The story follows Tara Adams, an introverted high school junior who alone in her room at home casts herself as Radio Rebel, host of a nightly podcast on which she showcases her passion for music and self-espression. However at school, a shy Tara can’t bring herself to speak in class, especially when the newly-popular rocker Gavin is around. Nor can she imagine anything more intimidating than when her drama teacher teams her in class with Gavin and his prom date, the school’s cliquish queen bee, Stacy.

A Disney Channel Original Movie Premiere
Frenemies” follows the lives of three very different sets of friends dealing with the ups and downs of friendship. The first story follows Halley and Avalon, best friends who are overjoyed when a publisher wants to turn their fashion blog into a magazine, but their friendship is put to the test when they learn that the magazine only wants one of them to stay on as senior editor. The second story follows the inseparable science-whiz Jake and his dog, Murray. Jake is excited to introduce Murray to his new science project partner (and crush), Julianne, but there’s something about her that Murray just doesn’t like – and the feeling is mutual. In the last story, tomboy Savannah, who comes from a large high-energy family, meets privileged uptown girl Emma, who looks like her twin. The two girls become fast friends and decide to trade places for a while, but realize that life on the other side isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be.
