Summary: Take an administrative snafu, a bad breakup, and what shall heretofore be known as "The Hot-Tub Incident," and you have got two unprepared sophomores on a semester abroad. For American party girl Tasha, an escape to Oxford may be a chance to ditch her fame as a tabloid temptress, but wading deep in feminist theory is not her idea of a break. Meanwhile, the British half of the exchange, studious Emily, nurses an aching heart amid the bikinis and beer pong of U.C. Santa Barbara. Soon desperation has the girls texting each other tips on fitting in, finding love, and figuring out who they really are.
