Award-winning author Amy Goldman Koss explores what happens when one bad decision threatens to destroy everything.

Cheating on a geography midterm is only the beginning. It seemed simple enough—they were given the answers from last year's test and they used them. But Sarah and her friends got caught, and what was done without much thought leads to greater and greater consequences. Now they are facing punishment at school, tension at home, and no one is sure how or when it will end.


"An excellent springboard to provocative discussion or debate about the moral and ethical questions that this issue raises."—School Library Journal

When it all began, I had no idea anything was beginning. I just thought it was sweet that a guy I barely knew brought me the midterm answers out of the blue.
