When Miranda gets braces, she’s afraid that Tommy, her boyfriend, is going to dump her.  Tommy is scared that she’s going to turn down his invitation to the big dance.  So what's left for the two teens to do...but send messages back and forth through their friends!  As the miscommunications pile up, will they be able to brace themselves and face each other, or is this the end of their two months of bliss?
