Storyline

Ambitious high school senior Samantha Hodges is a serious journalist, both for the school paper and for the yearbook, but she's just as serious about her friends, Nate, Gillian, and Rudy, all of whom are vying with her for a full-ride local scholarship to college. Very close to her mother, Emily, who is the school's guidance counselor, Samantha finds her reporting taking an investigative turn when two of her classmates--and contenders for the scholarship--are murdered.

Cute "who done it"
23 March 2019 | by corvette-45921See all my reviews

This is a really cute who done it type movie based on high school kids, it actually feels like it was more of a film class project done in drama studies. The friends are all close with love interests and future college dreams, however "someone" has other plans and things go sideways. I don't want to say it was really awful, but they did try? and in the end isn't that what really matters.
