Rebecca, a high school sophomore, figures that after her mom marries her crush's dad, she'll move into his house where she'll be charming and witty and Pres will see her as more than just his younger stepsister---he'll realize he loves her as much as she loves him.
Rebecca volunteers to write the school play that her step-father will be directing, thinking that she'll not only get closer to her step-father, but that writing a starring role tailored to Pres will help him see her in a new light. She also writes the female lead specifically for her best friend, Celeste, who wouldn't dare make a move on Pres the way Alicia, Celeste's understudy, would. In the meantime, Josh, Celeste's brother, volunteers to help Rebecca. She appreciates his help, but is oblivious to his feelings about her.
