It was a made-for-TV movie from 2005. I think I decided to watch it partly because the actress who plays Vanessa, Alexa Vega, was in the Spy Kids movies. Also, it's based on the book by Rachel Simmons, who, according to the Amazon review, "visited 30 schools and talked to 300 girls, [and catalogued] chilling and heartbreaking acts of aggression, including the silent treatment, note-passing, glaring, gossiping, ganging up, fashion police, and being nice in private/mean in public." Wonder how Mary Anne would have reacted if someone gave her a copy.

Pretty much every Lifetime movie with teenagers includes evil teenage girl cliques. I think I've read that book, or one similar to it, which is just about how crappy girls are to each other. The BSC was tame.
Just read this one last night and the girls were so B***** towards Mary-Anne! Just because she got a haircut and new clothes? They should have been more supportive instead of being jealous and we never got to see Jessi and Mal's reactions either. They were mostly absent in this book.
Favourite characters: Dawn, Shannon, Stacey,Claudia, Janine Favourite BSC clients: Charlotte, Vanessa, Arnold twins,Jenny and the Barretts. Least Favourite BSC clients: Perkins girls, the Pike kids, Jackie, Betsy Sobak Least Favourite characters: Jessi, Kristy, Mary-Anne, Karen Brewer, Cokie Mason, Cary Retlin.
That is funny Starrynight! I'd love to hear about it, too I remember not being much into Carolyn's machine though it was cool reading about her doing something science-y instead of just being told "Carolyn loves science." I did enjoy the Richard/MA parts of this book so maybe I will reread it soon.
