Eighteen-year-old Evie Jones is poised to be Hollywood’s next big movie star, following in the footsteps of her über famous grandma, Evelyn Conaway. That is, until a friend’s betrayal ultimately leads to Evie being fired and blacklisted.
A public appearance with Evelyn Conaway, AKA Gigi, is just the thing to save Evie’s floundering career. But the week Evie plans to present Gigi with a major award in front of Hollywood’s elite, Gigi, a recluse who’s been out of the limelight for almost 20 years, disappears.
With time running out and her comeback on the line, Evie reluctantly enlists the help of the last person to see Gigi before she disappeared: Milo Williams, a cute musician whom Evie isn’t sure she can trust. As Evie and Milo spend a wild week together in New York City searching for Gigi, romance and adventure abound, and Evie makes some new discoveries about Gigi, but most importantly, about herself.
