Johanna Morrigan- aka Dolly Wilde-has what most teenagers could only wish for: her own flat in London and a job writing for the coolest music magazine. But Johanna is miserable. Her best friend and man of her dreams John Kite has just made it big in the hot new BritPop scene. Suddenly John exists on another plane of reality: that of the Famouses.

Never one to sit on the sidelines, Johanna hatches a plan: she will write a monthly column, a manual to the famous, where she analyzes fame, its power, its dangers, and its amusing aspects. In stories, girls never win the girl—they are won. Well, Johanna will re-write the stories, and is determined to win John through her writing.

But as Johanna’s own fame grows, an unpleasant one-night stand she had comes back to haunt her. How can she deal with public sexual shaming? Especially when she figures out that a new friend is now using her?
