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

I love this movie.

Okay, so I just watched this movie on Disney channel and I think it was pretty awesome. Normally, I don't like Disney channel movies, but this one is the best I've seen. It left an impact on me. It teaches you to just be yourself and don't let anybody get to you. Be yourself and you'll do fine. This movie even almost made me cry and I hardly ever cry, so for it to actually do that is pretty amazing. It left me shaking and only the really good movies with great meanings do that to me. I really liked that song "Outside Looking In" By: Jordan Pruitt. I also like the song her brother sang at the end. Does anybody know if it's a real song (as in is it out in stores)? And how I can find it? I really want to listen to it again. Oh and I thought Nick Whitaker (The guy who plays her brother) is quite cute. This movie is certainly going in my favorites and I can't wait to watch it again tomorrow. What's your opinion on it?
