Olive Penderghast was a typical American high school girl, until she decided to be, well, A-typical.
I mean, what’s your average, everyday girl to do when her popular, detail-seeking best friend Rhiannon wants the 411 on Olive’s weekend, and the boring reality is nothing to brag about? Can’t a non-entity, a perceived zero, an anonymous girl like Olive tell a little white lie if it gives her just a tiny taste of that magical prize sought by every teenager: popularity?
Soon, rumors of Olive’s promiscuity are being greatly exaggerated.
Within minutes, the student body is all a-twitter, linked-in and face-booked over Olive’s supposed indiscretions. While it’s not necessarily the kind of notoriety Olive was looking for, becoming the center of attention proves to be tantalizingly addictive, so much so that Olive decides not to deny the rumors. In fact, she embraces them, further playing the part by sporting a sexy new look and biting new attitude. After all, she knows the real truth, and her non-judgmental parents trust her. So she’s not really hurting anyone, is she?
