I thought this was a pretty good movie overall. Sarah Lind did a good job playing a much younger character of High School student Mia. It also had a nice plot twist near the end that I didn't see coming at all.
On the other hand, the movie's creators went so far trying to make teen modeling web sites look bad that it became unrealistic in places. There is no chance that the students at Mia's High School would have ridiculed her for being a (non-nude) model. Today's teens are much more jaded about sex in the media than that. Britney Spears wears far less in her videos and concerts. If anything, she would have been more popular with the other students for being a model, especially the boys.
