A Korean-American girl travels to Seoul in hopes of debuting in a girl group at the same K-pop company behind the most popular boy band on the planet in this romantic coming-of-age novel about chasing big dreams, for fans of Mary H. K. Choi and Jenny Han.

Candace Park knows a lot about playing a role. For most of her life, she's been playing the role of the quiet Korean girl who takes all AP classes and plays a classical instrument, keeping her love of K-Pop and her obsession with SLK to herself. But she has a secret that she's been keeping from the world: She can sing. Like, really sing.

So when Candace enters a global audition held by the biggest K-Pop label in the world, the last thing she expects is to actually win. And convincing her parents to go against everything they believe in is nothing compared to what's next. Soon she's forced to ask herself: Does being one in a million necessarily mean that you can handle the grueling life of an idol trainee?

Under the strict supervision of her instructors at the label's headquarters in Seoul, Candace must hone her performance skills, learn to fluently speak Korean, and navigate the complex hierarchies of her teammates to within an inch of her life. And in the all-out battle to debut, Candace is in danger of planting herself in the middle of a scandal lighting up the K-pop fandom around the world.

If she can't do it, what will that mean for her family who have sacrificed everything to give her the chance? And is a spot in the most hyped K-pop girl group of all time really worth risking her friendships, her relationships, and everything she holds most dear?
