So when Demi, the coolest girl in school, invites Holly on a makeover shopping spree, she jumps at the chance. Even Cass can see that Holly is stretching her wings. But will she fly or fall? Before long, Holly learns that appearances can be deceptive and friendship can blossom in unexpected places...
