Lea Benson is anything but your typical teenager. While others are hooking up, she's at home studying. While others are spending their weekends partying, she's at Speech and Debate tournaments. She's not necessarily a loser, but she isn't popular either. Aiming for the sky and above to be Valedictorian in her senior year, Lea finds it difficult to even have a life. In between spending time with her best friend, her job at the local diner, volunteering at a nearby elementary school, and keeping up with her clubs, she has no time to find love. But what happens when love finds her?
Lea doesn't know about Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, or Niall Horan, otherwise known as One Direction, she doesn't have time to care, but her best friend does. So when Lea happens to come across these five British/Irish heartthrobs, she has no idea. It's a story of a young teenager going from booksmart nerd to love's new disciple. Facing difficult decisions, battling the ferocity of the media, charging the battlefield known as high school, falling in love, finding new friendship in a world she never thought she'd experience while still trying to maintain a 5.0 grade point average, will Lea manage to find her own fairy tale ending? Or will the reality that life doesn't always have happy endings kick in?
