Things aren't going too well for Paula right now. She's new in town, has stress at home and is unhappily in love. And the other girls arae not only more good-looking than she - they are all involved with boys and even have hot stuff going on. She's the only one who's left behind. And whereas the others go to Cancun for the holidays, she's supposed to go to her aunt somewhere boring on the shore of Lake Michigan.
But then a lot of things start happening - with Matthew and love and her body. And she discovers that a lot of stuff is not at all the way the others have been telling her.
