OMG! I have been waiting for a fun teen series just like this one to come along. Awkward. (yes, there is a period after the word) is everything you could hope for from a teen series in that it is quirky, funny, emotionally all over the place and filled with wild clothing styles. The series centres around the lives of a select few members of the Palos Hills High School junior class. Their lives, friendships, romances and fashion errors are all up for grabs. You’ll definitely be cooler just by watching this one. Plus you’ll feel like your life is less chaotic and angst filled. Basically it is a win-win proposition.
