Clumsy, shy Roger Barrett has always had a crush on the glamorous, wealthy Lila Fowler, but it's hopeless. She's the queen bee, and he secretly works as a janitor after school. The only attention Lila ever pays to him is to make fun of him in front of her friends.
When Roger wins the qualifying heat for a big race, he becomes an instant school celebrity. To his surprise, Lila begins to chase after him, but he knows if he runs in the race finals after school, he will lose his job. Should he give up Lila's attentions? Can he risk being fired? Will Lila notice him if he's no longer a star?
