The Launch Pad Feature Competition Presents…
Title:
Logline: In a bid to make his ex jealous and win her back, a high school senior invents a girlfriend on social media, but runs into trouble when he falls for the real-life girl he based her on.
Pitch: THE EDGE OF SEVENTEEN meets SHE’S THE MAN
:
Genre: |
Why to Read: The premise of this is not only brilliant in its comedic potential, serving as a sort of modern-day “Twelfth Night,” but it is also intensely of-the-moment, engaging with social media, catfishing, and changing gender politics with an intelligence and humor that is both mature and insightful. The dialogue is unique without sounding unnatural, capturing modern teenage cadence and technological slang with ease. Packed with humor, in the dialogue, the story, and even in the writer’s voice, this is a fun read from beginning to end and could be the next great coming-of-age teen film.
