Callie, an 11-year-old girl from Manchester, loves to sing. She spends a lot of time in her bedroom pretending to be Konnie Roxx, her idol and favorite pop-punk princess, but only when her father and two younger brothers are not at home. Callie dreams of being a pop star one day but suddenly becomes shy when someone wants to hear her sing.
One day Callie is singing but stops when she hears the front door close. Someone has come home. She is called downstairs to meet Valeria, her father’s friend. But the surprises don’t stop there. Callie is stunned when Dad announces that Valeria will be her stepmother, or “bonus mum,” as Valeria prefers. Dad suggests that Callie and Valeria go on a trip to spend time together.
