Kass Kennedy is in trouble.
Her manically ‘up-and-down’ dad has finally lost it. He’s entered her for The X Factor. This would be slightly less of a crisis if: 1. She could sing; 2. Any tiny bit of her wanted to be a star, and; 3. If she hadn’t just lost her two best friends over a boy in brown boots.
How is she going to get out of it with her sanity, friendships and family still intact?
Hilariously explores the hopes, dreams and non-existent singing talent of 15-year old Kass, but also depicts a family coping with parental depression – and is funnier, more moving and original for it.
