It’s practically a proven fact that most teenagers go through their first heartbreak in high school. Marco and Peyton have one thing in common; they’re both being cheated on by somebody they care about. The only difference is that Peyton has known about her boyfriend’s extra-curricular dating life for quite some time, whereas Marco is just now finding out about his unfaithful girlfriend. As the two spend more time together and take on different adventures, they help each other overcome their reasoning for staying with people who don’t deserve them. Once Marco and Peyton ditch their not-so-significant others, they start to fall for each other even though they’re on opposite sides of the high school spectrum. Marco’s nice and shy and Peyton’s hilariously witty and cynical, but as they come together they balance each other out quite perfectly through their coincidental heartbreak.
