In the previous book the principal shut down the PLS or Pink Locker Society which was a group made up of four girls (Bet, Jemma, Piper, and Kate) that secretly helps other girls with "girl problems." But Kate, Jemma and Piper restart PLS (Bet is busy hosting a school show called, "You Bet.") They have there meetings in a dark basement instead of the fancy office they had used before. They meet to answer the questions of other girls, but other things are on their mind as well, the Backwards Dance is coming up! As soon as Jemma finally gets enough courage to ask her longtime crush, Forrest, Piper had already asked him. But after the dance, Piper and Forrest decide they don't actually like each other. So then Jemma has Forrest and his family over to eat dinner at her house and she is so happy. Then Forrest admits that he wants to take a break from girls so he came up with the idea to get a fake girlfriend ( a friend that's a girl, but not going out with or anything). Jemma has high hopes she will be picked, but it never says so in the book if she is picked or not.
