Robin: With a mother who's more absorbed in her singing career than in her own daughter, Robin is left to her own devices when the two move to Nashville, Tennessee. That's where her mother hopes to strike gold - and where Robin finds nothing but trouble. Teal: This rich girl will do anything to get her parents' attention - even break the law. But after she takes things too far for the guy she adores, Teal loses her parents' trust completely - and is treated like a prisoner in her own home. Now there may be only one way out. Phoebe: She's the girl from the wrong side of the tracks, trying to make it in a fast new crowd. She moved in with her aunt to make a fresh start. But now her biggest mistake may be to trust a charming rich boy who could ruin her life - and destroy her reputation forever.
