Plot Synopsis

After numerous failed attempts to become popular at Hester High School in Austin, Texas, BFFs Karma and Amy are mistakenly outed as lesbians, which launches them to instant celebrity status. Seduced by their newfound fame, the girls decide to keep up their romantic ruse, as they work on their now-complicated relationship. Karma is an optimistic high-school sophomore, who fears she and Amy are falling off the school's social ladder, until they get invited to the hottest party of the year. Amy, a cynical tomboy and Karma's loyal best friend, agrees to continue to fake a lesbian relationship with Karma, but realizes her feelings may be deeper than she ever thought. Amy's soon-to-be-stepsister, Lauren, feels her assets are under-appreciated and believes she belongs at the top of the social ladder. At school, Shane is the most popular kid and his gaydar rings loud and clear when he meets Amy and Karma, so he takes the new couple under his wing and tries to make them homecoming queens. But Shane's best friend, Liam, is a commitment-phobe who finds the perfect girl to pursue when he meets Karma, a super cute and seemingly unavailable lesbian.
