"Who sat me next to Estella?"
When eight eccentric 17-year-olds arrive at their school's college/career center to take the absolute-most-important test of their high school lives, they wind up creating and destroying friendships, exposing their deep-rooted suburban angst, and singing and dancing like whoa.
