Storyline

Freshman Jamie Bartlett is frustrated with high-school life. She wonders what it would be like to be popular, where Marco the hunk might notice her and snooty Sawyer would remember her name. To escape the pressures of school, Jamie retreats to her journal, weaving a tale about teen heroine Isabella ("Is"), who's beautiful, self-assured, and popular and can effortlessly zap any pesky person out of her way. When she accidentally turns in her journal as a homework project, Jamie wins a writing contest and finds her books on shelves nationwide. Suddenly she's caught up in the whirlwind of photo shoots and guest appearances and starts to lose touch with her friends and herself. Meanwhile, Is becomes a real presence for Jamie, though no one else can see her. As Jamie's stardom grows, her literary alter ego pops in and out of her life to influence every move she makes. Jamie eventually becomes disenchanted with her new life and in the end must decide whether popularity is worth sacrificing ... Written by Anonymous

Two hours of fantastic entertainment!
22 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First off, I am so sick of people saying they were "disturbed" by the fact that Jamie was talking to herself! Grow up people, the only reason she was talking to herself was because her alter ego was saying things to her. But I found this to be one of the best DCOM's to date! I found it to be far more interesting than high school musical! Kay Panabaker's acting was great and Danielle was a magnificent gem!!! And the girl who payed Sawyer was not half bad. I found this film enjoyable and fun! I thought the setting was good too. And I thought it was very funny how Is popped up everywhere and scared Jamie :)I give this film 100/5 stars :)
