Sixteen-year-old April, a high school junior, and her friend Vi, a senior, get a crash course in reality as the list of things they should not do becomes a list of things they did while living parent-free in Westport, Connecticut, for the semester.
When two 16-year-old girls manage to finagle their way into living without parental supervision at a house on the beach for half a year, what could go wrong? When April's dad and new wife relocate in the middle of her junior year, she concocts a plan to stay with her friend Vi and her mother, neglecting to tell her father that Vi's mom will be away. Written in ten hilarious, energetic episodes, the girls are overjoyed to spend as much time as they want with boyfriends, throw parties, and live it up. However, things are more complicated than April expected, and dramas of all kinds crop up.
