Summary Sophomore newspaper reporter Bobby Funke is assigned to write a cover story on Paul, the popular class president and top athlete. After a stack of SAT tests is stolen from Principal Kirkpatrick's office, Funke publishes an exposé that names Paul as the prime suspect. But when Paul's girlfriend, sexy senior Francesca, makes a move on Bobby and even his former bullies play nice, Funke begins to doubt the star jock's guilt and everyone else's motives. When his investigation uncovers a campus-wide conspiracy that threatens to take down students and teachers alike, Funke must decide whether to tell the truth or enjoy his new status.
