Goodreads Synopsis:

Carly Biels should have it made. She has a terrific boyfriend, good friends, and she's popular. Okay, her parents have really high expectations and her dad is a Princeton alum, but she's got decent grades, so that should help her get into his alma mater, right? Wrong. When the SAT scores are released, hers just aren't good enough. Panicked, she becomes involved in a shady deal to cheat next time by having the mysterious Taker fix her score. Before she knows it, she's committed, her boyfriend is pushing her too far too fast, and her friends are well on their way to their own successes. Feeling desperate and alone, the teen turns to super-smart nerd Ronald Gross for tutoring. To make matters worse, her best friend, the editor of the school newspaper, takes investigative reporting seriously when rumors of a cheating ring start floating around the school. As Carly's life turns upside down, she is haunted by the choices she has made under pressure and finds out that people may not be what they seem.


“When I got to his house, Ronald was waiting on the stoop, and before I knew it for sure, I smelled it. Smelled what, you ask?
A date, that’s what.” (Paperback, pg. 122)
