THIRTEEN-YEAR-OLD Joe is the ultimate trophy kid. His adoptive parents are Hollywood's favorite power couple, Academy Award-winning actress Greta Powell and actor/director/political candidate Robert Francis. Life with them has been one big photo-op since Joe became a war orphan at the ripe old age of three. And what better way for Greta and Robert to celebrate how far Joe's come--and how much they've helped him--than for Joe to describe his experiences in a moving autobiography?
Of course, Greta and Robert don't actually intend for Joe to write the book himself. Or for him to include any unflattering details about them. That's why they've hired an experienced professional for the job. But Tom Dolan is no ordinary writer, and he's determined to help Joe tell the "real "story of growing up with the two most famous celebrities in America. Even if it means going back to Joe's homeland, with his image-conscious parents in tow. . . .

"From the Hardcover edition."

From the Publisher:
As an orphan of war adopted by Hollywood's most famous power couple, thirteen-year-old Joe is excited about what the future will bring, but when his adoptive parents talk about making a movie of his life, Joe is certain that the trip back to his homeland will be anything but a normal family vacation.Since his adoption by American movie stars, Josef's carefully scripted public life has hidden the isolation he feels at home, but writing a book reveals much about his adoptive family and the one he lost during the war in Croatia.
