Emma Monolona is independent, speaks her mind, and doesn't care what anyone thinks or says about her. She's pretty, popular, and has never had a boyfriend. But it's not that no one has asked her out. It's because she's never had the guts to say the magical word: yes. Everything starts to change when Darrel Cole, a mysterious, outgoing, attractive teenage boy, transfers to her highschool and bumps into her. From here, Emma has the feeling that she's going to see Darrel often and may even have a "thing" for him. But when a new teacher by the name of Mr. Hutch takes the place of Emma's English teacher, she faces the obstacle of not falling for him.
