The battle royale begins. But is Blaze ready for the fallout? Blaze is tired of spending her life on the sidelines. All she wanted was for Mark the Soccer Stud to notice her. But not as that nerdy girl who draws comics and drives a turd-brown minivan. When her BFF texts Mark a photo of Blaze in sexy lingerie, it definitely gets his attention. After a few hot dates Blaze is doodling hearts and contemplating her imminent girlfriend status when Mark dumps her. Blaze gets her revenge by posting a comic strip featuring uber-villain Mark the Shark. Mark then retaliates by posting her "sext" photo, and suddenly Blaze is gigabytes deep in an epic online battle to the (social) death. That life on the sidelines is looking pretty good right about now...
