It's the first day of school for the twins, Callie and Charlie. Charlie was held back in ninth grade due to his autism. While Callie, his sister, got to move up to tenth grade.
Charlie will you stay after for a minute
Charlie was so happy to have friends. Even when his so called friends, Steve and Justin, asked Charlie for fifty dollars for pizza. Charlie wanted to help them, so he gave his friends the money.
Callie and Charlie went to the mall with their mom. While shopping, Charlie had his hands in his pants because it was comforting to him. Charlie didn't think it was that big of a deal, but he was getting strange looks from other shoppers.
Charlie's homeroom teacher needed to talk to him about his behavior. She asked Charlie to stay after, but Charlie did not understand what he did. Before speaking to Charlie, his homeroom teacher asked for Callie's advice on the best way to communicate with her brother.
Callie was sitting at lunch when she saw Charlie giving Steve and Justin the fifty dollars for pizza and wondered what was going on. So Callie's friend, Samantha, walked over there and started to talk to Charlie. When she came back, Samantha had the money and gave it to Callie.
Charlie started to notice Samantha as more than his sister's friend. He wanted to ask her out which was a big step for him. After she said yes, he got so excited! He had his dad teach him how to talk to girls which didn't really help. After their date, Samantha asked Charlie to go to homecoming. Of course, Charlie said yes!
