WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

Sierra Burgess (Purser) is the most unpopular girl in high school, but when she is mistakenly sent a text by handsome jock Jamey (Centineo) who thinks he sent it to popular cheerleader Veronica (Froseth), they begin communicating back and forth over the phone, soon falling in love with each other. However, when Sierra becomes worried about what will happen when he finds out that she’s not really Veronica, she recruits the real Veronica to help continue her romance…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?
