Scarlett Martin’s life is spinning out of control.

Obsessed

Eric. Eric. Eric. She can’t get her mind off of him. She watches his pizza commercial constantly, and not even her best friend Dakota can snap her out of it. But soon, business picks up at work when her boss signs a new client.


Little Miss Perfect

Chelsea is a little-miss-perfect Broadway star. Her mother controls her life, monitoring her eating habits and forcing her to stay in perfect shape. But Scarlett’s responsibilities go beyond Chelsea. She’s in charge of spying on Chelsea’s brother, Max, who is new to Scarlett’s school. But his trouble-making ways is making Scarlett’s life miserable.


Crime and Punishment

Meanwhile, Scarlett’s brother Spencer is going through a dry spell. After one failed audition after another, he plans to give up acting…until he lands the role of his career. He gets a part on the number one hit drama Crime and Punishment. But his character is controversial. One change in the script and he instantly becomes Manhattan’s most hated.
