Harriet, with the help of best friends Sport and Janie, manages to turn Skander’s every misstep into fodder for her postings. But when her blog entries begin to take on a life of their own, it’s up to Harriet to set the record straight before she unwittingly brings down her father’s film and Skander’s career.
