resemble one another is gradually revealed: they have the same father, a famous musician who was attracted to Lexi's mother because she reminded him of his deceased first wife and never knew she had his child. Although Lexi doubts the ethics of subbing for Kari in concerts, she does it to meet her dad. Being a stand-in is hard work and Lexi can barely leave the publicist's apartment–no one is to know she exists. That doesn't stop her from running into her idol, Grant Delray, and they fall in love. Tabloids run pictures of Lexi (in her Kari persona) with Grant, and she ends up in major trouble. When she finally encounters her dad, he's furious that an imposter has been playing his daughter. Amazingly, everything is tied up neatly. This novel doesn't do anything new with the fantasy of becoming a celebrity or being the daughter of one. It's pleasant but convoluted and its feel-good ending doesn't ring true.Tina Zubak, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, PA
