Abstract:

"Meet twenty-two-year-old Cherry Pye, a pop star since she was fourteen - and about to attempt a comeback from her latest drug-and-alcohol disaster. Now meet Cherry's 'undercover stunt double', Ann DeLusia. Ann portrays Cherry whenever the singer is too wasted to go out in public. And it is Ann-mistaken-for-Cherry who is kidnapped from a South Beach hotel by obsessed paparazzo Bang Abbott. Cherry's handlers want to rescue Ann while keeping her existence a secret. The situation is more complicated than they know. Ann has had a bewitching encounter with Skink - the unhinged former governor of Florida - and he's heading for Miami to find her. Will Skink track down Ann DeLusia before Cherry's motley posse does? Will Cherry sober up in time to lip-synch her way through her concert tour? Stay tuned ..."--Page [4] cover.
