A Girl Like Her

Synopsis: 16 year old Jessica Burns has a secret that she's afraid to share with anyone - except her best friend, Brian Slater. For the past year she's been victimized by another girl - her former friend, Avery Keller, one of South Brookdale High School's most popular and beautiful students. What can you do when the world sees the image of a person but not the reality? With Brian's help and a hidden digital camera, the evidence of Avery's relentless harassment is captured and finally exposed-bringing both girls and their families face to face with the truth.

Another cloudy day, 7:45.

So did you hear this?

In light of all the hoopla

surrounding South Brookdale's

tenth ranking in the nation,

which, by the way,

totally amazing,

if you ask me.

I know.

It's pretty awesome!

An award-winning

filmmaker has decided

to include the school

in her important documentary

that examines the best

American high schools,

and South Brookdale

is the only public school


Let's hear it

for South Brookdale!

The students

of South Brookdale

are about to have

their 15 minutes.

Principal Harris.

- Yes.

- What an exciting time

for South Brookdale.

Well, we are

the first public school

ever to make

the top 100...

and not only 100,

we're Number Ten

in the country.

It was

a complete surprise.

Go, Maples, baby!

Go, Maples!

Number One!

Everyone's so excited,

and now we have pep rallies

coming up for it.

It's kind of cool 'cause,

you know, all of us are

together to celebrate

one big thing.

Good morning, ladies.

How are ya?

- Good.

- Good.

We're excited that

you have, uh, you've come

to see our little corner

of the world.

Getting ready, ladies?

Everybody good?

It's a good day.

- Is she in a hospital?

- I don't know.

I didn't even know anything.

I heard about it

in the halls.

There's rumors going


I literally just... just

talked to her the other day.

I keep thinking

about the classes

I've had with her

since I've gotten here.

Nothing happens around here

and, like, this happens?

Like, it doesn't make

any sense, you know?

Like, you see it

on TV shows, but when

it's actually happening,

like, at your school,

someone you have

a class with?
