  • 14-year-old Lisa and her friend Wendy follow handsome men and, from their license plates, manage to find out the guys' names and numbers. Lisa is eager to start dating, but her mother doesn't think Lisa is old enough. She doesn't want Lisa to make the same mistakes she did as a teenager. One night while getting some groceries, Lisa runs into the handsome Richard. She gets his license plate and finds out his number. (Just as she'd done with all the other men.) This time she tells Wendy maybe they could fall in love, mostly as rebellion since her mom won't let her date. Lisa begins calling Richard, and disguising her voice.
