Synopsis

All schoolgirl Mary Katherine Gallagher wants in life is a kiss. Not just any kiss, mind you--a big time, hold-your-breath-'til-you-think-you're-going-to-faint, bona fide Hollywood-style kiss. But no matter how hard she tries, no one will kiss her. And then it hits her. Mary Katherine realizes the only way she is ever going to get what she wants is to become just like the people she sees getting those kisses in the movies. When Catholic Teen magazine sponsors a talent contest to be an extra in a movie with positive moral values--she sees the opportunity to make her dreams come true. After all, everyone wants to kiss you when you're a SUPERSTAR!
