James Carter was always the boy with the geeky looks but the personality of a superstar. Girls never gave him a second glance and he was always thought of as the friend but never anything more. He always had his best friend Sophie, who conveniently lived three doors down, and his tight knit group of friends to keep him grounded. But what happens when James goes studying abroad in France for 8 months? When he returns with his new looks and new attitude will things still be as they were before? When hes fast tracked into the world of popularity can he keep his grip on what was there before he left? And dont forget the friends he had since primary school, will they still be as they were 8 months ago or will they have moved on without him?
