Would you cheat to be popular?
Rolly Maloo is the most popular girl in school. Jenna would love to be her friend. So when Rolly asks Jenna to help cheat on a test, Jenna agrees--and gets caught. Should she tell on Rolly Maloo? Would you?
Janet Wong thoughtfully explores the issues of cheating, popularity, and integrity in this uniquely illustrated novel, which combines a traditional novel format with design elements of a graphic novel.
