Nicole (Melissa Joan Hart) and Chase (Adrian Grenier) live next door to each other - but are worlds apart. Nicole is up on the latest fashions; Chase, on the latest protest. She wouldn't miss a pep rally or basketball game; he can usually be found moping in some darkened coffee house.
Nicole wants a dream date with the star basketball player. But she got dissed. Chase's girlfriend is smart and beautiful. But he got dumped. Now that they have something in common, Nicole and Chase reluctantly join forces to navigate the land mines of high school love. Their scheme: date each other to attract the interest and jealousy of their respective romantic prey. But in the midst of planning a gala centennial celebration, Nicole and Chase find that the one they always wanted was closer than they ever realized.
