Allison Brinkley discovers that a carefully weighed decision to pack up and move her family from suburban Dallas to the glittery chaos of Manhattan may have been more complicated than she and her husband initially thought. After a humiliating call from the principal’s office and the loss of the job she was counting on, Allison begins to accept that New York may not suit her after all. When Allison has a fender-bender, she is led to the penthouse apartment of a luxurious Central Park West building and encounters Carter Reid, a famous pop star who has been cast in a new Broadway musical. Through this brush with stardom, Allison embraces a unique and unexpected opportunity that helps her find her way in the heart of Manhattan.

Kate Pearson finds herself dumped, out of luck, and out of steam. It seems as if her characteristic ambition and smarts have taken a break. Her friends are at a loss, while her practical sister, Angela, pushes every remedy she can think of. Miraculously Kate lands a job in the admissions department at the prestigious Hudson Day school, and learns there’s no time for self-pity or nonsense during the height of the admission season. Meanwhile, Kate’s sister and her closest friends find themselves keeping secrets, hiding boyfriends, dropping bombshells, and fighting each other on how to keep Kate on her feet --- and Kate’s oddly charming and irritatingly handsome neighbor is more than he seems.
