The main character finds herself in a difficult financial situation. Due to non-payment of taxes, she can at any moment lose the house where her childhood years passed. In search of work Maddie pays attention to an unusual announcement: it is necessary to be the girlfriend of a guy for some time. It turns out that the parents are very worried about their son, who is soon to graduate from high school and go to college. But Percy is too quiet and withdrawn, so he still hasn't had any relationships with girls. His parents realize how difficult it will be for him among his more relaxed peers. Maddie agrees to such a job and suddenly gradually begins to realize that her acquaintance is not so bad. In the end, the new relationship has a positive effect on each of them: Maddie becomes more responsible and serious, and Percy really grows up.
