Awkward high school sophomore Samantha "Sam" Baker struggles to get through the day of her sixteenth birthday, which her entire family forgets because her older sister, Ginny, is getting married the next day. She is also plagued by her ongoing infatuation with the very popular and very attractive senior, Jake. 
 
A running subplot involves a geeky, insecure freshman who continually (and unsuccessfully) tries to bed his love interest, Sam, to satisfy a bet with his friends.
