Lina Cruz is a tough, sharp-witted Latina cheerleader from East L.A. who transfers to a posh, West Los Angeles high school after her widowed mother remarries a wealthy man and Lina not only finds herself a fish-out-of-her-environment at her new high school but she faces off against Avery, the snobbish and ultra-competitive all-star cheer-leading captain to qualify for a spot on her new school's cheer-leading team with the help of her new sheltered stepsister, Skylar, and her former teammates whom she calls up to help her.

Catalina's said she is Cuban-American and when she speaks she uses words or slang that are not Cuban at all.
