via Hallmark Press Release:
Jamie Kelly (Lind) marches to the beat of her own music video. An artistic and energetic glitter-loving diva in the making, the 11-year old’s vivid daydreams about how life should be often played out as full-blown musical productions. In her mind, Hudson Rivers (Mazouz), the eighth cutest boy in Mackerel Middle School, returns her affections. Angeline (Griffith), the prettiest and most popular girl in school, and other perfect people like her are banished so that average folk get their due. Real life, however, is somewhat different. As a result, Jamie pours out her innermost thoughts in her cherished diary and shares some of her feelings with her beloved Aunt Carol as well as her shrewd best friend Isabella (Jones), who may not be the best influence on her.
When Mackerel Middle School’s arts program is threatened because of budget cuts, Assistant Principal Devon announces the district’s first-ever Jump-a-thon fundraiser. Jamie sees her winning participation as an opportunity to not only save the arts program but to impress Hudson and, by beating Angeline, bring justice to ordinary people of the world. At the same time, she becomes the unwitting participant in one of Isabella’s schemes and her diary goes missing. As the story progresses, Jamie recognizes the importance of doing the right thing, learns not to judge by appearances and puts aside personal feelings for the greater good. She also discovers her own sparkling inner beauty, which was there all along.
