Not only is there a popular crowd, but even the teachers show blatant favoritism. With her acerbic wit and acute sense of social justice, Violet decides to take matters into her own hands and use her first amendment right by starting a school tabloid with her new friend Cornelia exposing the embarrassing secrets of the popular kids that rule the school. Along the way she mistakenly publishes information on her only crush, and soon finds out that the pen is mightier than the sword. Now Violet must try to heal the deep wounds she has cast.

I liked it a lot~
16 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Personally, I think that this movie is great. Some people might find it a little boring, but that's because it's about a school paper. I know that a lot of people think like this: "School paper? Booooring. Why do we need one, anyway?" But take it from a girl who took Journalism. It's hard to keep a high school newspaper up and running, especially with budget cuts. This movie sheds light on how effective a school paper can actually be, and therefore, it has earned my respect. There are actual "A-listers" in real life, but not nearly as bad as these ones...however, there are a few. I like this movie mainly because it has an important figure in the form of a newspaper/tabloid. And the fact that it shows just how manipulative people will be to gain popularity.
