Meg, Andrea, Ray, Bergen and Casey -- dorm sisters with summer plans.
Meg: help Mexican orphans.
Andrea: publish newspaper articles.
Ray: get Michael's attention.
Bergen: work with wolves at the zoo.
Casey: survive as head camp lifeguard.
Those who don't reach their goals pay for a pizza party at the end of the summer.
Sunburn, bubblegum in hair, adorable mischief-makers, "mean girls," lunatic newspaper customers, temporary blindness, political games and other assorted problems detour the girls from their goals. Life sneaks up and surprises them with opportunities they never expected -- along with five men who find them more than interesting. Will they survive their summer and reach their goals? By the time they return to their dorm, the girls realize that life is what happens when you make other plans.
