Story centers on a set of EastSide friends who dub themselves the SFRP (or "Sally Fowler Rat Pack", after the girl whose apartment they gather in), or UHBs, for Urban Haute Bourgeoisie. They drag into their number a newcomer, Tom, who openly disapproves of them but nonetheless shows up every night for a private gathering after black-tie parties and dances. A self-serious but insensitive young man, Tom inspires the first-time love of Audrey, a quiet, good-humoured literature lover who feels a bit outside the group. Tom repeatedly humiliates her as he continues to pursue an old flame, Serena.
