Elsie Baxter loves life in Australia. But following her mother's death, secrets from Elsie's past emerge. Deemed an illegal immigrant, she is sent to California to live with a family she never knew existed. Along with a Dad, a twin brother, and an insanely good-looking kind of stepbrother (it's complicated), Elsie also faces a slew of wanna-be stepmothers, and their offspring, eager to capitalise on her father's celebrity connections. With all the meddling, manipulating and invasions of privacy, all Elsie really wants is to go home. Yet when the opportunity arises, love and loyalty are put to the test, and Elsie's not so sure she can leave behind the family she never knew she always wanted.
