Polly Plays Her Part (Starmaker's Club) Synopsis

Polly's dad is busy with his girlfriend, constantly cooing over their new baby, Jake. Polly's mum is so busy planning her year away in Spain she hardly seems to notice her at all. The only place Polly feels important is at Starmakers Drama Club, where everyone is busy working towards their latest production Crash - a thriller about a girl trapped inside her own computer with only a load of nasty viruses for company. But even though Polly manages to get the starring role, Mum won't change her mind about Spain, and Polly is dumped at Dad's. Spending hours playing alone on the computer, Polly discovers a fantasy game and creates a brand new identity for herself - she can pretend life's great! Diving headlong into her new virtual world, Polly withdraws from her school work, her friends and even her drama classes. Can her friends Phoebe and Monty B persuade her to come back to Starmakers before it's too late?
