Meet Hazel Parker, your typical good girl. Never drinks or took drugs. Not much of a party gal. Believes in relationships. Aces all her classes. The only thing different about her than the stereotypical good girls is that she is beautiful in the inside as well as the outside.
Then, there's Adam White, your typical bad boy. Drinks, parties, and plays with girls' hearts like the strings of a guitar. The only thing different about him than the stereotypical bad boys is that he has a reason for the way he behaves.
But what happens after a contract is signed and the two decide to try to change each other's lives for the better? Will Adam be able to teach Hazel to enjoy life's greatest moments? Will Adam be able to show Hazel her beauty and that she is more than the good girl she pictures herself to be? Will Hazel be able to teach Adam the meaning of commitment? Will Hazel be able to show Adam that he too deserves to be cared for and that he is more than the bad boy he pictures himself to be?
And finally, will Adam be able to teach Hazel how to live, will Hazel be able to teach Adam how to laugh, and will Adam and Hazel be able to teach other how to love?
