Plot Summary

Perky, perfect Carolyn and her Alpha Omega Pi sisters plan to win Sorority of the Year by impressing the Greek Council with a killer charity: coaching mentally challenged athletes for the regional Challenged Games. When Carolyn's assigned to coach Pumpkin she's terrified at first, but soon sees in him something she's never seen before: a gentle humanity and honest clarity that touches her soul. To the horror of her friends and Pumpkin's overprotective mother, Carolyn falls in love, becoming an outcast in the process. As Carolyn's "perfect life" falls apart, Pumpkin teaches her that perfect isn't always perfect after all. Written by Press kit

Trivia The sorority Alpha Omega Pi is actually based on UC Berkeley's Alpha Omicron Pi sorority. The writer Adam Larson Broder lived next door to their house when he went to college there. See more »
Goofs When Kent Woodlands is playing in his tennis match against Arizona State, his score is announced first when he is receiving serve (ex. 15-Love). The server's score is always announced first in tennis, thus it should be announced Love-15, etc. See more »

Quotes Carolyn McDuffy: I've caused everyone a great deal of grief. You were all right. What I did with Pumpkin was against nature. And now everyone is suffering because of it. I ruined rush. I ruined our charity. I ruined the formal. Kent is probably injured beyond repair. And now, AO Pi is runner-up again. I'm sorry. I'm leaving the sorority. I'm quitting SCSU. I'm transferring to a community college.
Julie Thurber: But Carolyn, you're a senior. You can't transfer to a community college. You have too many units.
Carolyn McDuffy: Then I'm transferring to Long Beach Tech.
[gasps and exclamations of horror from her sorority sisters seated around the dinner table]
Julie Thurber: Long Beach Tech? Oh, my God!
Julie Thurber: [Motioning the girls to be silent] Ssh.
Julie Thurber: Carolyn. We're having lamb chops. Medium rare, your favorite. Would you like to join us for your last dinner?
Carolyn McDuffy: No thank you, Julie. I have to get my life straight. I have to leave the lamb chops... the sisters... Kent... and Pumpkin, whose trust I betrayed. Goodbye everyone.
