Meet twenty-two-year-old Cherry Pye, a pop star since she was fourteen - and about to attempt a comeback from her latest drug-and-alcohol disaster. Now meet Cherry again: in the person of her secret double Ann DeLusia. Ann portrays Cherry whenever the singer is too 'indisposed' - wasted - to go out in public. And it is Ann-mistaken-for-Cherry who is kidnapped from a South Beach hotel by obsessed paparazzo Bang Abbott. Now the challenge for Cherry's handlers (uber-stage mother; horndog record producer; nipped, tucked, and Botoxed twin publicists; weed whacker-wielding bodyguard) is to rescue Ann while keeping her existence a secret from Cherry's public - and from Cherry herself. The situation is more complicated than they know. Ann has had a bewitching encounter with Skink - the unhinged former governor of Florida living wild in a mangrove swamp - and now he's heading for Miami to find her. Will Bang Abbott achieve his fantasy of a lucrative private photo session with Cherry Pye? Will Cherry sober up in time to lip-synch her way through her concert tour? Will Skink track down Ann DeLusia before Cherry's motley posse does?
