Two teenage sisters realize that being popular… rocks!
Teen coming-of-age stories will never get old. No matter the decade into which you’re born, the experience is universal. Popularity. Unpopularity. Coming to grips with who you are… no matter what your peers may think. Some classics have come out of this fount of angst: The Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink. Buffy. The Twilight Series (well, kinda.)
And there’s I’m Not Mandy. Teen Sandy – our protag – isn’t a model of awesomeness. Chubby and plain. Glasses and acne. She’s got nerd written all over her. Which is a real embarrassment to her sister, Mandy – whose perfect face makes her the coolest girl at school. When the script opens, it’s Sandy’s first day of high school. Mandy makes it clear that her sister should keep her distance, and not breathe a word about their blood bond.
Not a good way to start the day. Things quickly get worse when Sandy bumps into Adam Jones… the boy that Mandy’s been crushing on. Glasses get broken. Curses fly. Next thing you know, it’s all out war… With peace nowhere in sight.
How will it end? With blood – or redemption? Open the script… and find out.
