Julie Pastel learns there are advantages to taking risks. Burkie Vivid learns that fame comes to those that least expects it...as does a true friend. Julie spouts Shakespeare when annoyed or anxious, never dated in high school, and views the romantic world through books and movies. She comes from a modest background, is not athletic, is on her way to college on Scholarship, never has had a true friend and never takes risks. That is about to change when she meets the outrageous, outgoing, outspoken, wealthy Burkie. Burkie has plans for the uptight Julie to introduce her to the world of dating.
