"Awkward" is about the specific incidents in our formative years that define us -sometimes for the best and sometimes for the worst. The show centers around fifteen-year-old Jenna Hamilton, who, like many, feels invisible to her peers and desperately wants to find her place--which is hard to do in a day and age where fitting in means standing out. Unfortunately, Jenna's visibility comes on the heels of an accident that gives her a not-so-fun stigma. And while the stigma of her accident could be the curse of her life, Jenna's determined to make it her life's blessing.

The "carefrontation" letter that Jenna receives and is so frequently mentioned on the show reads as follows: Jenna,
As you are now, you could disappear and no one would notice. Below is a list of suggestions that you should seriously consider:
Number 1: Stop being a p****
Number 2: Your instincts suck. Second guess them.
Number 3: The only people more pathetic than you are your friends. Drop the dead weight.
Number 4: When you're pretty, you're happy. And clearly you're not happy.
Number 5: Pull your head out of your a** and stand out.
Number 6: Nobody likes the pitiful. Stop being such a drag.
Number 7: You have to be cruel to be kind.
Number 8: Make amends.
