The four years a girl is in high school can seem like the most important thing to her. For Winter, and her best friend Sloane, making it into the "popular crowd" is everything to them. Since their freshmen year at Ocean High, they have been unnoticed and invisible, tired of standing on the sidelines while the rest of the popular kids are taking advantage of their high social status. But as their freshmen year comes to an end, Winter and Sloane promise each other that they will do everything in their power to become popular as their sophomore year rolls around, including joining the cheerleading team. Will they stick together as best friends, and follow through will their high-status aspirations?
