Shy Randi Hinton Can't believe it - a rumor's going around that handsome, popular Ned Taggert likes her! She barely has time to think about him, though, because she's so nervous about having to make a speech for English class before the entire student body. As a scholarship student, Randi must keep up her grades if she wants to remain at exclusive Brockenborough Prep. She'll simply die if she stutters and turns red in front of everyone.
Then Ned offers to give Randi some pointers on public speaking, and his first lesson turns into a great first date. Once Randi thought Ned was out of her league, and now he's her date for the annual Christmas dance! But the dance is a disaster, and Randi's confidence takes a plunge. She knows that to keep a boy like Ned she'll have to take a crash course to overcome her shyness!
