Indulge in the perils of teenage angst as MTV's latest hit, Awkward, debuts its first season onto DVD. Awkward centres around high school loner Jenna Hamilton, played by Ashley Rickards, who narrates the series through her blog posts and captures the humour within the struggles and experiences everyone can relate to from their formative years. Jenna, like many teenagers, feels invisible and wants desperately to find her place in the social hierarchy that is high school.
The story picks up in the aftermath of Jenna's accident which has left the student body mistaking her misfortune for a suicide attempt. With the stigma of her accident teamed with the other daily drama that comes with being a teenager could be the curse of her life, Jenna's determined to make it her life's blessing. Described by the New York Times as 'an exquisite mix of satire and sincerity" Awkward sets itself apart from other shoes by taking a refreshing real look at teenage life. No vampires, no teenage pregnancy, just a teenager trying to navigate life somewhere in the social middle.
