When he and his girlfriend, Abby, part ways, Carter can't help but think his summer is ruined.Things start to look up after he's unexpectedly cast in an independent film opposite the world's biggest tween sensation, Hilary Idaho. With Hollywood knocking on his door, Carter gets a taste of the good life. Suddenly, his small town, friends, and family don't seem as great as they used to. As tends to happen when Carter is around, things spirals out of control, and he begins to fear that he's not the "somebody" he thinks he is but more of the "nobody" he's pretty sure he always has been. But maybe, with the help of a few friends, he'll start to see things in a whole new light. Find out if Carter goes Hollywoodor Hollywood goes Carter.
