This is a really interesting movie. It's a thriller, to a
certain extent, and the story has lots of twists and turns.
The story starts out innocently and then things go from bad
to worse. The story is about some high school teens
who decide to cheat on their college entrance exam by hiring
a nerdy smart girl to take the test for them. The main

a nice, normal girl who has become friends with a bitchier
girl named Kylie ("Awkward"'s
Laura Ashley Samuels).
Kylie seems like your typical mean girl, but her parents put

Paula Trickey is cast perfectly as Kylie's mother, who's
Things spiral out of control for
the kids, since Kylie has been very mean to Meredith in the
past. The movie turns very shocking and violent in several
places, like most Lifetime movies. I always enjoy these fun
flicks on a Saturday night. You will definitely want
to watch this and see where the thrill ride takes you.
