Sixth-grade friends Lyla and Jamie, both new to their school, stand up for each other when a clique of popular girls bullies them online.
Lyla finds a great friend in Jamie on her first day of school. Then she makes the cheerleading squad, and suddenly the most popular clique of girls in her grade invites her to join them. Before she knows it, she's left Jamie behind.
