Amanda is the daughter of the minister who lost her mother so she is responsible for sister and the home. She catches Jed's eye and would like to spend time with Amanda but her father forbids it because she is too young. Her life seems to crumble as her father starts spending time with someone. She misses a mother but not sure this is what she wants either. The best of all is the fact her three best friends are right there to help here.

There is a lot of repeating in this series but I guess with
