Kendall Fletcher lives on a potato farm with her parents in the small town of Cryer's Cross, Montana. She loves theater and dance, and has even applied to Juilliard, but doesn't really expect to get accepted. She also really enjoys soccer, and is on the soccer team at school along with her best friend and sort of boyfriend, Nico. Nico plans to become a nurse and doesn't care who teases him about it.
