LADETTE TO LADY meets BRITAIN’S GOT TALENT
Struggling to pay bills, stuck in a dead-end job and no boyfriend, Anna wants more out of life. Could getting fired change her life forever?
The heroine of Iman’s debut, Miss Manners, is working as a shop assistant/celebrity mascot at Harrolds’ toy department. After a shocking public event, 25-year-old Anna Borgström is fired and is soon left with no job, no money and no car. But after being set an assignment to enter – and win – the highly popular and televised Miss Manners contest, which aims to find the next headline-making IT girl, things begin to shine again – especially when handsome Henry appears on the scene.
Anna embarks on a journey that sees her getting a makeover and entering a very different world of primping, pampering and partying. Crises and complications attempt to undermine her endeavours, but with the help of friends and a cute new crush, Anna’s metamorphosis is set to be winningly magical.
Can the girl next door become the next big thing?
Miss Manners is a romantic comedy about ambition, friendship, mistaken identity, rivalry and love. Meet a host of characters that include an elderly comedian, a fortune teller, an eccentric hippy, an etiquette guru and a fairy godfather.
