Kevin Johnson is a sheltered boy who attends an exclusive Catholic school, even though he isn't Catholic. His interests are: girls, specifically Bonnie McGee, who he hasn’t worked up the nerve to ask out yet; martial arts, that he hasn't mastered yet; auto racing, that he hasn't been able to openly watch on television yet. His father, for some odd reason, has an aversion to the sport. Kevin and Bonnie end up going out, though, and he saves a child’s life on their first date. Bonnie is very impressed.
But instead of spending a blissful summer with Bonnie, Kevin is sent away to live with grandparents he barely knows. He's hoping to at least learn the secrets his parents have been keeping from him, but his grandparents were coerced into silence. The next door neighbor girl, however, has no qualms about discussing anything, and somehow knows all of the dirt on his family. The problem is, not only is she so far out of his league that it's embarrassing, she seems to enjoy embarrassing him.
