Dead Stacy’s tragic drunk driving story may have become a cautionary tale for Palos Hills High School students, but getting behind the wheel is still an issue for Jenna, Matty and their “Awkward” pals. Every time one of the gang fires up his or her engine, disaster seems to follow in the form of breakups, drug busts, shattered glass and more.
