A prank turns into romance as the high-school prom approaches. Can a dumb joke turn into true love? Stay tuned.


2. Reality Bites

Biting sarcasm, witty comebacks, and not-so-platonic friendship abound in this story of recent college graduates looking for life, love, and jobs that don’t crush their souls. Watch if you’re looking for a killer soundtrack.

My name is Gabrielle Martinez. I am a freshmen at the University of Miami. I am currently an English major and I aspire to be a lawyer. I enjoy writing about fashion, food, and entertainment.
