Laurel discovers her passion for investigative journalism when she writes an article for her school paper about the homeless man who's been living at the school. Eager to write more articles with impact, she launches an investigation of a cheating scam at her high school. Laurel's efforts elicit hostility from her classmates. Nobody is interested in seeing her article go to print, not even her own brother. It is evident that the cheating is widespread, and Laurel, caught up in the thrill of the investigation, is willing to commit social suicide to get the story, but her ultimate discovery changes everything.

Another good story by Kristin Butcher. Laurel is investigating a cheating scam at her school to write a newspaper article and in the process discovers something that she'd rather not have. Some things are better left alone , and cheating really doesn't pay !
