Crunch Time by Mariah Fredericks

Crunch Time
First day of SATs prep, Daisy, Max, Leo and Jane walk out for different reasons at Daisy's instigation, and they end up hanging out and forming their own study group. They all go to the same super competitive school, but aren't exactly friends with each other.

Daisy is a jock who needs to bring her SATs up to get financial aid for college and she's known for dating jerks and playing basketball; Max is Daisy's best friend, he did well enough on his PSATs but his Dad thinks he can do better; Leo WANTS IT and he's willing to do all sorts of studying to get The Top Grade; Jane is the pretty daughter of a famous actress for whom everything should be easy but its not.

Through the craziness of junior year these four people bond, in a weird way, they all hate the SATs but know there is no way out. They prep, they study, they obsess together. Then The Day comes and they all present their SATs... all good, for a moment, then one of the smart seniors of their school confesses someone in the junior class paid her to take the test in their stead.

Who was it?

Everyone has a suspect, more than one has a motive... but Who was it?

Well, I'm not going to tell you, sorry, you'll have to read to find out.

Solid book, not my favorite Mariah Fredericks.
