Four young people at Laurel Sharon High School have more in common than their long-term friendships. All of them are coming up short lately in the homework and study skills department.
Meet Kiley... She's always assumed that she could coast through school on talent alone, but now that she can't even make it through her latest design software tutorial, it might be time to rethink her attitude toward her studies.
Manny... hasn't completed an assignment on schedule in months. To him, school has always been a joke -- something he's bluffed, dodged and manipulated his way through; but with an athletic scholarship now at risk, suddenly school isn't so funny anymore.
Rainey... lives in the shadow of her brilliant parents, who have recently passed away. She lives to study, but it's gradually dawning on her that she really has no life at all. What good are straight A's if you're always miserable inside?
Jo Jo... is disgusted with his life -- his uncle, his school, his grades, you name it -- but most of all, he's disgusted with himself. Why does he always sabotage his schoolwork? Why can't he get his act together? Why does everyone think he's a washout? Call it a matter of pride, but now he definitely has something to prove.
Enter Reece Somerset, an ex-high school English teacher and quite possibly the world's greatest tutor! Now she's focusing all her energies on teaching young people how to study and learn. To top it all off, she's even cool! Not quite what Kiley, Manny, Rainey and Jo Jo were expecting. Now, they don't want to miss a single tutoring session...
