Harper Price is an overachieving high school student with the perfect boyfriend. Pretty, popular, and winning at life, Harper has all her ducks lined up and is ready to take on the world in her near-perfect life. But then she makes a dire mistake: she leaves her lip gloss at home on homecoming. This single mistake is the catalyst that leads her to witness a double murder, be kissed by a school janitor, and end up with super powers she never would have imagined having. As Harper is forced to take on the new responsibilities in her role as a supernatural guardian, she tries to balance being president of the Student Council, the other dozen clubs she's part of, her friends, boyfriend, and prepping for one of the biggest nights of her high school life: Cotillion.
