Plot: What's the story about?

This is the story of a 19-year-old girl (Amanda Bynes) who has been raised in New York City by her mother (Kelly Preston), a professional singer, who decides that she wants to find her long-lost British father (Colin Firth) in London, who's part of a very hoity-toity British aristocratic social circle. Once she gets there, however, it doesn't take long before her hip American lifestyle disrupts his entire life. Can she find a balance in the relationship between her two parents, find her own piece of mind, and along the way, possibly fall in love as well? Perhaps most importantly, does she have a chance at being the Debutante of the Year?
