Instead of wallowing in despair when her famous boyfriend (Shotaro) dumps her after using her to make it big, Kyoko goes to work for the rival showbiz company to become even more famous than Sho. Unfortunately, Kyoko doesn't know the first thing about acting and bumbles her way through by sheer luck. The chemistry and romance builds with each new volume. The illustrations are great and tell the story as well as the words. This is a very light, easy read sure to please many.
