What happens when anyone can make a video of you saying anything?

They are the rulers of Greenpoint High's geekdom, overachieving in every way, and it's an intense competition to see who will be valedictorian. One the entire school is invested in. That is, until Rumor Has It, the anonymous gossip site, posts a video of Dara accusing Will of paying someone to take the SAT for him.
When the video goes viral, suddenly Will's being investigated, and everyone's wondering how he pulled off cheating on the SAT. But Dara swears that she didn't say any of those things, which seems a little hard to believe since it's her in the video.

- The beginning of the summary sounds like a great rivals to lovers high school romance à la NEVER HAVE I EVER, but then suddenly it takes a turn and becomes a thriller instead?!!?
