Based on the popular book "Boys are Dogs" by Leslie Margolis, Zapped follows Zoey Stevens, a skilled dancer and straight-A student who is having a hard time adjusting to her new life once her mom remarries. Now she has to live with three messy and rambunctious step-brothers, a loud step-dad and an unruly dog. The boys at school seem even worse, particularly the group of misfits who make up the JV dance squad that she is forced to join. Nothing seems to be going right for the savvy teen, until she discovers the dog training app on her smartphone can now somehow control boys. Convinced life would be better if the boys around her would change, Zoey uses her newfound power to command the boys in her life to behave better, all except Jackson Kale – the one guy at school who stands apart from everyone else. Now Zoey finds herself asking if the app is really the answer to fixing her family life, managing the boys in school and making her dance crew the best.
