Oldest sister Erica dreams of being a pop star if she can only overcome her secret love of all things uncool. Then there's middle child Barry who's just as in touch with his emotions as he is with his sick rap skills, which is how he landed Erica's best friend and the hottest girl in school, Lainey, as his girlfriend.
