the story followed the story of 15-year-old Amy, who was dealing with an unexpected pregnancy that happened during band camp, with a guy named Ricky. she told her 2 best friends, Lauren and Madison. while they encouraged her to be honest with her parents, she decided to pretend that nothing happened. Ben was one of the geeks and decided to lose his virginity by starting to date someone. his sight fell on Amy across the hallway, and asked her to the dance. they got together, with Amy concealing the pregnancy from him.
a common plot for a drama, but somewhat beautiful and heart wrenching for being so realistic. some characters, maybe even most characters were cheesy. some lovable, others not so. some battled on the topic of sex, others desperately trying to get a certain someone. although it was a slow-paced drama, like most dramas were, Amy's life was in the spotlight. she was a great actress, playing a pitiful character that was often struggling to make the right choice like an adult, and also the far most believable character on the set.
