Ephram Brown can't seem to focus on anything. School is getting intense and his grades are suffering, but there's only one thing on his mind, and that's Madison. She's his sister's baby-sitter and four years his senior, but ever since Ephram kissed her at the DMV in a moment of I-just-got-my-license bliss, he's been trying to figure out how to get a gorgeous woman like Madison to date a half-geek like him. Ephram finally managed to get Amy Abbott out of his system, and now he is spending all of his time consumed with thoughts of Madison.
Meanwhile Amy has a distraction of her own -- Tommy Callahan. He has a history of drug addiction and illicit activities, but Amy refuses to judge him by rumors alone. The whole town has written him off as a delinquent, but she sees the good in him. And unlike everyone else in her life, Tommy understands her. The only problem is, he doesn't exactly make the picture-perfect boyfriend as far as her family is concerned. Amy and Ephram will both have to fight to be with the ones they want...and it's not going to be easy.
