"Mer, how did you get from being a small town girl from Texas to being a the 'Golden Girl' of the music industry?" the interviewer asked.
I bit my lip and slightly giggled. "Well you see, it all started with a silly dare."

America 'Mer' Johnson, a small town girl, was an anti-social teenager. Because of this, her friends dared America to post a video of her singing on YouTube, one of the most popular video sites in the world. Little did she know, she was about to become a big popstar, Mer.

Follow America 'Mer' through her crazy road into becoming famous and a punk-rock band that follows her every step.


2. Chapter 1

It was Monday, the worst day of the week ever. I sat at the kitchen table with my mom, eating pancakes that she had made.

God they were delicious.

"So, are you girls heading into town today? I heard Kensie mention something about going shopping." Mom said, taking a sip of her coffee.

Like my mom, I was 5'5 and had curly dark brown hair. The only thing I had of my father was his eyes, which was brown eyes. You could say I was a plain Jane.

I nodded my head. "Yeah, she said she wanted to look for a dress for prom."
Mom's blue eyes shined with hope. "Have you decided if you're going to go?" I rolled my eyes at the question.
"Mom, you know me. I'd rather be at home watching a Harry Potter marathon." I said, taking a sip of my chocolate milk.  What can you say, I'm a nerd at heart.

"America, you really need to go to these social events at your school. You can't just have Kensie and Sarah be your friends forever. Socialize and make more friends." Mom sighed, before getting up from the table. "I'm heading to work. Before you go out, please feed Chester. Poor thing looks like he's starving." with that she headed out of the room.

I stood up from the table and placed my plate in the kitchen and headed up stairs to my room. I groaned as i fell on my bed. I closed my eyes for a minute, hoping to get some shut eye before my friends arrive.

"Mer! Mer! You need to get check your channel right now!" I heard a voice shot from out side the door. I groaned as I saw Kensie and Sarah bursting in. I gave them a questioning look. "What are you guys doing here?" I said.

Kensie grinned at me before making her way towards me. She grabbed her phone out of her pocket, taping away on it before shoving it in my face. I furrowed my brows in confusion before taking the phone and glancing at the screen.

I looked at Kensie. "It's my video, now what about it?" 
Kensie pointed at her phone, almost impatiently. "Look at it again!"
I looked back at the screen and scanned the page.


My eyes widen at the sight. I scrolled through the comments.


Jk09: You have an amazing voice, Mer. Can't wait for more! :)

5SOS_lola: Love your voice! You should sing one of 5SOS's songs!

Shawn Mendes: You have a beautiful voice! 


My voice caught in my throat. I glanced at Kensie and Sarah. "Oh my gosh, Shawn Mendes commented on my video!!" I squealled out in shock.
"We know!" Kensie and Sarah said in sync.
We all began doing the happy dance around my room before crashing onto my bed.
Sarah glanced over at me with a huge smile on her face. "You do know what this means right?"
"That I have to make more videos?" I guessed.
Kensie squealled in delight. "Aww my little princess is growing up so fast! You're going to be so famious! Now let's go shopping!"


I would find out later how right Kensie was about me being famous.
