Sixteen year old Teddy Gideon's junior year of high school isn't going very well. The new principal keeps changing the rules – he even wants to censor Teddy's cartoons for the school newspaper. Everybody's taking sides and as school becomes a competitive battlefield between kiss-ups and rebels, Teddy finds herself a particular target of the new unreasonable principal. To make matters worse, Teddy's life is complicated by a number of different boys. There's Zack, her friend from the newspaper, Billy, a childhood friend who Teddy fears is in love with her, and new attractive student, Devon who Teddy really likes… she's just not sure if he feels the same way about her.
As tensions between the students and the new principal escalate, Teddy struggles to sort out her love life and to stay out of trouble, while also trying to help her wayward friend Billy who seems more and more introverted and disturbed every day.
