Abstract:

It's hard to find a place for yourself when you're walking in the shadow of a school legend. That's the problem 15-year-old Laurel Quinn has faced every day of her school life. She loves her brother, Jack -- a jock, a brain, and one of the most popular guys in school -- but she's tired of being known only as his little sister. In an attempt to establish her own identity, Laurel becomes a reporter for the school paper. After months of invisible articles about school activities, she finally gets a break, writing an article that gains her the recognition she's been seeking. Then she stumbles upon a major cheating scam and -- convinced exposing it in print will win her even more accolades -- Laurel sets out to dig up the dirt. Little does she know it's going to fall all over her.
