Fifteen-year-old Penelope "Penny" Woods dreams of being a writer, only she's concerned that she needs more life experience to work into her stories. She takes a liking to her uncle's friend Roger, a dashing but conceited college student who seems to have it all, and dreams of a big grown-up romance, but eventually his true colors are revealed. In the end, she realizes she'd rather spend time with her longtime friend Chuck, who's following his dream of being an aeronautical engineer.
