Laura Corbett and Damian White are loners. Kids make fun of smart, sarcastic Laura for her weight and artistic Damian for his tendency to sweat through his shirts. Calista Getz, however, is the prettiest and most popular girl in the whole school. But when Calista wakes up just before the school dance with the BIGGEST pimple she has EVER seen right in the middle of her face, Laura and Damian are the only ones who don't ignore her. In fact, they seem to see not only past her pimple, but past her popularity, too. Together, they'll challenge the school's status quo!
