Becca would like to skip right over high school and avoid all the first dates, first loves, first failures and whatever other scary firsts she might encounter.
She worries that she might lose the friendship of her three BBFs and has practically sworn off guys. But on the very first day of school she sees Brent and suddenly she's lovestruck. Problem is, Brent has a long-time girlfriend, Claire--not that Becca would ever get up the nerve to talk to him anyway.
Meanwhile, Colt finds herself working with Colt on everything from study sessions to the school paper, and develops a comfortable friends-only relationship with him. Her relationship with her friends, however, is getting more complicated, especially when Randi confides that she is thinking of doing "It" with Justin, who just happens to have a very jealous girlfriend.
One day Claire offers Becca a special gift--and that changes Becca's whole outlook.
