Straight-laced schoolgirl Sandy fell for Danny Zucco at the beach. When they are unexpectedly reunited at the same high school, Sandy learns that Danny is actually the leader of a tough-talking gang.

Unexpectandly reunited with summer love Danny at her new high school, Sandy Olsson can't believe how different he is. Can the new Danny Zucco, the leather-clad, tough-talking leader of the T-birds really be the boy she met down at the beach? Why is he behaving so strangely towards her? Perhaps her new friends Frenchie and Rizzo, both members of the super-cool Pink Ladies gang, can help her develop some street cred to win his heart back?
