Aspects of this plot are definitely pretty problematic, but it passes the test nonetheless and manages some surprising emotional depth in its subplots (about family, growing up, and college/future aspirations).

- Laney and Mackenzie talk about Laney's mother dying and how she missed out on having a woman to teach her "girly" stuff
- Laney and Misty discuss art and Laney's artistic aspirations a couple of times
- Taylor and Katie talk about prom and Taylor's family legacy of winning prom queen

Ha, that sounds so sweet! In the classroom scene, Laney barely speaks, but Misty and another girl tell Laney she should kill herself because then her artwork will increase in value. At the party, Laney finds Misty sick in the bathroom and Misty asks Laney how it feels to know that rich Misty got an art scholarship.
