Narrated in the first-person voice of Jenna's blog posts, "Awkward." captures the humor within the struggles and experiences everyone can relate to from their formative years. The series picks up in the aftermath of the accident as she must deal with a new not-so-fun stigma, while at the same time managing the other daily drama that comes with being a teenager. From a secret relationship with a popular guy, to being undermined by a mean girl, and parents who just don't get it-Jenna's misfortune will eventually serve as the catalyst for amazing change, but it's not without some missteps and mishaps along the way.
Every high school has one: the rich, popular bitch. But unlike every other mean girl stereotype, Sadie's got some cushion for the pushin'... which means there's more to love -- or in her case, hate. Despite her popularity and power, Jenna senses that Sadie feels like she never measures up. Sadie makes excuses for her bad behavior because she feels entitled. She thinks the world owes her for having to suffer a fat gene. She has been given everything... except the perfect body. This complicates Sadie's secret desire: to be with Matty. Her fixation on being perfect and aspiring to be the apple of Matty's eyes will make her do anything to squash Jenna. And Jenna's a little scared because Sadie's the kind of girl that can throw down...hard.
