Story intro

Brooks Rattigan (Noah Centineo) is a high school senior, with dreams of getting into Yale, while his father (Matt Walsh) wants him to go to the University of Connecticut, where Brooks has a full ride. He works at a sub shop with his best friend, programmer Murph (Odiseas Goergiadis), but financing his college dreams proves troubling. Brooks seizes the opportunity to make some extra cash by posing as the boyfriend of the self-assured, combat boot-loving Celia Lieberman (Laura Marano) and find he has a knack with his adaptable personality. He meets Shelby (Camila Mendes), who is under the impression that Brooks is wealthy. He makes it his goal to win her over. He and Murph launch an app, selling himself as the plus-one for all occasions. After finding out that Celia has a crush on Franklin Volley (Blaine Kern II), they set up a plan to fake break-up, in which each of them gets to be with Shelby and Frank. As business booms for Brooks, Murph feels neglected and cuts Brooks off, and switches his shift at the sub shop. Celia sets up an interview for Brooks at Yale, and is upset when she finds out that he researched the dean previously and lied about being an amateur beekeeper. Brooks justifies it, saying that it's no different than what he's been doing with his app. Celia realizes that Frank is not the person for her, however doesn't tell Brooks. When they conduct their fake break up, she is hurt by his words, and slaps him. Brooks is under the impression that it's all an act. Following their "break-up", Shelby asks Brooks to accompany her to her school formal. Brooks realizes that Shelby is far more privileged and blind to his life than he had initially expected. The two find it difficult to relate to one another and hold a conversation.
