Besides her own clothing line called Dream Out Loud, Disney Channel starlet already has a production company July Moon in place, but if it comes together, Gomez also wants to play Lennie Walker, an introverted 17-year-old bookworm and band geek who plays second clarinet and lives in the shadow of her fiery and adventurous older sister, Bailey.
But when Bailey dies suddenly Lennie is catapulted into a center stage of her own life, and becomes torn between two boys, one her sister’s grieving boyfriend and the other a talented French musician studying in Paris.
