Maddie can’t be bothered to do her math assignment, and she doesn’t study for her math test. Instead, she copies the assignment, and cheats on the test.
Maddie has dreams of being a singer, and she’s easily distracted by her favourite television show, Road to Stardom. Although her grades are low, she doesn’t think future singers have to study. Her dad believes Maddie doesn’t work hard enough in school, and her brother Julian blames Maddie’s low marks on her poor study habits. Being surrounded by a genius brother and a back-to-school mom with very good study habits doesn’t sway Maddie one bit. She lies to her classmates to obtain the assignment answers and the review notes. With the review notes in her pen, she decides to cheat on her math test with her friend Nicholas. She comes to realize cheating is a lot of hard work, and it makes her feel sick, but she continues on with her plan. After her plan backfires, she gets the opportunity to experiences a new study program. This new program has a strict teacher, but Maddie learns to appreciate her and the new study habits. The benefits that come Maddie’s way far outweigh the unearned free time and high marks cheating allowed her.
