Lexie Howe has the ability to freeze time. She doesn't know why or how but could care less, given her potential to prevent awkward situations with less than a blink. The only downside is the loneliness attached to keeping her secret. When she finds out that the most pined-for boy in school, Cam Lawson, can also manipulate time, Lexie believes she can finally fit in. However, when they get in the way of a scientist, and Lexie becomes contaminated by experimental waste, her power goes out of control. She and Cam are pressed for time to fix the problem before she goes crazy.
